    If anyone's after a real bargain, you can get this and a regular 500Gb PS4 for £150 in Smyths. They're clearing stock as the slim PS4 is on the way.

    Just had a brief go, like it, very slick.

    What does everyone think of Cov on it? Ratings, realism etc?

    Yawn.
    How do they play on your beloved PES? Oh, that's right... they don't.

    This looks pretty realistic to me:

    It's pretty clear to everyone here that you have your agenda on PES vs FIFA & I'm not going to even attempt to change your opinion. You are factually incorrect however.

    There are over 18,000 players in the game at 700 different clubs, each with 300 individual stats & ratings to reflect how they will perform in game.

    Once upon a time you were right that no individual team had set tactics to differentiate themselves from one another but that all changed a few years ago & they are now rated on dozens of different factors there too but I'm certain you're not one to let facts get in the way of your agenda.

    p.s. Bit harsh on Marvin, he can't help what he looks like.

    i have no agenda, other shave mentioned it on this very thread in past. every fifa game plays the same way. its a very direct attacking game. no build up play etc, every games same regardless of teams

    pes is very different and it actually matters which player you control to be able to excute moves like they should be in real life. this is why pes has won the war this year in terms of reviews.

    no agenda, just facts

    Woah, that's possibly the first time a Cov player has been given an actual likeness in a FIFA game, the closest in previous years has been generic 'John Fleck - small ginger man, Romain Vincelot - caucasian with beard'

    In the past being the operative thing you say. Not anymore.

    What are you basing that on? Playing vs the AI or other human players? Or probably in your case not playing it at all...

    You say "no agenda, just facts" but present zero facts?

    These reviews are always misleading, most nowadays are paid for by the games companies themselves plus FIFA is always criticised because, although brilliant, people always expect more (usually unrealistic things) from EA & will always focus on negatives as it has dominated for so long.

    I was a PES fanboy for years, right back from the ISS Pro Evolution days & it absolutely handed it's ass to FIFA through until the switch to the newer consoles (PS3/Xbox 360) for PES 2008. It badly lost it's way then to the point where it got so far behind it's hard to ever see it getting back to the same level as FIFA.

    That said I am delighted it has made huge strides in these last 2 iterations because competition can only bring out the best in both. To me PES still feels 'clunky' & lacking polish. The fact it only has just 245 clubs vs FIFA's 700 & of which just half are licensed will always reduce appeal. Last year I believe the game shipped with horrendously out of date transfers & only had 2 updates all season, FIFA is updated every single week & there is no focus at all on lower leagues in PES.

    It's each to their own but I will agree that PES has certainly narrowed the gap significantly where you can make a genuine case for owning either or even both.

    This wasn't meant to be yet another PES vs FIFA debate again though, I would appreciate the opinions of people who actually own & play FIFA as to what they think it has done right this year & perhaps where it could still be improved, particularly in relation the Sky Blues!

    I enjoyed the last FIFA but the lack of variety in playing styles was overbearing as I exclusively play against the AI. Hopefully that's less of the case with 17 and it doesn't suddenly become Mission Impossible to win the ball back if you're 1-0 down to Barnet in the 80th minute.

    Generally they get scanned while at Premier League teams. In recent years we have also had Delfouneso, Cargill, Akpom & Armstrong

    Ah yeah I forgot Armstrong was one. I think I'd started my career mode too early to ever see the rest at Cov

    No agenda, ha good one.
    I can show you reviews that says Fifa is better but what does that matter? Personal preference is the only thing that matters.
    Just out of interest, Isn't there a PES thread??!

    I signed for arsenal, get those lovely Ozil assists. Can see it having staying power as I'd like to play with a few different teams and see the differences.

    No point playing fut at the moment as the transfer market is insane
