Microsoft have today announced an agreement with both Konami and EA Sports that means both Pro Evolution Soccer 6 and FIFA 07 will be exclusive to Xbox 360 (on next-gen platforms at least).
I have to get a 360 now! This is bad news for Sony, especially in Europe where football games sell BIG.
lol micosoft is at it this time..wait and see
This is seriously strange as the PES and Fifa followings in Europe are absolutely MASSIVE!! This is certainly a blow for Sony, but then again PS3 is backwards compatible so not to worry in the end as you can always get the PS2 version.
it`s pro evo,graphics don`t matter,i`m even still rocking the psone version lol!so no big probs ,ps2 still has it.
Don't try and act like this isn't a major blow to sony. I was anticipating PES on the PS3 for a while now. hoping to see at least some sort of screenshot. But now i have to buy a 360 (and i will) to get my fix. Microsoft was VERY smart to get these exclusives. Football games are major in Europe, they are what sells the system. (These games got me my PS2) Im p*ssed at sony now...
Pro evolution 6 was the only reason i had a PS2.
sorry im ment to say pro evo 1
I will get me a PS3 either way because of games like Motorstorm and MGS4, but this is really bad news for PS3 fans , and good news for Xbox 360 fans I guess. I don't think most Americans realize just how big a sport Football is. American Football is a really small sport compared to Football and many people in Europe buys game consoles for the sole reason to play FIFA Football games or the Pro Evolution Soccer series. MS must have paid a big load of money for this deal.
it was all good until u came in
There you go. This is what I meant every time by saying MS got the cards in their hands. As well as industrywise as well as moneywise. For real Sony can't cope with this massive power. Bill wins always
i love Fifa (I know most people hate it) but I think its an awesome game and i cant wait to get it on my 360 I wonder why they waited so long to announce it on 360, maybe they were still sorting out wherether or not to sell it on the PS3
it specifically said that "Pro Evolution Soccer 6" & Fifa 07 right? sorry to burst all of the xbox fan bubble of joy... but Winning Eleven isnt part of that deal.. n to my knowledge Konami can release the Winning Eleven International series for the PS3.. remember no region lock on PS3??... Konami wouldnt be so stupid to make it unavailable for the PS3.. the latest version of the console that make the title big.. with such big followers.. i think they'll release Winning Eleven International for the PS3.. as for Fifa 07.. tough luck.. but i dont play Fifa :P .. i feel sorry for those who want them on PS3 though.. PS: Winning Eleven series is always the better one.. and it is big here in Asia.. more followers than the PES series..
winning eleven IS pro evo, its just called winning eleven in asia and its called pro evo in europe so no winning eleven wont be coming to the ps3 because winning eleven IS pro evo your comment goes to show how much you DONT know about gaming
i know its basically the same game with different iteration... its u that dont know anything on the business side and licensing... there are a lot of fine prints involved.. and if the agreement states that its the PES that is the exclusive.. then it is the PES that will be exclusive.. not WE or WE:I, just the PES.. meaning that the series will be exclusive for the European territory only.. before u label people idiot make sure u understand 1st.. see whos the bigger ignorant idiot now... to add more to that.. MS lies to u about the 12 months exclusive deal too.. hahahah... even the series creator says that it will be only until the end of the year... heheheh... pwned big time...
Pro Evo is winning eleven is it not!
This is great news, I play against my mates on Xbox Live pretty much every day. Pro Evo was the only question mark we had regarding Sony's overpriced console. This has answered our questions nicely, see you all on Live guys. :)
that will be good but i dont want chinease writings and i cant pick my teams. microsoft u noobs i wanted pes on my ps3 not fair, i hope they release winning eleven on ps3 so i can import that and fifa is rubbbishh.
they aren't gona release winning eleven on the PS3 either i think youll find
winning eleven is just the beta version!!! the japs always get to test out the new game mechanics,then when konami tighten up the physics and the easy score routes, they release the BETTER version PRO EVO!!!!! Konami have always done it this way since the switch from n64 to the ps1!!!!!!! since when have you EVER heard sony losin exclusives left, right and center!?!?!?! TRUST ME, sony's in DEEP TROUBLE!!!!! hehehe
Winning Eleven and Pro Evo are the same game!!
may be that winning eleven thing might be true given the fact that the 360 struggles in japan.let`s import that sh*t worldwide baby!! big up microsoft on this..the war is on..
NO GAYBOY, DON`T JUMP IN NOW!!! JUST THE OTHER DAY, YOU WERE BASHING THE 360, NOW YOU WANT TO TAKE THE GREEN PILL?
OH... MY... GOD.... Because of this, the 360 is gonna DESTROY the PS£ in England. This is no joke!!! Props to MS for this incredibly smart move. Completely unexpected!!
I completely agree Pro evo and FIFA are the biggest system sellers in europe well definetly in england anyways.
Its the same game but differnt names for godsake, there are no beta versions or any of that crap. if you look at previous versions you see that its always been called wining eleven 8,9,10 etc in japan and its called pro evolution soccer 2,3,4,5 and now 6 in eroupe and elsewhere.
you must be a SH*T pro evo player, if you cant tell the differences between winning eleven/pro evo!!!!! any decent european/jap gamer will tell you that, STANDARD!!!! they may look similar, but TRUST ME the jap version is always EASIER, and the game mechanics are totally different!!!! I've been playing all versions of konami football games since day DOT!!!!!
Wheres the Link Please. PS. I assure you im anything but a SH*T pro evo player Iv been playing this game since its SNES days.
is gta 4 exclusive for xbox 360
But its coming out the same day as the PS3 version. Its no longer a timed exclusive. The 360 version will have some exclusive content or something like that, but GTA 4 is NOT exclusive to the 360.
actually Winning Eleven is not the beta game.. it is the Original Version... then it is converted as Pro Evolution Soccer... that is why Winning Eleven will always be 1st on the shelf in Asia.. then it is released in Europe as the Pro Evolution version.. it is actually ALMOST identical.. but the two titles are indeed difference.. so 2 completely different version.. and microsoft totally hyped it up.. so it seems that PS3 wouldnt get it.. the fact of the matter is Xbos never get the WE version.. and yet the PS usually have both.. in this case 1-1 so both are even..
winning eleven is reknowned for being too EASY!!! Altough it's STILL SIK, we don't play pus*y football in the uk!!! Tha's why I regard winning eleven as the beta version, cos when konami receives all the feeback from it, they then tighten up the gameplay, then release the PROPER SH*T in pro evo!!! shogun
to all of u guys that say its the same.. its almost true.. but remember last year... 3 version of that games comes out... PES 5, WE 10, and WE 10 International... PES 5 full english version, WE 10 japanese version, WE 10 International translated japanese version... all im saying is its a smart move from konami.. by making PES as an exclusive for the 360 and get paid.. and later release the Winning Eleven version and make more money.. does it make sense to ya??
12 months or more is still a long time to wait.
