UPDATE - August 17th, 2009: Pricing Change

After further review and taking into account feedback from our community, the team has decided to release the upcoming Champions Pack for only 480 Microsoft points for XBOX LIVE gamers and $5.99 for PlayStation Network gamers. The pack will be made available for XBOX LIVE Gold subscribers on August 20th while Silver and PSN gamers will see the pack on August 27th.

Original entry

Electronic Arts revealed that its first downloadable boxer pack for Fight Night Round 4 will be available in late August on XBOX LIVE and the Playstation Network for 800 Microsoft points and $9.99, respectively. The downloadable boxer pack will include Oscar De La Hoya, Vitali Klitschko, Wladimir Klitschko, and alternate versions of George Foreman and James Toney. Named the Game Critic Awards “Best Sports Game of E3 2009”, Fight Night Round 4 has been winning over reviewers and fans since its release on June 23rd.

In addition to the boxer pack, EA SPORTS™ will also be releasing a free downloadable game update at the end of August. The free update will include additional trunks, gloves and shorts, as well as a free button control scheme that will allow gamers to use face buttons on the Xbox 360 and PS3 game controllers to throw punches, hooks, uppercuts and haymakers. A new demo featuring the button controls will also be available on XBOX LIVE and the Playstation Network by early September. The 12 round demo will feature Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali as playable boxers.

"We are extremely excited to be able to add Oscar and the Klitschko brothers as part of our roster," said executive producer, Dean Richards. "As three of the most globally recognized names in the sport, they are an important addition to the Fight Night Round 4 lineup."

Guys, due to the price change however, the dates have been pushed back another week. Don't ask me why...3rd party mumbo-jumbo

XBL Gold - Aug 27

Doubt I'll get it. Haven't played FN4 in weeks. Shouldn't have to spend more money on a game I spent 65 bucks on.

That's why its optional you don't have to buy it.

You know I see alot of guys complaining about the downloads that they should be free etc. I wish they where free as well but you know what if I can spend $5 or $10 to freshen up a game I really enjoy instead of buying or renting something else then so what I am happy. I play Call of duty , madden and Fight night all the time and to get 3 or 4 new maps in Call of duty or some new fighters & trunks in FN4 for $10 keeps the game fresh. If we had all the fighters from begining there would be nothing to look forward to.
I am guessing they release another fighter pack by end of year with Hopkins , pizza hut Sugar Ray & maybe Holyfield.

I just don't see the reasoning in buying it. When Madden like you said another EA game has updates for free. I wouldn't have paid to get Michael Vick and Brett Favre in the game. The game would be great if they had a majority of the good names in boxing from the get go. But it doesn't matter too much because I haven't played this game in like 3-4 weeks.
