Konami has said that they are very optimistic about sales of Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 , so expect sales to rebound thanks to its good reviews it is receiving from the press.
“We are delighted with the critical reception PES 2017 has received,” said global product and brand manager Adam Bhatti. We naturally believe in it as a product and where it is headed, but the level of love for the game this year is staggering. Our stated intentions have been universally well received and the review scores are mind-blowing.”
“Such reviews help justify the big improvements and the overall direction we’re taking the series. We will never underestimate EA and the talented FIFA team, but our goal is naturally to establish PES as the definitive football title.”
“To do this, we need to sustain this level of quality for a long time to come – and we genuinely believe this will equate to more users and, in time, increased sales. We have managed to change perceptions of the series in a few years, but cannot afford to rest on our laurels, though, and will be looking into where we go from here and addressing how we can further enhance the game via download elements during the coming year. We focused on always improving and looking to grow the series.”
Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 is now available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. This new release includes as a novelty the “Control Reality”, allowing players to enjoy greater realism and control over the ball.
