PES6 now works on PS3

Konami's popular soccer game now fully backward compatible on the next-gen console.

Football fanatic PlayStation 3 owners get a bonus this week with the latest firmware update fixing all the issues with PlayStation 2 title Pro Evolution Soccer 6.

The PlayStation 3 was launched across Europe and Australasia on March 23, minus the PlayStation 2 Emotion Engine, causing a number of issues with gamers' PS2 gaming collections. Emulation software within the machine took the place of the chip, although several top titles had some kind of playability issues on the day of launch.

Firmware version 1.70, which has been available to download since April 20, updates the backward compatibility database to make the game "fully compatible," according to Konami. Users can now apparrently play both offline and online matches "with no known issues."

A spokesperson for Konami commented: "The problems with PES6 on the PS3 are now resolved--which should tide us over until the full PS3 one!"

Well i don't believe that Sony would make such a blunder of putting in emotion engine for extra cost in the first place only to have it removed but if Emulation softwares are working well then i guess its all good !!! :D

I wonder if the software emulation will ever allow us to play our PS2 games in high-definition resolutions. If they provide that capability, they can have the Emotion Engine for all I care. It's the one true benefit of the 360's software emulated backward compatibility.

I bought Guitar Hero II for the PS3 thinking that it would play in my new PS3, but it doesn't! I'm pissed because firmware update 1.7 led me to believe that the problem had been fixed. So now I have the game, but no way to play it since my release-day-PS2 died late last year. Please help me if you have a solution to his problem. Thanx!

Xbox owners need firmware updates to play almost all of their favorite original Xbox games, so you're not exactly left out. Considering how solid the PS3 software emulation library actually is, there is zero reason to complain. At least they're fixing things.

I still can't believe we still need firmware updates to be able to play PS2 games on our PS3's.Old news, I know, but it still annoys me.

'"American" football is just a ladies-sport, a bunch of sissies wearing protective gears all over their bodies just because the might start to cry if someone tackled them' Call me crazy, but I have never seen a "soccer" player take the hits that NFL players do. Nice try, but "soccer" pretty much blows.

I guess is sucks to be a ps3 owner without the emotion engine chip in it. XD

somini...Are you on crack man? How many times does a "football" player get barely grazed by another and just falls down screaming to have the other player get a card only to get right up again? "American" football players wear protective gear because they pound each other INTO THE GROUND. If you have comments like that, you never saw a game, obviously....bunch of sissies....please.

I hate that people call football "soccer", WTF is soccer, IT'S FOOTBALL, the sport that americans play isn't football, how often do they use their feet? The so-called "soccer" is the real football. "American" football is just a ladies-sport, a bunch of sissies wearing protective gears all over their bodies just because the might start to cry if someone tackled them, yeah, that's a "real" sport. Americans, if you think that you're tough, then start playing rugby instead of your "American football".

i agree with you snipe2004! i don't see the BLU-RAY dying like ignorant people claim it is, over here in the UK, i see the BLU-RAY becoming even more and more popular, especially after the ps3 launch. haha microsoft does not even give 360 buyers HD DVD drives in either of their console packs! even the *cough* elite pack has nothing.

all you console war fans, PLEASE re-read the topic, this is not about who's got a better console, its just a damn online fix announcement. go elsewhere and b!tch and moan. thank you in advance!

leave it to the fanboys to come in here and tout that the 360 still has sold more than the ps3, or argue for whatever reason to justify their purchase of a 360. Like I've said before, all fanboys that b!tch about problems with the ps3 are just going to be corrected easily through firmware updates. And the ps3 is actually picking up steam anyway.

@sonygirl23: Actually you forget that everybody was on the Playstation cause that was all that was really out there and games were only being made for that at the time. For a good while, Sega's Dreamcast was top dog. Sony won that "console war" because of better marketing and brand-name recognition to the average consumer; which didn't even remotely play video games back then. Now everybody has somehow played a gaming console. But in regards to this, am I reading it right that the EU and AUS PS3 only had emulation of the Emotion Engine? Not actual hardware for it? I thought there was just a simple firmware issue that would active the the Emotion Engine in the PS3 hardware. Oh well, PES6 working = a good thing. :D

Hell yeah, PES6 works for the PS3. I cant believe the PS2 version outdoes the 360 version :D Konami's really playing with Microsoft. I expect MS probably gave them a few million to make it better than the PS version lol.

this game OWNSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. honestly, either sony or ms should have just grabbed exclusivity rights to this game and they would be miles ahead. and there is a reason why this made news because this game is FRICKING huge in Europe.

sonygirl... just keep playing Playstation and stop hating on the Xbox 360! Jeez i hate these excuses "PS3 is gettin there...". Jeez just appreciate that the 360 is a good console! Oh yah and Halo 3 will not determine the 360 success... it will just maintain its reign!

angelGP32
angelGP32

sonygirl, yeah, so you didn't see comparison of games that were on both systems, PS3 and 360? If so, then i guess you saw that every game they compared but i believe one, the 360 version looked better. I'm not saying the PS3 won't get there, but for the time being, the systems are probably more evenly matched than you think with the 360 being ahead, at least at this time.
