Jeff and I spent weeks trying to gank someone's pre-order code for WWE All Stars, the one that gave you access to perpetually evil multimillionaire and master of the perfectly-trimmed beard, Ted DiBiase (as well as his son, confusingly also named Ted DiBiase). I guess we can give up that hunt, as THQ announced today that the Million Dollar Man and son are now available for purchase in the game's DLC store on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $1.99 (or 160 Microsoft Space Dollars).

The Million Dollar Man: Great WWE villain? Or GREATEST WWE villain?

Even more exciting is the announced upcoming schedule of DLC, which features a number of classic wrestlers the likes of which any old school wrestling fan should find themselves uncontrollably squeeing with glee over. Go ahead and get your squee face ready, I'll wait.

We good? Okay.

July 5th will see the release of the "All-Time Greats Pack," which includes the Legion of Doom (Hawk and Animal, for the uneducated), Jerry "The King" Lawler, and Chris Jericho. That pack will retail for $4 (320 MS points).

Also on July 5th, R-Truth will be made available as a free download. Because honestly, who would pay money for R-Truth?

On August 2nd, THQ will take a trip down to Cobb County Georgia and release the "Southern Charisma Pack," featuring the face of law and order in the WWE, the Big Boss Man (as well as Michael Hayes, and Mark Henry). That pack will retail for $3 (240 MS points).

Whether or not more DLC will come down the pipes following the August release, THQ isn't currently saying, but between the Million Dollar Man, the Legion of Doom and Big Boss Man, I don't have many complaints about the selections they've made. That said, if we don't get a "Many Faces of Charles Wright" pack, featuring The Godfather, Kama "The Supreme Fighting Machine," and Papa Shango, this whole WWE All Stars endeavor will have been entirely for naught. For naught, I say!

this is the closest I've ever been

Mark Henry an All Star? 
 
Also pretty sure you linked the wrong Micheal Hayes, though this one sounds more interesting.

#6 Edited by lockwoodx (2479 posts) -

Greatest WWE villain would be the Undertaker before he became "old man walking" and that grunge biker crap.

edit: I should add they have a winning engine once again, to the likes of AKI quality (EFFU JackPac). Anything they do with this engine that's wrestling related I'll be interested in, even a TNA title. Also those prices are great. 5 dollars is what an action figure cost back in the day.

#7 Posted by CapnMikeM (15 posts) -

I would like to see Kamala, George 'the Animal" Steele, Moon Dogs, The Samoans, Tonga Kid, Tito Santana, Don Muraco, Demolition (just so the road warriors can whip their ass), Black Jack Mulligan and of course Sky Low Low & The Haiti Kid.

R-Truth is free DLC? So the WWE is saying he's not worth paying for?
 
Conspiracy!

#11 Edited by sixpin (1287 posts) -

I totally bought The Million Dollar Man last night! Looking forward to some more of these legends of WWE DLC. They are priced fair enough and it reminds me of some of my old action figures I had as a kid.

Also, we need a Mick Foley pack; Dude Love, Mankind, and Catus Jack!

Little Jimmy is too busy spending all of his money on new hats for John Cena to wear.

I wish they had of put the million dollar man one up for literally a million dollars. Even just as a joke for a few days before they put it down to the real price. I think Ted would have liked that.

R-Truth was awesome in TNA. I caught a WWE show recently and just was saddened by the whole conspiracy angle they have him working.

On a side note, unless they add some more Achievements I've already S-Ranked this game, and won't be going back to it just to play some new characters. Even though I would love to throw the Liontamer on some people.

I think he's a good R-Truth

#18 Posted by TadThuggish (906 posts) -

These are great deals. $1 per character is just right and, unlike most DLC, doesn't try to extort you. (Hey Capcom, how you doin'?)

#19 Posted by TadThuggish (906 posts) -

p.s. let's all give Alex Navarro a round of applause for being a blogger not compelled to write a big paragraph about how "WRESTLING SUCKS NOW" and "FUCK BRYAN DANIELSON HE WASN'T IN THE 80s WHEN KOKO B. WARE WAS KING"

R-Truth is really popular right now.  He's even been allowed to beat Cena on multiple occasions.

#22 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

man, the Million Dollar Man should actually cost one million U.S. dollars.

#23 Posted by MrMuscle (446 posts) -

Im a bit sad that i got tired of this game so fast. It was fun but got a bit stale i thought. But seeing them adding Y2J is pretty awesome. Im guessing R-Truth and Mark Henry are added because they are part of a couple of big current storylines in the WWE.

#24 Edited by RenMcKormack (1074 posts) -

This is the answer I believe you were looking for.

#25 Posted by Foil1212 (444 posts) -

Well, this is awesome.

#26 Edited by BacardiExpress (19 posts) -

We don't care and this game sells penuts! actually penuts sell more than this recycled rubbish. A game that does just over 250,000 units is terrible and SVR series can only reach close to a million.
 
They need to stop making wwe games for a year or 2 and work on a new engien for it cause come next gen it's all down hill for wwe games.

#27 Posted by Agent47 (1894 posts) -
@BacardiExpress: Have you played All Stars?It is a mayor departure from the SVR games.I hope they make a WWE All Stars 2.Because SVR 12 is already doing the whole "new engine" "new animations" "new etc etc."  All Stars is just too much arcadey fun to go back to SVR games.

Current R-Truth is better than DiBiase Jr has ever been.

#30 Edited by Vlad_Tiberius (204 posts) -

Legion of Doom and such tag teams shouldn't be in this game, because this game puts more emphasis on the singles wrestlers. Hell, there aren't even tag team moves in this game, therefore don't expect to see the Doomsday Device.

#31 Posted by zombiesatemycereal (426 posts) -

@PerfidiousSinn: somebody gon get got!

#32 Posted by zombiesatemycereal (426 posts) -

Also, Mark Henry and Michael Hayes being in the same pack is pretty funny.

I want the many faces of Shawn Michaels.  They already have Early HBK, but I want... 
Rockers Shawn Michaels 
WWF Champion Shawn Michaels 
DX Shawn Michaels 
Commissioner Michaels 
2002-2004 Return Shawn Michaels 
End of Career Shawn Michaels.

If this already hasn't been added to the extensive collection, somebody really needs to Photoshop Ryan's head onto The Million Dollar Man's body in one of those pictures.

Now I'll have to get IRS to do my taxes so I can actually get this.

Ryder or Riot

#37 Posted by C0V3RT (1377 posts) -

I love that this game is still being supported with DLC, but this game needs some DLC match types to breathe new life into it.

#38 Posted by lord_canti (1507 posts) -

would this be good R-truth rapping for the little jimmys or will it be crazy paranoid R-truth?

#39 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

BAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Money, money, etc.

#40 Posted by SnakeEyes327 (334 posts) -

Hmm, how about adding Sin Cara? I'd love to see how crazy they could make his Flux Capacitor in this game.

Its ridiculous that Jericho wasn't in the vanilla game to start with! Still don't understand that decision.
