9 Years Of PES and Winning Eleven In 6 Minutes Of Awesome

Some people prefer Microsoft over Apple. Others prefer Pro Evolution Soccer (aka Winning Eleven) over the FIFA video game series. But for those of you who prefer the Konami title instead of EA Sports, here’s a video which bring you 9 years of Pro Evolution Soccer (aka Winning Eleven) history, in just over 6 minutes.

Looking back, it’s interesting to see how the game has evolved over time from the launch of PES 1 in November, 2001 to the 2009 version. There are still plenty of people who prefer PES over FIFA and the debate never seems to end.

Due to licensing issues, some teams and player names on the 1991 version Pro Evolution Soccer are incorrect, e.g. Wim Suurbier is named Slowbear in the Classic Netherlands squad.

Hat tip to Wired Magazine for the headline idea.

    Have enjoyed this and the FIFA retrospective videos. Would have been good to see this clip start with the ISS titles, too.

    FINALLY some love for Pro Evo, because some/alot of the FIFA fanboyism i’ve seen on this site has been making me sick TBH, considering FIFA games have only been decent since the next-gen jump two years ago. Pro Evo has been the king football games and have been doing it for the past 10 years, yes the past few years have been up to the standard we’re used to BUT this year in a BIG WAY.. PES 2011 is indicative that the glory days are well and truly on its way back for the series, and the King is poised to take his mantle back.
