I know, which is why i REALLY need to see what World is capable of from the onset.
From the press conferences, I feel like the general story if World is that there's going to be updated moves, and the sound for entrances will be mp3-based, meaning you can import you own. Also, unlike Returns, due to copyright issues, virtually none of the wrestlers will be tied to real wrestlers, and as of now, no new match types have been announced.
This is why I believe it's going to be the exact same game.
Now, I am pretty good with PC Mods, as I've used a lot of NBA2K12 modding tools for Steam. That said, a couple positives I believe are here if we can get the right application for it: Basically we can have any intro music you want, and potentially any image on the title screen, we can have any logo, without making it from scratch, so ROH, NXT, WWF, WWE, Backlash,CoorsLight, whatever. What this probably also means is completely customizable arenas.
In short, we can change the look and environment of World, but at no point will the gameplay be any different, from what I've seen thus far. This also means that basically, the roster will require a massive overhaul, and if the movesets aren't correlated to any particular wrestler, that means there are 300 slots that are just used up with no real edits, unless they allow us to edit main roster movesets, which hasn't been announced.
