Naturally, I'm sure most of you are upset about the disappointing news we posted yesterday, announcing that we will have to wait until mid-March, until we get the next DLC release.
Recently, I've seen some pretty harsh comments thrown towards Konami, stating their "lack of efforts" shown towards their fans. I appreciate that you have the right to be annoyed, but I'd like to remind you of a few key points, just to ensure you know all the facts before you start criticizing.
Compared to EA Sports, Konami are a much smaller company - in terms of both finance and man-power. I hope you understand that it's perfectly acceptable for them "to do less" than EA.
EA are a giant in the gaming industry, with huge financial backing. Whether it be player stat tweaks or routine transfer/loan fixes, the huge size of EA Sports allows FIFA to have regular game updates. Simply, they have more time, more money and more labour to invest their necessary experience, into the game.
However, that does not mean that Konami aren't trying their hardest to give us the ultimate game.
I can't understand how people can label Konami as "lazy" - most especially, Jon Murphy. Not that they need to, but Konami spend countless hours listening to the fans for improvements for every aspect of the game. I believe the efforts shown by JM are greatly under-appreciated by some sections of the PES fan base, unfortunately.
Of course, it's upsetting to hear that we will have to wait until March for the January transfers to take effect. But surely, until then, you can just download an option file... I can't imagine there will be too many people reading this, who don't know what an option file is!
The OF creators will do the transfers manually themselves, so you won't have anything to worry about.
I accept that not everyone will bother to download an option file but for the majority of us, there is a very easy solution to this particular problem.
On a final note, I won't accept it when people say they are choosing FIFA next year because of the recent DLC issue. Of course, I believe every one is entitled to their own opinion, but surely you would prefer to play the game which is better to play, rather than the game that has better downloadable content?
