Konami Rethinking PS3 Version of PES 2009

The series' creator, Shingo Takatsuka, recently spoke with PSM3 magazine, explaining that the situation is "so far from what we wanted. In fact, we thought about delaying it but different factors meant we had to [release it]".

"As a developer, we've worked the same way since the days of the SNES. We're simply not set up for multi-platform development," he continued.
Seabass goes on to noted that "PES 2009 is in development, but after hearing the criticism, we'll be taking it back to the drawing board. It might not be next year, but it will be soon."

wanna bet that this game stays exclusive to the PS3? I think so

gtgcoolkid5778d ago

thats where its heading I think. Rebuild the whole thing from the ground up. it seems like it might be some time before we see the next PES. kinda sucks since i love the series.

Darkiewonder5778d ago

Or they basically took every platform and worked with it at the same time? O.o

Snukadaman5778d ago

how bad is it when they cancel NEXT years version of a game...thats not even developed yet.

Prismo_Fillusion5778d ago

At least they're owning up to it.

jackdoe5778d ago

Well, considering that the PS3 version is almost broken and hated by almost all EU PS3 owners, yeah, Konami had better rethink the PS3 version of the game.

PS1/PS2 - PES by far
360/PS3 - FIFA by far

I can't see that changing until the next generation of consoles.

Fifa 10 was good, but have you seen Fifa 11? NOt that much of a step up from 10. Pro Evo 2010 was not that good, but so far, what I've seen of Pro Evo 2011 blows anything and everything Fifa out of the water.

Pro Evo is back to reclaim the number 1 spot.

just because pes has improved alot over pes 10 dont mean much, its still the same robotic game it has been for a while. and if you have played fifa 10 then moved to 11 its improved on a lot on what was already a great game.

Anderson84742d ago

agreed, pes11 is an improvement on last yr but it still lags way behind fifa at this point.. all the same issues that make it bad are still their

nix4742d ago

PES 11 is the Demon's Souls of soccer. and I LOVE IT!

pes was good till 2011
it's a fail - they tried to change the gameplay for good but they ruined it

It's a shame that people such as yourself are still stuck in the dark days, clinging onto the hope that PES will be what it once was.

I was a huge fan of PES back in the day - as big as you could get, really - and I still believe that PES 5 and 6 are the best football games of all time. But I played the PES 2011 demo and deleted it after two games, because it's just horrible. Passing is decent, but that's about it; the player movement still borders on robotic, shooting is way too floaty and the presentation is mediocre.

If you really believe that the 'King' is back, then you must have a very short memory. PES this generation has absolutely nothing on the old games, nor does it have anything on FIFA this gen either; its rival is superior in almost every way.

to its awsome best, therefore alot better than fifa arcade football 11

Jamaicangmr4742d ago (Edited 4742d ago )

It's actually a step down, they ruined the Fifa 10 formula and this is coming from a Fifa player. Am not a PES fan so i really don't know if the new one is good or not. My angle is the fact that EA messed up Fifa 11, i have spoken to many diehard fifa fans that feel the same way. Some are considering to just stick with 10 and see what 12 is like.

Cheeky Gamer4742d ago

FIFA 11 is superior to FIFA 10 in practically every way, without a doubt. I find it laughable that anyone could think any different.

FIFA 10 was a great game, but it had way too many flaws. FIFA 11 is a much more refined experience, and is all the better for it.

2000 - 2005 -> PES dominated since the PS1 days but then it came PES 2006 it was a major letdown

2006 - NOW -> Fifa started to show its quality on this current gen and it evolved year after year while PES was still way behind.

A shame that games like "This is football" just vanished during the PS2 days

ELite_Ghost4742d ago

pes2011 is much different from any next gen pes, this is really a huge improvement
