PES is dying

Sorry if the title seems a bit OTT but the facts don't lie.

http://winningelevenblog.com/blog/pes-year-on-year-sales-down-by-1-8-million-units/

Continuing the worrying trend since 2008. This year however has seen the biggest slump in PES sales ever recorded. Down almost 2,000,000 on PES/WE 13.

PES 14 has been nothing short of a disaster for an already ailing franchise.

These sales figures will simply lead to less investment and less budgets by Konami - the cut backs are already very evident in PES 14.

These figures also don't consider people (like me) who bought PES 14 without knowing what horrors awaited, the fact is customers are now going to be even more dubious about buying PES 15 - and for good reasons.

The end is nigh it seems :(

It is happening again
Also.

This forum is so quiet nowadays. Nobody comments on threads any more.

Looks like everyone who cared about PES has left too.

So sad. What's happened to our game :(

It tends to get busy when a new game comes out, then everyone stops posting when they realise how shit it is.

Not played the full game tbh but thought PES2014 demo was ok, not better than 2012 or 2013 tho.

Nope. I still think the game is class. I couldn't be bothered posting anymore because its only ever met with negativity. That is fair enough if people feel that way but, there are only so many times you'll repeat the same things again and again defending why you think the game is good before you get thoroughly bored in posting anything. I think other people who like the game are in the same position as me.

It's also not surprising the majority of people who don't like the game are PS3 players, as it still seems from reading forums to have response issues and the vast majority of people who buy the game are PS3 players.

Most of my friends switched fully to FIFA years ago, I play both as Ultimate team is very addictive and so is Master League.

It's going to be real interesting to see what pes 2015 has in store for us. If it's a flop like 2014, than yes, Pes will probably be no more.

I played quite a bit of PES 2013 over the weekend, didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped. Strange AI on occasions, made me feel like I was not always in control of my players. I wouldn't be against trying PES 2014, but if I had similar issues with that, it probably would stop playing the game entirely in the future.

We've been telling Konami what is wrong with PES for YEARS and they haven't listened to a word we've said so why does anyone think they're going to start listening now?

The people in charge of PES are utterly clueless, directionless and appear to have not one decent idea in their thick skulls for taking PES forward. We ask for a decent football game and they give us shit like "heart" and magic boots. I mean who the fuck are these people? Have they ever actually played football or even watched a game?

It's a sad day when you realise that the game you used to love is actually driving more and more people towards FIFA rather than keeping them away from it like it used to. Once people switch loyalty to another brand it becomes very difficult to get them back yet the PES team are more or less herding people towards the FIFA games with their bungling idiocy.
People are now going back to PES 2013 and saying it's brilliant but it's shit, it's just slightly less shit than PES 2014 is and in the absence of any other football games and a hatred for all things FIFA some people are willing to accept that as being enough.

The amount of patching and editing and code tweaking that has to be done just to make every single PES game halfway playable is ridiculous and the worst part is Konami dont even do most of it, WE, THE CUSTOMER, have to do it ourselves! This isnt flat pack furniture FFS! It's a game that scores of highly paid, supposedly highly skilled, people have worked on for YEARS and they still cannot get the basics right or even produce a finished product! What other product or company would you, as a paying customer, accept that from and keep going back for more?

I think Konami have been slowly signing the PES death warrant with their rank incompetence/indifference since 2008.

I would like to know - who is responsible for saying 'Yeah I've tested it and it's perfect - let's release it'

Or who the morons are that tested it for them and didn't scream 'My players aren't doing what I'm telling them to do in an adequate time-scale etc...'

or 'this scripted cheating stuff is horrible turn it off'

i said to myself I will stick with PES2013 because I didn't like all the glitches on 2014 but recently I've stoped playing it all together. Just feels so outdated now, just lost that magic, not fun anymore. I wonder if this new 1.7 patch for 2014 would lure me to get that game, but I don't feel like getting dissapointed. I will probably just wait to see how next gen PES looks like this fall. (not holding my breath)

Pes 2013 was awesome, pes 2012 was terrible.
Pes 2011 was not very good but it was ok.
Pes 2014 is disaster and i stopped playing...

I still like 2014 and even a FIFA friend switched over to PES for this year.
It might die but even a die hard FIFA fan or Konami hater shouldn`t hope for this cause that would mean EA could do what they want and they are not known for being customer friendly.

Konami has no feedback. Actually, they never care about it. They did what they want all the time never listening the fans. They took off a lot of details the fans love, the new things brought the game to down. They have not evolved.

PES has lost them identity. They care so much about FIFA and not about PES's fans. Year by year disappointing fans with lies, with a poor fans channel to say what is true and what is fake about the news...

PES is dying cause they deserve it. Its producers know nothing about football and this is a disaster when you try to be in this world. I have no expectation about PES 2015, I'm not playing 2014 and probably never will play again after the last time on last December.

It hurts to say that but only a miracle make me play PES again.

PES 2014 is crap, I have it on PC, runs nice and smooth but the collision detection and other problems just makes it unplayable. Each patch has done nothing.

To be fair I think the new FIFA is even worse, what a pile of shit that game is, played it this weekend at my mates, they all love it but it feels so arcade like its unreal. At least PES is trying to look real! In doing so the gameplay is unfun though.

First time since 96 ive not played a football game. Shit :(
