Two new 360 controllers?
The producer of Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer series claims he's received a pair of new 360 controllers from Microsoft. Speaking with CVG, Shingo Takatsuka says he was given the controllers in order to test remapped button configurations for PES. In the past, the series has supposedly played better with Sony's Dual Shock controllers. Could one of Takatsuka's controllers be the rumoured FPS gamepad? It's possible, but it's also doubtful that streamlined FPS controls would mesh well with the isometric gameplay of PES. It could be that both or neither of the new controllers will see the light of day. PES 6 (a.k.a. Winning Eleven 2007) should ship in January.
