    Canadian captain Christine Sinclair is finally in the game!

    EA Sports says 'FIFA 16', the new version of its soccer video game, will feature 12 women's national teams for the first time in the 22-year history of the franchise.

    FIFA has been getting alot of bad press this week from its corruption scandal, but just in time for the 'female' World Cup that starts next week, EA Sports has released some 'good PR' for FIFA, announcing for very first time in 22 years, their next video game will include 'female' players after spending over two years working on it, scanning in their faces, changing the engine and other details.

    To read about more of the 'technical obstacles' that EA Sports had to overcome, check out the in-depth article by the Guardian linked below, that goes in all the long years of designing that it took to get the 'female' side of FIFA working in their new video game.

    So what you think is this good news for fans, will it increase the amount of sales for their already multi-millon dollar franchise?
