You have to be kidding… PES 2008 tied to console

2 min read

I tried, I really did… I had made a promise this morning that I wouldn’t report on any bad PS3 news today and I think I was doing very well, that is however until I received a tip off about PES 2008 in my mailbox….

I have already posted about the terrible lag and and framerate issues in PES 2008 but this takes the cake… (no not that cake)

If you are brave enough to attempt the terrible online play in PES 2008 you will have noticed that you need to register… so what is that about? 

It’s also worth noting the online registration process, which locks your copy of the game to your Konami account for online play. This means that if you ever want to sell your copy of the game, the next person will be unable to play online unless he or she has your registration details.

So Konami has taken it upon themselves to try and stop the second hand game sales by gimping the game once you use it online. It would be easy to now just blame Konami and move on, however they haven’t implemented this system in the Xbox 360 version

Not to mention that if you have the memory of an elephant you may remember Sony stating that they are going to tie games to the PS3 to stop the second hand trade.

Konami so far has refused to comment on this but it is true and so if you have a choice make sure you buy the Xbox 360 version of this game. Tying a game to a console is absolutely unacceptable. Do not allow it to become the norm.
