FIFA 09 is a sports association football simulation video game developed by EA Canada. It was released in late 2008 for the PlayStation 2, 3, Portable, Xbox360, Wii, Nintendo, Zeboo and Microsoft Windows with the tagline "Can you Fifa 08"
Among the improvements in the new FIFA are improved responsiveness that allows for quicker release of the ball, greater urgency in off-the-ball running, a new jostle system that takes into account the strength of the players when going shoulder-to-shoulder, and subtle animations that enable players to take first-time shots.
Another of the edition's biggest changes is a completely revamped collision system, which calculates speed, weight, and power when the players collide, as each player will have their own individual strength and power statistics depending on their body characteristics.
New goalkeeper technology has also been added which allows for better positioning.
