From the publisher: Critically acclaimed, multi-million selling and still the most respected football title on the planet, Winning Eleven continues to be one of Konami's flagship titles. The indications are that this latest incarnation will surpass everything that went before it and prove that Winning Eleven 2008 will be the greatest version of the beautiful game to date.

Winning Eleven 2008 features a brand new intelligence system, called Teamvision, that adapts and reacts to players own gameplay styles to ensure that the computer controlled opponents are always challenging and forcing the player to think and chance their style of play to avoid being out-thought by the game. It will learn counter attacks that target your weaknesses and look to exploit any repetitive tactics players use.

Defenders react better to danger, closing down the ball and charging at shots and the goalkeepers will hold shots that are closer to them as well. Teammates will make more intelligent runs into space and the close control has been sharpened to ensure quick and fluid passing and speedy attacks can be built. The next gen versions also feature extensive edit modes so players can completely customise their Winning Eleven 2008 experience.


Konami's highly anticipated Winning Eleven 2008 is shipping today as Japanese release version for PlayStation3™ (region free) and Xbox360™ (NTSC/J only). The game features an English/Japanese language option (text + voices). Expected to be in stock tomorrow is the PlayStation2™ and Asia version PS3™/Xbox360™ editions.
