EA Sports revealed the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of FIFA 10 will have better graphics than the PC version. The official excuse is that too few PC gamers have a system fast enough to run the game with next-gen graphics:
New information about EA's FIFA 10 - unfortunately it's no good news for PC gamers: In FIFA 10 there won't be Next-Gen graphics for the PC - just like it has been the case when FIFA 09 was released. This is what FIFA Soccer Blog learned during an interview at the Community Day in Vancouver.
According to the developers only ten percent of the FIFA gamers would have a PC that is fast enough to run the game with Next-Gen graphics - so EA would have to suffer the loss of sales volumes. The calculations are based on worldwide data so local differences are not taken into account.

Funny no other developers of PC games have this problem.
Console graphics have been maximized. Thus over the next few years they will get older and uglier while PC graphics is improving continuously. Developers unable to adapt will be reporting dismal sales in 2010.
