Sometimes, it might be easy to get a little upset by the games-buying mainstream. Seemingly so happy to be led by the nose, snapping up anything advertised alongside Coronation Street, an endless stream of meritless nonsense hits the number one slot in the UK.
However, good news today sees Konami?s Pro Evolution Soccer 4 for PlayStation enter the UK charts all-formats at number one, great news for everyone, even your mum.
And Konami UK has the added bonus of dethroning the astoundingly inferior FIFA 2005 from the top, all good. In other top of the charts news, Fable slips to number four while Tony Hawk?s Underground 2 nestles into number three.
All that and we didn?t make any jokes about the number two slot. Perhaps we?re losing our touch.
In other news, SPOnG is playing in the Pro Evo 4 Media Cup tonight, to be held at the ground of a recently-humiliated Premiership football club. Hopefully this year, we?ll make it past the initial knock-out stages given the massive dedication we have shown the series of late.
And in yet more news, SPOnG expects to have the world?s first online full-power hands-on preview of the Xbox version of Pro Evo 4 in the coming week or so. Keep it locked, etc?
