FIFA 08 released
FIFA 08 (named FIFA Soccer 08 in North America) is the next to latest installment of EA Sports' series of football video games.
Developed by EA Canada, it is published by Electronic Arts worldwide under the EA Sports label. It was released on all popular gaming formats in September 2007 in Europe and Australasia, and in October 2007 in North America. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game feature an improved game engine with superior graphics and different commentators and are dubbed "next-generation" by EA. On all other platforms - including the PC - the game utilizes an older engine. The Nintendo DS version features fewer teams, stadiums, game modes and kits due to the limitations of the machine's storage medium. Commentary comes from Sky Sports' Martin Tyler and Andy Gray on next generation consoles; however, ITV Sports' Clive Tyldesley partners Gray on current generation consoles, and the PC version of the game. On the DS version of the game, Tyldesley is by himself.
The tagline for the game is "Can You FIFA 08?." The theme song is "Sketches (20 Something Life)" by La Rocca, from the album The Truth. The game was considered ahead of it's competitor, Pro Evolution Soccer 08.
