Electronic Arts have admitted that there is an on-going rivalry between themselves and Konami when it comes to Football games. It is no real surprise, even so it's good to see developers with a bit of passion when it comes to creating new titles.
"I think that anyone that would underestimate the quality of a passionate game developer [like Konami] who really wants to make the best game in a battle like the one we have would be somewhat short-sighted," said David Rutter, producer of FIFA.
"We pay a great deal of attention to what those guys do because we want to make sure we're not caught up to by complacency. One of the brilliant things about this team here near Vancouver is that there's a lot of different nationalities on this team, we've all been imported pretty much into Canada because we're the best at what we do in the world," he said. "We're all mad football fans and gamers so I think those two things plus the fact that we're good and moved overseas makes us naturally competitive regardless of what the competition is; be it Konami or Call of Duty or watching TV, we want to be the thing that more people in the whole world want to do than anything else. I don't think you'll see that motivation drop because everyone here is super-competitive."
EA took the the honours last year, but maybe Konami can trounce FIFA with PES 2012 coming soon.
