The FIFA 15 demo is out for a number of consoles. 

The PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Xbox One have received the latest EA Sports soccer simulator demo, and it is free to play. 

EA will eventually release the demo to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the PC. 

The playable teams in the demo are Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea FC, Borussia Dortmund, FC Barcelona, Boca Juniors, Paris Saint-Germain, and Napoli. 

Spoof website BBC Sporf has discovered that a new “Park the Bus” pre-set tactic is available in the FIFA 15 demo. “Parking the bus” is a phrase associated with ultra-defensive football, and was first coined and often practiced by current Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

So far, no one has called out BBC Sporf, so it appears that EA Sports has decided to give players a bit of a laugh and that added bit of “realism” to the game. 

FIFA 15 will be available on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC in North America on September 23, 2014, and in Europe on September 26, 2014.
