It turns out that FIFA 17 dwarfs PES 17 when it comes to global sales.

While the two games are closer in quality than they have been in a long time, Electronic Arts wins the money battle, thanks in part to their marketing efforts and dominance in licensing.

The Pro Evolution Soccer 17 game caught up to FIFA in a lot of areas this year and is still the favourite of many gamers. But FIFA 17 by Electronic Arts is the clear winner for 2017.
