Electronic Arts has confirmed that FIFA 10 will ship internationally on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PC, PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS, PSP and mobile on October 2, 2009.

Three new innovations have been developed to change the player control experience in FIFA 10. The first-ever true 360° dribbling system gives players finer control of the ball, enabling them to find spaces between defenders that previously were not possible. Using an all-new animation technology, skilled dribblers now have the ability to face the defender and use highly responsive lateral dribbling to skip past him. An innovative concept called Freedom in Physical Play enables players to perform wider dribble touches and new collision sharing creates a varied, less predictable, and extended fight for possession between the dribbler and a defender.

On the pitch, critical gameplay fundamentals have been enhanced, providing more sophisticated ball control, and physical interaction between players. In addition, players now move, behave and position themselves more realistically. On attack, players analyze space more effectively, curve their runs in an attempt to stay onside, create passing lanes naturally, and drive for more variety in attacking options. On defense, new concepts like position priority enable defenders to multi-task so dangerous spaces left open by teammates out of position are covered. Plus, slide tackle targeting, press marking, and better-urgency clearance logic provide new options that make defending a tactical skill in FIFA 10. In goal, a myriad of improvements and refinements to goalkeeper intelligence result in a more responsive and powerful rushing system and ultra-realistic saves.

FIFA 10 also features a deeper iteration of Manager Mode with more than 50 major improvements, including new match realism, realistic player transfers based on multiple decision points, and true-to-life player growth curves.

New game modes, and innovations to popular features like Be A Pro, will be revealed in the upcoming months.

Really looking forward to this, the only thing that did my head in about this was some unrealisms in the manager modes, but all in all best game on the planet.

/rubs hands
Yes I can't wait to kick butt on this again - the manager mode realism is an excellent shout I'm glad that one of the few faults in the game is being addressed. Just awaiting Madden 10 and for EA to release NCAA games on pal/region free!
Looking forward to this! I used to be a big fan of pro evo but scince pro evo 6 ive cracked on with fifa and havent looked back.

It will be interesting to see what happens to the ultimate team in 09. Will your side be transfered over to 10 or will it start again etc.
I hope the PC version is going to be up to scratch. 09 on the PC played nothing like it did on the 360
