It's going to be at least two years before we get it, and in the meantime the 3G spectrum has become saturated and is struggling to cope with the smartphone boom.This is going impact on the perceived value of stuff like the Vita here, which is a shame.The auction for the spectrum for LTE hasn't happened yet, for many reasons (including infighting between the MNOs). And it's not the 3G spectrum that's struggling, more the business case to upgrade/provide the masts and backhaul is weak.

Konami on PES PS3 issues

Offline, it's fine for me, even on my shitty 15 year old telly, but online is poor as poor can be. They've made it slightly better, but it's still not great.

Pro Evo is far from perfect, but I still prefer it to the FIFA demo.

gaselite - try both demos and see what you think. Don't base everything on one review. It ain't as bad as people are making out.

And price. In2Games tried with the Gametrak, but the price point was too high. I think it was 75 with a game, needs to have the peripheral essentially bundled free

TGS: Konami takes on Wii Fit

Dougs

Always one to defend the Wii for graphics, but that looks truly dreadful. Could be a laugh though I guess. Depends on the events.

As for the Wii Fit board, not interested in that, but am interested in other games that make use of it, such as snow boarding or jet skiing etc.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 - Wii

Dougs

Hmm, lack of online play might be enough to dissuade me from picking this up. I really like 2007, and whilst far from perfect, it is lots of fun. I guess it could depend on the trade in value once the reviews for this start to come out.

Personally, I'd prefer System3 to get on with Leaderboard and Masters Tennis!

Remember this though, don't think I ever completed it. I thought it was rock hard. But then I am a bit rubbish at games really.

Do the comments or forum thread of every single review of a Wii game have to descend into the same tiresome rants. So you don't like the console, or don't think there are enough good games for it (which is subjective by the way, lots of people have been having lots of ofun with Excite Truck, Tiger Woods and SSX in particular)? Oooh, it's not pretty enough. BFD. Sell your console and let someone else have it. Totally agree with Shinji re number of games too.

I agree with deem (as the forum thread testifies). I've never had to look at the onscreen animation and adjust my swing accordingly. I reckon we've got the only 2 fully functinal copies of the game. :)

Someone mentioned Leaderboard Golf - I think it is slated for next year. Being developed by System3, along with Tennis Masters I think.

2 shows within the space of 2 weeks of each other....I suppose even companies like Sony, MS and EA can only justify the expense of erecting stands etc at one of them. Doesn't show much commitment to the UK industry or as a market, but what you gonna do?!

Surely developers have to continue developing for the curretn gen (assuming pubs are also willing to take them up). The installed base is massive now and they'd be daft to ignore that. Although the larger ones will have to look towards next gen, there's still good money to be made in the old 'uns yet!

They're all the bleeding same, all 3 series. The most frustrating experience being seeing what scrapes Kim will get herself into (dunno if she's in Series 4 though), and totally ridiculous scenarios. All good fun though.

Some EA games are good, some are bad. I make up my own mind, although I do get frustrated at the pull towards EA games purely due to marketing spend.

As for the NFL dea, couldn't really give a monkeys. Hasn't harmed PES with the FIFA deal.
