Pro Evolution Soccer 5 has been described as the most authentic and realistic football title for any format, and has been riding high in the Xbox charts since its release on October 21st. It is one out of more than 200 Xbox games that will play on the new Xbox 360 and will only serve to extend its appeal.

Pro Evolution Soccer 5 expands on the realism and total control that has become the bedrock of the popular series and has earned it a legion of fans. Fresh emphasis is placed on realism, with more physical battles between the players, more instinctive turning and passing, while shooting is considerably more realistic and is dependent on the player timing when they strike the ball while running. The new game also features the series' stunning Master League mode wherein players build and lead a team to victory, and Xbox® LiveTM compatibility with up to four players competing in real time.
"It is great news that Pro Evolution Soccer 5 - easily the best football game for any system - will be compatible with such an exciting new platform," commented Hans-Joachim Amann, Head of European Product Management for Konami of Europe. "Now Xbox 360 users can get to grips with its intuitive play until Pro Evolution Soccer will be released on Xbox 360 sometime later next year."
