EA's European boss Jens Uwe Intat is feeling confident about its FIFA franchise in its battle with Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer, saying it's a 'clearly superior' in this generation.
... Konami really dropped the ball ever since PES6 on the 360, and never picked it up again. FIFA is excellent the last couple of years. I played and loved Winning Eleven ever since I played the japanese import of the very first game on the SNES... and PES5 will always be in my heart... but ever since then, they just messed up big-time. That's not to say FIFA is perfect. It's not, and there's still stuff that PES does better and that FIFA needs to improve (character-editing, offline-replay saves instead of having to uploadit to the site, etc etc), but when it comes to pure gameplay and fun, FIFA is now king!
Fifa 11 is certainly impressive on many levels but 'clearly supérior' is false ...there is still some points were PES is supérior to fifa. IMO.
...that's what I said. Ofcourse there are still some things that PES still does better, but overal, FIFA is now the superiour football-game.
PES OWNS!!! Fifa is more realistic, but PES is definately the game you want to be playing when friends come over. PES gameplay rocks. Its much more fun than Fifa IMO. Fifa....pshhhh
Ill take great game mechs and realism of FIFA over PES anyday
I love it how PES can't get a single name correct... Flonaldo Scores !!! Got Fifa WC 2010 for $5 .. looking forward to 11
well, i don't belive this "king" part
Fun. Remember the penguin suits in PS2-era :) EDIT: Added the penguin man :)
It might have been the last couple of years but this year the king is back
i still prefer PES,the gameplay to me is much more satisfying,i agree though seabass has struggled badly to take the game to highier levels this generation like EA did with fifa.
hope the new keeper mode is good and does anyone know if in online clubs you use real players? hate having superstar created players vs 33 rated cb's.
yeah fifa over last couple years has been far superior but EA should respect the fact pes was the king of football games just 3 small years ago and they of all people should know how easily it can turn around in a football franchise as EA were 2nd best with fifa for many years before pes 2008 hit and ruined pes reputation imo its only the online in pes the last two years that has marked the pes franchise with a smudge mark , i really enjoyed gameplay in those games but when online is broken especially in a football game it doesnt feel the same.
PES2011 looks and moves so much better than Fifa2011. Fifa players moves like Playmobil toys. Just another hype-story to distract from PES2011
And the gap between the 2 games has only been getting wider. But this year it seems like PES has made some really good changes to their gameplay and graphics which will close the game between the games, I still feel FIFA 11 is going to be superior to PES once again.
to rule them all once more this year.
FIFA on Console is amazing but on PC PES is still the King
that an american publisher makes the best soccer game. it just doesnt make sense...
we all have 5 bubbles now. not too bad...not too bad at all :)
After seeing footage of the new pes, I tend to agree with EA here.. another awful year for pes ahead... the ball physics feel completely off.. the way they pass it reminds me of an old table top game called pro action football (sort of like a magnetic version of subuteo) only other way to describe it is that the ball moves around like a really heavy baloon. The other huge problem with it is the automatic running animations and how the ball seems magically stuck to the players foot. I've said it for the last two years now but fifa is three development years ahead of pes and with EA's resources, Konami just can't compete.
That is all. -End statement
