"Microsoft head butts FIFA, Pro Evo Soccer into exclusivity"

the Xbox 360 will be the only next-gen console with fifa07 and pes6. for me, this is absolutely huge news. fifa is crap, and doesn't bother me, but im a massive fan of the pes series. surely this will have a big impact on the console war between the ps3 and the 360 (there's a lot of non-gamers who'll buy a console just to play the latest fifa/pes). thoughts?

i seriously doubt it was excellent work by microsoft. it seems more likely that ea and konami just didn't want to delay their games to wait for the ps3 launch. still... a year with exclusive next-gen football games will surely help ms shift a lot more 360s :P

The XboX is kinda a waste imo, but that's another matter.

Just like the KOTOR, KOTOR2 and Jade Empire xbox exclusives that all ended up on PC. I'd rather wait than blow the money on a console that I'd probably never buy any other or very few games for.
