I called my contact in Konami yesterday.
I THINK they might change their release date, one whole release date for the entire world. I told him that the US postponed release date was a disaster (I used other words for the sake of the conversation).
But I don't think that August, or September, or even October will be the release month for PES09. If what Seabass is correct, and they hired hundreds of programmers to redo the entire thing, it will take them at least 1 year and a half, 2 years.
Even games like Ninja Gaiden are receiving complains because they are not truly Next Gen.
FIFA received praises this year for it's X360 version, too bad we don't have a super game for PC, because the graphics in computer are FAR SUPERIOR than the consoles.
I compared Assassin's Creed, PS3 vs PC, PC version is FAR SUPERIOR.
The only "official" thing that I was told is that Konami is not allowed yet to talk about PES09, who knows what they are doing. They should release a working PES08, called PES09 though, with updated teams, that could fix things a bit.
