    I thought the servers for pes 6 and pes 2008 were still online? Did this game really sell that badly?

    PES 6 and 2008 are handled by Microsofts servers/peer2peer network whereas after that it is handled by Konami.

    Why do they insist on having their own servers? Let MS run them so they don't fucking close down!

    I have never tried maxing a soccer game. Really wish EA wouldn't do this and make themselves look worse than before..and here I thought it was impossible.

    I was really hoping to not boost this...looks like I'll have to. New games tomorrow plus games I already own will equal no time for this.

    Happy Christmas everyone.

    LOL Yeah, and pretty soon it will be every publisher unless gamers refuse to support this kind of behavior.

    Smart Publisher's let MS handle the servers.

    The thing is, outside of the achievement community, most of the people who buy sports titles DO want the new one every year, and trying to keep up servers for games that almost no one plays is not realistic economic wise.

    Does MS ever "handle" servers? I was always under the impression that multiplayer console games where either served from a companies servers, or through peer2peer, host style networks. It just seems to me that if microsoft ever did handle these servers,noone would have their own

    are we sure ultimate player is an online achievement. You also missed another online achievement called Total Combination. Score 30000 point. Its definetely online
    I do not boost with RANDOMS. I have enough great friends to boost with.

    IIRC, I think to get Ultimate Player you have to unlock one or some of these other online achievements. Correct about Total Combination though.Fortunatley, I got these online achievments out of the way about a year ago. Unfortunatley, I bought this PoS game and still have over 300g left to obtain. :(
