    Which is better?

    Released Tomorrow mate. £25 is a good price. Saying that I think Konami owe that to their fans after last years installment.

    Fifa 09 is actually a fantastic game and find it more in depth than pes 2008 which i only ever played online

    forgot to say - looking at PS3

    So are Morrisons going to be £25 or is it bollox

    I got both - pes hands down with ease, love the one touch passes - really intuitive. Also Pes's Legend mode(which I like) outdoes Fifa's pro-mode in game play terms too.

    Always find Fifa much more random, like a game of basketball. Pes ebb's and flows like the beautiful game itself should:thumbsup:

    Fifa all the way, PES sucks

    Fifa 09 Is great offline and online.

    PES is good offline but still shockingly bad online.

    My money went to FIFA this year (First time is ages)

    i find fifa is more community based - ive made loads of friends playing in leagues and doing 10v10 online - just need a xbox sub so i can play again

    You can download both demos from PSN/Live.
    I opted for Fifa after realising that anything more than a tap of the shoot button in PES results in the ball balloning over the bar. Fifa hasn't dissapointed in the week I've been playing it.
    Now go and decide for yourself.

    It's all part of the subtlety that makes this game. Easy to pick up and difficult to master.

    If you like a easy to score game with high scores then perhaps FIFA is better for you.

    I see PES as a game for the diehards and for those who prefer the subtlety of the beautiful game which casuals will not understand. :thumbsup:

    Fifa is not easy to score in HELL NO - its impossible you really have to learn how to shoot - no 35 yard jammy goals

    I was pes only from pes 4 to pes 2008 but not anymore looks like i will be fifa 09 only until i try pes 2009 actual game
    pes isnt hard to master at all - what i hated most about pes is you could be trashed like 5-0 when you are playing awesome as the goals are too easy to score -Pes is a pick up and play game

    Quite the opposite IMO, Yes I sometimes manage to win by an high margin on Fifa 09 but I've only very rarely scored from out the box and it is more challenging than PES.

    PES is far to easy in one player mode, PES is great for playing against friends at home but doesn't really offer much realism.

    PES would make a great arcade game, But Fifa offers a lot more in terms of Game play, Realism, Online play etc

    im undecided between the 2. But slightly edging for PES as thats what I am used to.

    Do the online demos give a realistic experience of each game? Thinking of downloading the demo's before taking the plunge.

    Supposedly not.

    PES is supposed to be better than the demo (demo is the worst I have ever played).

    Fifa demo is good, but still improved for the full game.

    Close enough I'm sure. As you can see there's no clear cut reason to choose one over the other so download the demos and make your own mind up.

    The players on the PES demo feel really heavy and stutter when running. When you kick a ball it sounds like a Nike Sumo Driver hitting a Golf ball. The full game has to of changed from that :? ?

    my thinking was visit Morrisons tomorrow and pick up PES for £25 (if its true!) as i missed the deal on FIFA.

    Never really played either before to be honest

    I played both versions of pes last night, both are probably better than the demos oddly - I found the demos a bit shaky at times.

    On the online issue - even the best service(xbox live) is still dreadful.

    I beat a guy 6-0 England Vs France(me as England) which might of been cos I'm good, but he claimed it was the lag that did it to him in a message he sent me after.

    The graphics were tearing/glitching alot - and players/the ball were teleporting badly at stages of the game.

    I have PS3, if you have FIFA08, then may wonder why get FIFA 09

    PES2009

    Why get PES2009, its just a game Football Game, it isnt about graphics, or how many real teams have signed, its about great Gameplay. Buy Both

    FYI: A comment I originally posted at ThreeSpeech.com in the "]PES ‘09 Vs FIFA ‘09" blog entry...

    ---
    I'm not a fan of Sports game titles, and certainly not football ones (as I don't like the physical game... and no, I'm not some kind of girl or something... I prefer martial arts), but this aside...

    I have to admire the way in which the "PES 2009" playable demo is going to be available on the PlayStation Store a day before "FIFA 09" is available to buy commercially (but three weeks after the playable demo of this title was available to download).

    Such a move must have really wound-up EA, as there is now a possibility that potential buyers will wait to see what the latest "Pro Evolution Soccer" title has to offer before committing to purchasing the "FIFA" annual instalment.

