For those who wanted to be as close to the football stars as they can, this is an unbelievable opportunity.
Moving from being a mere spectator on a couch to actually playing in the field, it will be as close to David Beckham or Ronaldo as you will ever get.
Better than winning a ticket to watch the match live, Electronic Arts gives fans a little bit extra in its only officially licensed video that is now available in India. Promising to get users to come very close to the World Cup without playing it, the video game has developed enhanced game play attributes and stunning graphics that bring to life close to 100 super stars and captures all of the spirit and pageantry of the real-world tournament.
"Renewing our strategic partnership with FIFA will enable us to continue to deliver the most authentic football titles to fans who have helped to make our FIFA games the most successful football video game franchise in the world,'' said Electronic Arts' Gerhard Florin, Executive Vice-President and General Manager for International Publishing.
As real as it can get in 2006 FIFA World Cup, users step into the heart of the match as they play their favourite team or the ones they hate the most.
The game features great representations of the stars and players get the feel of 12 official stadiums as they take their team from the first few rounds to the final goal that wins the grand prize.
In India, the 2006 FIFA World Cup computer game will be available at all the leading stores. Going beyond just this World Cup, Electronic Arts has extended its partnership with FIFA for soccer action games across different formats -- mobile phones, online formats and the console platforms. -- Mandira Nayar
