They are PES's best numbers in comparison with FIFA (in the UK, worldwide stats I don't have), and they did get really close. Pretty sure PES was on a whole lot less platforms back then too compared to FIFA. PES has just fallen away so much, but FIFA has grown massively too now that EA put some effort into it.
Yeah PES 2 - 6 i think is when it was at it's best. My last favourite PES was the 6th one.
6 was gooseberry fool. 5 was the end of the line for this series. I think it did decent numbers because the 360 had just launched as people were desperate for a new gen pro evo. Myself included. When i played it the horror.
I loved 6 it actually had a stable online mode unlike most of the PES games since then.
Pro was always about the multiplayer for me, i suppose before online gaming evolved. Konami seemed to screw that up, and it went from bad to worse.
Oh yeah the offline multi was amazing, i use to play all the previous ones with my mates on a weekly basis. Fifa at that point was an absolute joke of a game,PES 6 was my first introduction to online football games. The 360 version had a weird new engine which looked a little different to the ps2 version but once you got use to that it was ok as everything else was the same. The online mode though was really solid at least for me and i remember having some epic games although you could really mess with the formations. I remember needing to win a game badly once and i put 6 players up front and hoofing the ball repeatedly just to get a win. Adriano was also the most OP player ever.Check out that shot power.
