FIFA 15 bug turns soccer into a farce (update)

Update: EA has explained the bug. See below...

A new sports video game often means a new hilarious bug.

This one, for FIFA 15, emerged this week on player Koldo Sagarzazu's YouTube page, who said it came from the Windows PC version. EA said the bug only affects players who have given short names to their PCs.

In the bug, players converge in the center circle, including goalkeepers, and go a bit nuts. A spokesperson for EA sports said, "There is a rare bug affecting a small number of FIFA 15 fans playing on PC and who have named their PC with four characters or less. We are working to address this bug as soon as possible. In the meantime, fans experiencing this bug can rename their PC using more than five characters to resolve the issue."
