Konami Breaks 360 Records In UK Charts

The release of Pro Evolution Soccer 6 (aka Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007) has seen Konami finally overtake Electronic Arts' FIFA series as the most popular soccer action game in the UK. The game experienced more than 23 percent more sales than the recent FIFA 07, despite being sold on significantly less formats.

Despite this, sales for the PlayStation 2 version were slightly below that for Pro Evolution Soccer 5, with the difference being made up by the Xbox 360 version. Despite controversy over excised content, compared to the PlayStation 2 game, the Xbox 360 version recorded the highest first week sales of any 360 game so far in the UK – easily beating previous record holder Dead Rising.

...the REAL issue is:

1.) How strong will sales be after the first month? Most people bought it not knowing how flawed the 360 version was. After word gets out, sales will drop off drastically.

2.) How many 360s were sold in Europe because of this game? THAT is the $64k question, because it's the ONLY reason MS wanted the exclusivity.

Can you tell me what the issues are? Not a big fan of these football games but just fancied a change!!

If you've never played pro evo before you probably wont notice the difference. Its just little things like no edit teams in Masterleague, not many stadiums etc. But its the gameplay that makes Pro evo ace, just well realistic

Cheers for that will wait for COD3 GOW & RSV then Pro evo 6 if I have the time!!!!

I AM NOT a Sony fanboy....FAR FROM IT, in fact. I'm still pissed at Sony for the pathetic letdown that was the PoS2, and I pre-ordered my 360 last MAY, for my Day-1 purchase.
I'm simply stating the them or not. If it were a PS2 title, I'd be saying the same thing. ;)
