Known to be a key PES loving country, Konami will be relieved to see PES 2011 overcome a record breaking FIFA 11 launch weekend, by pipping them to no.1 spot in Italy. (Source)
In a week where FIFA 11 dominated PES in the UK, it’s a quick reminder that while EA have strengthened their grip on these shores, it’s a different situation elsewhere in Europe.

Stay tuned for news on how PES 2011 is performing later in the month, as it hits both the US (19th) and Japan (28th).
