Codemasters and Microsoft confirm Sensible World of Soccer for Xbox Live Arcade.

Become a goal-scoring superstar hero in Q1 2007 with matches over Xbox Live.

A dedicated Xbox Live Arcade edition of Sensible World of Soccer, the true sequel the classic lightening-fast football game of the 1990s, is now in development for Xbox 360, the next generation video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and will arrive in Q1 2007, Codemasters and Microsoft announced today at X06, Barcelona.

Based on the classic 1994 Amiga title, Sensible World of Soccer will capture the originals entire world of football, mixing management with super-fast match action and featuring teams and divisions from around the globe.

It is also confirmed that the Xbox Live Arcade edition will take the ultimate football kickabout online, enabling players to compete head-to-head in matches, friendlies, tournaments, and custom leagues over Xbox Live. The off-line game will further offer the classic twenty-season career mode, which gives gamers the opportunity to play as thousands of different teams.

Chris Lewis, regional vice president, Entertainment and Devices EMEA, Microsoft, comments:

Were delighted to welcome Codemasters on board for Xbox Live Arcade. To have such an iconic gaming experience as Sensible World of Soccer lined up as a future title is fantastic and will deliver the perfect match for Live gamers. Xbox 360 is already the home of next-generation football - with Sensible World of Soccer, Xbox 360 gamers will be able to enjoy the seminal console football game experience too.

Says Nick Pili, Codemasters director of Casual Gaming:

Sensible World of Soccer for Xbox 360 Live Arcade will enable fans of the original and a new generation of gamers to experience a beautiful game thats recognised as the classic Sensi title. Making use of Xbox Live for online multiplayer matches will take the SWOS experience to a whole new level of gameplay perfection.

The Xbox Live Arcade edition will also enable players to switch between visuals refined for Xbox 360, with a high-def display up to 720p, and the original games retro visuals. Sensible World of Soccer will be available for Xbox Live Arcade in Q1 2007.

From all three eyes, I imagine? I want to come over and play! I used to rock at SWOS. It was near impossible to be a manager only though. Players would depreciate by half their value in less than a season!

the only thing that's frustrating me apart from the lack of real names is that i can't remember how to make a substitution.

Do you not pause the game, choose your subs, then they come on next time the ball goes out?

I'm sure on the Amiga version you had to press the 's' button or the spacebar to make a substitution.

That does ring a bell! But I think it was only twice you had to tap.

We are currently investigating the issue and will have a correctly functioning version of Sensible World of Soccer available soon.

Any users that have already downloaded Sensible World of Soccer will need to delete their copy of the game and download it again when the correctly functioning version is available in order to enjoy online play via Xbox LIVE. Following this process does not incur any additional charges.

Please look out for the fully functional version of Sensible World of Soccer soon. We thank you for your patience.

YEEK :down:

Oh for fuck's sake. I was going to grab it when I got home, hope it's not another long wait for the working version to go up.
