Relive the passion and competition of the greatest sport on earth in true retro style with Fitba the superb debut release from Dundee-based independent video game developer Triple B games. Available for the low price of 400 Microsoft points (approx.£3.40) via the Xbox Live community games store, the game is easy to get into, incredibly addictive and boasts a superb multiplayer mode for you and your mates to duke it out for glory on the pitch.

You can then take your dream team online to compete against other gamers via Xbox Live and make your name known to the masses.

About Triple B Games

Triple B Games was set up in 2007 in Dundee by industry veteran Jonathan“Fritz” Ackerley (Harry Potter’s Quidditch World Cup, Shadowman, F1 2002, Actua Soccer 2).

The company's aim is to show that great games can be delivered without any of the traditional‘AAA’ baggage of vast teams&overblown production values. Taking a punk approach to games, developing fast and using free tools wherever possible, Triple B have now launched Fitba on the Xbox 360 Community Games channel. A response to the bland, formulaic approach of current football games Fitba is real football, football with soul, a kick about with your mates rather than the vapid commercialism of the Champions League.
