As we reported yesterday, the PES 2012 demo was leaked by a Konami insider as their public download link went live suddenly and as it was to be expected, the giant Japanese developer and publisher took it down today. We were among the lucky ones who actually got it, so we can tell you that this demo is the real deal, that is based indeed on the preview build of PES 2012 and that it is okay – albeit a little arcade.
Konami is also trying to take down all various links that already have this particular demo. In case you were unaware of, the demo weights over 1.2GB and features six teams and their playing styles – Manchester United, AC Milan, FC Porto, S.S.C Napoli, Santos FC, and C.A. Panarol – and pit them against each other in 10-minute matches.
In addition, the demo also showcases key Challenge Training elements, where fans can practice the new control systems to fully enjoy the game.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
