July 7, 2009 – Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) announced today its initial Downloadable Content (DLC) plan for Fight Night Round 4. Recently named the Game Critic Awards “Best Sports Game of E3 2009”, Fight Night Round 4 has been winning over reviewers since its release on June 23rd.

The first DLC pack, which will be available for free to both Xbox 360® and Playstation®3 users by early August, will include a new training gym, new gameplay sliders, as well as a host of new equipment that can be used for outfitting boxers. Xbox 360 users will also receive an exclusive alternate version of Sugar Ray Leonard in their first DLC pack, courtesy of Pizza Hut.

EA SPORTS™ will also be releasing a free downloadable game update by early September that will allow gamers to use face buttons on the Xbox 360 and PS3 game controllers to throw punches, hooks, uppercuts and haymakers.

“The depth and variety of new content we have planned this summer is going to make one of the most critically acclaimed games on the market even better,” said senior producer, Dean Richards. “Among the new content in development, our new button control scheme will give fans a choice for how they want to throw punches in the game. We strongly believe that the refined Total Punch Control is the most intuitive way to throw punches in Fight Night Round 4, but we also want fans of the franchise to have an option.”

Fight Night Round 4 is currently available for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game system from Microsoft. This game has been rated T for Teen by the ESRB, and 16+ by PEGI. For more information, log onto http://fightnight.easports.com.

so will the buttons have the same damage as the control's or not?

I'm thinking the buttons will most likely be CONFIG 3 from Fight Night Round 3, which ultimately makes it even worse for my opponents.

I hope its config 4. I can still deal with 3 though. kinda sucks cuz ive gotten used to the tpc now. oh well this is good in the long run because i was ranked in top 200 on fnr3, now i can be again on fnr4. :)

its a smart business move by ea. yes buttons are a preference because its what i used on fnr3 and completely owned on. but i have gotten used to the tpc. but im glad ea woke up and realized putting the OPTION of button config is a smart move in the sense of sales.

Yeah this is great.

No new boxers, but a few sliders which won't do anything, and a training gym.

All for a great price of £4.99.

You are paying extra for things which should have been in the game in the first place. Screw EA.

I think if TPC taught us anything is that "button mashers" is not exclusive to Buttons. TPC there are stick mashers and there is NO difference.

This button mashing BS excuse has been laid to rest.
