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.
only in japan it would make sense!!! the us are more american football/basketball fans!!! in europe, most ps fans only know about pro evo, as winning eleven needs to be patched due to jap text, wich is LONG to most noob ps players!!!! euro xboxers only know about PRO EVO standard!!!! for ps3 not to have PRO EVO, but 360 has, is a BIG WTF!?!?! very good for konami and ms, very bad for sony!!!
last year.. WE 10 come 1st then PES 5 then WE 10 international.. guess which one is the best version?? none.. they all play identically... ive played all 3 version so i know...
is fully english... the text and the commentary all are in english... and i dont think u have to wait a year for WE to be release on PS3.. we already knows that whatever happen the PS3 will sold out in Japan.. and guess what.. Konami isnt gonna pass a chance to make money... so they'll release WE for the PS3.. its capitalism at its best.. think about it...
lol i bet ps2 will have the highest sales on this asusual.mack my word .i wasn`t impress with the next gen screens ,konami needs to step up their game
NO GAYBOT!!! BEAT IT! STOP TRYING TO TURN PEOPLE TO UR BULLSH1T @SS PS2 CUZ UR POS3 ISN`T GETTING THIS GAME!!! RUNWAY FASSY!!
heres the link, like I previously stated, to a noob pro evo player, the differences would pehaps be unnoticable, but to ME, a real OG pro evo boy........EASY hehehe http://18.104.22.168/search...
dude.. if u play it ull know its the same... no differences in both version... get real man.. unless of course if u played it at 1 star level and start scoring from every angle.. thats what the difficulty bar is for.. i admit many of the bugs is fixed when PES is release.. but still its the same thing.. try playing WE 10 International at the highest level if u dont believe me...
kingboy - 5 Minutes ago lol i bet ps2 will have the highest sales on this asusual.mack my word .i wasn`t impress with the next gen screens ,konami needs to step up their game wether your impressed or not, TRUST ME the 360 will see a MILLIONS of sales from this announcement ALONE in europe!!!!! PRO EVO is the equivelant of maddens/ncaa,and nba combined!!!!!! and FIFA sells even MORE!!!!!!!! REALLY BAD NEWS FOR SONY!!!!!!!
Winning Eleven VS PES "Both Winning Eleven and Pro Evolution Soccer are made by Konami Tokyo. Winning Eleven is the original Japanese version of Pro Evolution Soccer. Every year, the new version of the game is released first as Winning Eleven in Japan, and after a few months a slightly modified version is released worldwide, in two different packages: Pro Evolution Soccer for Europe, and Winning Eleven International for the rest of the world. Additionally, in some countries a localized version is released, featuring local leagues and teams, instead of European ones. The differences between the two, each year, are minimal. The gameplay is more or less the same although there are few tweaks to the later released Pro Evolution. The only things that differ are the language, some updated licenced kits, and a few player transfers. Other than that, youd be hard pressed to find many differences between Winning Eleven and Pro Evolution Soccer." its from u.. so read it carefully...
The gameplay is more or less the same ALTHOUGH THERE ARE A FEW TWEAKS to the later released Pro Evolution. you must have missed it bro!!!!! u read it carefully!!!!!! JOG ON
hoho.. they are gonna make so much money.. PES for X360 and WE for the PS3... n the gamers will get to enjoy PES/WE no matter which platform they choose... viva Konami...
read it carefully too.. they didnt say anything about too easy or too hard.. "gameplay tweaks" in general.. and u assume it was the difficulty.. both the WE n PES series got the additional extra difficulty as unlockable...
yea i know ,it`s bad news for sony,but hey!it` just gettin started ..wait and see!
bounce gayboy!!! Runway fassyhole!!!
Seriously, no excuses, this is a huge disadvantage, Winning Eleven or not. That game cannot possibly make up for BOTH of these soccer games. Stop making excuses and admit that Sony messed up, huge.
i aint arguin over WE/PE they're both SIK!!!! but if ur a sony fan in europe, getting used to buying WE over here's gonna seem MIGHTY STRANGE!!!! for sony to have once owned PE left,right and center, to then losing its exclusivety is very SHOCKING INDEED!!!!! it's like ms saying "we've signed up MGS5 as an exclusive!!"
I'm not too big a fan of soccer games, so my opinion is a bit baised as to how upset I'm going to get. But doesn't the article specifically state that it's PES6 and Fifa '07? Which release in September? So, essentially, for this year, there will no be a version on the PS3, but next year, there probably will. And there's a PS2, and probably a PSP version coming. How is that "exclusive?"

EASY its next-gen exclusive!!!! (360) If you've seen the difference between FIGHT NIGHT 3 on ps2/360........NUFF SAID! JUMP IN!!!
What I was trying to imply is that they haven't by any means locked up the release of those games for any significant amount of time, which is what "exclusive" typically implies; that you can't get it anywhere else. I'm not denying that the 360 version will be the best one released this year, but rather, pointing out that PES7 and Fifa '08 will probably be on the system. That's all. If not having those two franchises for its first eleven months kills the ps3, then I'll stand corrected.
but IT will DENT the growth of the ps3 to a degree!! If your like me, a football gamer, YOU NEED PES/WE- STANDARD!!!! This news alone, will cause a hell of a lot more sales for 360 at crimbo, just due to the fact that ITS PRO EVO!!!!!! pro evo wont be available on ps3 till wot, late 07/ early 08!?!?!?! THATS THE KILLER!!!!!
