Gamescom is currently taking place in Germany where all of the biggest games to be released this year are being shown off to the fans.
EA Sports took the opportunity to showcase loads of the changes that have been made to the game's most popular mode; Ultimate Team, on Tuesday and it's bad news for Playstation 4 owners.
The Xbox exclusivity of 'Legends' players from the past to use in FIFA Ultimate Team is something that has been bothering PS4 gamers for years, but that is set to continue as some major additions have been made to the roster.
FUT 17 sees the addition of Marc Overmars, Paul Scholes, Jamie Carragher, Alessandro Del Piero, Ole Gunnar Solskjær, Carles Puyol, Juan Sebastián Verón, Emmanuel Petit, Rio Ferdinand, and Luis Hernández. In addition to the 10 new Legends in FUT 17 exclusively on Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles, previous Legends including Pele, Giggs, Beckenbauer and more will be returning in FIFA 17.
Paul Scholes is going to be frighteningly expensive.

Elsewhere, two new games modes have been added in 'FUT Champions' and 'Squad Building Challenges':
FUT Champions is the all-new way to compete in FIFA 17 for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. Each week, qualify for the Weekend League and compete for in-game rewards. Consistently showcase your skill and climb the Monthly Leaderboards to earn some of the biggest in-game rewards.
Complete challenges and earn unique in-game rewards in all-new Squad Building Challenges (SBC). Test your squad-building skills by choosing from Basic, Advanced, or League specific challenges. Check in often, Challenges will be updated throughout the season.
But the biggest news for us is the ability to download your FUT squad on a friend's console and play a match against their FUT squad. FINALLY!
There are more ways to compete against your friends in FUT 17. For the first time ever, your opponent can download their FUT squad to use in a local offline match. The couch bragging rights are at stake in FUT 17!
It all sounds great, but these changes will matter little if the gameplay doesn't get the attention it needs. Hopefully we've got a game that lives up to the hype, but we won't know until we get our hands on it when the demo launches in a few weeks time.
