In an interview, John Murphy, European PES team leader, said that the Wii version is better than the versions released earlier. The Wii version of Konami’s Pro Evoution Soccer 2008 (PC, PS2, PSP, DS) may have been released on a much later date than the PS3, Xbox 360 versions, but it’s definitely packing quite a punch.
Do be informed that the versions that were released faced much criticisms. These versions had stuttering effects for the PS3 and were pestered with never-ending online problems as reported by Xbox 360 owners.
According to Murphy, the Wii version “isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t just a good football game, it is an ambitious one.” Because of what the they were able to do with this particular version, fans of the franchise might have to rethink when playing it: “the user orchestrates the entire team.”
In addition to this, Murphy said that the Wii PES has the best online experience to date when compared to the other versions. This particular feature encourages competition, bringing out the best and the worst in players. The online play will be extending the competitive nature of the game and will be “vital in the progression of the series.”
