  • don’t have the game, stopped playing wwegames after 07…but masked kane…ahhh the mmemories

  • I wasn’t gonna get this game, but if you are doing DLC, how can I not?
    PS3 deserves your support, thank you.
    If you support the PS3, I’ll support you.

  • sweet i been waiting for this to be announced!! i can’t wait to buy this!

  • I like the new tag team mode alot. More charaters is alwaya good in my book.

  • Not really into wrestling that much anymore, but I commend you for giving PS3 fans exclusive DLC. Might grab it if I get some extra $.

  • Does this game have trophies?

  • So…
    360 gets the exclusive GTA downloadable content the Lost and the Damned

    PS3 gets santa costume DLC for wrestling ring girls(in January no less)?

    Some things aren’t even worth mentioning Sony. :-)

  • DLC? How’s about you guys worry about fixing the lag-fest that is online play before you try to get more money out of me, mmm-kay?

  • Actually didn’t see there was other alternate costumes for wrestlers. Still not interested in wrestling, but its not just past-relevant holiday costumes so I’ll correct myself. :-)

  • HEY!!!! TIME TO PLAY A GAME !! :D

  • EDGE best current heel. :D

  • nothing says happy holidays as much as Masked Kane throwing someone out of the ring! :) I’ll probably get this game… i haven’t played a wwe game on a new gen system.

  • Masked Kane is the only Kane to me.

  • Keep on milking that brand, THQ. Vince will be proud.
    These chars should have been on the disc in the first place

  • I will buy this game if they will patch trophies

  • It’d be nice of you guys fixed the gamebreaking glitches that are abused online.

    You guys might want to balance up the gameplay too. Maybe also make it so you can’t just mash R2 to counter 80% of the time.

  • here’s an example of one of those said glitches I mentioned

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vxNrMjtwyU

  • The glitch is at 1:31 into the video(sorry for the triple post :P)

  • Lol Does anyone even play this game?

  • My cousin was wondering if you guys are going to add 6 man Elimination tornado Tag. Because we love playing that.

  • @7 – Geesh. You’re like an angry girlfriend that can’t move on. Might I suggest downloading this DLC and smacking some folding chairs to release that pent up anger? Or growing up? The choice is yours (*whipers* folding chairs are more fun).

  • That’s the way to do it up, Now if only you would stop m$ from snagging the good DLC exclusives. Just keep it moving, and we’ll get there yet?

  • Sounds great, having recently picked this game up for £19.95 (the special collectors edition) yeah ill add some funds to my network wallet and buy the DLC

  • About time (they should have done thing long ago) might have to go buy this one.. As if I wasn’t broke all ready… To many good games LOL I just started saving for killzone 2… :D

  • not really into wrestling but it’s good to see Sony getting back into the exclusives race.

    it just feels good as a PS3 owner to know we’re the only ones with something. lol. completely selfish and childish maybe (haha we have it you don’t) but who cares.

    i love the fact that only fellow PS3 owners can get Motorstorm, MGS4, LBP, Killzone, Buzz, Resistance etc. and they’re all INCREDIBLE games.

  • Sounds cool. Thanks for the info

  • Yeah I bought it at Best Buy too for $34.99. I almost picked up the TNA Game over this one.

    I saw the DLC being pushed and hoped that they would be patching in trophies for the game.

    It seems like a no brainer if they really wanted to succeed on the PS3.

  • What The Hell Man What About PSP??? you can’t download them to the PSP, That’s Not Cool

  • just a couple of questions, is there a specific date in january for the dlc ? also what other playable characters are you thinking of making and how many packages will there be ? you have got to consider the following, the brian kendrick’ vladimir kozlov’ manu’ r truth’ ezekial jackson’ jack swagger. now i would pay good money for them. love the knew jericho attire too. why is his entrance music not the same ?

  • SONY has told in a news byself

    “Nothing is forever exclusive”

    so this news is very LOL for me

  • How about some Legends… Sure Evan Bourne is a great addition but that’s about it… I would like to see some Legends like Mr. Perfect, Bret Hart, The Rock, Stone Cold and how about even Owen Hart….

  • this is great the fact that we get more superstars but instead of ted dibiase who is a legend and i thought legends werent on the game because of the legends of wrestlemania coming out what about vladamir kozlov he is currently one of the dominant superstars and he isnt on the game

  • The Ted DiBiase in the DLC is the legend Ted DiBiase’s son, not the legend himself. They just left the “Jr.” off the end of his name.

    lol Kozlov.

  • Am I stupid or? Can’t where to download the update. I see it’s coming in January, but people talks like they’ve allready tried it?

  • They should do a little update on both Jeff Hardy(his facepainting) and Batistas haircut, The Animal look ten times cooler when he’s bald:-)

  • i have been a big fan of SVR series and i would like to request (i do hope..:p) that bret hart,stone cold, the rock, eddie guerrero,the ultimate warrior and owen hart? be included in the DLC pack next time…(creating them in CAW seems awkward..and would open more wrestlers i like to create in CAW)also how about the movesets of chris benoit and hulk hogan?of ultimate warrior?

    please please THQ management!!!!!!
    make my dream come true…im a diehard SVR fan..please grant my wish…

    next DLC pack..

    WRESTLERS – (legends)the rock, stone cold, hollywood hogan, eddie guerrero, ultimate warrior..owen hart and bret hart…

    (it would be enough if you include bret hart and hollywood hogan..they are so hard to create on CAW) please, please…

    others needed must be, vladimir kozlov, r-truth, jack swagger, ricky ortiz..gregory helms..(existing wrestlers)

    MOVESETS-chris benoit and hollywood hogan..(they cant be created in CAF)

    ENTRANCES – brock lesnar,..goldberg (very unique entrances, cant be made with CAE)

  • Firepro needs to make a comeback and in 3d it would kill any wwe wrestling game. Even FirePro Returns is better than this garbage even with firepro’s PS2 graphics.

  • any one know when its coming to uk please any one

  • -Does anyone know the offical date we can get these new add-on?
    – no legends will be out for this games b/c of the new game coming in march most likely
    – I would like to see the kozlov, Shane O mac, Sim suka, Manu, R- Truth and Ezekial Jackson

  • does anybody kno when in january u can start to download in svr 2009

  • for usa its jan 9th
    does anyone know when it will be for me in the uk england

  • As much as I agree with you guys, (about Benoit) I highly doubt you will be seeing him or his moves in a WWE title any time soon. I would be shocked if he appeared in the legends of Wrestlemania title considering how the WWE organization treated the entire Benoit situation like the plague. A shame really because the crossface is my favorite submission move.

  • I have a question about some of the Superstars i WWE. What’s happend with stars like; Bobby Lashley, Hardcore Holly, Elijah Burke? Haven’t seen them in any of the WWE matches this year(also thinking of 2008).

  • Can’t speak about Hardcore Holly, but Bobby Lashley quit and is pursuing a career in mixed martial arts, and Elijah Burke I believe was released.

  • When does it comes out in Europe?

  • when does it come out in england
