  • Fight Night Champion has been added to the EA Access Vault
    Posted October 10th, 2018 at 7:00 pm No Comments ╗
    Fight Night Champion was added to the list of backwards compatible titles on Xbox One back in May. At the time it was unclear when, or even if, FNC would find itself available in the EA Access Vault for subscribers. While Skate 3 had done just that being moved into the Vault after several months had passed following its introduction to backwards compatibility, NBA Jam: On Fire Edition has never made its way to the subscription service making it seem that licensing may have led to complicatio...

    Last year prior to E3 a handful of titles were rumored to be getting backwards compatibility on the Xbox One, and while some of them did come about later it was a letdown when it became clear that Fight Night Round 4 had been either delayed or scrapped from those plans. Today though an even more recent boxing game - the last one to have released on consoles way back in 2011 - officially became backwards compatible. Fight Night Champion can now be played on Xbox One by those who already ow...

  • Fight Night Round 4 among the next wave of backwards compatible games for Xbox One
    Posted May 23rd, 2016 at 9:45 am 3 Comments ╗
    There hasn't been a boxing game available on the current generation of systems but it appears that's about to change based on info that has gone out early through Amazon's retail pages. Fight Night Round 4 will be made backwards compatible for the Xbox One along with Skate 2, Burnout Revenge, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and some others next month. The official announcement likely wouldn't happen until the Microsoft E3 press briefing on June 13. The backwards compatibility for new games co...

  • #9 of 2011: Fight Night Champion
    Posted December 14th, 2011 at 2:45 pm 5 Comments ╗
    EA Sports took a risk with Fight Night Champion making it their first ever M-rated title. In a sense they had to do something creative as boxing games simply haven't been reaching the wide audience that they used to. The 'Champion' story mode was definitely intriguing but short - while other critical areas of the game ultimately failed to impress.┬á (more…)...
  • Fight Night Champion Arrives on PSN; New Pricing Model Offers Modes Separately

Over on the Xbox 360 currently only the full game can be bought ($30 on both consoles).┬á (more…)...
  • Fight Night Champion Second Patch Released

    The second patch for Fight Night Champion which was detailed here last week has been pushed live for both the Xbox 360 and PS3. As seems to be the case with everything Fight Night related the initial response has been sharply mixed. Many of the adjustments that had been made through the 'Tuner Updates' had been rolled back and re-worked with the patch. Ironically what was at first said to be a return to original stamina levels is anything but as heavy drain - particularly the additional ...
