Free 5 vs. 5 online play for FIFA 08

EA flicks the switch on Be A Pro: Online Team Play on Xbox 360 and PS3

A new free online mode for FIFA 08 on PS3 and Xbox 360 that allows ten players to play in a single match over the 'net has been launched.

"Be A Pro: Online Team Play in FIFA 08 enables up to five friends on five different consoles to select and take control of their own individual players on the same team, supported by AI teammates, to play against up to five rivals playing on five different consoles of another team", EA explains.

It adds that the mode is automatically available when your Xbox 360 or PS3 is connected online.
