Konami Digital Entertainment has announced it will ship more than three million copies of PES 2010 to retail, in readiness for the game's October 23rd launch on Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3 and PC-DVD.
Retail backing for the game is extremely strong, with Konami predicting the game will become a million-selling title at launch, and has reaffirmed its commitment to continuing its close relationship with its fan base for the 2010 and future iterations.
PES 2010 will be available for PLAYSTATION 3, Xbox 360, PC-DVD, PlayStation 2, PSP, Wii and mobile phones, and follows months of analysis and feedback monitoring to enhance the game in every area. PES Productions, Konami's Tokyo-based development team, has collated feedback on the series' strengths and weaknesses via fan forums, ardent and casual PES players and press comment, and has incorporated a wide range of requests in the new game. The result will be the most challenging, realistic and satisfying PES to date.
Konami has spent the last year expanding the development team's numbers, and created a number of dedicated departments, each striving to further improving their respective parts of the game both in the short and long terms. As well, as smaller requested elements such as manual goal keepers, more feints and special moves, and no barriers when taking throw-ins.
