Konami takes EA Head-On (via WATGame.com)



Konami has gone ahead and announced the ever popular soccer sim, ProEvolution Soccer (PES) 2009 due for release this October. To rival that the dudes at EA have gone ahead and announced its nemesis, in the form of the eagerly anticipated successor to the technically brilliant and adept FIFA 08 which is to be released somewhere in October itself. What seems imminent now is that the two giants are heading towards a head-on collision!!!


It’s was not long time back that we saw some ruffled feathers in the EA camp. During the pre FIFA 08 era, the dudes at EA were really weary about the challenges the developers from Konami threw at them. PES was considered by far the most photo realistic soccer sim ever to hit market. For God’s sake we even saw the strikers cringe every time they took a shot at goal and defenders gawk at the ball every now and then (Have a look below if you do not believe me).

Then a stage arrived when we experienced the jerseys of the players sway with every movement they made. That was the amount of realism that went into the making of these PES games. As my friend Po in the movie Kung Fu Panda puts it” It is said that his enemies would go blind from over-exposure to pure awesomeness!” This was what happened eventually with FIFA. But instead of getting bogged down, they took stock of things and as they say rest is history!!!

    Hi Shayon, what a great blogger you have become! Congrats. Thanks for introducing me to this site as well. Having sometime here in Houston, I saw all Euro2008 football matches, as there’s nil load shedding. It would be quite different at Ludhiana, watching

    Thanks a lot for your wishes.

    Just a thought for you, tho – the FIFA 08 mentioned int he article above is actually a computer game :-)

    Dear Shayon, Thanks for the correction. I laughed heartily and loudly at myself (incidentally your birthdate 070708) for completely wrongly understanding FIFA here.
    Very Happy Birthday again. Take care.
