FIFA is not the only popular soccer video game. Another very big name in the soccer video gaming arena is Pro Evolution Soccer. The game is owned by Konami and its series includes many installations dating back to 2001.
The latest installation in the series is Pro Evolution Soccer 2010. This game is available on Sony’s PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Portable; Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Windows; Nintendo’s Wii. Now Konami has announced that they will be making Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 available for Apple’s device as well – a great piece of news for all soccer loving iPod Touch / iPhone / iPad owners.
Even more wonderful news is that the version that will be introduced to the App Store will be unique i.e. it will not be the console version ported to the iPhone. Konami wanted to the App Store game to be unique in its own right. Quality wise, Konami is targeting the visuals of the PSP version. In their own words
“Firstly because we thought graphics on the PSP looked fabulous, secondly because of the iPhone’s processing speed and display capacities being potentially comparable to those of a “small” PSP.”
