After Microsoft announced last week that they have next-gen exclusivity on soccwer titles, Konami came out and said "It ain't so!". Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer will be a PS3 title.

This is good news for Sony fans as that was a huge blow in the European and South American markets (respectably).

EA, however, did confirm that there will be no Fifa on PS3 or Wii.

Man they can't keep their stories straight. It's still exclusive for 12 months in Europe.

Think that clears it up better then most right now. Konami has 2 very similar named titles.

Even the way they are talking it sounds like the absolute earliest a title would hit the PS3 is spring anyways which at the earliest would be around April.

So what's the lesson here? Damn companies need to carefully word their press releases better ;p

This is the second time MS has tried to play the Exclusive Title game. First it was the GTA exclusive at E3 and now the PE exclusive. Wonder if they're more scared of the PS3 than they claim?

Yep, looks like MS jumped the gun.
