    Atleast PES 6 and PES 2008 are still active as I need to do those 2 as I started them already but never would I buy a PES game again. I didn't even buy FIFA 10 or 11 because the achievements sucked balls.

    This really annoys me. I've put so much into this game and I hate that they're shutting it down when I'm not finished playing it. I hate the fact that I only have a month to do it and there's barely anyone online to achieve these.

    Pooey!!
    Gamerdad ftw!

    wow I honestly wondered if ANYONE played soccer games on xbox bbefore this post.
    It's called football, we invented it so you call it what we call it... we don't call what you call 'football' by our own name - we just stick American in front of it to differentiate. If we called it "rugby for fat people in padding" you would get offended.

    Oh, and I'd reckon Fifa 11 is probably the highest selling sports game in the world (2.6m in first week). laugh

    For 'Ultimate Player', the guide says that the achievement 'Combination Goal' is required + essentially completing the rest of the cups, etc.

    Now can you just unlock 'Combination Goal' and get the rest later or do you need to do all the requirements for 'Ultimate Player' and unlock it prior to the 31st January cut-off?

    lol.

    But yes, annoying that the servers are closing, I've got like none of the online achievements.

    If you have "Combination Goal" before the cut off date, then you should still be able to unlock "Ultimate Player" afterwards. I included it in this list because an online achievement is part of the requirements for this one; for people who haven't unlocked "Combination Goal" before Jan 31st, they will not be able to unlock "Ultimate Player" either.

    Pretty quick server closure if you ask me. At least give the game another year... Also it's pretty bizarre that PES 6 and 2008 are still going (due to them being P2P). Whatever, Fifa is the king again these days.

    Been looking about and not found huge amounts on information just yet but there are two versions of the game due to a DLC update which has been pulled from the marketplace.

    If creating sessions you should specify which version of the game you have.

    Also, I'm not too sure what would happen if I deleted this DLC, ie my save file might not be compatible with the disk player database or something - as you can't re-download this update.

    I guess worst case scenario you would just lose all single player process you have made so far...

    The game barely works online, you can't go ten seconds before there's a blip. It's not worth the hassle!

    I must add this, games should not come with online achievements if they are going to have that functionality removed at a later date.

    PES 6 is still the best in the series online so it's not a major issue really
