Jon Murphy has confirmed, via twitter, that the power bar can indeed be turned off via the options menu.
It’s become a talking point since it was announced, with many fans concerned it would diminish the visual look of the game when playing. Most predicted it would be an option to turn off, as there has always been great flexibility when it comes to the GUI in PES. Those guys were indeed correct.
In other news, Konami have released a kit collection to dress your 360 avatar with. More company related than PES, but worth a look with football fever upon us. It’s the World Cup tomorrow!
Full press release for that after the jump.

Dress your Xbox 360 Avatar with the KONAMI Soccer Kit Collection
Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has revealed the KONAMI Soccer Kit Collection to offer Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network users the chance to dress their on-screen avatar in their National side’s football fan wear this summer.
Konami is releasing a number of football items, which users can use to dress their Avatar in time for a summer of football. Users can download officially licensed football kits and team wear for the Brazilian, Dutch, French, Australian, English, Spanish, German, New Zealand and Italian national sides, which will then appear as a clothing option within the Avatar menu. Similarly, there will also be a selection of additional themed items including animated balls and banners as well as fan hats and caps – each available in the user’s chosen national colours.
The KONAMI Soccer Kit Collection will be available from June 11th, with costs varying from 240 Microsoft Points for a shirt, and 320 Microsoft Points for balls and additional items. It will be promoted by Microsoft in their summer of football campaign.
