The demo for football title PES 2012 is out now for PS3 and PC but Xbox 360 owners will have to wait until next month to play it.
Konami blamed the delay from August 24th to September on “unforeseen issues”.
The downloadable demo allows users to take control of six teams – Manchester United, AC Milan, FC Porto, S.S.C Napoli, Santos FC and C.A. Panarol – and play ten-minute football matches.
A second demo will also launch in September allowing gamers to play as Tottenham Hotspur, Bayern Munich, FC Internazionale Milano, Rangers Club America and Sport Club Internacional.
“We have spoken a lot about the new additions to PES 2012, and now we want users to see it for themselves,” said Konami’s European PES team leader Jon Murphy.
“By releasing a demo for preview purposes, we want people to get in early to try out the Teammate Control elements and to see for themselves how the Active AI works. This will then be followed by a second demo that offers different teams, and a closer approximation of what the final game will play like.
“We truly value the support and input of our userbase. These demos let them see how their help has aided the most ambitious PES to date.”
PES 2012, the latest game in Konami’s long-running football series, arrives on October 14th for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The PSP version will be released on October 28th and the Wii version will follow on November 4th.
Its rival, EA’s FIFA 12, will arrive on September 30th. A demo will launch on September 13th.
