What's next for Forza fans? Check out the IGN Forza 4 article and find out.

Quote:
Forza Motorsport 4 has been out for a week now but work on the game won't stop for some time. Several batches of additional content are already well into production to keep Forza 4 idling for the foreseeable future. IGN AU chats to Turn 10's Dan Greenawalt, Creative Director on Forza 4, for some additional insight.

"We're going to be having 10 cars a month," says Greenawalt. "This is a cadence we did before; some of the cars will be a la carte. We're also offering in this version a Season Pass where you can get six 10–car packs for 30 per cent off and, if you do that, you get the American Muscle Car pack, the first pack, for free. So it's a total of 70 cars for a reduced price."

EGMNOW has posted their NFL Blitz hands-on preview.

Quote:
Speaking of menus, this definitely ain’t your daddy’s Blitz, because this new version includes countless game modes beyond your standard exhibition—and the biggest change probably starts with the customization features. We all like to play with our favorite teams, but we’re also probably painfully aware that many of them have at least one—if not several—deficiencies at key skill positions. Now, by earning Blitz Bucks via playing online or in Blitz Gauntlet mode (more on that in a bit), you can buy packs of football cards that feature cheerleader loading screens, cheats for classic features like Big Head mode, power-ups for online versus (again, more on that shortly), or actual players. Once you get a card of a player you’re looking for, you can go buy them and add them to a customized roster. Want Megatron—spectacular Detroit Lions wideout Calvin Johnson, for those of you not up on your football nicknames—to play in Chicago? Want punishing Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher to play on the Bengals? Or how about Colts QB Peyton Manning (pre-neck injury) to play for the Giants instead of brother Eli? You can carry this roster customization through every other mode, which really helps even the odds against some of your tougher opponents—or when taking on the Gauntlet.

Have any interest?

The FIFA 12 title update is available now, please post your impressions here. Below are some of the FIFA 12 title update details.
  • Goalkeeper control in online matches: We asked for your feedback and we got lots of it. After reviewing that and our own telemetry, we decided that enough people were abusing this feature online to negatively affect the experience of the majority. So we have decided to remove the ability to press Back/Select and play as the goalkeeper, allowing the CPU to defend, in all online matches. The function remains available in offline matches.
  • Fixed a situation that would see the user in an empty FUT Store without button functionality.
  • Fixed a FUT crash when using custom tactics.
  • Fixed a hard lock that would occur when applying a Manager Contract after purchasing a Bronze Premium Pack in FUT.
  • Fixed a situation that would see some users being disconnected from FUT after five seconds of connectivity.
  • We have optimized the FUT server to speed up transactions.
  • Fixed a situation where the game would hang when downloading a Game Face.
  • Fixed a situation that would allow an online team to be controlled by other player.

During the World Series, you can get your copy of OOTP Baseball 12, for $19.99.

Quote:
Our favorite time of year is upon us: the World Series. Whether your team is in it or not, questions annually swirl around the championship like autumn leaves: Will a team that's never won it all finally hoist the trophy? Will an upstart finish off an improbable run through the playoffs? Will a player make up for past failures and get a shot at redemption?

The sport's inherent drama is a big part of why we originally created Out of the Park Baseball, so we want to celebrate our favorite time of year by offering OOTP 12 for 50% off Oct. 18 through Oct. 27, the end of the World Series. (That date assumes the Series goes seven games, but even if it's a sweep, that price will remain in effect through the 27th.)

According to Captain Starball, the WWE 12 demo will not appear on XBL or PSN. It seems it will only be available in some retail stores.

Quote:
It appears as if there will be no demo released for WWE '12 on the PSN and Xbox LIVE according to THQ.

A fan asked WWE '12 Creative Director Cory Ledesma if it was true that WWE '12's demo will only be featured inside retail stores by saying "In store demo ONLY?? To quote The Miz: Really?? Really? Really? Really? Beyond lame if true.."

Cory Ledesma responded:

"I dont make those decisions. At least it's in stores."

Looking for a new NBA Street announcement? It might be a while, according to a recent interview The Guardian had with Andrew Wilson, EA Sports' president.

Quote:
You're relaunching Fifa Street and SSX early next year. Are there any plans to bring back other franchises from the EA Sports Big label, such as Def Jam Wrestling or NBA Street?

Not right now. We're always looking at when the right opportunity may happen. We launched NBA Jam at the end of last year and we've launched NBA Jam: On Fire Edition on PSN and Xbox Live this month. Fifa Street is coming back for the first time in three years and SSX is back for the first time in four.

We never say never, but it has to be at a time where we have a team that's passionate about the property. What we've found is that passionate teams build great game. If we have that sort of team and we think the time's right to make that sort of product, we'd jump right back in there.
