PES 2015 Takes the Pitch with Launch Trailer, Day 1 Update

After a disappointing showing on last-generation consoles a year ago, while EA SPORTS FIFA 14 was left to show off on the new console generation, Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 has made its debut on the Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One with renewed vigor and a newfound swagger, touting the marketing tagline “The Pitch is Ours” to represent their confidence in the on-field product.  Early reviews and impressions around the gaming world have suggested that PES 2015 is true competition to FIFA 15 in a manner not seen in many years, and the game’s launch trailer (below) sets out the core values of the “PES experience.”
