FIFA 13 update out for PS3; Patch notes inside – Lot of bug fixes and connectivity issues solved

FIFA 13 is a game that is played by millions of people, and EA has released a patch to stop some of the whining.

The patch fixes a lot of bugs which are detailed below in the patch notes and some of the minor issues are also fixed. The connectivity always has been a bit iffy online even though it was improved in every iteration, and FIFA 13 during launch had a lot of problems due to the sheer amount of people playing the game.

Some of those issues are now being fixed but some people are reporting more problems. However, it’s not something EA can do much about, since there’s pretty much constant problems being pointed out.
