Pro Evolution Soccer 10 has sold triple the amount of PS3 copies than 360 copies. The sales also edge out the likes of Uncharted 2 and Forza Motorsports.
So spin this Bots
LOL have fun playing PES. Everyone who has a brain knows FIFA 10 is better.
Which also sold more on PS3. Discuss.
That's really impressive considering there are more 360 owners than PS3 owners. I hope this trend continues.
But when a game like Borderlands or Beyonetta (im sick of hearin about that game) sells better on the 360 rather then the Ps3 the news reaches 700+ degrees and u gotta put up with comments like "hahahahaha the Ps3 sucks no1 buys games 4 it just bluray movies" Not interested in Pro-Evo (or Fifa)
call of duty MW2 triple on 360 than ps3 =)
maybe there's a correlation here..... PS owners aren't necessarily into FPS style games, but 360 owners are. Just like how it seems 360 owners aren't really into JRPGs, but PS owners are well expecting them and enjoying some. I'd reckon that a soccer sport game with such a global audience would definitely sell extremely well, especially on the PS platform, considering PES has been on the Sony platform for ages. Heck, it's an amazingly popular title in Asia and also lots of fans in Europe. My cousin just doesn't stop babbling on and on about PES2010, and how much he wants to challenge me barcelona vs liverpool. He picked up a PS3 today just FOR PES2010.
I laughed at the disagree, either someone doesn't find it impressive or someone doesn't want the trend to continue...ah fanboys.
I Liked ProEvo2010 better then Fifa10, also ProEvo has always been a Playstation Game.
panda is right.
"considering there are more 360 owners than PS3 owners" -> in USA PES is associated as a Playstation game
Kutaragi's going to lay the smackdown on jabroni's candy a$$es :P But seriously I thought Fifa was more in demand compared to PES, yeah there are gamers who prefer PES over Fifa but a majority of gamers play and buy Fifa.
@1.10 - No, Pro Evo has always been the more preferred series for Soccer fans. Fifa always does good numbers, but Pro Evo has a more cult following.
I'm surprised at the continued brand loyalty to PES. The franchise has been nothing but mediorce the last 3 entries in the franchise.
who cares about sales
hellsvacancy see what media did to you?you think that bayoneta x360 has sold more than ps3 version.probably because you saw an article "bayonetta x360 sell out?".the truth is: PS3 version-93,000 x360 version-45,000
As much as I love PES (I really, REALLY do), how the heck did it outsell Uncharted 2? Maybe the pertinent question is WHY did it sell more than Uncharted 2? People need to have a serious look at themselves. I wouldn't usually mind but imagine if PES2010 had actually been GOOD this year. I know us Europeans love football but do we love it more than one of the defining games of this generation? C'MON!
because football games are the sort of games that people who don't usually game buy. last year at uni a mate of mine had a ps2 but the only game he bought was pro every year.
PES 2010 is amazing! I tried the demo and haven't stopped playing it since, it does EVERYTHING better than FIFA. In fact PES's HD graphics make FIFA 10 look like a last gen title. Not to mention it has ALWAYS had more fluid and responsive controls. This will be the real coming out party for PES on the playstation platform.
I see what you're saying and the statistics DO back you up, but I buy PES every year (lately in hope more than anything else) and it's the only sports game I've ever bought in the last 6-7 years. My other purchases throughout the year are the top exclusives for the console I have, as well as any appealing multi-platform titles that I like the look of. I'm baffled with people who only buy one game a year and that game is either FIFA or PES - they're missing out on so many other great games! It's their choice of course, but there comes a time when we must expand our horizons. As much as I've adored PES over the years, I'd go crazy if it's the only game I could play until the next PES is released the following year.
Well football game in UK , france , spain , italy are BIG BIG franchises don't underestimate them ... it's not a surprise really .. Madden would had no problem to outsell uncharted 2 in USA ... Same here in europe ... but for "football"-"soc cer for us" ...
am still wondering which one to buy for my PS3... PES (because i am a PES fan) or FIFA. sigh...
download the demo and see for your self, I did and I'm going for PES.
i did download both... am playing only PES demo regularly... don't know. it just feels right. he he... i did play FIFA10 demo too before the PES10 demo got released. i don't know.. i just don't feel like playing it though FIFA is damn smooth. plus, what i want to know is if Konami has fixed the online issues... no one seems to be reviewing that part.
IT SUCKS. I'll be getting ProEvo for sure. I just wanted to see what all the fifa craze was about. All hype no deliver.
Funny thing is the demo isnt even that great , it gives a good feel of a few things like the new graphics ... but the full game is much much better in gameplay and time response .
I'd say Fifa, but you can't really go wrong on either game.
Wow don't they know that FIFA10 is like the best soccer game ever? Why are they picking up this garbage?
http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... Why do you continue to do it?
Because reaper, he didn't learn the first time...
wow buddy, you sure don't know how big Winning 11 / PES is.
Don't pretend you know/care about football.
What? All I said is why are you guys buying PES10 over a better game in Fifa. Wow. So defensive. Beardpapa, I guess I don't. I played PES09 and thought it was crap compared to Fifa. And the new FIFA10 is the best FIFA of all. Don't know why anybody would choose PES over Fifa. LOL, dude you know me that well that I don't know soccer? HAHA, I own 10 soccer trophies with a few MVP's son.
right cause anyone with "soccer" trophies uses slang terms like "son". nice try ghetto crickett
Awards you received at the special Olympics don't count.
lol... anyway.. there are pretty big numbers of PES fans. the franchise has been there for a very long time... i know FIFA is now the new kid in the block but PES does play right where it matters - on the ground. that could be reason why people are still buying PES. it's a personal choice, that's all.
