There's nothing like rivalry to promote a deal - trade-in FIFA 12 at HMV this weekend and get PES 2012 for £0.99 pence.
Similarly, trade-in F1 2011 and get Forza Motorsport 4 for £1.99.
Pity the latter deal isn't Gran Turismo 5 for Forza 4 - it would make better headlines. I'm shallow.
PES 2012 launches on Friday. The verdict? Not better than FIFA but back on track. And, crucially, a viable alternative to boring-snoring simulation.
Forza Motorsport 4 also arrives on Friday.
