That will be very strange if they revamped everything and didn't put in detection.
That was the main thing that got me excited, but maybe I read it the wrong way. Crap!
They REALLY need that feature!
And they really should have gotten rid of RTWM this year. It's terrible.
All I could find on it is this -
All that, and there's still more to say. Unless your opponent is really hurting, expect to get just one ground grapple in. The right stick repositions opponents. Animations change based on weight classes. There are new "attach points" for moves so that hands and legs lock to certain points in certain moves and don't clip through bodies. Justin Roberts is here as the ring announcer, King and Cole are confirmed, and Alberto Del Rio's entrance comes complete with Ricardo Rodriguez.
So while it does mention weight classes, it doesn't explicitly state that Wrestler A can't powerbomb Wrestler B or whatever. I've looked at a few reviews and none of them mention anything either, although there are only 4 guys in the E3 demo and they're all heavyweights, so maybe it simply hasn't been shown yet?
Hopefully that quote doesn't mean that the extent of weight detection will consist of a guy taking a while to lift Big Show's leg for a submission or something.
I do like what I've seen of the gameplay, but after emphasising how much change they've brought to the core gameplay of the series, not having weight detection would be absolutely retarded imo.
