"Every year, THQ and Yuke's put out a WWE game, and every year, fans piss and moan because the roster is out of date -- someone switched shows, someone won a championship, and so on.

Smackdown vs Raw 2009 gives you the power to shut up and fix any continuity errors.

Yes, via the Roster Editor, fans can pop into the game's roster and switch Superstars to whatever brand they like (Raw, SmackDown, ECW, Free Agent, Legend, or a special classification that's only available after being unlocked), swap titles, decide who is clean and who is dirty, as well as view stats and Abilities. In addition to the Roster Editor, SVR 09 packs a feature called Team Management. Here, you can create or destroy tag teams, give the duo a name, or add others to the stable."


This sounds pretty cool to me, cos ive alays got annoyed at the game because say jeff hardy was supposed to be on smackdown when hes on raw etc (example). But however the article title was misleadng and i thought it could have been aout DLC.

What do you guys think about this new feature?

I'm impressed they brought this feature back into the game. They had it several years ago, I believe it was 2006, were you could change the current title holder etc. Yeah it was basic but it was at least something.

I hope this new feature applies to all settings rather than just your exhibition bouts. It looks like it will be in season mode, or whatever it is this year, so hail THQ for finally realising that these little features can make or break a title.

very,very inovative. i'm really looking forward to this game come novemenber. first piece of news i've come across on this game because i've been trying to keep a low profile and be surprised but this is really good news

Can keep things up to date or pick the roster you want. Either way is pretty cool. Might not be any point to buying S vs R 2010 with how well this is turning out.

Anyone got confirmation on DLC? Heard they were going to do it for 2008 but nothing ever appeared. Would be awesome to get new wrestlers, legends, just update attire/ ring entrance music for current superstars, extra arena's, and even better extra storylines for career.

Rumours are the DLC is going to be wrestlers like the TNA game.

Will be interested to see if any DLC does appear, hope I'm wrong and some does appear but not going to get too excited over it.

I'm actually looking forward to this new feature because I'm one of those persons that everytime someone get traded to a different brand or someone else wins the championship I always want to have everything up to date in the game like in real life instead of having everything look old. So I'm actually looking forward to this new feature.
