Konami announces Pro Evolution Soccer 2009

According to a press release sent out this morning, Konami has confirmed the release window for Pro Evolution Soccer 2009. With an expected retail window for this fall (autumn for the Europeans), PES 2009 hopes to rekindle the magic that made it such a classy football title in the past. Last year left a lot of its supporters feeling the last installment was a stale upgrade into the next generation football race, FIFA 2008 saw a lot of new users.
Konami has recognized this and is refining the title with new features and customization that they have said will "further bridge the gap between PES and the real thing."
Although the rest of the press release was mainly press talk, users can expect improved graphics, better online quality and expanded moves being utilized by your artificial Ronaldinho. We'll see if Konami can pull itself up after the unexpected slip last season.

Hopefully they don't mess uo this time, and perhaps use the PS3 as the main platform? They seen how MGS4 turned out, they could go the same way with PES 2009, uber-footy..

If they go with the gameplay from PS5 / WE9, then I'm OK, and perhaps buying the game.

Just don't be surprised if it uses the Konami ID trio to get you into any online matches.

I think I'm gonna try my first footbal/soccer game this year. I don't buy EA, but who cares because I hear that the one called winning eleven is the best out there. Is that true? Or is it this pro-evolution one? Hook me up please.

definately has to be better than the previous one. i reckon it should be more of pes4..... well here comes the waiting game
- 11:52am EDT - June 23rd, 2008
Winning Eleven is the Japanese version of Pro Evo, I've never played Winning Eleven but I'd imagine they're almost identical.

Thanks for the info.

psn id: gingo... fifa looked like it was finally starting to come good last year and i think marginally beat pro evo 2008 so they need to make quite a few improvements to take back the title of being the best football game around

This game is so gunna SUCK!!!!!
- 6:16pm EDT - June 23rd, 2008
PES 4 EVER!!!
but FIFA is starting to look better after what i saw in FIFA 2008...I will end up buying with FIFA 09 and PES 09.

pes has always won the football war with fifa but the 08's it was fifa that was the much better game well just have to wait and see ill probably still get fifa 09 on the account that i suopport leeds utd and you cant play as them in pes est and i just prefer the fifa gameplay
