PES 2009 demo now available on the XBLM

Available for download off the Xbox Live Marketplace is a brand new PES 2009 demo from the developing crew over at Konami. The download, which clocks in at around 1.2GB, features four player online co-op and a handful of teams. Just as expected. So, now that you know your demo downloading mission, we think it's time to get a start. 1.2GB doesn't download itself.

PES 2009 corners into Europe this Autumn

As some of us pour one out for our fallen countrymen of Portugal, Croatia, Netherlands and Italy, we take solace in the fact that digital soccer football will return to Europe this Autumn. Konami today announced that its popular football franchise, Pro Evolution Soccer, will release its 2009 edition later this year for European consumers. Known for its realism and hardcore gamplay, PES 2009 attempts to capture videophiles with a newly revamped graphics engine and standard pitch-perfect (see what we did there?) animation. While PES 2008 was riddled with wacky bugs, the 2009 season promises to bring the series back to its roots of being the football game to beat. No release dates for other regions have been determined. If it's half as good as they claim it to be, all we can say is hurry!

Winning Eleven? Nope, it's Pro Evolution Soccer

Forever, there has been a divide between the Winning Eleven and the Pro Evolution Soccer fanboys of the world. A divide that had North American gamers playing Winning Eleven while their European friends played Pro Evolution Soccer. Funny thing is, they're the same game.

But that naming confusion has been put to rest and will be no more as Konami just made it official that Pro Evolution Soccer will no longer be referred to as Winning Eleven in North America and, from hence forth, will be universally titled Pro Evolution Soccer worldwide (sans Japan). That means, North American gamers will never have a chance to experience Winning Eleven 11 (hehe, eleven), but will unite with their European brothers in playing Pro Evolution Soccer 2008. Rejoice and be glad.

PES 2008 demo makes its way to North America

North America, we've got one question for you ... are you ready for some soccer? We ask, because this morning the previously released to other parts of the world Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 demo just became available to North American Xbox Live members. We suspect this 1.18GB demo to be the same as the one that was released to Europe last month, which we remember includes lots of soccer gameplay, soccer scoring and soccer running. It's what we in the business call a "soccer game". So North America, now you're just as important as Europe, because you have the PES 2008 demo ... albeit just a bit late.

Pro Evolution Soccer dated for Europe

European soccer football fans will be excited to know that Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 has been dated and will release to Europe on October 26th. Though, Konami did not announce a US release date and is still sticking with its "Winter 2007" vagueness. But then again US gamers are generally less than enthused about soccer games instead hovering towards their Maddens and other sports titles, so maybe Konami could be less than enthused about announcing the US release date. Maybe a little eye for an eye treatment. Never-less, October 26th is the date for Europe, so mark those official Winning Eleven calendars now.
