'Pro Evolution Soccer 6' (ALL) Sells Big In Europe

The Pro Evolution Soccer series is renowned for its realism, and Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 is abundant with new gameplay additions. Player AI has been massively upgraded, while the physical side of play has been refined.

Released on October 26th, three million copies of the game were shipped across Europe to meet demand. Initial sell-through of the eagerly-awaited title was excellent, as hundreds of thousands of new users spent the last weekend familiarising themselves with the new moves and techniques PES6 offers in abundance.

Such high sales also saw Pro Evolution Soccer 6 secure the Number One slot in a number of territories, and also enjoyed a significant sell-through increase over last year’s game. The debut of the series on Xbox 360 has been well received, too, with the first next-generation version of Pro Evolution Soccer performing incredibly well, while demand for both the PlayStation 2 and PC-DVD versions has also grown.

“We are delighted that, once again, Pro Evolution Soccer continues to be so well accepted,” commented Kunio Neo, President of Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. “In an industry known for its constant changes, Pro Evolution Soccer is one of the few brands to increase sales year on year. Globally, it is now the best-selling product within Konami Digital Entertainment and we are extremely proud to be contributing such tremendous figures towards the ongoing success of Konami. Now we look to the PSP™ (PlayStation┬«Portable) version continuing the success in December, and the Nintendo DS version in January.”
