PES 2015 PC specs won’t kick your machine into touch

Konami has delivered some PC requirements for PES 2015, which, while not as undemanding as the ball and some posts required for a real game of football, are nonetheless quite forgiving. They were announced via the official twitter account for PES 2015 and are as follows:

Just in case that twitter image doesn’t show up, here they are in text form as well:

Minimum:

OS: Windows 7 SP1 / Vista SP2 (it’s confirmed in the twitter replies that Windows 8.1 is fine too)
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8 Ghz (AMD Athlon II x2 240 or similar)
RAM: 1GB
GPU: Nvidia GeForce7800 / ATI Radeon x1300 / Intel HD Graphics 2000 (DirectX 9.0 compatible card with 512MB of VRAM)
Hard Drive Space: 8GB

Wow, I haven’t seen some of those items listed in a good number of years. An ATI x1300! Anyway, on to the recommended …

Recommended:

OS: Windows 7 SP1 / Vista SP2 (again, Windows 8.1 is apparently fine too)
Processor: Intel Core i3 530 (AMD Phenom II x4 925 or similar)
RAM: 2GB
GPU: Nvidia GeForce7950 / ATI Radeon HD 2400 / Intel HD Graphics 3000 (DirectX 9.0 compatible card with 1024MB of VRAM)
Hard Drive Space: 8GB

If Konami hadn’t already told us that the PC version is going to held back in comparison to the PS4 and Xbox One versions, these specs would be a smoking gun. It’s a shame, because with FIFA 15 being somewhat disappointing on PC this year PES 2015 could perhaps have made some real inroads. But PC players are unlikely to embrace getting a “hybrid” version of the game.

In addition to the system specs, Konami has released a new trailer featuring the previously announced Brazilian domestic team licenses.
