A new interview with Konami’s European brand boss Adam Bhatti talks about the past, present and future of Pro Evolution Soccer, and its continual clash with FIFA.
the more i play fifa the less i want it.. PES is the real deal this year From a FIFA fan since FIFA10.
This year PES improved while FIFA made a step back, me and my friends enjoyed the PES15 demo much more than the FIFA15 demo, we're still playing it regularly.
It won't beat FIFA, simply because FIFA has the licenses, the marketing, years of experience of being the better game (ever since FIFA09), etc etc... I do know that this year's FIFA15 isn't as good as FIFA14, and that the demo for PES2015 was definitely a step back in the right direction. Will probably sell my FIFA15 and play FIFA14 again, TBH.
Until Konami get the official licensing for the major leagues so they can use the player names, 99% of football fans will opt for Fifa.
Which is the sad truth. I'm playing games for the fun, not for the license... and FIFA is not fun to me. I could write a blog about everything that's wrong with this game but I'll just say EA.
If it's that important to your you can go and edit the players names and team emblems. Besides that, gameplay is much more important to me. I'm excited to see how konami's player ID pans out
thats the nail in the coffin im afraid. with a game like football its a huge factor imo. but i did prefer fifa 15 to pes 15 demo and im enjoying fifa 15 full retail,im fed up of repeated commontator dribble though
The generic jerseys that I've seen for the premier league look fine on PES. Gameplay is infinitely better than fifa this year.
I played the pes demo...and its not better than fifa ....
man if pes had the license...PES 15 has better gameplay and gfx
PES doesn't have to "beat Fifa " imo. It just has to be a good fun game in its own right, just like fifa is fun.
100% agree I'll trade Fifa 15 in when Pes2015 comes out i don't care about license or whatever PES is more fun IMO
i think no one , i mean pes eithet fifa has the potential for next gent on this generatstion console
I believe this year PES is the better game than FIFA. played both the demos and i definitely had more fun with PES than FIFA. They reall seem to correct the mistakes they had with PES2014. FIFA from 09-12 was really good and did play very well but in recent years i think they are slipping away. One of the things saving the FIFA franchise i have to say is the licenses.
Pes won't be able to compete with fifa sales this year, but they will improve upon previous few years pes, and build on it. I'll get pes this year myself.
Honestly, I don't think PES will really EVER approach the sales that FIFA does. FIFA is the CoD of sports games. It's popularity is almost unrivaled. That being said, PES should be able to garner an increase in it's own sales (maybe some dual purchases) so that it can continue to be competitive. PES has been steadily building in the right direction (despite PES 14 being a step back) since PES 13. I usually use the demo to decide which game to get. This year...it's PES 15. It's just a more patient, thought out version of football. Sure, you can push the pace. But, you will get exposed by a good team with counters. (which is to be expected). It is just a really solid version of football and fun for a different reason than FIFA.
