Probably not. If its a true version of the game, he will be out with an Injury every time you get a chance to play his team 😛

The pictures on their website look pretty good.
hopefully they have fixed up the bugs and things from the last one.

But is it or will it be available for the PC?

It will first be released exclusively for the wii
but the company has said it being released on any either consoles depends on the success of the wii version.


But is it or will it be available for the PC?

no. Wii only. But on the forum their is something fom the developers saying that if it is a success on Wii it might be released on other consoles (PC, 360, PS3, etc)

Consoles, consoles, consoles, I am not a fan of consoles.

SOunds good.

I’ll be buying it for sure.

Hopefully it’s more user friendly than Fifa on the Wii… that is a shocker to play on the Wii (but awesome on the Xbox 360).
