i might give this a go this year, like the sound of the multi-year career and being able to change rules
the first game was supposedly good but bug riddled, so hoping these are ironed out this year

A lot of time and effort was put into career mode this time around. We set up the foundation last time, but this time it was a top priority. Do at least check it out, maybe rent it. It doesn't look like it in the screenshots but it is a real step up.

Yes.
Sounds encouraging. I'm sure you can't reveal specific information, but hopefully the player duplication is gone from that mode.
Do you know if it will be a day one title on the PSN North American store?

We've got two new screens up, showing the newly unveiled All Blacks strip:

It's region-free and available in a number of territories. Perhaps check that list of resellers I linked to, and see who will ship to you for the least.

I think the same would go for you. I'm not sure it if will be distributed in North America this time or not.

For anyone here in the US wanting to import, I've always had a good experience with zavvi.com in the UK. I've been pre-ordering PES from them for the past several years and have usually got my copy about a week or so after the UK release date.

I managed to pre-order from Ebay. A bit more expensive but the guy guarantees day 1 shipping.
