Jon Murphy has revealed that the ability to use the D-pad will still be available in PES 2012.
The news comes as a little surprise to us, after Konami originally stated that the d-pad controls had been removed from the Pro Evolution Soccer series.
However, after a number of complaints from the community, Konami have performed a u-turn and have now made a decision, which will see users being given the ability to use the d-pad in PES 2012.
Jon Murphy confirmed the news this afternoon;
Personally, I'm with Jon on this one. Eventually, we're all going to have to make the switch, to get the most out of the game.
And yes, we are going to suggest to everyone to stop using the d-pad, and make the inevitable switch to the analogue sticks.
