PES 2014 skipping PS4, Xbox One, Vita and 3DS

PES 2014 was announced just minutes ago but the publisher’s European PES community manager Adam Bhatti has already taken to Twitter to confirm that the game will definitely be Xbox 360, PS3 and PSP only this year.
“[We’re] not in the business for high-res next-gen ports. We can't and shouldn't do that. Bad habit etc,” he stated. “So the fact we're not on PS4/Xbone with PES 2014 is simple. We can't and shouldn't be just using higher quality textures etc should be new.

no word on a wii u edition but if they were smart and wanted to build a following now is their time to hit the wii u. ea skipping it, they would have no competition.

Common sense! My bet is, they don't cash in

yugovega1634d ago

sadly you are probably right

sknygy1634d ago

...and yet I got a disagree! PMSL @ N4G

Funny, I would have bought it for PS4 but I'm not planning on buying it for PS3 since my brother will get my PS3 once the PS4 is out.
It's sad but they have good reasons so I can't blame them.

I hope so to as I wanted to get a football game on my Wiiu and with fifa not being on it was going to give pes a go.

DeadlyFire1634d ago

likely they will wait until next year for WiiU, PS4, Xbone versions.

Such a shame, high-res can sometimes deliver a better/immersive experience IMO.

Truth be told I was hoping to be playing it on next-gen consoles, more so than the current ones.

pompombrum1634d ago

Clearly you wasn't around for the first three pes releases on the 360. This is a GOOD thing that they're not releasing next gen ports, trust me on that.

Salooh1634d ago

Where the hell is the revelation ?!! Another victim of the greed. Waste years to release it on current generation while they have the kit to developer for the next generation. Annoying like hell !!

Not really. Fifa 06 & 07 for original Xbox are arguably my favorite Fifa games ever.

They released Fifa 07 also for the Xbox 360 that year and it was probably the worst soccer game I've ever played.

it had better graphics by far....but the gameplay was crap.

Gameplay always wins and when 2 games have similar good gameplay, the tie breaker is usually the Better graphics.

PES already giving up? Sure looks like it

PANTHER10301634d ago

Sure, what's happening with Konami? Not next gen or Vita versions. I dont wanna to buy many games for this gen at exception of Last of Us, GT6, Beyond and maybe The last Guardian. Maybe for PS4 I could buy FIFA 14, because PES is only for this old gen, disapointing the Konami's policy :(

MajorLazer1634d ago

Disagree all you like but it seems to be the case.

ZodTheRipper1633d ago

They clearly said that they don't have the budget to develop for so many consoles simultaneously. I had hoped for a next-gen release since I can't play FIFA anymore after I got used to PES but their reasons are understandable.

3-4-51633d ago

They are doing what EA should.

They are working on Next Gen PES games...for PES 2015

They are taking a year break to develop something worth playing on next gen and trying not to make the mistake Fifa 07 made.

ceballos77mx1634d ago

PSP? They still do games for it?.

PANTHER10301634d ago

It a portable device more powerful than 3DS and that sold 100 millions of units.

PANTHER10301634d ago (Edited 1634d ago )

Oh boy. No PS4 or Vita version :(
FIFA 14 then.

RedHawkX1634d ago

yeah they pretty much giving up ground to EA with this move.
