Regular readers will remember that we exclusively revealed that a football game from Konami was in the works for Microsoft?s Xbox machine and was slated for release in time for Christmas of this year. At the time, it was unclear as to whether the game would be Pro Evolution Soccer/Winning Eleven incarnation or something completely new.
Well, today the matter has been cleared up, with Konami stating that a version of Pro Evolution Soccer will hit the Xbox this year.
Other details were scant. In a press release containing 370+ words, incredibly no detailed information was revealed, quite an achievement, and perhaps a world record in videogames PR.
However, our source last year did confirm that the game would see full online play, a feature that arguably should have been in place for some time now.
However, fear not, as the next PlayStation 2 PES outing will also see full online play, as well as "significantly beefed up management stuff."
We'll bring you more on the new Pro Evolution Soccer for Xbox as it breaks.
