Fifa 15 vs Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 Preview: Gamescom Comparison [IBTimes UK]

Ten years ago, Fifa and Pro Evolution Soccer's rivalry hit the dizzy heights among gaming's greatest. During the last console cycle, however, Konami and PES lost their way, leaving Fifa to overtake and far exceed the quality and success of its adversary.

With little rivalry in terms of sales, Fifa flourished where once PES and its near-perfect gameplay was the more popular title. Back then, the allure of licensed players, clubs and stadia simply wasn't enough in the face of PES's exceptional gameplay.

Eventually Fifa worked its way to the top, backing up its realism with great gameplay as PES struggled to find a foothold on the new systems. By the end of the console cycle, it had found its old form but Fifa's sales were insurmountable.

This year, both series will occupy the same next-gen consoles for the first time and I was lucky enough to play them at this year's Gamescom in Germany. Here's what I thought... (EA, FIFA 15, gamescom, Pro Evolution Soccer 2015, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)
