PES 2008 dated

"Greatest of all time".

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 will launch for PS3, Xbox 360, PC, PS2 and mobile on 26th October.

PSP and DS versions will follow in November. A Wii version is also planned.

Konami made the announcement this afternoon, with president Kunio Neo saying he reckons it's "the greatest football game of all time".

"Demand is massive for what is easily the best Pro Evolution Soccer title to date, and we anticipate record sales as we bring the series to PlayStation 3 for the first time, and unleash stunning versions for all leading formats."

PES 2008's key features include an adaptive AI system (Teamvision), and the usual array of refinements to graphics and gameplay, as well as a proper Edit mode (something 360 owners got short-changed on last time).

PES' traditional rival, FIFA, launches for PS3, 360, Wii, PC, PS2, PSP and DS on 28th September.
