As many of you may know, Konami is currently holding an online tournament for its highly successful sports title, Pro Evolution Soccer 2008.
The tournament kicked off last December and is now down to its final 32 players, fighting in the trenches for £50,000. However, it has transpired this week that top player in the tournament has been kicked out of the tournament for apparently cheating.
Konami went on record explaining:
"Konami Digital Entertainment and Play.com will not tolerate cheating of any kind and reiterates its commitment that only the best players will be eligible to win the competition.
"The tournament is being overseen by Konami's respect PES Rankings team, which is charged with dealing with disputes and has ultimate authority. Those caught cheating will be banned from the competition and will face a ban of up to one year from PES Rankings."
Specific details to how the player cheated are unknown at the moment, but it is speculated that lag abuse is the cause of the dismissal. Guess the player didn’t have the natural skills for that £50,000 cash prize.

I don't play this as I don't think its evolved from Pro soccer 2 but my mate is addicted to this game online and he says that players seem to warp around the pitch when he plays some people. He thought it was just a bug in his game.

lol you call your friend, you see its hard to play these games and if you change strategy all the time the one facing you will die fast. Everyone got their special tricks and such so if you call 2 of your pro friends over and change then its huge chance that you will win. im glad they checked his background and the way he is now.

www.YourPS34free.com/index.php?ref=4755645 This link will guide you through the EASY process of getting a brand new retail Playstation 3! Here is how it works! First and foremost this is NOT like those other offers you see all over the web, where you are required to sign up for a million "free" offers that end up taking forever and costing you a bunch of money and a headache. You click this link and sign up for their referral program.That’s it! Once you sign up for your ONE required offer you use the link they provide you and post it on forums, or send it to friends, and if someone uses that link to sign up and complete one offer of their own, you get a referral. Here is the cost breakdown of the referral system. 8 Referrals = New retail 40gb PS3 10 Referrals = New retail 60gb PS3 12 Referrals = New retail 80gb PS3 and ONE game of your choice 14 Referrals = New retail 80gb Ps3 and two games YOU CHOSE (includes new releases like Uncharted: Drake's Fortune or Ratchet and Clank Future etcâ€¦) Plus many more PS3 offers and others including up to $475 in CASH I have been a member for 3 days and have 10 completed referrals on my account, well on my way to my chosen 14 (Already enough for a 60gb or 40gb PS3). I also have 250 people, who have signed up; if any 4 of them complete an offer I have my Ps3 and two games. It can take up to 3 days for a completed offer to process, so I may have already reached my goal. The company even covers shipping and handling so there is no hidden costs of ANY KIND. This website even has you create an account so you can track your progress the entire way through, and once your package ships, they supply a UPS tracking link. It is extremely user friendly I recommend you research this company online, as they are proven legitimate and not in any way a scam. EGM magazine actually did a story on them 2 years ago to see if they were legit and did in fact get a free system, so they proved it worked! The way it is possible is these sponsor's pay this company money for referring people to them, and using a portion of that money, buy you a PS3 as an incentive for helping them advertise. It is a pretty nice scheme, but it results in me getting something for free so I don't care. This will be my third free thing to get from this company; I have a 360 elite and iPhone for the cost of about 5 dollars. Enjoy your free system, free isn't a bad deal for a great console and a Blu-Ray player! www.YourPS34free.com/index.php?ref=4755645
