FIFA 15 Coins matches the launch performance of FIFA 13 by securing four straight weeks at No.1, holding off Bethesda's The Evil Within in the process.

The Shinji Mikami action horror charts comfortably ahead of Take-Two's Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel at No.3, which is likely suffering from not releasing on PS4 and Xbox One.

With two new releases to contend with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor slips to fourth place, followed by Forza Horizon 2 in fifth and Alien: Isolation which drops four places to sixth. Destiny takes seventh spot, Driveclub drops to eighth, then comes Minecraft: PlayStation Edition and Codemasters' F1 2014 is the only other new entry at No.10.

Skylanders: Trap Team, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and NBA 2K15 all exit the Top 10.

The FIFA 15 Coins app for Android and iOS has been well received by the fans, especially after its makeover with the controls, making it much easier to engross yourself within the game and progress even further. However, there are still times when you struggle, forcing yourself to do something you did not want to do, and that is to get an in-app purchase, which range from £0.69 – £69.99 . We can fully understand why users get upset with these in-app purchases because people have been known to run up large bills, although that is a choice and so you have to try and stay in control of that spending – easier said than done in the heat of the moment, or frustration.

However, there are always options before you start to part with your money, such as learning as much as you can about the gaming app by way of checking out some FIFA 15 gameplay tips on how to progress, or watching a walkthrough video to help guide you, or as a last resort, use some FIFA 15 tricks and cheats. We have come across a rather interesting article here where they offer some much-needed tips for FIFA 2015 Ultimate Team, and while some of it is pretty straight forward, you will be surprised at how often people overlook them. Searching for a decent FIFA 15 walkthrough for Android and iOS opens up a whole can of worms because there are so many videos to help get you through the game, and while we have embedded just one for you below, you need to get over to YouTube because there are scores of videos to look at.

Finally, and a last resort are those FIFA 15 cheats, or tricks if you wish to call them something different. There are many sources offering these cheats to you, although we feel this is one of the best sources, well within reason. Using cheats on such gaming apps is not as simple as it is for consoles, and so you have to download another app in order for it to be implemented within the FIFA UT app.

A new FIFA 15 Coins football season, a new FIFA. Hate EA all you want, but who are we kidding? People probably love the FIFA franchise more than they like playing football themselves. But who can blame them? The game is mad addictive, and particularly thrilling when playing online or against friends. The FIFA franchise has never been more exciting than it is this time around with FIFA 15; the addition of better goalkeepers, advanced ball physics, and an interactive, dynamic environment to play in takes the in-game realism to the next level.

Following the release of the FIFA 15 Ultimate Team game which you can download now for Windows and Windows Phone, you can also download the FIFA 15 Xbox One companion app on your phone. The app allows you to manage your FUT squads, bid for and sell players, and buy packs in its market. You also gain access to your EA Sports Football Club activity, news, and notifications. A new feature called Concept Squads introduces a way for players to powerfully manage and plan the squads for their winning teams.

To get the app running, you must have an Origin account connected to FIFA 15 on either the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 or 3, or PC. You’ll also need a FIFA Ultimate Team club of your own of course. The companion supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Dutch currently and replaces the older FIFA 14 companion app, as EA tends to do once a new iteration of the franchise is released.

If you meet those requirements, what are you waiting for?! Download the FIFA 15 Companion app on your phone by hitting the download link below and get the game up and running on your console or PC, if you’ve even shut FIFA 15 off since release of course.

As part of the IncGamers FIFA 15 Coins review process, I’ve had to dick around with various in-game and third party settings to obtain smooth 60fps gameplay. Since the review itself isn’t ready to go yet (I’ve only had code for about 24 hours,) and the game is coming out in Europe today, I thought I’d contribute to society by sharing my findings on how to eliminate frame drops and micro-stutter.

This guide should help anybody who has adequate system specs to run FIFA 15 at 60fps or above. If you’re trying to run the game on a machine that’s under EA’s recommended specs then this probably won’t help, and the stuttering is probably just standard frame-rate drops.

The Problem

Last year’s FIFA 14 had one additional option in the PC launcher settings menu that, as it turns out, may have been fairly important. It’s the “wait for vsync” option, and you might just about be able to make it out in the image below.

For many people, the best way to get smooth, 60fps gameplay in FIFA 14 was to uncheck that vsync option, lock to 60 in the settings and then enable vsync on either the Nvidia or AMD control panel.

Unfortunately, FIFA 15 doesn’t currently allow that option. Locking to 60fps in settings also applies whatever weird (and apparently quite crap) vsync method EA has opted for. No matter what Vsync options I select in Catalyst Control Center for my HD 7870 card, choosing the locked 60fps gives me frame stutters in-game.

An additional frustration here is that, for whatever reason, choosing that locked 60fps option puts all the goal kick, free kick and penalty situations in 30fps. This looks and feels a bit weird and shit.

Unlocking the frame-rate solves the 30fps free kick problem, but makes matters even worse over the rest of the pitch. At least it did for me. During play, it produced even more stuttering and even resulted in quite lengthy gameplay pauses. Not terribly playable.

FIFA 15 Coins EA has revealed it's removing Trade Offers from FIFA 15's Ultimate Team mode. A forum post explains the company took the feature out in a bid to combat those using it as a work-around for item-trading. For those not in the know, Trade Offers enabled you to bypass the auction system in order to trade cards with friends directly. Though EA complains about barter deals, in practice it's more commonly used by friends helping each other out, meaning the change could controversially penalise those using it innocently.

"Although some honest players used this feature to trade with friends, it became one of the methods used by coin sellers to sell and move coins," it reads.  "Account phishers also abused Trade Offers by moving stolen players and coins after wrongfully gaining access to unsuspecting FUT player accounts. This will also address 'bid bumping', where people would try and trick others into bidding far more than they wanted for a player item.

"It was a tough decision, but this is the right step towards improving security, showing cheaters the red card, and keeping FUT safe for all FIFA fans," the post concludes. It also confirms the maximum number of Transfer Targets is now 50 player items, meaning that's how many outstanding player bids you'll be allowed at any one time.

FIFA 15 is set to be the second title in the franchise to hit next-gen, and EA shows every sign of having put everything it learnt from last year's iteration into making the best title it can.
