Fight Night Champion, now starting at $5 on PSN

EA is experimenting with new pricing models with a digital re-release of Fight Night Champion for PlayStation Network. While not exactly "free-to-play," this budget PSN adaptation takes cues from the F2P model by making the game available piecemeal.

Fight Night Champion Customizable will be available later today on the PlayStation Store for $4.99. It will include the entire "Champion Mode" from the retail game, allowing you to play through EA Sports' M-rated narrative.

March NPD: 3DS launch-o-rama

March NPD: 3DS launch-o-rama

Market research firm has issued its latest monthly retail-only sales report, covering February 27 through April 2--the first since the Nintendo 3DS handheld launched in March. As ever, console manufacturers have come out of the woodwork to support the report with figures and marketing spin.

Nintendo relays that the 3DS sold "just shy of 400,000 units" in the US within its first seven days of sale after launching on March 27. This falls slightly short of the regular Nintendo DS models, which combined sold 460,000 units. Read more »

The video game release list of 2/28-3/6

The wheels of progress turn slowly but surely and while Release List might look a bit barebones for now, rest assured that this will have no effect upon the actual games being released next week. We'll be bouncing along merrily, better than ever, as soon as possible. As the saying goes, "there'll always be video games."

What are you playing: Shacknews vs. GDC 2011

What are you playing: Shacknews vs. GDC 2011

In "old Shack" we would use the Weekend Discussion post as a platform for the editors at Shacknews to discuss what games they would be enjoying over the weekend. As outlined in this Chatty post, that doesn't really work with the new format.

What we've decided to do is to bring the conversation here, to a frontpage post. This allows us to highlight Chatty on the frontpage as it was in the past and--with the link between comments on the frontpage and in Chatty--give our users a place to share their current gaming experiences.

Fight Night Champion Introduces Fictional Fighter Andre Bishop for Story Mode

When Fight Night Champion is released on March 1, 2011, it will have something that no previous game in EA Sports history has had: a focused, character-driven story.

Fight Night Champion sports "a single player narrative that draws the user into a focused story about an individual character. Written by Hollywood screenwriter, Will Rokos (Monster's Ball), Champion Mode will tell the story of Philadelphia born middleweight boxer Andre Bishop and will introduce videogame and boxing fans alike to a side of sports rarely explored in videogames."

Fight Night Champion Delivers the Sweet Science on March 1, 2011

As was revealed at the EA Showcase in July, the sweet science is set to make a return to the EA Sports line-up with Fight Night Champion. Yesterday, the game's first trailer was released, revealing the game will launch for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on March 1, 2011.

Based on the game's trailer, Fight Night Champion seems to include a big narrative experience: rivals talk mess, promoters make threats, and a "hero" has to overcome odds. Just another day at the office of champions, I suppose. Read more »
