Winning Eleven 9 on the PC

For those of you who care, Winning Eleven 9 (PES for the Europeans) is out on PC. It's been out on PS2 and other consoles for a while, but you can now play it on the PC. Which means you can take it with you on the road.

However, you can only buy it at for $29. Which is a change, but hell, they deliver fast enough.

Why bother? Because it is one of the best sports games on any system, period. And it blows FIFA 2006 away.

I've noticed that since I've started playing WE I've learned a lot more about how to watch a match. I can't say that about Madden or NBA Live.

And for fans of the series, Konami has increased their licenses, so you can play Chelsea and Arsenal. EA managed to buy licenses for every major league, so you have hundreds of teams you will never play WE9 cuts to the chase.

The thing about WE9/PES is that even for a person not fully familiar with the game, it is a wonderful learning experience.

Oh yeah, it was readers of the site which convinced me to play PES, whcih I ordered from England, not realzing it was Winning Eleven in the US
