If you have FIFA 16 on the PlayStation 3, you may be having problems with Football Ultimate Team mode. For some PS3 owners, that mode has been offline for two weeks now.

EA Sports acknowledged that the game has had problems. The mode was taken offline on November 20 so the Football Ultimate Team economy could be repaired. “After investigating throughout the weekend, the vast majority of players are now able to return to FUT,” says EA Help. “We have isolated a number of transactions affecting a small percentage of players which require further analysis…[A small percentage of accounts] are still in the process of being analyzed. We appreciate your patience while we work through this process.”

EA Sports is offering each FUT player a gift of one free Draft Token Pack and at least two free Premium Gold Packs to make up for the problems.

The PlayStation 4 version does not seem to be affected by the issue.
