PES 2011 release date challenges FIFA

UPDATE: Football giants go head-to-head

UPDATE: Konami's just announced a release date for PES 2011 at its conference in Cologne.

It's arriving on October 8 on 360, PS3 and PC - just one week after bitter rival FIFA 11 comes to town.


The move away seems a very deliberate ploy by Konami - which is clearly feeling very confident about this year's PES edition.

PES 2011 is looking like a big improvement on this gens offerings so far. Go and read our PES 2011 gameplay preview if you haven't already.

CVG's FIFA 11 review will be here a week before the game's out.
