Football games – what choice is there for PS Vita players?

FIFA Football PS Vita

Players who want to get the new Pro Evolution Soccer game – PES 2015 – for PS Vita as with previous games in the series were disappointed hearing  that Konami’s football franchise stopped at the PSP in terms of Sony’s handheld format.

As a Sony fan, if you want to play the new PES generation, you’ll need to play on PlayStation 4 or PS3 or rely on Remote Play to access the game on the PS Vita. PES 2015, released on 13 November, features Mario Gotze as its cover player. The Bayern Munich wunderkind who scored the FIFA World Cup winning goal for Germany squares up against Barcelona’s star player Lionel Messi, who provides the cover face for FIFA 15.

In the real world of football, both Bayern Munich and Barcelona are tipped as favourites in football betting to win the Champions League this year, along with Real Madrid. Sites such as bet365 currently have Bayern and Real priced at around 3/1 and Real Madrid at 5/1.

Most football fans who want to play their own versions of top tier football will choose between Pro Evolution Soccer and FIFA games. And at least FIFA 15, released in September this year, is definitely available to play on the PS Vita. However, it’s not quite as good as it was for many Vita players with previous versions. This is because FIFA 15 doesn’t have the online multiplayer element as other generations did. For a game that is always more fun when you’re playing other people, it seems crazy that it’s not possible to do this anymore.

Of course, there are different modes that you can play FIFA 15 in. FIFA 15 comes with three kick off modes in which you can choose any of the 500 officially licenced clubs to play with including big name clubs such as Chelsea, Liverpool and Paris St-Germain. There are also two Be A Pro modes where you can select to be any particular player or goalie. It’s also possible to create your own tournament and indeed lay establish your own rules, using any of 50 real world tournaments. You also get a wide choice of stadiums, including 20 of the Barclays Premier League stadiums. Another choice is to play in career mode, where you can play as a player, manager or player manager.
