Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 to play catchup

Comments 1 Comment


2008 was the year that Pro Evolution Soccer finally gave up the crown as “best football game” to Fifa 09. In response to this, Konami today gave a glimpse of what to expect when Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 is released later this year.

I’ve personally been a massive fan of Konami’s series of Football games since they were on the original Playstation. Compared to Fifa, some 10 years ago, Pro Evolution Soccer offered a realism never before seen and while not as slick looking as Fifa the game played like a dream.

Sadly over the last few years, Pro Evolution Soccer had lost ground to Fifa, a game which was trying hard to emulate the way Pro Evolution Soccer played. Last year was an achievement for Fifa 09, finally being the better game of the two.

Konami themselves will be aware they need to make the changes and improvements to get Pro Evolution Soccer back as the number one football game.

To quote Konami

“We have been monitoring feedback and comments on the progression of the PES series for some time now, and PES 2010 will see us implementing a great deal of the ideas players have been requesting,” commented Naoya Hatsumi, Producer for PES Productions at Konami Digital Entertainment Japan. “We aim to make PES 2010 a more user-friendly, immediate experience that places the emphasis on getting straight into the gameplay for which the series is famed. PES 2010 will look better, will play better, and will recreate real football as closely as the current hardware will allow.”

“The preparations for PES 2010 have been in place for some time now, with the reorganization and increase of the Tokyo-based studio allowing expert teams to concentrate on their particular area,” commented Jon Murphy, PES European Team Leader. “We are now in a better position to implement the greatest raft of changes and improvements to the series we have seen, and thank the PES community for their input.”

    I hope Konami finally deliver something impressive this time round being quite un-impressed with recent releases. Konami have to be aware that they’re losing ground (and fans!!!). I’ve seen many a PES fan migrate to Fifa this year and if the PES developers don’t pull their finger out their market share will shrink at speed!
