Jim Ross stated on his official website today that a "major announcement" will be made Tuesday concerning THQ's annual WWE video game series, SmackDown vs. Raw.

"Arguably the biggest news to date from WWE on the video game front," Ross wrote.

The announcement is that the title of the annual WWE video game, SmackDown vs. RAW, will cease to exist. The rumored new name of the game is WWE '12, a year that will change annually.

THQ made the decision to change the title of the game because they felt the SmackDown vs. Raw title no longer fit the product due to WWE rendering the "brand wars" inconsequential. This also explains WWE ceasing the pay-per-view event Bragging Rights. While the event drew poorly both years, it was kept to help promote the annual release of SmackDown vs. Raw. C&P

I've decided not to get excited... but you never know... i want a revamped grappling system and revamped game

I just want something new from the game already. The SvR series has been pretty lackluster to say the least so i'm hoping WWE 12 could turn it around with new features and modes. BTW, they could have thought of a better name instead of WWE 12. lol

WWE and THQ have officially announced the end of the SmackDown vs. RAW video game franchise. The franchise will be replaced by a new yearly title, starting with "WWE '12", which will be released this coming Fall. THQ has promised that the new release will be "Bigger. Badder. Better."

Below is a trailer that has been released by THQ for the upcoming release:

This makes perfect sense to me. 1) Randy is much more fun to watch for me than Cena, and 2) Orton (I believe) is easier to market to the male teens/adults to buy this game. Cena Fans will buy this game, they don't need to market that. They're aiming for an older audience with this one. I like it.

I just want wrestlers to have there own moves instead of giving them generic ones. In the Smackdown series like Here Comes The Pain for example, wrestlers would do there own moves but now, everybody has 2 or more the same moves as everybody else in the game. Its just a minor problem I have with them though.

No, it's just a lazy programming decision. There are always heaps of moves available in the create-a-character modes, and there's really no reason that they couldn't get better at distributing them.

You know, that's an interesting question. If they're trying to be authentic and true to the character, they could just have him do nothing (like, he could just do a basic taunt or a pose). Design decisions like that could, in theory, actually make it so that the player has to be cognizant of their character and the attack strategies that they employ. For instance, if Ric Flair were still in WWE and being represented, you wouldn't even want to attempt going to the top rope with him because of course he would be slammed down.

Unfortunately, I think that approach would likely feed into the ever-growing complaints of the aforementioned shrinking move-pool, and it would probably lead to players feeling too limited.

You wanna know the hilarious part? Cena is the only character on the current game that I unintentionally lost to (not including 3+ participant matches). I took, I kid you not, a Running Shoulder Block, 5-Knuckle Shuffle, then an AA before I failed to kick out (It was a long match and I wanted to make him tap >.<)

Edit: Make getting people to tap a bit easier. Seriously, 100 Submission rating is basically impossible to make tap. I've never seen my downloaded Daniel Bryan clone tap. Ever. And I spent 30 minutes in a submission match trying.

I'm not saying it's impossible as I've made 'Taker, Cena, and even Punk bow down to a submission, but like I said, at 100 Submission Rating it seems to be virtually impossible to get that superstar to tap. Like Daniel Bryan CAWs. I've made him bleed, given him a Conchairto, then pedigreed him onto a steel chair, only to have him break out of my Dragon Sleeper in 5 seconds.

"New to the game is the ability to attack wrestlers during a move. For instance, John Cena is about to perform the Attitude Adjustment and Randy Orton drop kicks him, unlike previous games, John Cena will react and fall over, failing to perform the move. Also, in the Royal Rumble Match, players can stop people eliminating others by hitting them."

Worst one was Wrestlemania 23 where Ric Flair was more toned than Batista.


One other thing id like to see in the new game is grapple interuptions rather than attack. I think Beniot and Angle use to do this alot when they where in matches with more then 2 people in the three man triple German Suplex or the chop blocks that are done when Cenas trying to do the FU. And they need to bring back more weight control for example Yoshi Tatsu suplexing the Big Show.

I have one problem with them, looking at the gameplay video above me: It's not that fluid. There's a weird, albeit short, lag between orton getting to his feet and the move beginning, when there isn't that lag in the actual matches.

@ Roman: Yeah dude, there seems to be a bit of lag, hopefully that's because it's for WII.
That lag has nothing to do with the hardware that it's being run on and everything to do with being an early build of the game. I mean, existing WWE games on Gamecube don't even lag like that, so it wouldn't make sense to attribute that kind of fault to a machine that's twice as powerful.

I highly doubt it has ANYTHING to do with hardware/build of the game. I think it is just a simple delay between the Taunt finishing, the player hitting the finisher button, and the game registering the button press to perform the move. Unlike the "Hunting RKO" from either this year's or last year's game where it was ALL one move, this one seems to be two strung together by a button press.

Edit: While I'm at it: I wish for a Create-a-submission system!
Bring back GM Mode, and MAKE IT BOOKABLE. >.< Realism!

5 Things I hope they fix do you guys agree.

1 If you fall off a ladder don't get up right away as well as falling and landing on a table you shouldn't get up so easily.
2 Fix Universe let us choose how many matches you can put a show or PPV Wresltemania doesn't have only 7 matches it usually has 9 or 10.The booking way better please I'm tired and annoyed of Inferno matches every PPV let us choose title contenders and feuds and when Tag Teams are active and not active.
3 Weight System
4 Better names what kind of wrestler name would be ''The Rocker'' in SVR 2007 they had Carlos etc that's better in my mind.
5 Special Ref,I Quit,Buried Alive matches at least please. Special Ref in somehow in Road To Wrestlemania I believe it was in 2009 2010 and 2011 why not make it a official match I quit was in Shawn Michaels Road To Wrestlemania back in SVR 2010 and Buried Alive shouldn't be to hard.

