FIFA 10 has been widely regarded as one of best football games of all time

The boss of EA for Europe,  Jens Uwe Intat today claimed that FIFA 10 was the far superior football (soccer) game in Europe last year.

He claimed that FIFA “beat the heck out of Pro Evo”, saying that FIFA had taken 75% of all football game sales across Europe. Apparently it was “neck and neck with Modern Warfare 2  to be the best-selling game across Europe [in 2009]“.

While I’m sure as usual they have used some kind of manipulated data and figures to turn this to their advantage, it is quite clear that FIFA 10 was far more popular than PES 2010. Just from being around people who play games, the majority of people this time opted for FIFA (including me, previously a PES loyalist).

Definitely worrying news for Konami…
