As with every sports game, the makers of WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw 2009 could probably just update the stats of the previous year's model and hear no complaints. Rather than rest on their laurels, the developers on THQ's upcoming wrestling game -- which will be out on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, PSP, Wii, DS and even cell phones this fall -- are revamping many of the game's underlying systems.
According to Creative Manager Bryan Williams, the changes that will most excite longtime fans of the fighting series are all the new and improved modes, including a revamped tag team that will have players happy to wait their turn.
