If you are a soccer fan and you love gaming,I hope that you have bought your PS3 and HDTV, gathered with your friends and share the joy of worshipping this piece of artifact from technology gods. PES 2008 is the field to beat out your friends and have your money's worth. If you learn some new soccer tricks I bet that it will double the joy of beating your friends. The real joy of gaming is doing those crazy soccer tricks that would be impossible to do in real life. (Unless you are Christiano Ronaldo or Rooney. Actually if you are Christiano Ronaldo or Rooney it would be very ironic that you can do those tricks actually in the soccer field but looking for help to do them on the game:)

PES 2008 is blended with a new feeling of game and there are a number of many more tricks and moves you can perform. I'll cut the talking now and here's the list of PES 2008 Tricks & Moves:

Drag Ball


Drag Ball Stepover

L1+R1 Then L1 2x

Drag Ball Into Stepover Dash

L1+R1 Then 2x L1+R1

Sidestep Stepover

Do a sidestep up/or/down+R2 then quickly press L1 x2

Crossing Stance

L1 then R1 x3

Look Up Cross

L1+R1 Then O

Nutmeg (This one is a lot of fun if you can control the ball)

While standing with R2, Press Back+R2 and Forward+R2 quickly.

Diving (This one is clearly cheating, but not in game sense. You try to cheat the referee and if you're lucky you will get away with a penalty if not you must face the yellow card)


Shirt Pull (The game's getting more and more dirty. Be sure that you are away from the referee and running just behind the other player to be able to pull his shirt)


Heel Dash (If you are controlling Cristiano Ronaldo why not have his skills. Only some players can perform those tricks)

R1+90 Degrees direction while running or trapping ball.

Go Around The Ball

While running hold L1 then tap quickly R1 x2

You can find a video of those new tricks below

Please comment if you know any other moves.
