If you remain a loyal supporter of Pro Evolution Soccer, despite the fact that the franchise now plays second fiddle to FIFA, you’ll be wanting to know that the highly anticipated demo for PES 2013 arrives on the PS3 today.
The PES 2013 demo is already available for download on the Xbox 360 and PC via their respective stores, but now PS3 owners will be pleased to see that the demo is available for them as well. Depending on where you are located, the PlayStation Store update should be live now, meaning you can grab it from the store and start playing.
Unlike previous years though, there will be no UK or big European club teams to choose from. The demo instead offers countries this time around and rather bizarrely, a selection of Brazil’s finest club teams. The countries available in the demo include England, their Euro 2012 conquerors Italy, Germany and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal side.
The demo also contains a Copa Libertadores mode where you’ll find the Santos FC, SC International, Fluminense and Flamengo teams up for selection. This should interest a few hardcore fans out there as Brazilian wonder kid Neymar plays for Santos, so you can see what his stats are like in the demo before you pick up the full game.
Are you a bit surprised that the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City, Man Utd or Chelsea are not in this demo? Let us know if you have already tried it out on other platforms and are willing to pick the game up ahead of FIFA 13 this year. Somehow we have a feeling that FIFA is going to come out on top again.
