"We're kind of damned if we do and damned if we don't." - WTF

This is ridiculous. I remember a time when devs realised it was up to them to help make a console popular but now it seems devs want a console to be popular before they support it.

what a stupid thinking from Konami!
So what they're saying is they're gonna be a year late in terms of performance with PES because no PES before 2014 on next gen? This is ridiculous!

I am not planning to buy the broken FIFA once again due to next gen EA prices and zero improvements and i was counting on a next gen PES coming out soon. Well guess what, Konami PES team just disappointed me once again.

You guys are all missing the point. Soccer is worldwide and more popular everywhere other than the US.

The rest of the world still is going to use this gen hardware for a while. It always takes them a bit longer to adapt to the new gen hardware.

This means you can keep putting out Soccer games on older hardware and having them sell really well.

This is actually a good thing. Look at the recent past console release sports games, watered down and just graphically superior crap. So waiting a year for a game to take advantage of hardware is good. Plus it looks like it's going to be a heck of a game on current gen with excellent visuals as well

"The fan base is with the current gen, and before moving on we want to make a good game with the new engine"

Seems more like they spent a lot of time developing it for current systems and didn't expect a new system to release so early

I don't think Konami have the funds to do both like EA does

Baka-akaB1585d ago

I doubt they dont have the funds . Thing is the ps4/xb1 versions would be the same with an higher resolution most likely , and they didnt felt like doing that , unlike say ... EA.

Especially when trying it to regain the favor of its public .
If they did that they'd lynched , despite imo a game that looks more gorgeous than what was shown of fifa 14 next gen so far .

Damned indeed ...

they did the same thing last time that's how the lost the crown to EA who were able to release 2 fifas on ps3 and 360 while PES was the ps2 and xbox ,they end up playing catch up this gen . look like konami don't have any attention on taking the crown back

jizzyjones1585d ago

Its a shame because next gen fifa has zero competition now, I would of probably got PES over fifa this too

mcstorm1585d ago

I still think they are missing a trick by not making a Wiiu version as there is no fifa this year on the console and there are so far 4 million customers that could pickup this game on the Wiiu. Im one of them as im not getting fifa on my xbox one this year.

I wish PES would get it together, they act like a B title so they get treated like one.
