Achtung Baby! EA’s 2014 World Cup simulation says Germany will win it all

EAsportsYesterday, EA declared that the 2014 World Cup would be won by Germany. EA simulated the Cup, testing all 32 teams using the conditions for the upcoming weeks, using the football/soccer engine from their 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil game. The final outcome was that Germany would win over Brazil with a score of 2-1. This would mean that Germany would be the first nation from Europe to win the Cup in South America.

The sports simulation giant predicted correctly that Spain would win four years ago, but if that doesn’t give you enough faith in them, you can make your own predictions at EA’s interactive bracket.

2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil is available now on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Check out the full press release (which includes predictions for every match after the Group stage) for the simulation after the jump. (more…)

Three new retail releases will compete for your gaming dollar this week…

RedLynx’s platform-racing series makes the jump to next-generation consoles with the release of Trials Fusion. The game will be available in a “Deluxe Edition” that includes a Season Pass so players can gain access to future downloadable content for both the PS4 and Xbox One.

Also available next week is 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The actual World Cup is still a few months away, so you’ll have plenty of time to prepare yourself with EA’s quadrennial tie-in game.

Finally this week, Atlus will release Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars for the 3DS and Vita. If the title didn’t tip you off, Conception II features an absolutely insane storyline that includes evil gods, a group of god-fighting cultists, and a whole lot of baby-making.

Yup, definitely a Japanese RPG.
