WWE ’13 Diva News, Rumours & Polls
In an interview with the nerds at THQ, it was revealed that the previously leaked roster for the WWE ’13 game could infact be up in the air as they want it to seem as fake as possible as they want it to be a surprise to the buyers of the game. Here are some Diva related questions that were asked below, including Diva DLC, Attitude Era Divas and current roster Divas.
Q; What do you think that Lita & Trish & Stephanie be on the disc or DLC?
A: Those three were set to be on disc, but with the leaking of the roster THQ is in scramble mode trying to do what they can to change things up to make the leaked roster look incorrect. This includes making default stars/diva’s DLC and vice versa. It may also lead to guys that weren’t in, but had a model made for them, being included if deals can be signed quickly. Problem with this if THQ gets a new roster approved by WWE then any talent not under a legends deal/ wwe contract will have to be dropped. The date of the roster approval is what allows released talent to still be allowed to be used. For example last year WWE approved Kharma in mid August. Because this required a new roster approval date both DH Smith and Chris Masters, both released August 5th, 2011, had to be removed. This could lead to no Edge and The Bella Twins. Michelle McCool was in WWE 12, despite being released, because she gave THQ permission to use her image. DH Smith confirmed this on twitter last year when asked why he wasnt in he said “I was gone by the time roster was approved. Couldnt use me anymore.”
Continue after the cut for two more question and answers, and two polls on which Divas past and present you’d like to see in WWE ’13..
Q: How close is it to see Nattie,AJ,Aksana,Kaitlyn,Rosa,Vickie be on DLC?
A: I am told it can be close. Vickie and Nattie are almost a certainty as most of the game models used in WWE 13 are obviously copied right over from WWE 12 and Smackdown vs Raw 2011 (Jericho’s model especially) with some some “smoothing over” so it would make sense for Vickie to be in. Crowd chants were recorded for Aksana and AJ, but in the past there have been chants recorded for talent that didnt make the final roster cut.
Q: How many DLC Packs are there scheduled?
A: This year there maybe 5 (which would increase the price of fan axxess). THQ toyed with the idea of 5 last year but it never came to be. I am hearing that right now it is believed we will get Day 1 DLC (with online axxess activation), DLC 2: Diva’s, DLC 3,4,5 would be a mix of legends and current superstars (this would probably include the wwe 12 models of current guys such as, for example, mcintyre, jackson, kidd, etc.) They liked how the multiple DLC packs worked for All Stars.
