    Arrives 30 August this year. PC, PS4 and XBone only (at the moment). Very disappointed with the lack of a Switch version - may follow later, but not hopeful.

    I bet it's still a scripted mess with no fouls, terrible AI and goalkeepers with crisp packet wrists.

    Shame because it still plays a far better game of football than FIFA

    Sssh you. I still love 18. Although may not buy this year's. Incremental changes aren't really worth it given the hours I don't have to play it.

    My guess is now that they've migrated the PC code over to the newer engine, they don't really need to support 360 and PS3 anymore, and the Switch can't handle the fox engine / its a bitch to port, hence they aren't going to bother.

    Yeah, sounds about right.

    The main thing I hope for is ms to allow image imports so i can get it on the x rather than the pro.

    Will be interesting to see what licences they have though as they have said a lot more. The loss of the cl isn't important as nobody really played that mode anyway.

    Same here. Master League really needs a proper revamp too.

    I stand corrected then :D


    You are right about master league as well, its barely changed since it started.

    They could also do with a good ux designer to come in and give the ui a facelift.

    Yeah FFS this. It's 2018 and Konami still design menu's like a PS1 game. Trying to find anything is a nightmare. Really slow loading times for everything too, which I really don't understand given that it's a load of menus then a football match. It's not like they've designed Liberty City or anything.

    Presentation has always been awful in PES. Don't mean the kits/teamnames/stadiums, just everything else.

    I really want a god damn Switch port. Surely they can justify it now! FIFA is appalling.

    Aye I pre ordered the non peasant version from shopto for 42. Probably useless extras but as the difference was only 8 I thought why not? Ps4 version.

    Loved the demo but think I'll wait for a price drop.

    Ahh no, just the regular. For some reason I read the price on yours and missed the rest.

    I probably will do once I see if you can share the option files online for co-op.

    It's been years since I played FIFA and was tempted to go with it this year if there is a decent demo. I've been getting quite bored with PES last couple of years as they've been very similar.

    Did enjoy the demo though but I'll at least wait for a price drop.

    Yeah i'm definitely buying after mostly skipping last years in favour of fifa, trouble is i'm having real trouble trying to decide which platform to buy on :-( i'm enjoying xbox version after initially thinking it was terrible vs base ps4 version. The game always feels like a playstation game to me and would be nice to have reason to use the ps4 again, but it sounds like a damn jet engine playing it, but there are likely more people playing on ps4 vs xbox. I tried some online games on ps4 every one lagged out yet on xbox, although laggy was able to finish games no problem.

    I too wonder what PES_Fanboy will be doing in 2019. One thing's for sure: NO BUM STUFF.

    @jamesi get it on the PS4 rather than the Xbox because of option files.

    @frogofdoom it's a fair point but i normally quite enjoy doing some manual editing anyway. The disconnects online worried me and the noise (as loud as i ever heard it) has me thinking the console won't last the year and having to replace it would be a minor ball ache at this stage after buying scorpio etc.

    Yeah the kits still look terrible on the Xbox though even after editing due to the lack of image imports. The online was mostly good for me on the PS4 last year, had the odd game where it was awful but on the whole it was good.

    Think I've been corrupted a bit by playing Fifa on the Switch. God I wish this was coming to Switch.

    So it's hard to tell - is this a good year, do we think? I've got into bad, disgusting Fifa habits and it was hard to properly assess the demo. It felt sort of loose, if that makes any sense. Will probably buy on PC this year regardless.

    I played a few games online where the other guy seemed to be doing their best to get sent off, but the ref barely flashed a yellow. Think that bit could do with some improvement!

    I think it's a good year. They do need to address the ping pong passing still and the refs, keepers require an adjustment as well. The demo always feels different to the final game as well though so we can't be sure yet.

    The demo just didn't grab me (the keepers are not right and don't come off the line fast enough or at all) so I'm probably going to pass which is the first time I've missed two releases of PES in my gaming history.
    I really loved qualifying and playing in the Europa League with a crap team that I'd built up in ML and gutted that Serie B and Liga 2 have gone so that has put me off a bit.
    It does look great but I'm XB1 and can't be arsed creating all the teams, leagues, etc these days.

    Also, as Frogofdoom says, the demo is different than the release.
    PES2017 demo was still the greatest football game for me in terms of freedom of passing and movement then they "tweaked" it for release and it wasn't as good unless you stuck it on manual passing.
