Boxing gloves - Image 1 With the closure of EA Chicago, some thought that the night may have ended early for the Fight Night franchise. Not so, says EA as it announces Fight Night Round 4 for the Sony PlayStation 3 and the Microsoft Xbox 360. Along with the comprehensive list of all-time greats, the devs promise us that plenty of improvements will be added. Controversial ex-champ Mike Tyson will also return here. Details in the full article.

Mike Tyson - Image 1 When EA Sports closed down its Chicago studios, fans of the acclaimed Fight Night boxing series got worried that they won’t have a pugilist sim to pound on for the next few years. Fortunately, that’s not the case as EA Sports Vancouver has taken over the reins and is set to deliver Fight Night Round 4.

Currently in development, Fight Night Round 4 will be released on the Sony PlayStation 3 and the Microsoft Xbox 360. It’s due out in 2009, so you might as well use that waiting period to brush off the old moves in previous installments like Fight Night Round 3.

EA Vancouver promises a deeper-than-ever level of realism with style and technique differences among boxers. Gameplay and graphics will now be knit more tightly as an engine with true-to-physics visuals will be used.

To boot, the roster of champs in Fight Night Round 4 will include a comprehensive list of all-time greats including controversial power puncher Mike Tyson. The brawler hasn’t been seen ion a video game for more than a decade, making this comeback a double whammy. We’ll keep you posted for more on it.