Let me guess Halo is best FPS Game Ever right??
You guys should save your energy and not reply to anything Halo3MLG says.
Whaooooo! Someone stole my avatar.
Meh imo Fifa10 is hardly the best soccer game ever . It's a good effort from EA since 09 , but very shallow , especially this year . So what if Fifa had style , presentation , more animation and , licences and a great online in 09 and keeps adding to in 10 ? The core of the game , the gameplay is isnt good enough imo . Wanna why we picked pes this year ? Well because PES caught in most of those superficial aspects ... Slick and easy to navigate presentation with good music ? Check Robust and good online ? Check New animations ? Check Truly next gen graphics and engine ? Check The only edge now left with fifa are the fact that still fifa got more animations and the licenses . One of them , the licences , becomes imediately irrelevant when you dont have to actually pay for actualized transferts , and can instead download some custom and amateur patches . On the other hand despite already having licensing rights , EA still tries bleeding people dry with no access to mods , and with paid dlcs for transferts . And just like with fifa 09 , when May ends , they'll stop updating transferts and leave you on your own to edit manually the game (with a crappy editor to boot) until the next game . So basically you'll be left dry and hanging for many month , a whole summer just so they have an excuse to sell fifa 11 . As for the animation , well it would be nice to have as many as fifa , but pes10 is already miles ahead of shoddy past two iteration .. so it's good enough . In the end , all i can see when looking at PES instead , is a still superior , and this year vastly improved gameplay (partially thanks to fifa and it's great sliders idea) , with still superior and improved career and manager modes , and with all if not most of it's actual flaws fixed . While on the other hand , fifa is still fifa , improving each year in every area except the one that bothers me .
I was actually offended by the PES demo though it was a discrace to football. Had to get fifa so much better!!!!!
nix - actually PES is the new kid, PES was first released in 2001, I remember playing Fifa on my Genesis more then 10 years ago. I've played both the PES series and the Fifa series a lot and though I prefer Fifa, I think PES games are really great too. It just comes down to opinions, something that people don't get, like PES fans saying Fifa sucks and vice versa.
Check "International super star soccer " in 1996 .. that's the first PES i know .. they changed the name but still . I think PES is when they decided to introduce the database system for listing every characteristic of the players .. And still might i be wrong ( since i'm not sure ) PEs is hardly a new challenger in the Soccer games ...
Redempteur - According to Wikipedia (yay!) Fifa dates back to 93'. You're right, it was idiotic of me to call PES a new challenger it's more of an old opponent to the Fifa series. Oh well, they're both pretty epic anyways.
this make sense. microsoft fanboys dont like games outside of shooters
Great photo to introduce the article, The mophead dismissing Chimney as per usual. Speed demon and vieri lurking in the background
It edged out Uncharted 2, as this was PESs first week and U2s second. PES is also 'traditionally' more of a PS franchise, as it's always been on a PlayStation since its ISS days (and obviously built up a fan base, myself included), but has been more sparodic on other platforms - NOTE. That is just an observation, nothing more.
Not up to date to the install base in Europe but ps3 seems to have an edge over the xbox 360 in Europe. Also some friends of mine (in europe) bought their ps3 slim just to play Pes.
it's all about those option files on the PS3, my friend.
Thats the only reason why it's selling more on ps3. The fact tha game is released with false player names, false kits, false badges and can only be done by installing an option file on the ps3/pc version.It looks good but the players movement is so last gen. Look at the legs when they are running, looks like a benny hill tape. While fifa has improved over the years pes has stood still. Reviews everywhere give fifa 10 9/10 and pes is lucky to get a 6/10..........and i'd agree with them for a change.
FIFA 10 and PES2010 is selling like hot cakes here in Europe.
I can see playing sales is fun. People here do it all the time so it must be. It's not for me though. I play video games, not sales. I'm strange like that.

Lol no wonder you guys are demoted to the open zone.
its happened with Batman: AA, Fifa 10, NFS:SHIFT, and now PES 10?....multiplats are becoming a problem of the past =)
OWNED owned himself
the biggest problem people are faceing is what to do with their xbox stuff. i say keep it you'll always want to play atleast one of their games.
[email protected]!# Too bad some people have trouble grasping this simple concept.
europe love soccer...and people from Spain, Germany and France..pick up the Ps game version....all the time but if this data sales are only from Usa....That's really impressive
360 Sells more FPS and WRPG's, PS3 sells more Soccer and JRPG's. Explains why the 360 is popular in the U.S, and PS3 in Japan for example. Europe is more complicated and more of a mix.
Europe = Soccer and Gran Turismo's turf
360 owners just have more options atm. Well it worked for Ps3 owners yesterday. Why not 360 owners today. Truth is its acceptable with 360. They at least have the software numbers to back up that claim
not surprising, since you rarely do.
maybe microsoft's numbers are just inflated with people rebuying systems from rrod? I don't know how you conclude there's more active gamers on 360 in europe than ps3 looking at these numbers.
the xbox360 has other games thats y they dont care about pes.im selling my ps3 and geting an xbox360 anyway.something i should have done a lone time ago.
Do both systems has 2 soccer games? *check* Do PS3 have atleast three arguably AAA quality games (R&C, Uncharted 2, Demons Soul) coming out in the same month? *check* The PS3 has games too so your reasoning is flawed. And looking at your postal history, you just created a new account. You should have just stuck to your other troll account.
pure ignorance (he probably never had a ps3) or ms employee at office.
