FIFA 12 update causes game crashes on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC versions

It would appear as though sports gamers got a little more than they bargained for when they downloaded the latest FIFA 12 patch

An update for FIFA 12 is causing a number of gamers across all platforms to experience game crashes with the root of the problem blamed on what EA Sports calls mismatched data.

The hefty update was made available yesterday with users quickly responding on the official FIFA 12 forum that it had begun to cause problems with the issue affecting PS3, Xbox 360 and PC versions. In a statement made on the EA forums a EA Community Manager had this to say:

"We believe this is caused by mismatched data in Creation Centre content downloaded before installing the patch. To solve this issue, delete this content from your system and then re-download it."

To fix the root of the problem across all platforms EA advises you follow these instructions:
