Konami Digital Entertainment revealed it has started shipping Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 to retailers in North America for the Xbox 360, PS3, PSP and PC.
.. Konami dares to release this product for full-price. It's so disappointing. Dont waste your money. Pick up PES5 from a budgetbin instead and hope that Konami releases a decent next-gen PES next fall/winter.
still it's 10x better than fifa.
it's better than fifa this time around. they completely missed their next gen entry. seabass tsukasa also said that he was not satisfied with the final product.fifa went through some rough years on 360 too to become what it is now.i own both and must say that on ps3,the better game is fifa. hope they get pro evo right next time,because i am a hardcore fan of this franchise.
5 months after the European release!?!!? What the hell Konami?!!?!? They better have fixed the slowdown problems on the PS3, and at least updated it in some other ways too. 5 frigging months!! Unbelievable. There is just no reason to delay games like that. I am looking at you too Hot Shots Golf. PES 2008, while still deserving of some of the criticism it got, is still the king by a long shot. FIFA is no where near this game. Can't wait to pick up PES at Gamestop today.
Late release, but in america soccer is minority. In europe is number one sport in every country.
...they needed that extra time to include horrible worthless dubbing and crappy music... ;)
this game blows, fifa 08 is so better than this
FIFA is complete junk. Sorry to say. Pro Evolution Soccer was, is, and always will be the king of soccer games.
... far from it, actually... ...but at least Fifa seems to be IMPROVING every year, while Pro Evo is getting worse and worse, and it seems they're hardly even trying anymore. So yeah, Fifa isnt worth full price either, but sadly, so isnt PES anymore, and that's a sad conclusion to make.
I want this game, because I dont support EA and will not be buy fifa (its been the same game for eons now). So I will see what PES is all about.
5 months after the eu release, i dont want this besides i bought fifa08 and i can say its pretty decent ive also read many reviews that say pes08 doesnt look next-gen
Fifa 08 is wayyyy better than this game. I am not saying Fifa is perfect, but it kills this game in visuals and gampeplay.
For me it is simple. Fifa perhaps looks like soccer but PES FEELS like soccer (also the animations of PES2008 are SPOT ON). PES2008 has it faults (online lag being the biggest) but it is still a remarkable game. I play it (offline) and have great fun and excitement. I prefer it over any previous installement of either PES or Fifa.
Anyone know if they've fixed the online lag? I know they've realeased a patch that didn't really work, but they've had months now with the euro and japan versions to fix this. I'd usually buy pes on day one, but I play about 90% of my sports games online, so lag would be a dealbreaker.