    "FIFA 09" will almost certainly go to the top of the multi-format charts, but may soon lose out to the later arrival (on 17 October 2008).

    Assuming, of course, that soccer fans have not had this year's release on pre-order for almost 12 months anyway.

    Am I right in thinking that last year's "PES" offering was hampered by online glitches, and the comparative "FIFA" release was the player everybody played in preference?

    On the subject of annual updates, is it the case that unless you're a fan of a particular Basketball, Rugby, Hockey, Football, etc. team then each yearly revision is just the same game as last year with more bugs removed, a different line-up of (current season) player characters & a price-hike?

    With the advent of "in-game custom soundtracks" supported by both the Xbox 360 & PS3 consoles, I would also have thought that the attraction of a new set of tracks with the latest FIFA title would not be a selling point.

    Integration with the Sony "SingStar Store" or the Microsoft "Lips" online download service would be a smart move for the consumer, but this doesn't seem to have been supported (probably for financial reasons so that next year "FIFA [Now... That's What I Call Music] 10" can be released with a completely different soundtrack).

    (A wide generalisation that I'm sure somebody with any interest in football titles will correct me on).


    BTW, have you ]heard that Peter Moore (President of EA Sports) is planning to make EA Sports "the leading sports brand"... even bigger than sportswear organisations like Adidas & Nike?

    I dunno... you get your face in one (critically floored & counted out) boxing game... and you think you can break the sportswear world!

    David Rutter, the producer of "FIFA 09", has gone on record to say that there will be "250 key additions and improvements", including 15 new stadiums, the ability to switch weather (such as rain) 'on' or 'off' prior to a game, the time a match starts (so that you may end up playing in daytime, dusk, or night time lighting), and that the PS3 version of the title will have an exclusive game mode.

    The Wii version will be titled "FIFA 09 All-Play", and will include a new 8 versus 8 match line-up ("Footii Match") as well as the typical 11-a-side set-up.

    PSP & Nintendo DS versions are also planned together with the Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, and Mobile editions.

    The European release date, as I am sure you know, is currently set as 3 October 2008.

    North American territories will see the title hitting the shelves on 14 October 2008... there's a first huh? A game developed by EA Canada, but released in the UK first! The latest “PES” release for the same region, developed by Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo, is due to be released on 12 November 2008.

    At the Leipzig Games Convention on 20 August this year, it was announced that the PS3 version of "FIFA 09" would include the ability to record foot(ball)age of in-game play ready for uploading the resultant video file to YouTube.com directly without leaving the game.

    Already rumoured prior to then, and also confirmed at the conference, was that "FIFA 09" will include a "Live Season" feature (possibly with the prefix of "adidas" [all day I dream about soccer?] that monitors & adjusts the performance of all players in the in-game leagues against the real world FIFA database, meaning that if the actual players are having a particular good (or particularly poor) season then their in-game statistics & on-screen performance will be adjusted to, erm, match.

    This feature is dubbed as a new "premium service" (translation: 'at extra cost' maybe?) & will provide a weekly update for the statistics of each player from the launch of the game to the end of the 2008-2009 season for the Barclay's Premier League, La Liga BBVA, Ligue 1, Bundesliga, Serie A, & Mexican Primera Division.

    “PES 2009”, on the other, erm, foot, has an improved “Teamvision” system (whatever that means?!?). Tactics can change according to situation, and the console-controlled players can “recognise” strategies in play to offer better “off-the-ball” movement. I wish I knew what all this guff means… but wait, there’s more… “PES 2009” also takes into account air resistance calculations for ball trajectory & environmental factors such as the pitch condition affects the bounce of the ball so that (human) player strategies need to adjust with groundwork needing to be undertaken to establish if balls can be flicked or volleyed or whatever else footballers do with their regular shaped spherical objects.

    Needless to say my kids will want “FIFA 09”, even though the “PES 6” is still considered one of the better sports games from the PS2 back-catalogue (and we have two copies of this for some inexplicable reason & they never play it!).

    Oh well, roll on next year when “PES 2010” will go up against “FIFA 10”. I’d get your name down at the DVLA for those ‘cherished plates’ now before the development teams beat you to it…
