Pro Evolution 360 may allow 22 players online
Looks like Pro Eveolution Soccer for the Xbox 360 may allow your whole team to be comprised of acutal people, making 22-player games (11 to a team) a reality. Then you wouldn't have to worry about joing a soccer (aka "footy") team in real life, getting all sweaty and fit and all that. Just meet your virtual 'mates for some online play and you're good to go.
The latest Famitsu has revealed that Shingo "Seabass" Takatsuka, big Konami guy, hopes to bring 22-player online play to PES 360. Whether this will be a feature of installment 1 or not remains to be seen, but it looks possible on the next gen platforms.
