So, you think you’re good at Pro Evo?

Konami announces a British tournament to pick the real Pros

With Pro Evolution Soccer 2 due out in November, Konami is showing off the game in the best possible way: by getting you to play it. Having joined forces with GAME and Dennis Publishing, Konami is on a quest to find Britain's greatest PES2 player and give him a stadium-load of dosh. Beginning this September 30th, 50 GAME stores up and down the land from Glasgow to Plymouth will showcase a special exclusive early demo of the game (which was 80% complete at ECTS) and register the scores of players via a form available in-store. Anyone pre-ordering PES2 from GAME for £1.99 (redeemable against the full price, which is still TBC), will also receive a copy of the demo to take away with them. The highest scores registered during a fortnight's play will see players notified, and the best 128 will go forward to regional finals to be held in GAME's Blackburn, Nottingham, Bristol and Oxford Street branches between October 28th and 31st. Regional finalists are guaranteed a goodie bag containing a copy of C&VG, and a selection of UMBRO merchandise, presumably T-shirts and the like. The grand final will be held in November, and the ultimate winner is set to receive £1,000... worth of GAME vouchers, and UMBRO gear including new Xai football boots and training wear. Not to mention a copy of every game that Konami release during the year, and a trophy to lord over all their friends. Runners-up will walk away with UMBRO gear. We'll be entering, so watch your backs. [Ah, you're all talk -Ed] Related Feature - Winning Eleven 6 hands-on preview
