Re: Should WWE start releasing Complete Editions?
I thought they basically already did this with WWE 12? The Wrestlemania Edition or something like that?
It's a good move, especially considering not everyone has Xbox Live or PSN still, but giving it the pricetag of a brand-new, AAA game would be stupid. I don't have a clue about Americanese dollars, but I think it'd be fair to charge £20 for a complete edition at release - especially considering the fact that, by the time it comes out, the next iteration in the franchise will be out soon.
Personally I'd like them to be more active in keeping the current entry up to date. Sure, you get maybe a dozen or so extra wrestlers added over the course of the game's lifespan, but it'd be cool to get arena packs and stuff, too. Even little things, like updated logos for the shows or PPVs. Bundle all of that together into 6 separate packs over the course of 12 months and they'd be keeping the game alive until the next one comes out.
Up until now, with THQ folding, I'd say there's a pretty steep drop in the life of a WWE game. They come out every October/November - but who the hell is honestly still playing more than an hour a day after Christmas? There's just nothing to them anymore.
