Vincent kennedy McMahon obviously seems to think this is a disgusting move by THQ to cancel the PS3 version of this game, so he obviously believes PS3 will be the no.1 console!

zypher6478d ago (Edited 6478d ago )

well, i don't know what McManhon's beliefs are, but i DO know that he wasn't too happy with THQ for canceling the PS3 version of SvR. even back then WWE had threatened to disassociate themselves with THQ...apparently Sony and WWE have a close relationship. i guess i can consider it from both angles. THQ is the developer: unless they had some clandestine dealings with Microsoft to cancel the PS3 version, then it was probably a time-constrained issue. they probably knew what they were doing when they canceled the PS3 version. on the other hand, the series started on Sony's systems. thats where THQ made the bulk of their money. to suddenly go against Sony like that, after the PS systems made THQ so much money, and considering how close Sony and the WWE are, would infuriate even the least jaded person. but to infuriate the market-leaders of both the videogames industry and the sports entertainment industry was just plain unwise.

Vince is pissed because with it being on only one next gen console, that takes money out of his pockets. Vince could care less which console is better, dumbass.

Obviously Vince Mcmahon knows more about video gaming than THQ!!!

Mikey_Gee6478d ago

.. this is a very good game.

I hate wrestling games but find myself hooked on the DEMO and want to buy it.

I DOUBT old Vinny would be stupid enough to pull it from the 360 .... IT WILL BE A BLAST !!

PS360WII6478d ago

Even though the artical had no mention of the reason for this is because of the cancelation of the ps3. That's just your assumption.
Maybe he's just tired of having sub-par wrestling games out there with the WWE logo on it

lpkilla76478d ago

Please let this happen. THQ sucks ass. I hope the license goes to ROCKSTAR or UBISOFT.

Your thinking there, Rockstar would make it brutal, the way it should be!

Krimson6478d ago

Probably trying to terminate the license to give to EA. UGH!

With The Xbox 360 Store Closing Soon, Let’s Look Back At The Console’s Legacy

As the Xbox 360 store will shut down on July 29, 2024, I think now is the best time to look back at the console's legacy.

I remember good old years of RRoD

Not to mention, #scratchgate

And also taking your hard drive to your mates in a backpack, only to get there and find “Error 80072EF3 data is corrupted”

Great one. LAN party Night ruined.

darthv723d ago (Edited 3d ago )

Dont know about the hard drive one, but if you were doing a LAN party then you'd take the whole system... not just the hard drive. As for scratched discs, yeah that was an issue for all of those optical drive based systems. I had ps1 and ps2 scratch discs, same with dreamcast, saturn and 3do. Come to find out that you really shouldnt be moving the systems while the discs are spinning... go figure.

One system i never had that problem with was the og xbox, only because it was built like a tank and weighed just as much.

purple1013d ago

you take the hard drive when there are already multiple xboxs there, but you want your account, ie your level 32 on halo, but your mates only level 12, and you intend to go online at some point, etc.

360 scratched disks even without moving the console, laser alignment was off.

shinoff21832d ago

Darth those scratching disc issues weren't just from moving the console, it was an issue while just sitting still as well

Einhander19722d ago (Edited 2d ago )


Yes CD get scratched, but the 360 issue was that the disk drive spindle put the disk back onto the tray before it stopped spinning. That was not the case with PS1 or PS2.

The 360 had an actual problem caused by the hardware itself. The disks would get circular scratches from the disk spinning on top of the tray.

And I own plenty of PS1 and PS2 games and none of them have that type of scratches. Where as the 360 games I own all have this exact type of scratch.

This isn't even really a debatable thing, it went to up to the supreme court. Who didn't rule on the case and sent it back to the lower court where Microsoft settled instead of having to face a class action and admit that the 360 had yet another major flaw.

I had disc scratch issue with xbox, even without moving it, but not with other consoles. With xbox if you moved your console, it was game over for your disc as far as I remember. You could hear it.

True. Still spanked the ps3 though.


shinoff21832d ago

It didn't though in the end Ms stopped supporting it halfway through and ps3 ended up with better games. Last of us over everything released that gen, alone.

Far as sales ps3 was also on top of the 360

darthv723d ago (Edited 3d ago )

Great system marred with poor design choices in its early life. From the first redesign on though... it was nearly flawless. and the games hold up remarkably well still to this day.

Kinect would be the only late in life blemish, but one that 'thankfully' didnt last for too long. Its a really cool piece of camera tech... just not that great for games.

purple1013d ago

I actually thought Kinect was good, they could have tried harder with it and found some success,

the only problem was them including it bumping up the price, they could have had a bundle with it included and another without, but they only had the one bundle, so people felt forced into it.

Will the 360 games still be available to buy on Series X|S, or is that going as well?
