No PES6 on the standard XBOX… :(

Right… which ba****d decided that the new Pro Evolution Soccer game shouldn’t also be released on the standard Xbox? 

With a supported release list consisting of the 360, PS2, DS, PSP and PC, i’m slightly narked off that they’ve decided to avoid the old xbox altogether!  Considering that probably more people still have the old Xbox compared to the 360 because they cannot afford one yet… this decision is a little screwed (And the 360 version pretty much looks like a standard Xbox game too).

So that means i’ve got to wait another 5 years until 360’s are about £20 in Game until I can play the bloody thing 😦 … PES5 it is then…

    It’s on PC, so I am happy! Wouldn’t want a bloody Xbox anyway, but a new graphics card would be nice.

    Truth is, Xbox 1 game sales are so poor now that it’s not worth the time for developers – this is the primary reason Bully was made PS2 only.

    Because it sells more on PS2. Because it was originally exclusive to the PlayStation brand, and so most of its fanbase is there. Microsoft’s reasoning for tying up exclusivity to the 360 ensures that they can try and entice the fanbase to migrate to 360 and not PS3 or Wii. Of course, Sony crushed that theory a little by delaying the European PS3 release…

    Also, Billy G and Microsoft LOSE money on every 360 sold. They make it back from royalties off games. If you ONLY buy a 360 and PES6 for it, you’re actually damaging Microsoft. I believe you need to buy around 5-6 first party games for Microsoft just to break even on 360 sales.

    The 360 game is SHIT anyway. You’re better off with the PS2/PC version, quite frankly.

    I originally got the Xbox to do some modifications, and PES4/5 were just as good as the PS2 version (IMO btw, people who hate Xboxes, love Sony etc will probably disagree).
    Just means I need to stop being a tight arse and actually buy a new console… 🙂

    One thing is that there is still a large Xbox fanbase who cannot afford a 360, and don’t want to get a PS2 if they already have a Xbox… it doesn’t make sense that they provide both xbox versions, and just ensure that the 360 version has enough in it to warrent people getting a 360 just for it. Though i’ve heard that standard xbox new sales are quite poor nowadays, and most of us hard up people are just picking at second hand jobs in Game/Gamestation 🙂
