We have known for years about the stiff rivalry between the FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) that translates to every football season where they will release new version of their series.
But recently, it seems that it has been won by FIFA after several stellar success in gameplay compared to the lackluster performance we received in PES for the past few games. What about the all new PES 2012? Will it have what it takes to take down FIFA 12 as a dominant force in soccer gaming?
Firstly, what the new PES can be proud about is the fact that the graphic is much better in the game, if we want to compare it to the FIFA series. Such texture and the prowess on each of the players face can only be found in PES 2012. These few screenshots below are example of those where it showcase Portugal (featuring their cover boy, Cristiano Ronaldo), England, Germany and Brazilian based club Santos.
One thing that PES fans want to improve on their franchise is the sleek passing, and the overall gameplay where FIFA 12 looks to be the clear winner in this area.
PES 2012 is scheduled to be release for PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360 on September 27th, and KONAMI recently announced that the PSP®, PlayStation®2 and Wii™ versions will follow on November 8th. The publisher has also confirmed that versions for Nintendo 3DS and iOS formats are also in development, with the release dates to follow.
