Code may be the same, but theres no deniying that playing PES with the sixaxis/DualShock is far better than 360 pad.

There is a reason why the ps3 version of pes has recieved far more preorder's than any other version ;)

Well, most PES pros have played the game on PS2 controller and the new layout on 360 controller is not as good as it can be. At least, that's what GameSpy had to say in one preview.

I doubt your getting suxasses and rumble all in one on this, even so you'd have to go spend another 50.00 on that controller plus 65.00 on the game, is that a deal?? Hell no!!

This is the first Pro Evolution Soccer on PS3 - are you pleased with what you've achieved and how do you see the series evolving on PS3?

Seabass: Well I'm satisfied in that in the time frame we had, we were able to finish the code and release it on time, but that's only really within that time frame. When I look at the capacity of what the PS3 can do, I feel very strongly that there's loads of things that I wanted to do, but I couldn't do them in this version.

A rare sight. Someone quotes from the article and nobody disagrees....

they cant disagree, because is the truth, the developer said it himself. many more developer have said this before he is not the first person who said it.

Proxy4079d ago

I'm just laughing because half the time someone says something like "I don't like it." and then people disagree.

"Damn, I really though that I didn't like it, but then someone online, hundreds of miles away, disagreed with me. I guess I do like it then." [sarcasm]

i have the 360 demo and i should say that i am not impressed at all, it looks just like the one released a year before just a bit less jaggy. i understadn that ps3 needs about double the production time to make the gaes look identical but it is a crime to downgrade the 360 version bcause u wanted to ship the ps3 one quicker. it could of looked so much better. ( to all fanboys, i wasnt making a statement about power of the system just about development cycles and KONAMI obviosuly wanted the ps3 version to not be the inferior one as it is the case for nearly all multiplatform same day releases).

it plays well enough though still which is the most important point.

How do you know they down graded the XB version?

And as for double the time they took the same time.

If any thing he said the PS3 still had power to spare and they could have done alot more except for the time limit and that comes down to spitting out a yearly up date and the first PS3 version. Maybe the XB version is just about as good as its going to get.

I'm not attacking you, I just think you're off the mark here.

Seabass: I wish I could throw that x-box 360 away when I play the pes2008, but however we know that we couldn't disappointed x-box 360 owners cause we want to make money out of them. The reason that we know that x-box 360 have downgraded the ps3 version quite alot but oh well, the PS3 will be much more easier to code and be better when we release the Pes2009 next year, even though both of the version of the games work well on the PS3 and as well as the x-box 360 this year.

CVG: well thank you for your time, but before we leave do you want to give an extra words for either the x-box 360 or PS3 owners

Seabass: thank you, I almost forgot to give x-box 360 owners a word of advice, Beep You!

Just a Joke don't take it serious

Ahmadinejad4079d ago (Edited 4079d ago )

hehe, i serisouly dont understand why these developers have such a focus on making both games identical, they didnt use to before when it was ps2 and xbox or 64 and ps1, the more powerful develoepr friendly platform always got the better looking version and they didnt go out their way to make one of them look worse just to satisfy the other one. this is ridiculous. when u see gfx like PGR4 and bioshock and gears on 360 it is beyond me why they dont invest some time and effort and make a very realistic looking football game. this genre is cursed with sh*t gfx

Bathyj4079d ago

Gee you wont get hits on an article like that.

I know what he means by preference, personally I cant play a Tony Hawk game on XB because I play with my thumb on ollie but my index finger constantly bent and on grind. It too hard to do on XB so it really changes the whole game for such a simple thing. I couldn't imagine playing tekken and doing all of Kings multi stage moves on any thing other than a dual shock either.
