Widely regarded as the definitive football game for any home format, Konami of Europe's multi-million-selling Pro Evolution Soccer 4 is to enjoy a new lease of life when it makes its budget debut as part of the PlayStation 2 Platinum and Xbox Classics labels.
Originally, released in Autumn 2004, Pro Evolution Soccer 4 has established itself as the most realistic football game available. Its intuitive gameplay, coupled with players that resemble and move like their real-life counterparts, has made it a legend of the field. All the moves associated with the beautiful game are featured in Pro Evolution Soccer 4, with players bypassing defenders with deft touches or quick passes, threading inch-perfect crosses to well-positioned team-mates, and side-stepping challenges or driving home shots during the course of each hotly-contested match.
Both the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions will be reissued on May 20th, priced just â‚¬29.95, offering football fans another chance to sample the intricacies of Pro Evolution Soccer 4's supreme gameplay. Xbox owners can also take on rival fans online via the console's Xbox Live system, which facilitates full online one-against-one ties.
"The release of Pro Evolution Soccer 4 as part of the Platinum and Xbox Classics ranges marks a welcome return for what is fast becoming a legend in gaming circles," commented Kunio Neo, President of Konami of Europe. "Accumulated sales for the game across Europe have now exceeded an incredible three million units, and we hope that its re-release at this budget price will see many more football fans introduced to the delights Pro Evolution Soccer 4 has to offer."
