Check the link for updates but sometime in 2011 more likely the date if I last saw right. There's an outside shot it comes out very late in 2010 but only likely in some areas before others.

On an aside, if your kid like high flying wrestling I saw the list of matches for the WWE new DVD might do well too. Was shocked how much Japan and Mexico stuff got on there.

The new RAW vs. Smackdown will be out before Xmas first on October 26 this year for all systems.

Hmm 2 interesting topics on the Raw vs. Smackdown 2011 games:

1. Some people are asking now about if talent is being removed from games if they leave the company and if it's possible to add them. At http://www.411mania.com/games/columns/154834 for their Q and A section they talk about it. Seems only when you transfer some talent in Legends of Wrestlemania upload feature there's complications of that nature, otherwise due to royalty deals the talent is intact.

2. Universal Mode has been put up via video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIVZmvTCgMc&feature=player_embedded

"Universe mode will always try to recreate an authentic WWE calendar, complete with alliance matches and results. The results and twists will change what matches come up in the mode and who you'll face off against. Players can choose who they control, and can swap out control at any time.

The team at THQ has also developed 100 new cut scenes that will show depending on what is currently happening in the universe, and may sometimes change a relationship or injure a player."

A few gaming notes again:

-Bryan Williams, who designed WWE Raw vs. Smackdown 2011, spoke to ESPN.com about the game. He said the original plan for the game was to have a downloadable Nexus pack with Wade Barrett, David Otunga and Daniel Bryan. But Bryan was released and they replaced him with Justin Gabriel. When Daniel came back, it was too late to put him in the game.

Jon Robinson, the author of the ESPN column, said that it might be possible for Daniel Bryan to be a DLC in the upcoming SvR game. Here's the quote:

"We have been seeing if it's feasible to include him in some DLC down the line, but if it doesn't work out for this year's title, he'll definitely be in next year's version."

-At http://www.411mania.com/wrestling/news/157019/HHH,-Undertaker-And-Rey-Mysterio-Take-The-Cover-Of-Smackdown-vs.-Raw-2011.htm is the press release for the new game talking about also who is on the main cover and more.

A few more tidbits of news:

-RVD is an unlockable character in the newest WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011 video game. He made the deal before signing with TNA.

-At http://www.gamespot.com/news/6282330.html?tag=sidebar%3Btitle%3B2 is news that a new peripheral arcade joystick is being made by THQ for the WWE games. Set for next year, Mad Catz's WWE FightSticks were developed for THQ's WWE All Stars being made in San Diego, which is intended to be an arcade-style alternative to the company's more simulation-minded SmackDown vs. RAW series. The game combines WWE stars of today with legends of the past in an over-the-top adaptation of the wrestling federation's already over-the-top action.

I had a brief go at the X Box 360 version at my con.The graphics were very well done and the game play seems okay.

Have pre-ordered the PS2 version and will pick it up in the next 2 days so will give a more in depth review after I've given it a test run.
