Ships Ahoy - FIFA Soccer 06

EA announces that FIFA Soccer 06 has shipped in Europe and the sports sim will be available in North America on Tuesday:


Best-Selling Soccer Franchise Is Now Available in Europe and Hits Shelves in North America on October 4

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – September 30, 2005 – Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS), the world’s leading interactive entertainment software company, announces the release of FIFA Soccer 06 under the EA SPORTS™ brand. FIFA Soccer, one of EA’s top-selling sports franchises, includes major enhancements to the gameplay and management modes, making FIFA Soccer 06 “The Total Soccer Experience.” The game is available in stores in Europe today, and worldwide the first week of October.

FIFA Soccer 06 delivers a combination of attacking gameplay, complete customization, the deepest Manager mode ever, and pure authenticity. Intuitive gameplay enables you to command every move of your player with pinpoint accuracy. Passing, shooting, and tackling is now more responsive than ever and enables you to trap, shield, and dribble like a world-class soccer player.

Freddy Adu, Ronaldinho, and Omar Bravo are featured as the North American cover athletes and represent the global depth of this franchise. Adu exploded into the world of professional soccer as the youngest U.S. athlete to sign with a professional sports franchise in the past 100 years when he signed with Major League Soccer in November 2003. Ronaldinho was named FIFA World Player of the Year in 2004 and played an integral part of Brazil’s 1999 Copa America team at the age of 19. Bravo is widely considered to be one of the most exciting young players on the world stage. He is already a key player for his home club, Chivas Guadalajara, and is now starring for the Mexican national team.

FIFA Soccer 06 was developed by a multi-national team of soccer aficionados at the EA Canada studio in Vancouver, B.C., and is shipping on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft, the Nintendo GameCube™, PC-CD, PSP™ (PlayStation® Portable) handheld entertainment system, Game Boy® Advance, and Nintendo DS™.

I take Konami's PES4 anytime, THEY at least know how to get it right. A supreme soccer game in all aspects

It's too bad that EA has the general sports gaming population snowed into thinking EA sports is 'where it is'. It's amazing how many people will flock to a game because it's on TV, and even more assume that a name associated with it (Madden, for instance) makes it pure gold.
