Konami Scores with Pro Evolution Soccer 6

Three million units shipped as Pro Evolution
Soccer 6 continues its phenomenal year-on-year growth

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH is celebrating
the phenomenal pan-European success of the recently-released Pro Evolution
Soccer 6 for PlayStation 2, Xbox 360 and PC-DVD, with over three million units
shipped on its launch weekend.

Released on October 26th, three million copies of
the game were shipped across Europe to meet demand. Initial sell-through of the
eagerly-awaited title was excellent, as hundreds of thousands of new users spent
the last weekend familiarizing themselves with the new moves and techniques PES6
offers in abundance.

Such high sales also saw Pro Evolution Soccer 6
secure the Number One slot in a number of territories, and also enjoyed a
significant sell-through increase over last year’s game. The debut of the series
on Xbox 360 has been well received, too, with the first next-generation version
of Pro Evolution Soccer performing incredibly well, while demand for both the
PlayStation 2 and PC-DVD versions has also grown.

“We are delighted that, once again, Pro Evolution
Soccer continues to be so well accepted,” commented Kunio Neo, President of
Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. “In an industry known for its constant
changes, Pro Evolution Soccer is one of the few brands to increase sales year on
year. Globally, it is now the best-selling product within Konami Digital
Entertainment and we are extremely proud to be contributing such tremendous
figures towards the ongoing success of Konami. Now we look to the PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable)
version continuing the success in December, and the Nintendo DS version in
