- We've previously covered the new version of Sensible Soccer, which updates the classic UK soccer franchise into 3D, but in a way that doesn't suck like Sensible Soccer 3D, huzzah!

Now, it looks like Sensible Soccer 2006 hasn't made it to U.S. retail (or at least, I can't find it in the Amazon or GameStop databases), so it's kinda cool that GameTap has stepped up, albeit by bundling the thing with more 'extreme' sports: "Turner Broadcasting’s GameTap gets vertical with the announcement of this week’s Xtreme Sports showcase. Building on its large action sports game catalog, GameTap has added PC versions of Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer, Mat Hoffman’s Pro BMX, Snowboard Park Tycoon, and Sensible Soccer 2006, as well as the Dreamcast version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater."

Of course, one could argue that Jon Hare and Tony Hawk have relatively little in common, but hey - it's a good way to get the title out there to the Yanks, and it's also noted: "GameTap is also announcing the addition of multiplayer capabilities to Soccer Brawl and Street Slam (aka Street Hoop), two of the network’s rare Neo Geo titles." More Neo Geo is good-o!
