EA's European VP has admitted that the company had fallen behind in comparison to Konami when it came to football games.
However, Jens Uwe Intat is now able to point to solid scores to suggest that FIFA is a greater footy experience than PES. Now, let's all row about it.
"Over the last couple of years, FIFA has been an excellent performer and we continue to grow market share over Konami," Intat told MCV.
"It also shows that our products do get better - FIFA's Metacritic scores keep going up. We have a clearly superior product over Konami, which we did not have in the last generation."
EA Sports revealed FIFA 11's Creation Centre yesterday, adding to the game's already bulging feature set.
Look for our review next week.
