WWE not happy with THQ

PlayStation 3 | Rumors
News4Gamers.com |

According to staff at WWE euroshop and at THQ, the WWE have been upset over the annoucement by THQ, for dropping this years addition of its ever so popular smackdown series for the PS3.

Staff at WWE euroshop have even stated that they,ve been told not to sell THQ's videogames until further notice.

THQ signed WWE to10 year contract to publish the WWE games on various platforms every year.

According to THQ reps, the WWE have a profound relationship with Sony corp, and have felt cheated by THQ over the annoucement.

Since the contract began, Sony have supported the WWE for 23 pay per views and 41 house shows and tours, and use to sell Sony products at its WWE store in times square.

Rumours did spread a while back that the WWE were looking to part with THQ and sign with a bigger company (EA probably), but THQ held there ground.

If this story of a rift does get bigger, i doubt THQ will have the WWE on its books.

yeh cant say I'm surprised they are pissed, I'm pissed. Its unbelievably gay that they are going to release it on PS2 but not on PS3 I don't understand the logic. It will lose them alot in sales.

Sign with EA Sports, I'm sure they can make a better game than WCW Mayhem that EA released a long time ago..

The problem is that in signing with a new developer, it's pretty much back to the drawing board. Games like RAW and Wrestlemania have been lambasted by fans and critics alike for everything from gameplay to content.

The SmackDown franchise is really as refined a wrestling game as there's been on the current gen systems, and it's mass appeal makes it akin to the Madden Franchise for football.

In dropping THQ, WWE would essentially be going back to square one, and bringing the gaming crowd into WWE is a big part of the business plan.

This could be a tough situation.

Late.

EA has collaborated with AKI in the past (AKI infamous for games like WCW/NWO Revenge, WWF No mercy, and Wrestlemania 2000) so hopefully they could work together.

Development on the new hardware probably wasn't going as they expected so the game for PS3 might not have been able to be finished in time for the console launch or for the game's multi-platform release. I'm sure they weren't just sitting around and going, "Hey, let's cheat the PS3 fans just for the hell of it!"

Exactly. Like I said, it was development problems for the PS3. They probably didn't have final dev kits for as long as they would have liked, which slowed the process, especially since it's new hardware.
