PES 2011: Seabass gets interviewed

You may have already heard that PES 2011 will get a beta so some happy-few can give a try at the new Master League Online. If you want to have access to it, you can try your luck right here, but until you can really see if Konami is back in the game this year, here is a video interview of the famous Seabass.

PES has still a looong way to catch up with FIFA, which keeps improving every year.

PES fans & Fifa fans are the worst.

I'd have said GT fans and Forza fans. :p

PES fans & Fifa fans are the worst.
Actually, I'd say just PES fans. They buy the game regardless of how good it is and still believe that, each year, "THE KING IS BACK!" It's pathetic. FIFA has quite obviously been the better game since FIFA 09, and I'd be pretty surprised if that changed this year. Saying that, PES 2011 looks a lot more respectable this year.

I used to be an outright PES fan (back when it was untouchable), but now I'm just a football fan; whichever game is the best is the one I'll buy.

I'm in the same boat as Blmbox. Used to be a rabid PES fanboy, mainly on PES 2007. I even skipped 1 year of football games when PES 2008 and FIFA '08 were out because both sucked big time. One year later, I couldn't wait more so I was forced to try FIFA 09 because PES 2009 was still awful. Fell in love with FIFA since then even with its flaws, most of them fixed on FIFA 10. From FIFA 11 and on it's only matter of polishing and improving game modes, the gameplay is almost perfect, whereas PES keeps dealing with all king of serioues technical and gameplay issues.

It's true that PES 2011 looks better this year but that gameplay and animations still need a lot more work to make me consider going back. On a side note, I still play with the PES button layout just in case I have to go back some day.

Haha, that's funny... so do I! Well, if you mean that I use the 'X' button (or square if you're on the PS3) to shoot.

I didn't even see the video, but I'm sure it's about how they have completely rebuilt the game for the nth time, yet it still is a mediocre game when you compare it to its competition.

I remember the days of Winning Eleven 8, damn that game was good.

The old days will come back with PES...

I guess playing it and FIFA11 at the Gamescom in 3 days will answer a lot of questions.
But to be quite blunt: I don't have any hopes at all for PES anymore.

Man I wish 2kGames would give me a football game as good as their NBA2K games. With signature moves, where you can tell at once, just from the way a player moves with ball, who it is.

And I mean every player, not just Shaq&LeBron.

But I guess that's not happening.

Ever.

Trying playing PES 5. That footie game was a masterpiece.

I know. Although the improvments to PES4 were quite subtle, I still think it was the best football game Konami spawned in the last decade or so.

They just missed to jump on the next gen train. Although it's sugarcoated with prettier textures and such, you just see that it's main chassis, the whole game engine, is still extremly similar, or to be more drastic, is built ontop of the last gen engine.

This is especially obvious if you catch a glimpse of the PS2 iterations of PES. The animations and physics are basically the same (except for running with less FPS) as the next gens' ones.


But on the other hand I also have to say: Memories are often prettier than the facts.
Me and my friends have gotten better in playing PES and finding and exploiting game glitches and "easy" strategies.
I betcha that if you or me played PES 5 now for 3 weeks straight, we would find more flaws in the gameplay and "easy" stragies than we found back then.
