Football the PlayStation way.

May 20, 2008 | In Defcon | Comments Off

So its the big game tomorrow night, where English football comes to face to face on a Moscow battlefield. The fans have been given special visa allowances as long as they have tickets to the game, warnings have been spread about being drunk in and around the match, and the media hype machine is has already been adding fuel to the already volatile fire.

Tomorrow night the two best teams in England (allegedly), Chelsea and Manchester United fight it out to be crowned Champions of Europe and quite frankly I couldn’t give a toss about it. :) Football just ain’t my thing but it has been a massive part of the PlayStation 1’s history. From Fifa Soccer 96, through to ISS, and on to Actua Soccer, and the various football management games, the PlayStation 1 has always had a football game somewhere in its top 10 chart. There are countless country variants with different European managers fronting various brands. Seriously the football list goes on and on, and maybe the Stat Machine that is AtariBuff might even be able to provide us with a comprehensive list of football games on the forum.

But from me, a little something to celebrate this triumphant night for English football. First some posters for you….

And now on to something really special.
