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!

zypher6191d ago (Edited 6191d 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_Gee6191d 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 !!

PS360WII6191d 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

lpkilla76191d ago

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

The great 16191d ago

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

Krimson6191d ago

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

I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.

gold_drake22h ago

omg chloe was awful. i really hated her at the end haha

Cacabunga17h ago

Abby was absolute trash protagonist in every way..
Tidus was so meh to me..
On villain side, the one i didn’t like wa Micah, because they wanted him to be that way and it was brilliant👍🏽

Rancegamerx19h ago

I agree, I liked Max, Chloe was a horrible friend and a bad influence.

Cacabunga12h ago

Everyone agrees on chloe, I’m sure even ND do.

H915h ago

Both are horrible, granted Chloe is infinitely worse, it feels like Chloe is just fanservice for people who too over the edge and wasn't written to be a character that makes sense

What about that Forspoken Tw*t

MrChow66617h ago

exactly I was expecting it to be a the top of the list

ravens5216h ago

Ye I was expecting her too. Guess they actually played the game. Unlike you and whoever agrees.

Christopher15h ago(Edited 15h ago)

She's actually not bad. It's the writing itself that is bad overall, but she's fine overall. She's no worse than Miles Morales IMHO. Both thrust into a spotlight and receiving both praise and blame and dealing with it.

Forspoken is a bland game because it's 75% bland, boring, repetitive going through the motions and diversions that add nothing of the value with purposefully gated memory moments that don't feel organic or like you're discovering things but waiting for others to reveal things.

ravens5213h ago

Exactly Chris. Even though I liked the game. I kno u played it. People who actually played it and went thru her dream saw she was a good likeable person who really just acted out due to being alone and unloved. I think your problem is it was open world, I think if it was more linear you may have liked it better.

savedsynner11h ago

Oh no she's bad. Very unlikable even before you add on the bad dialogue. The game could have been quite good with a good protagonist

ravens5243m ago

For all the people like synner. Shes actually half white lol. Inferior complexity is a hell of a thing. You'll be ok.

Nerdmaster1d 2h ago

Most of these aren't even that bad. Especially comparing to others like Squall "Whatever" Leonhart, Forspoken's Frey, and the guy from Atomic Heart.

-Foxtrot19h ago

Squall is one of the best developed main FF characters so...

People talk about his "whatever" thing thats at the start of the game, not the character he eventually becomes in the end.