Wow this is a huge hit to sony. Only thing worse to sony is if MGS got canceled or something.
Thats not really a blow to Sony at all. As Sony confirmed that the console is backwards compatible with the PS1/2 people can just buy a PS2 version. Don't really get the bickering here about the jap/eu versions totally retarded and immature.
this is messed up! why would konami want to go exclusive on this game? has Sony not provided a successful home for Konami throughout these numberous years?? MS must have paid a lot for this deal.
Well Sh!t happens...Anyhow true gamers will get a 360 just to play it no matter what the circumstances. Fanboys just will never play it this year..well thats expected they don't touch other consoles. So the point goes to Xbox 360 +1.. We all know sony has the majority of the market share, thats why I don't care so much for thier news or should I say its never really big news since they are on TOP. Anything Xbox 360 do to take away market share is always big news. Little by little I would like the PS3/360 to be even, or even the 360 just below them so it proves its not the crappies "next-gen" system Fanboys like to think it is. I don't care about either winning. Either way sony looses. I don't see them taking more then what they have.
im sure money was involved, but when is Money never involved in business..lol Look at EA and what they did to my 2K football series..them bastards, I hate madden.
Pro Evo and Winning eleven is same thing. Fifa is good too and its all exclusive to the 360 for 12 months! Say what you want sony fanboys but it aint gone change nothing. lol
Why the hell would anybody want to play the ps2 version when the game will be on next gen consoles or should i say console? lol What are you sony fanboys smokin?
Great Day for All soccer/football fans.I Know the Xbox 360 version will have sweet online Support.
bill gates is one smart guy,i mean by securing pes6 for 12 months means he can sell loads of 360 in japan because the japanesse love pro evo.
Yeah i can't believe these are going exclusive to that box. But they are also coming out on the ps2. The game is going to be exactly the same. Just on the 360, it will have better graphics. Worth buying the 360 for? Nope. Not when they are basically the same game. And for [email protected] the Xbox Ballser who said, why would anyone want the ps2 version, well, 100+ million people have ps2s. Only like around 5 million people have 360's. And they ain't gonna buy a 360 just for this, not when its basically the same on both consoles. Go figure But it sickens me to see Pro Evolution Soccer 6 on that xbox upgrade
...and you know this.
Exactly atom. The 360 version will be alot better than the current gen versions especially the version on the weakest console of the last gen (ps2). So shut da fuk up shadow [email protected] wit yo lame ass. box ballser? get some new jokes.
PS2 have sh!tty drives that brake down in 1 to 2 years. At least 50% of PS2 owners had to buy new ones that's why. Here in the closet I have one also. Sh!tty hardware quality and NO SERVICE from Sony. MS gives me 2 years full return and new exchange within one to two weeks. Now that is service. How long has PS2 done to sell 50 million PS2's that are still working? Right. It's now almost 2007. Seven years. 360 sells 5 million in 7 months (december 2005 up to end of june 2006) and will sell 10 million this year. If it sells 10 million a year and sales keep growing when the gameslibrary keeps growing, getting Fifa 2007 and PES6 which PSZero won't get. It will kick hard in Europe/England. We love soccergames. So after 7 years something like at least 70 million 360's can be sold. Working ones that is. If not exchanged for new working ones. And how much you sell isn't even most important, these facts are: Attach rate games: PS2/Gamecube: 1.9 per unit original XBOX: 2.4 per unit 360: 4.5 per unit hardware extra's: 3 per unit 360 sold XBOX Live? A huge succes, in april 2006 3 million users on constant bases. By next E3 at least doubled that number Most fast selling console? XBOX 360 Most exclusives? 360 has double PSZero exclusives. Most innovative and exciting ones? 360. Best game of the year, most awards? Gears of War, no UT2007, Resistance or any other PS shooter came near. Face it. 360 jump in, PS3 run away
Fifa series sells a consistant 3 to 4 million copies every year just on the sony system. Pro evo also sells 3 to 4 million every year on the ps2. Thats 6 to 8 million soccer fans that will only be able to play NEXT gen soccer on the xbox 360. Big news. I see a trend coming. Same with WWE wrestling and other titles.
And the 360 is delivering games for everyone. You want next gen wrestling? Only on the 360 this year. You want next gen soccer? Only on the 360 this year. You want next gen basketball? Play it first on the 360 this year. You want next gen madden? Play it first on the 360 this year. You want GTA? Exclusive content only on the 360. You want Halo 3? Only on the 360. You want Gears of war? Only on the 360. You want Mass Effect? Only on the 360. You want next gen gaming without a major hit to your wallet? Only on the 360. You want hd dvd movie playback in your next gen console? Only with the hd dvd add on. You want to video chat with family and friends and put your face in games? Only on the 360 this fall. You want wireless controllers as a standard in your next gen console? Right now...Only on the 360. You want usb ports on your next gen system? Right now, only on the 360. you want an award winning online gaming structure? Live anywhere connects gamers on PC's, Cell phones, and 360's. No other next gen system has that type of online service thats proven and time tested.
sh!t... that was scary... thank u microsoft for giving those 360s fans (esp with 6 360s) false hope yet again.. phew.. ps3 w/o pes.. cant even begin to imagine.. yep real deal, i do see a trend.. microsoft keep bullsh!tting and u keep licking..
