PS3 PES6 online patch

Hopefully in next firmware update.

Those of you patiently waiting for a patch to let you play PES6 against your friends using your shiny new PS3 will probably be twiddling your thumbs until a fix appears in a firmware update.

"We are doing our best to fix all known problems and any such fixes are likely to come in the form of future firmware updates," a spokesperson for Sony told Eurogamer.

However, Sony wasn't able to comment on exactly which games will be fixed first, nor the date or firmware release they'll be addressed in. So, we could be waiting even longer.

It's one of a handful of PS2 titles that has noticeable issues when running on the new console, prompting Konami to previously release a statement claiming that online play was incompatible due to the loss of internal hardware dedicated to PS3 emulation.

This emotion engine chip, the processor used in the PS2, was removed for PAL PlayStation 3 units. However, Sony promised that it would continue to support last generation of games with software updates to the system.

The most recent update was v1.6, which went live on 23rd March and significantly increased the amount of PS2 titles playable on the new console.

You can find a full list of those that work on Sony's backwards compatibility site, boasting around 1,240 golden oldies.

There's currently no news on when we can expect the next firmware update for PS3.
