55w ago - Sony's Latin America Blog Manager Lorenzo Grajales has officially unveiled a first look at Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 for the PS3 entertainment system today with details included in an interview below!
To quote: A few weeks ago, we traveled to Sao Paulo, Brazil to meet with our fellow PlayStation bloggers in Brazil and to attend the debut of Pro Evolution Soccer 2013.
This was the first time we had an opportunity to play the game, and some members of the development team were there to answer our questions. A few games later, here's what we learned:
This year, the PES team has lots of new people onboard who are sure to inject new life into this soccer simulation game, which already has millions of fans around the world.
In addition to all-new AI that I noticed after just a few games, PES 13 has implemented many new features in direct response to fan feedback, including better control that gives you more freedom, such as manual passing and full manual shooting, giving you more control over your actions.
It is a bit difficult to use at first, but highly rewarding once you master it. In the short time I used this feature, I obviously couldn't master it, and so I had to resort to traditional shooting.....
142w ago - Although many fans have been disappointed to discover that English was not an included language for Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 EUR on PS3, fishcake over at the Evo-Web forums (linked above) put together English menus from the 2011 demo version for use with the European release!
According to developers at Konami, only the English version will be in English as this is to prevent imports due to the fact that its out in Europe a week before the UK.

Balls can now be spread absolutely anywhere with surgical precision, with long balls into space, short passes to feet and intricate one-twos allowing the player to dictate play and control the tempo of a match.

"Not long to go now until we release a demo for everyone to test. You'll get a chance to see the new PES for yourselves and make up your minds about how we've reflected what the fans want."
