PES Developer Criticizes FIFA 2013 Aesthetic Improvements

By   /   4 years ago


Konami, the developer of Pro Evolution Soccer, has criticized EA’s word on their next FIFA game, FIFA 2013.

ES team leader Jon Murphy has stated that EA’s emphasis on visual and aesthetic tweaks shows that the developer company is out of innovative ideas.

Speaking to the Official PlayStation Magazine, Murphy stated that EA believes it has gone ‘far enough’ with the gameplay, and is now attempting to attract a different kind of audience.

“We always focused on gameplay and that’s what we want to get back to. Maybe EA thinks they’ve gone far enough with gameplay and they’ve got other things to do – maybe they want to attract a different kind of audience with different features. But I’ve always thought it’s right that we should be concentrating really hard on the way you play a game against someone else, and that unique PES feeling, which is all about gameplay.”

EA’s FIFA franchise has been winning the battle for most sold football (or soccer – whatever you want to call it) game at the moment, with PES just falling behind, but Murphy believes the franchise’s position isn’t going to last forever.

Well, I do understand – in a crude manner – what Murphy is trying to say, but the impression giving out by such open criticism won’t earn him or PES any stripes. Only time will tell which one is the victor in the PES 2013 vs. FIFA 2013 battle.
