OK guys, my PS2 just crapped out on me, and I've already gone 1 week without Winning Eleven so it's time to replace it. My question is: do I replace it with a new PS2 - or do I upgrade and get the 360? Here are my main concerns: 1) I have always played the japanese versions (winning eleven) as opposed to the North American/European versions of PES - is there any difference in gameplay between the japanese WE and the N.A/European PES or are they all exactly the same? (the one i've been playing is WE10) - what I've heard is that the north american one is a little more "arcadey" - is there any truth to this? 2) The controller of the XBox - does it lend well to the game? Like I said, I've only ever played it on Sony consoles so things like... the R2 button which I use all the time on the PS2 - where is that mapped to on the XBox (I've not played the 360 at all so I don't know the controller...) - and I use the DPad - is it awkward to hold the controller where the d-pad is located for the 360? 3) Patches/Option files - I like to download patches and option files as we all do on this community - but does that work on the 360?? 4)PES2008 - is there any benefits or playing it on a ps3 over a 360? Is it still being released on the ps2 or are they finished with the ps2 now? I'll add more questions as I think...with the price drop of the 360 coming very soon, I'm highly considering it - just wanna make sure my beloved WE works fine on it.
