Will FIFA Street Convert PES Gamers?

With the March release of FIFA Street EA are hoping to finally convert those lingering Konami fans from the Pro Evolution Soccer fanbase.

FIFA Street creative director Gary Paterson told MCV, “We’re hopeful that we can use Street as a way to introduce people that love football video games into the EA Sports family,”

“We’re hopeful that maybe the last remaining hardcore PES group of players will be interested in FIFA Street.

“Also, maybe some other players see FIFA as being a bit intimidating for them, and we’re hopeful these are looking for a more casual experience. It’s a way for people to have their first experience in the world of football gaming and maybe in the future they can go on to be FIFA gamers.”

The game hits stores on March 16th along with an all new ‘Street Network’ desgned to encourage social competitions amongst friends online.

EA are shooting for the moon somewhat if they hope that FIFA Street will drag PES fans from the next Konami installment.
