It's gonna be a showdown this year: EA's FIFA 09 vs. Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 09. If you're wondering which side to choose, you'll have to do the research and make a decision; that research would involve this video for PES 09. It may never fully catch on here in the U.S., but soccer remains the world's sport of choice. Hence, the market can handle two great games, although we know Konami and EA will be going toe-to-toe later this year when both titles hit store shelves. We've heard rumors that EA actually took some cues from last year's PES title, so perhaps these two games will be more similar than you think... In the end, perhaps it's PES 2009 that has the edge; this video is undeniably impressive, and the more we hear, the more excited we get.
