PES 6 & FIFA '07 12-month exclusive to Xbox 360

FYI, a lot of you like those games.

Not sure i really understand this...PES6 and fifa07 come out for ps2, xbox360 etc. in a month or two.

Next year will be pes7, fifa 08, etc.

is this agreement for the entire fifa and pes series or just these individual titles?

Meaning they won't release it on the PS3 for a year?

Not sure that's a big deal, PS3 isn't even out yet. If they could ensure it wasn't released on PS2 then that might get people to upgrade to a 360 I suppose.

right yeah, so it will be out for all the scheduled platforms now, but can't appear on ps3 or wii until 12 months time, ie. no impact now, as neither system is out, and when the 12 months is up pes7 will be out anyway

not exactly ground-breaking news. i imagine pes6 will not be markedly different between ps2 and 360, though i am having some questions as to which system to buy it on. any good 360 games would be a bonus, though they cost 50 quid for no good reason.

And if it's massively different on the two systems will you hinder your MP skills for playing against those of us on PS2s if you get the 360 version...

Apparently the cost of development is massively higher for the next-gen systems which is why the cost is higher.

If it did go 360 only, I'd probably just get the PC version and a PS2 controller adaptor for my PC. Really can't justify buying a 360 considering how little I use my PS2.

Provost Harrison did that exact thing in PES2

sorry kits time to adjust your assumptions

computer games sell by the shitload in japan (you should know this much), and football is crazy popular.

Winning eleven has sold between 500000 to a million copies on release day before

Stats to back K_G up:

http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content_page.php?aid=10775

Winning Eleven 9 had 'disappointing' sales of only 574,000 sales in the first week.

ashley cole?

btw you don't have a #25 either from what bbc sport says...

an implicit follow-up question: why no player names on the shirts?

pre-release licensing stuff i guess...

the skin tones have been dodgy in prevous pes for some players

just under a month until PES 6 is launched.

Found this very promising review of Winning Eleven 10 (Really looking forward to talking about Winning Eleven 11...)

"playing PES5 until a few weeks ago, but that upon heading home after an afternoon in PES6's company, it felt stilted, arthritic, awkward and unrealistic. "

arthritic is the perfect word to describe what I've felt. The players rotate as if they have concrete hips and that drives me insane (because after destrying my PES5 xbox version, I've bought it again on PSP)


can't wait to buy the 360 version in a few days
Maybe I'll even consider Xbox live...

I don't know about undisputed champion, but he is good.
We have a big PES 6 tournament coming up in Reading in November, that'll be a chance for him to claim the title.

I saw this opportunity as a chance for frog humiliation.

On PES5 i was a shadow of my self on PES4 and previous versions. It just didn't agree with me.

In no sense would i consider myself undisputed champion, or even champion.

My main worry for PES6 is that there will be subtle differences and control issues between the 360 and ps2 versions that make it difficult to adapt between the two. We'll see.

I just read an article that claimed EA did incredibly inferior versions of their XBox/PS2 titles for the 360 because exactly this kind of "exclusive special" contract with Microsoft says the 360 versions had to be released simultaneously.

Actually, having read the article again, it was quite a bit worse than that.

Apparently if a title was to be released on the XBOX 360 more than two months after the other console versions, it had to be "substantially different" according to the contract.

EA solved this by simply removing a bunch of features in each title, like half the courses in Tiger Woods.
