New PES 2013 demo to prize away FIFA 13 fans

By Alan Ng - Aug 23, 2012

If you are still on the fence as to whether to pick up FIFA 13 or PES 2013 for this year’s football season, Konami has stepped in with a rather sneaky tactic. Despite already releasing a demo for PES 2013, the developer will be releasing a second taste of the game in an attempt to prize those who may have become tempted by recent media unveils for EA’s game.

We told you at the end of last month, that the first PES demo had arrived on Xbox 360 and PS3. However, some of you may have been disappointed with the lack of Premiership teams on show, as the demo only included countries and Brazilian teams and not some of your well known favorites that were included on previous PES demos.

Konami is putting things right though with their second demo, as they’ve announced that 11 fully licensed teams will feature in the demo and although they haven’t mentioned which ones are coming, we’re guessing that one or two Premiership teams will now be available for preview at last.

The new demo will also include some gameplay improvements as well, as Konami has said that pass targeting, trajectory, shot speed, blocking actions and referee AI have all been enhanced from the first demo. If you’re interested in picking this up, it will be available to download for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on August 28th.

Unfortunately, PC owners are going to have to wait a little while longer as Konami couldn’t give a specific date yet, only revealing that it will be out sometime in September. Are you still deciding which game to pick up between the two? If so, tell us what teams you would like to see in the second demo.

    If only PES had beter movement it does feel and look robotic but other then that the game has lots of nice features even allowing you to decide which direction your team mate is going to for a run I hope they improve their movement with PES 14 and then it might be better then FIFA

  • I believe the title should be “prise away” to ‘prize away’ would be a non-sensical sentence relating, I imagine, to removing a hypothetical prize the hypothetical players had won in a fictitious competition.
