PES 2015 demo dated

by: Nathaniel -

We stand on the cusp of a new Barclays Premier League season.  That sentence maybe means more to Americans than it ever has before thanks to NBC's phenomenal coverage of last season.

If EA's FIFA franchise is the Barclays Premier League of soccer videogames, then Konami's PES franchise is League 2 - aka, the fourth tier of English soccer.  

Or maybe a kinder comparison is that PES is the Europa League to the FIFA's Champions League.

And now that Everton's Roberto Martinez had decided to throw caution to the wind and try and win the Europa League to secure a spot in the next season's Champions League, I've decided to get excited about the first PES title to appear on current-gen consoles.  

It will be called PES 2015 and demo will hit the PSN and Xbox Live on September 17.

The full game will land on current and last-gen consoles, and PC on November 11.
