The Pro Evo Soccer 2008 patch is now available to download, although it is a little late. The free patch is designed to rectify issues with the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Pro Evolution Soccer 2008, including the online lag and the slowdown that affects the game in both online and offline modes. The PS3 update also fixes problems associated with downloading the game to the console’s hard drive.
Konami has stated that it will continue to look into ways to extend users’ enjoyment of PES 2008 and is still working on further improvements. Despite the excitement and anticipation surrounding the updates it appears they are only mildly successful. Console owners are reporting that while the patches do improve matters online somewhat, there is still warping, teleporting and lag, despite the updates.
