of Konami using the word soccer in the title instead of futball/football ?

duarteq4329d ago

Europeans don't need to "think" cause we all know what the word soccer means...
Who cares if it's called Football or Soccer ? isn't it the same sport ?

Roger out.

Not alot, its still the best football game out there.

Also Pro Evo Scoccer sounds better than Pro Evo Football.

Still i fail to see why american football is called football as you only use you feet to kick the ball a few times a game. Surly they could have come up with a mroe suitable name. Like Stop-Start ball or something

Wasn't this known when PES 2007 came out in the US??

resistance1004329d ago

PES 2007 doesn't exsit, it was known as Pro Evo 6. This years one is the first one to use a year in its title

I would buy it.
Get the code right Konami, not the name.

I was looking forward for "Wining Eleven 11", that would've been so cool but I guess Konami don't agree.
