    Taken straight from the manual:

    Divisions:
    There are 5 divisions and you start from Amateur. Earn points by playing matches against other players via xbox live and fight for spots in higher divisions. Your division will be renewed periodically, based upon your ranking among all players



    Once again the manual has been written by a asian person who speaks 3 words of english, but you get the jist of it

    Snoop Dogg at 10 in the morning eh, Pooon... What a rocknroll lifestyle you lead :rolleyes:

    Any other bits in the manual that sound good? (is it online to download, or do you have your copy already?)

    I have my copy already(you and cas know what i mean by that)
    Another thing mentioned in the manual is Co-op play on live!!! so you can have games of 4 human controlled players over live

    There is also now a set of coloured icon in the menu to tell you if there should be any lag or not(red, amber, green]

    Further Division info:
    If there has been any movement in your division since last logging in, the division renewal screen will be displayed once only. Divisions shall in principle be renewed once a week. Then teh promotion or relegation screen shall display your current ranking and division. Regardless of your results, you will remain in the Amateur league until you have played 20 matches

    Sounds great - have heard that it is 2 v 2 on 2 Xboxes only though. So 2 players play as the home team on 1 Xbox etc!

    If I try hard enough ( I have to really try though by thinking back over all of those lovely PGR3 shots and movies) I can almost start to understand where you may be coming from...BUT PES is the entire reason that games consoles exist for! Hmmm I sense that i'm going off on one!

    Infact i'm sure that secretly that when Pong was created it was infact Ralph H. Baer who had a copy of PES and was trying to make a console that could run it! Sadly he didn't quite make it at that stage but instead he created video games, so not all was lost! :D

    Now thanks to PES/Winning Eleven the period (known as the Heavenly Pes Period) of August to October has become one of the greatest times of the year! Not only are we provided with Winning Eleven on the PS2 in August (the only reason why I have something resembling a fan heater stood on it's side on my gaming rack) but then we get the X-Box version of PES in the October with the hope of continually better online play. We all get excited in the build up to August to see if Konami has finally got off it's arse and put a widescreen mode in, only to be sadly let down as the traditional 4:3 square pops up on the PJ screen. But then we sit back and enjoy the next greatest episode in gaming!

    Remeber folks! PES is for life, a new console generation a mere 5 or so years! :smashin:

    Sorry, I know, but credit should go where it's due in my book. I guess Bushnell was the guy who took the idea and made a success from it, but it was Baer's baby.

    It's similar to the Tetris story with the bloke in Russia who invented it (name has gone for now) and ended up getting hardly any money from what was one of the best selling games ever.

    :D Good, Good...we can't be having you unexcited about your pending copy of PES5, that just wouldn't do! ;)

    "Ok, I actually do have this and here are some answers:


    1) It is live aware when playing master league games, you basically sign in the same as other games.

    2) There is 2 Vs 2 Live Co-Op (2 on same xbox)

    3) The lag can be easily countered as there is now a 'ping' checker, so you can see good connections before playing. If its green, it mean's there's a good connection and most likely no lag, if its any other colour, there might be slight lag. "

    Quoted from xbox.com.

    Im gutted about the 2v2 thing thats utter ******, i know what everyone is going to say, about lag etc but whats the point in it if you have to have someone else at your xbox????
