Well I'm pissed, after waiting since August for EA to fix the problem, they closed my case and claimed that "unfortunately your system does not meet the minimum requirements to play FIFA 12. Windows 7 systems require over 2gigs of system memory at the very minimum to play this game and your system does not have enough."
I replied the following to them just now:
This case was closed despite the issue NOT being resolved. Ever since I purchased and installed FIFA 12 on 08/24/12, I've not been able to play the game once. I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. The demo runs just fine but the game wont play at all. I hit the play button and get the splash screen at 800x600 resolution (it appears at 1080p in the demo) and then it just returns me to my desktop. I tried updating my drivers and even reinstalled my 360 controllers. But I keep getting the same problems.
The agent, David W., who took it upon himself to close stated that my "system does not meet the minimum requirements to play FIFA 12. Windows 7 systems require over 2gigs of system memory at the very minimum to play this game and your system does not have enough." My system setup is the following:
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Corsair High Perform Vengeance 16GB (4 × 4GB) DDR3 1600MHz RAM
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU 750 @ 2.67GHz
XFX Radeon HD 6850 Black Edition 1GB DDR5 PCIe
Asus P7H55-M PRO
My system EXCEEDS the requirments stated by the agent. Keep in mind that in this same system I play Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Crysis 2, and Battlefield 3 at max settings (at a resolution of 1920x1080) with zero issues. There is no way that my system can play those games with no issues but simple game like FIFA 12 is suddenly too much. The game is clearly broken. What are you going to do to fix it?
Am I missing something here? Or am I write in assuming that my system should play the damn game just fine?
