I have never seen video game marketing that’s this aggressive in my entire life. It seems Microsoft will not settle for less than numero uno. It seems that 8 countries in Europe are getting a PES09 360 Pro bundle. It will only be for limited time but damn, the sales are gonna be explosive. Here’s the full release from Microsoft:
Xbox 360 nets the winner with PES 2009 Fans
Starting 24th October in Austria, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and United Kingdom Xbox 360 will exclusively bundle Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 with their Pro console. For a limited time and the estimated retail price of £189.99/€269.99, the bundle will include Konami’s PES 2009 popular video game in a custom box and the console with a 60GB hard-drive.
“We are thrilled to partner with Konami to give football fans the latest in high-definition gaming at a great price in time for Christmas,” said Chris Lewis, third-party marketing manager for Europe.
The Xbox 360 PES bundle is great value and is perfect for those who want the complete football gaming and entertainment experience.
