Facebreaker Demo For PSN, XBL

Earlier this year, EA Sports revealed they'd be working towards producing more casual-oriented titles for the mass gaming crowd, and one of them is Facebreaker. It should remind you of the golden days of Mike Tyson's Punch-Out, and if it doesn't, you ain't old enough.

Anyway, if you're interested in a little face bustin' - yet still lighthearted - action, you should pay attention to either the Xbox Live Arcade or PlayStation Network within the next few weeks. A playable demo of Facebreaker will hit the Live Marketplace on July 31, followed one week later on the Network on August 7 (no, we don't know why there's a 7-day difference). In this demo, players will be given a bit more freedom, as you'll be able to generate your own custom boxers for use in the ring. Best of all, if you go to great pains to make a true champion for the demo, you can eventually import him into the final version of the game when it launches. This is good, old-fashioned high-impact fun, as EA's Peter Moore implied:

"Arcade boxing takes me back to my roots in this industry, and this game signals our shift to adding more approachable fun to our product lineup."

Indeed so. We shouldn't forget our roots, no matter how far advanced this industry gets. All the amazing games of today take at least some inspiration from the classics of the past...

eh, I think I'll pass on this one. It seems okay, but not enough to keep my attention for very long. Especially since Im still on MGS4. Extreme is so freaking hard!
