This Is Football 2002 – Press Pack

Posted in Playstation 2 on June 15, 2014 by drewturpin

This is the press pack for the Playstation 2 version of “This Is Football 2002”, which was released in 2001.

Included is a “Press Information (September 2001)” compact disc with the Playstation 1 PAL logo on it. Interestingly though this disc isn’t recognised as a valid disc by either the Playstation 1 or Playstation 2 hardware. Examining the contents through a PC shows that this disc just contains a number of images of the Playstation 2, Sony’s “Multitap” peripheral and promotional images of the game (but no actual game screen shoots).

The other disc is the actual game disc (not a promo disc) and is identical to the one you would get with the original release. Although the game itself was decent enough it couldn’t really compete with either the FIFA or PES franchises. Ultimate this franchise had to admit defeat and the last instalment of the game was “This Is Football 2005”, which was also release on the Playstation 2.

I picked this up from ebay a few years ago for under £5, which is a price I am more than happy with. However I am not sure what it is actually worth as I have not seen another one of these since.
