    KONAMI did it again, my friends. The PC version of PES 2017 is still using the first version of FOX Engine (looks like a PS3/Xbox 360 game). The difference is noticeable. You don`t even need eagle eyes to see what they did there. What is the point of it? It`s like they don`t even care about the pc gamers at all. I know that a huge part of the profit comes from console gamers, but come on! Konami NEEDS money urgently, and how the heck they expect to make money by selling a crippled version for the pc gamers? It`s pretty obvious that the customers will prefer FIFA 17 instead, as there are no differences between any of the platforms.
    This is why PES is always a step behind. They don`t even care anymore. Just watch the video below and see by yourself. The worst thing is that it`s not the first time it happens. PES 2014, 2015 and 2016 for pc are also inferior graphically and technologically. What a shame!

    The difference is really noticeable. It is weird. Why would someone do this to their own product? Is that a way to force football fans to buy consoles instead?

    Maybe they are low on budget and cannot afford next-gen engines for all the platforms.

    They do not care about PC gamers. That's it.

    Maybe you are right. This is extremely sad, though. I would love to play PES 2017 on PC. But nah, not with this graphical quality.

    The console version looks amazing, though.
