FIFA 13 Controls and skill moves PS3 – XBOX 360

Updates – Other FIFA pages

About a year or so ago, EA sports and a number of other publishers stopped including the little instruction manuals within their games. To be fair not many people read these anyway and a lot of the information that people were after were not even in them so no great loss. However other than the tutorial section within these games such as FIFA 13 there was no real way of finding out all the controls without looking them up on the internet. So here we are, a list of the FIFA 13 controls for both XBOX and PS3, broken down into sections of dribbling, passing, shooting etc. and at the end of the article the full list of 50 skills moves that are available in FIFA 13 and how to do them. For XBOX controls LT = Left Trigger, RT= Right Trigger, LB = Left Bumper and RB = Right Bumper. PS3 controls are as shown.
