With a change in name to eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2020, PES is preparing for its yearly September battle with FIFA.
Nope. FIFA is too big, a Name change wont change anything. People are already hooked on their Ultimate Team.
Not for me. Until PES gets Bundesliga I'm not even playing it.
If you're on PS4 or PC, you can simply download and install an Option File, and you'll have the Bundesliga, along with all the other big official leagues you would want.
@Jay then why do you buy an EA game? They're notorious for locking away half the game and charging for it.
Thats unfortunate because PES as a Football game is better than FIFA
Am serious here, I left PES in 2011. At that time, FIFA is innovation and PES was just running and fast ball. What the points making PES better? And since when?
@InKnight7s I think many people left PES in that period, and that's because it just wasn't that good anymore, compared to PES4 & 5. PES really struggled that generation (PS3/XBOX360), and at the same time, FIFA had really improved and simply was the better game on the market (FIFA08 until (roughly) FIFA15 were simply better games than PES). These past few years though, FIFA has really stalled, while PES has gone back to form. PES2017,18, 19 were all fantastic, and while personally I have some doubts about the PES2020 demo, many seem to really love it ... There's a demo in the store right now. Give it a chance.
Don't get me wrong. I like the gameplay of PES. The official license issue gets me though.
Nope. EA has a stranglehold on Soccer. No other soccer game sales anywhere near FIFA levels. Sega and Konami are just kinda there.
Not sales whise,.. PES was always a better footbal game though (even the half assed ones, just play and feel better)
PES has the better gameplay and graphics, but everything else, including brand-recognition, licensing, content and marketing, still falls heavily in favor of FIFA. Both series have been good these past few years though, with personal preferences determining which someone will buy.
Metacritic - Yes Sales - No
PES is better than FIFA. The only thing FIFA has over PES are the licenses and unfortunately those that are gripped in the Jedi mind trick of MTs and Loot bo..... I mean "surprise mechanics" will never ditch FIFA for a superior product.
I have no doubt that PES 2020 is the best football game ever made. It tops anything we have seen previously in football simulators.
Not gonna happen
In terms of gameplay PES always beats FIFA. But when it comes to sales no doubt FIFA will always come out on top.
