Those of us in the U.S. call Konami's soccer series Winning Eleven
rather than Pro Evolution Soccer
. Winning Eleven
will soon be no more, however, as the title for the new U.S. game will officially be Pro Evolution Soccer 2008
, like its European counterpart.
As IGN points out, this is unfortunate timing. Had the newest game kept its Winning Eleven
name, it's title would have been Winning Eleven 11
. Only Japan will have that glory now.
We at Nintendo Wii Fanboy tend to prefer Winning Eleven
to Pro Evolution Soccer
, but at the end of the day, what's in a name? At least this change might serve to cut down on some confusion.
