Something I can't understand from such a lone-franchise with so much potential to compete with the best of em when it comes to EA Sports. I touched on this franchise before, but for different reasons, I'm not sure what really, it was a while back. Anyway, it's a new year, and I'm looking forward to what's new from the new Fight Night Game when it drops. If you ask me, the only thing that stood out in previous FN Champion is the graphics. The whole motioning and phantom punches that can even K.O. u with one shot (or should I say, no shot) turned me off with that game online, to the point where if this next one don't impress, I'm calling it a career with the boxing games. More to my Point though.


A friend of mine tried to explain to me the reason why MORE stars in this sport won't take part in the game (FLOYD among others). He said "with games like UFC, Madden, NBA all operated under 1 brand, and each Boxer is his own brand BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. I get that, but still I don't see why fighters even treat opportunities at gaming exposure like a negotiation to a super-fight. You put the name of all the stars or potential stars you can name today on the disk, put Floyd face on the cover and it'll sell out like Samuel L. Jackson in Django Unchained. All fans and gamers alike jus wanna match dream fights with there favorites and what we get for it is the same non sense we see from Top Rank & GBP's rivalry. Honestly, Is there no logic in seeing your own image and style, promoted on a game that can pay you in more ways than 1? Sheesh! Hopefully this upcoming game can keep the fighters they already have while adding more faces like Mayweather, Ward, Martinez, Broner, Froch, Direll, Mares, Rigo, Matthysse, Chavez Jr., the list goes on.

the problem is the jinx.

it goes back to dlh who was on the cover of ko kings...and every fighter that graced the cover afterwards.

dlh gets the cover...he loses to trinidad

lennox gets the cover...he gets ko'd by rahman

roy jones gets the cover....he gets ko'd by tarver

i think klitschko and bhop might have been one of them too. i forget.

there was another fighter who i won't name who was in line to be on the cover of the last one. the deal was supposedly in place but he got ktfo'd and they went with someone else.

the last version of FN had up loadable characters didn't it?

Yup, but not to everyone convenience, and I don't think they Characterize as well as the ones already set in the game IMO.

I get your drift but this is boxing. Unlike games like madden and that "curse", there is no team here just one man preping and fighting

totally wrong on that one. sure there's a team. especially behind the highly successful fighters. they don't grow in vacuums or test tubes.
