The last few days have been very strange. It seems PES 2013 is generating some serious buzz. There is no doubting from the demo build, PES 2013 is a better game, the overall feel of the game is very different. I think most people will be surprised. The thing about it, is it enough to gain (and most importantly regain) fans from FIFA. Konami are letting the battle of the casual market go and finally concentrating on the hardcore football market. They are even tinkering with the idea of making PES 2014 fully manual.
The big question is whether football gamers will play the best game come this September/October. Thats more important than anything. Sales don’t equal the best game. I always said I would never buy the inferior football game and I don’t think I have been all these years. Blind loyalty is a stupid notion. I loved FIFA 10 but since that, I think FIFA have dropped the ball. PES 2010 started this new resurgance and PES 2013 will be the perfect finale for this gen of consoles.
The question remains: Which game will you play?
