Konami put out one carefully-selected image today, the first showing off the character models and real-time shadows that will inform the Pro Evolution Soccer 2010
experience. You can see the original image after the jump, but I threw Konami's in-game screenshot against a real photograph of cover boy Lionel Messi just to take a GPS reading of where we're at in the ol' Uncanny Valley.

KONAMI RELEASES FIRST IN-GAME IMAGE OF
PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER 2010
|Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. has released the first in-game image of its forthcoming sports title Pro Evolution Soccer 2010. Demonstrating the stunning new level of detail and graphical refinement, the work in progress image shows cover star Lionel Messi in action in the new game, and showcases a massive advance in aesthetic detail. PES 2010 will feature all-new dynamic lighting effects, where the position of the sun or the illumination from the floodlights is reflected in real time within the shadows cast both on the pitch, stadium, the ball and players.
The newly-expanded Tokyo-based PES Productions team has also worked hard to create the most vivid player recreations to date. Player expressions are now fully implemented, while the level of detail has been extended to individual skin textures and different weaves for the various kits (jerseys) to mimic the breathable material that many manufacturers use today.
PES 2010 is scheduled for release on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Windows PC and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system this fall.
