3DS Game Advertises PlayStation 3

Realism win, promotional fail.

Some rather amusing screenshots have emerged of Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 on the newly launched 3DS. See if you can spot the ‘own goal’ or, to be more topical, the ‘elbow to the face’.

      If the PES developers want to have Champ League license they have to include the major sponsors ( sony included). Nintendo can’t control that and neither can Konami. Its a contractual obligation between Sony and Uefa, who sell the champ league license to konami for PES.

    Very cool to see that Nintendo aren’t being overly controlling on third party content.

    i knew it would be a football game, something similar happened with the xbox fifa game last year didn’t it?

    it’s because so sponsor the champions league.

    and this being a konami game and not nintendo they won’t care about the sponsor being sony, they’ll just faithfully recreate the stadiums and advertisments, sony ads and all.

    still funny to see though, what would have been funnier is if they were psp ads. ^_^

      but sega don’t make a console in competition with the ps3.

      i don’t suppose sony minded as sega produce software for the playstation brand consoles.

    Good on them for not interfering with realism for something silly like that.

    It bugs me a bit that the old race cars in GT5 have the cigarette advertising removed but I suppose that’s not really down to them anyway.

    Nintendo do not have a choice in it as sony sponsors champions league, but still funny
