Pro Evolution Soccer 4

I heard it was coming out this month. Anyone know the date?

I'm contemplating importing this if it is a good port and the controls don't suck.

I don't think I can wait until February for Konami to bring it to N. America (well, the PS2 version, anyway).

There's no Jap version on the X-Box, it'll be released next week.
Checked that at GameFAQs.com (searched for Pro Evolution).

PAL release date seems to be the 19th of this month. Personally I'm looking forward to this game more than Halo 2, it's been my favourite videogame series since I began playing it back in 1996/7, and now it is finally going online.

I wouldnt expect much more from the Xbox version. Its just a simple port by the looks of it, and it makes sense since this game is originally made with the ps2 in mind only.

It will be just a port, but with zero slowdown (present on PS2 version) and online play.

The release is now the 26th btw.

I don't care if the game is identical to the PS2 version...hell, that would be great.

My Xbox is modded but my PS2 isn't, so that's the only way I can get it for now. Anyone know a good import store to get games from the UK (needs to ship to Canada)?

I'm just concerned about the controls. With fewer easily accessable buttons it could be a problem.

I haven't played or seen it run (I don't have a modded XBox), but I'm a member of a massive forum which is run about this game series (Winning Eleven and Pro Evolution Soccer, http://www.evo-web.co.uk/forums/), and many people do have modded machines and have being playing a beta version for about a month now. These same people have been playing the PS2 version for years, so they know what they are talking about.

Plus, it's simple logic, the XBox is more powerful than the PS2.

btw, Japan doesn't get an XBox version of this game, it's a PAL only release though NA might see an XBox version in Q1/Q2 2005 titled 'Winning Eleven 8 International', or something along those lines.

Okay, your first justification is right and its a pretty interesting bit of information.
The helpful reminder was to avoid what i quoted here. Its not that black and white.

I haven't played Sonic Heroes on either system, but I assume you mean the XBox version (if there is one) wasn't any better than the PS2 one?

They both had uncontrolable slowdowns. The GC version was a little better.
