Fight Night Round 4 to Have Zero Face Button Control
Written Monday, June 15, 2009 By James Parkin
The guys over at IGN recently had an interesting interview with Fight Night Round 4 producers Brian Hayes and Mike Maher. One thing that stands out is that FNR4 will not ship with the option of mapping controls to the face buttons (i.e. A B X Y) and instead, you'll have to make do with the joystick.
"Joe_Jalbert posted: Is there an option for face button controls?
Brian Hayes: No, there is no option for face button punching in the final version, but we are investigating providing the option via DLC."
Despite the feedback and constant complaints from the community regarding the control scheme, EA Canada have failed to react in time citing a patch (they actually say DLC, but surely they can't sell that to the public?) as a likely solution. Now only time will tell how this oversight affects initial sales and even review scores. Uh oh.
