For the first-ever time, it looks like PlayStation 4 users are on the verge of finally being able to create and share option files.
Once installed, an option file will allow users to add custom kits, players, team emblems, and more, into their game. Since PES on PS2, Edit mode has been a predominant feature of the series, and ever since, we've seen a proportion of the fanbase spend more time editing than actually playing in-game matches!
Konami announced Image Importing for the PS4 version of PES 2016, meaning users will be able to use jpeg/png files to customize their own kits, emblems and manager icons. However, when the feature was revealed last month, there were concerns that, similarly to PES 2015, option file editors would not be able to share their work with other users.
But following today's news, it looks like things are about to change.
Although the feature is currently being tested, option file sharing looks more than feasible for PES 2016, according to Konami's Adam Bhatti:
Option file sharing for PS4 looks all good so far (like PS3). Will be testing in the coming weeks and will update. Time to party #PES2016— Adam Bhatti (@Adam_Bhatti) July 16, 2015
Sorry for not being certain, but huge thanks to @PlayStation for their continued collaboration and support. We're gettin somewhere! #PES2016— Adam Bhatti (@Adam_Bhatti) July 16, 2015
Assuming everything goes smoothly, we'd like to give a huge well done and thank you to Sony for opening up their console.
Microsoft, it's your move...
