For anyone having the PS3 and 360, I hear that the 360 version looks better and runs smoother, as all EA sports titles do. Below is one example

Mate, I can't compare them side by side at the same time, but when I played it on firend's 360 and my PS3 I seriously couldn't tell the difference.

If there is a difference it is "very subttle" as your example says.

How did you manage to flip it around? :)

I have a few questions of my own,

1. An issue I have with the demo is the response time when powering up a low or high through ball, is it much more responsive in the final version?

2. How is the ability to head the ball different from the demo? More specifically, when you are in the 16 box...

Hehehe, I just flipped my webcam around (from my lap top) to take a photo of my Tele. I know, I'm lazy...

1. It's pretty much the same... I don't have any problems with reponse time at all... not have I noticed this before.

2. I scored quite a few headers. They are pretty realistic. I scored a few diving headers too. It takes a little practice to time the shot and to position your receiving player. Once you get hold of that, it's great.

Can anyone confirm if the Estadio da Luz (Benfica's stadium) is in the game? I see it on some lists and not on others. But I did see it in a FIFA 08 trailer, so I'm kinda confused. If anyone could confirm this it would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Question related to the Xbox 360 version...

I thought there was supposed to be a way for you to manually take control of your keeper on set peices and during the normal course of play, but I could not figure out how to do it in the demo. So can you in fact play as your keeper, and if so, how do you switch to him?

This would be extremely helpful on direct-to-goal set peices because your AI controlled keepers don't know how to position themselves to save their lives.

After playing the game since it was released (ps3 by the way..) the game is very good, the best fifa so far..... but here comes the but... but for some very annoying but very easely fixed problems....

here is my list of problems...

1: can't use the d-pad to move your player..(doesn't bother me but my friend was very annoyed, he said it made the game unplayable for him...)

2: it takes to long to power up a long pass, you get tacked before you can finish your pass...

3: it's not possible to play with 2 players with 2 different teams that is.. it is only possible to play on the same team or in friendly's against each other...

4: its not possible to customise your controler....

5: the goalkeepers arn't good enough...

there is more but those are the most annoying...

Good points:

1:fantastic graphics

2: good A I,

3:great commentary...

4: the best fifa by far should give Pes a run for its money....

ill give my quick + and - of the game

- no practice mode
- lack of stadiums
- substitutions should include a new cinematic and not be so predictable (e.g drogba and lampard off sheva and ballack on, all 4 times i played chelsea they did this)
- faces are not very good
- through balls just dont work well enough unless your 2 player
- when defending you often accidently push your defender the wrong way and the striker can just skip past, very common with beginners
- manager mode is still not extensive enough
- player growth is a bit weird
BIGGEST - for me - have to unlock the 3rd kit i hate playing as gunners vs sunderland coz only the top is different, and its so hard to get points, i need 7500 for the 3rd kit, just one of them and i only got 1500 so far and iv played a full season!
- hard to tell when the stadium is full half full and or 75% full
- winning a trophy and then only get to see a pic of it with your club emblem next to it is very dissapointing
+ graphics are awsome
+ goals are very realistic
+ loads of boots in the game
+ atmosphere is good with crowd and commentary
+ messi and others kick and dribble just like messi, i was so impressed by this!
+a-league is in it
+ the difference when you play MK dons and Manchester united and the difference when you play home and away

thats about it and i would give it a good 8.5/10 on the PS3

I seriously don't believe this.

Noone has posted about the biggest gameplay issue of all.

CROSSING.

How many times in real football do you see the ball crossed exactly perfect to the strikers head. Then the striker stays still in the box, jumps vertically (along wtih the defender by his side of course) in the air and then somehow finds some power off of this move and scores a goal?

This is where the gameplay engine is broke. Crossing is an important way to attack - mixing up the variety of how goals are scored is a result of how crossing is set up. Players must RUN ONTO the crosses not just stand still and get delivered a perfect ball to their heads every damn time.

I'm sorry, but this alone is close to being a break for me. I'm very excited to buy the game after a long absence from the FIFA scene - but the crossing has got to be fixed somehow.

I understand there is manual crossing, but what about the AI? That can't be fixed.

Don't say it's perfect gameplay - becasue it's not, crossing the ball is too important to be left out of the realism spectrum here.

I agree with you, the game is far from perfect and the more you play it the more faults will be found, this is normal... I'm still looking forward to pes 2008 though I liked the demo..(a bit fast but this has been fixed..abd a few other things..) no game especially sport games are perfect , but this is a good game NOT a great game.........

its a shame its not possible to patch games on the ps3... at least not officially..

you guys are just not crossing right, you would be running all the way to the bi line and crossing with the power bar, try push cross 3 times, try holding L1 and then crossing early, players will move to the ball, you guys just gotta mix it up, your doing the same thing every time, not the game

Nanny, that is a good tip and thank you, however you forgot the last part of my post: the AI cannot be fixed. This means the goals you concede are of the same nature in matters of crossing. That is the more frustrating part to be honest.

With crossing aside, I'm really enjoying this game. As a PES fan, that is tough to say. I think EA have finally done something right - this is a very challenging and thus exciting game to play.

This is where your gripe is broken, put it on manual and you won't have that problem of "broken gameplay" TAKE OFF ASSISTED!