I liked almost everything, except number 3. I mean in my view is a game, so why not being able to perform all your moves even against The Big Show? But everything else was right on the money.


Also, someone mentined a create-a-sbumission finisher. That would be great.

With the new Breaking Point Submission System they have I'm guessing it will be create a submission finisher.

I have one problem with them, looking at the gameplay video above me: It's not that fluid. There's a weird, albeit short, lag between orton getting to his feet and the move beginning, when there isn't that lag in the actual matches.

i noticed that too, but i figure it will be less noticable with certain moves, and hey, maybe THQ is gonna use the last bit of time they've got between now, and the release date to touch up on that kinda thing, they did say some of the animations are getting a big rehaul.

Couldn't seem to find the original thread of WWE '12, if the mods find it, merge it!

So apparently The Rock is confirmed as a Legend in the game. Not only him but none other than Mick Foley is as well.

Mick Foley has just hinted that he will be a playable character in the upcoming WWE game, "WWE 12". A fan asked named as "scrimshank111" on Twitter that he misses beating up Mick Foley in WWE video games.

To this Mick Foley himself replied:

"You may be able to beat up on one of my characters on the new @WWE video game @scrimshank111 - coming out in November. I sure hope so."

It has been also reported that Mick Foley will be present in WWE 12 as a DLC character after the game is released in late November, and the reason behind this, Mick Foley left TNA on June 5, 2011 so it would have been too late to include him in the main roster.

A fan asked WWE 12 Creative Director Corey Ledesma if the rumors regarding Mike Foley is true, he simply replied "no comment :)".

What that smile from Corey means?

Confirmed are:
Roster:

Raw


Alberto Del Rio
John Cena
The Miz
Triple H

Smackdown

Christian
Edge
Wade Barret
The Undertaker
Randy Orton
Daniel Bryan





Divas


Kelly Kelly

Rob Van Dam owns the name and trademarks to his character. He worked out a deal with WWE prior to signing a TNA contract that would allow THQ (the maker of Smackdown vs. Raw 2011) to use the "Rob Van Dam" name and his likeliness in the game. Obviously this is one of the tremendous advantages to securing the trademarks to your ring name and being allowed to use it in WWE because not only will he get his salary checks and bonuses from TNA, he will get a bonus check based on a percentage of WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011 sales.

My main hope for WWE 12' is the addition of more Create-a-wrestler moves, attires and building components. I feel like the abilty to make your created wrestler look new and exciting was pulled back this past year, they are close but need to push it over the edge. Also the removal of soooo many moves really irked me, it just becomes annoying when ur expecting certain moves in the games and they dont come close to previous SvR games.

Agree Johnny. they claimed that they removed moves that "hadn't been used on television" in a while but wrestling always ends up recycling. I mean look at Alex Riley - The last time i remember a TKO being used was Marc Mero in the 90s until A-Ry used it as a finisher on NXT and then on Raw. They should just keep EVERY move that has ever been used on the systems and just let us get on with it, instead of removing loads every year for a 3rd version of the Attitude adjustment.
I've always thought though, that every finisher should have several variations. Not just one or two like Cena, Orton or Rey mysterio (who have a few versions of their finishers).

My main hope for WWE 12' is the addition of more Create-a-wrestler moves, attires and building components.

Agreed while they did add a few moves I really like (pumphandle gutbuster F' yeah) but they took so many of my main characters moves I had to completely change his gimmick from Jomo/RVD type to The Brian Kendrick/Tyson Kidd

I heard that the developers of WWE 12 are spending more time with creating another Randy Orton model which features his beard. That's a total waste of money. Instead of doing this, they should spend more time with the Superstar Threads and make the players add stuff to the wrestlers like pants, elbow pads, new boots or kickpads, etc. It makes no sense to update Randy Orton's character when they can add a feature which makes us do it ourselves.

I can't have my Goldberg Spear, but GOD FORBID they give me a beardless Randy. They spend way the hell too much time on Create-a-Superstar options and too little time on improving the movepool. I do want an improved Superstar Threads--I like to keep my Cena up to date color wise. If they take out the Jackhammer Suplex, I probably won't buy this year's edition.

Its not just adding a beard. Its more features that has be added to the model. Hell, its not like they are going to replace this with a beardless Randy either, they might have Randy with a beard for the DLC pack, sorta like when we had two John Cena's in the game, one with an orange shirt and one with a purple shirt(which we had to pay to get) which is stupid and a desperation for money. If they work on developing the Superstars Threads, I see no reason to create another model of Randy with a beard.

It'd be nice to see that as a true submission, but I did like it as a set up over the figure-4 (none of that Superhuman break the submission shit).

I would have that one submission expert perk and use a submission move as a finisher and I would do it to them multiple times in a match with their head or chest being at maximum damage and they would never tap out.

Remember the "Beat Great Khali with (weakest Diva)" achievement? Good times.

Yes I do haha. Beat him in a 2 on 1 match Kelly Kelly and Torrie Wilson.

Did any of you notice that Charles Robinson is the referee!!!

If Snooki is on the game I will risk losing my personal details getting someone to mod her into fighting men.

I guess McCool is in it cos she retired, and wasn't released from WWE. & hopefully LayCool entrance is in this one

Christ that was annoying, it kept me from my completion. Was well happy when he tapped.
