EA is feeling as confident as ever about the yearly FIFA vs PES battle as FIFA 08 and PES 7 prepare to do battle for another season.
"I'm happy to say that we're comfortably on top in the whole FIFA vs Pro Evolution Soccer battle," marketing manager Dan Holman told UK trade mag, MCV. Our market share has kept on increasing over the past three years, and more and more core gamers are being converted to FIFA all the time."
The bullishness doesn't end there either. "We've sold 1.7 million copies of the last FIFA and Pro Evo is lagging behind on just over a million," continued Holman, adding, "With the new platforms in place, we're confident that we will attract even more football fans to FIFA - both existing gamers and the wider, non-gaming football community."
We expect the new FIFA 08 game to be revealed any time soon. If you want a taste of what's new for the title, check out our recent interview with EA's director of football, Andrew Wilson.
