Can this game run via Bootcamp on my Mac mini 2Ghz 2Mb-RAM?

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008
MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:
Windows XP
Intel Pentium IV 1.4GHz or equivalent processor
512 MB RAM
4.0GB free hard disk space
4x DVD-ROM Drive
DirectX 9.0c compatible video card. 64MB Pixel Shader 1.1 (NVIDIA GeForce 3 or ATI Radeon 8500 video card)
DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card
DirectX 9.0c or higher (included on Disc)
Multiplayer: TCP/IP 192 kbps or higher
Windows compatible keyboard
640 x 480 monitor resolution

(I heard that some Sony VAIO with integrated graphic card ran this game, I'm wondering if my mini can do it)

Most likely not....

Sorry to say that the game requires a high end graphics card and the gma is a really low end you can however see if there is a demo and try the demo first.

Far be it for me to talk down about someone but, you may want to take crackmancrackman's advice with a grain of salt. He/She has been known to give advice that is way out in left field.

I am not far off on this. like i said try a demo it really is a trial and error. some games work using bootcamp and others don't.

yes, I heard some rumors about a new mac mini with the same graphic card as the macbook. How do you think people? Will this be soon?

Yes sooner then you think.

The reason i say this is mac os x snow leopard 10.6 uses open cl not open gl which means they will have to upgrade the graphics card to be able to handle the graphics requirement for snow leopard all though it will run on the gma chipset there may be a reduced performance not to much right now is known about open cl.
