If you were planning on polishing your boots in readiness for the first of two PES 2012
demos, then I'm afraid it's an early shower for you. You may remember our original article
in which we noted that the first demo had suffered from unknown issues and a delay.
With the cancellation now official, Jon Murphy (team leader at PES 2012
) made the announcement via Twitter with a lot of regret. We've run his tweets together for ease of reading:
Sorry to confirm that due to issues on both sides we can't release the 1st PES2012 demo for 360. We've tried hard but have to give up. We - Konami, the PES team and myself - are all really, really sorry. On a brighter note we'll announce the next demo shortly and release is just around the corner. Hope you still give it a try.
Of course professionally Jon can't come out and state the precise reasons on Twitter, but it's clearly an issue from within Microsoft as the equivalent demo landed on PS3 and PC last month.PES 2012
is all set for release on October 14th, 2011.
