I've got to say Bryan Williams has always been my favorite person within THQ. He got a lot of flack back in THQ days and rightfully so at times. But he was never as clueless as Cory and the others. He gave us some amazing moves and entrances that a lot of fans asked for. And he's an actual fan so it helps us out overall. I still miss all those HCTP moves and then some. But with the amount of mocapping they've done it should help ease the pain over the years. And from what I can see, the gameplay indeed looks more arcade like, at least to me. I'm down with the new pacing and camera angles. That kick Neville hit was awesome and I'm definitely giving that to my CAW. Roman Reigns looks extremely life like from the glimpse I saw. Even Tyson Kidd looks good and I'm happy he has his tights. Zayn's moveset was the best thing about the video for me. I didn't however like the hair clipping when Roman and Orton locked up but it's ok since I'm sure it's not finished just yet. Overall I'm still pumped for this new experience. Thanks for posting.

I want a New Gen Console just for this game. It looks like it'll be actually decent this year.

I saw the video earlier this morning on IGN.  I really enjoyed seeing it, as Bryan Williams always does a great job of giving us info while obviously being a huge fan.  The gameplay footage was awesome, and it looked as though Sami Zayn had two OMG moments.  One was a plancha and the other was his outside tornado ddt through the ropes.  I only wish Bryan was able to do more livestreams before the game is released.  I'm super psyched for a week from Tuesday when I can play it for myself.  I know having the PS3 version won't be as good graphically, but I still wanna see how this compares to WWE 2K14.  Between the new grapple system and the amount of mocaps, the game should still be a great upgrade from past games on PS3.  I have to say, I am impressed with the improvements 2K has made to the game in realism and presentation this year.  I'm just shocked they haven't shown off more of the game, as all these upgrades should be a bragging right for them compared to the yearly phoning it in by THQ.

Hate to burst your bubble but, Last Gen don't get the new gameplay improvements.

Wow, so the new grapple system and stamina won't be in the last gen versions?  If that is the case, then the old gen really is WWE 2K14 with the new roster.  I'm surprised that 2K would completely shaft the PS3/Xbox 360 owners like that!  I can understand graphics not being revamped to concentrate on the new systems, but the gameplay should be the same on any version.

Yeah, all 360/PS3 get is an updated roster and lighting system with toned down contrast on the models. I agree, everyone should be playing on the same great engine but they're doing their best efforts to try and elevate the fans towards buying it on a Next Gen console. Hell, I don't even have one yet but I sure as hell know I'm not getting it on Last Gen, so I'm going to wait till December.

It sounds like getting the new gen would be preferable, but I probably won't be able to get it right now.  I guess WWE 2K14 volume 2 will have to do until I can upgrade to PS4.  I can't understand the logic, as I'm sure many people like me can't afford to buy the new gen systems specifically for one game.  Oh well, I know I will buy the new version eventually, but this news definitely sucks big time.

Agreed. I actually did break down and trade in the PS3 system, games, and years of gaming accomplishments for the upgrade mostly because of "WWE2k15." While I now wait until November 18, "Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor," "Thief," and the PS4 version of "Injustice: Gods Among Us" will have to suffice. But, yes, "next" (technically, current) gen consoles aren't even a year old yet and companies are already next to dismissing the users of older consoles? Nice touch, 2k. 

Good informational videos and thank you for sharing them. Waiting to hear more information on Creation Suite and, other than that, just waiting on Nov. 18.

The main reason I'm still getting WWE 2K15 on PS3 is because I got a scratched used copy of WWE 2K14 last year and traded it back in.  If it weren't for that, I might wait to get it for PS4 so I wouldn't lose value on the PS3 copy.  I completely agree with your post above though, the current gen systems aren't even discontinued yet and they are being discarded faster than yesterday's garbage.  I saw that the PS4 and Xbox One versions were supposed to have more "in ring psychology", but from the info 2K has released, you'd think the gameplay would be the same.  I guess I overlooked the fact that more "in ring psychology" was code for screwing over all current gen system owners.  They weren't very specific and informative about the older versions being different gameplay wise.  I'm guessing that was on purpose so some would blindly buy it without knowing.  Between the older gen losing the gameplay, over 40 wrestlers and My Career Mode, I'm surprised they even released those versions.   As soon as I can, I will do the same thing you did and trade in my PS3 and games so I can upgrade and get the better version of this game.

The NXT arena looks awesome! Also, Red Arrow looks awesome. Noticed the NXT Championships fits around Neville perfectly, just like it does in real life. No floating belts.

Hope the belts works great for CAWs too.

Maybe it can be done both ways? Dunno really. It's not a deal breaker to me as I'm just glad it's in to begin with.
