While Konami’s PES 2011 looks to greatly improve on last year’s effort, publishing rival EA believes that FIFA 11 will help the company increase its market share in the sector even further.
Over the last couple of years, FIFA has been an excellent performer and we continue to grow market share over Konami,” EA’s senior European VP Jens Uwe Intat told MCV.
It also shows that our products do get better – FIFA’s Metacritic scores keep going up. We have a clearly superior product over Konami, which we did not have in the last generation.”
