PES 2014 online issues: Konami “working closely” with Microsoft to fix Xbox 360 play

PES 2014 ran into technical issues when it launched last month, and it seems that most of the problems stem from its online play. On Xbox 360, Konami has said it is “working closely” with Microsoft to resolved the bugs.

Eurogamer received word from Konami on the matter this morning, and it was confirmed that trouble arises when players try to install Data Pack 1.00, which is needed to run the game’s multiplayer. After patch 1.01, players have found that the data pack will download up to 50% and then stall, along with an error message that reads, “Download File is Broken.”

Konami said it was “working closely” with Microsoft to fix the problem, and in a statement Konami Digital Entertainment President Shinji Hirano said, “We would like to apologise to any users who have been unable to enjoy PES2014 online and would like to reassure fans we’ll be fixing the issue as quickly as possible.

“In the meantime we’re setting up a special section on the PES 2014 site to keep users up to date on issues, feedback and general help with the product. Our customer support team is also providing as much personal support as possible.”
