“Anyone who’s been to the Sports Interactive office will know what massive Pro Evolution Soccer fans we are.” says Miles Jacobson, Managing Director of Sports Interactive. “So it was a real thrill when we heard that there was mutual respect from the teams behind the games and that they wanted to use our player stats.”
Dave Cox, European Product Manager of Konami says: “Sports Interactive’s library of player and team data is hugely impressive and the most comprehensive we have seen in the football games market. The use of that data in Pro Evolution Soccer is a tremendous asset to us and will ensure the game becomes the definitive football action title this winter.”
Pro Evolution Soccer will be published for PlayStation 2 on November 16th. The latest version of Championship Manager (Season 01/02 Edition) will be available for CD-ROM from October 12th.
