    this could be one to watch. the business side of it will be very interesting to see how it goes because it hasn't been tried in a game like cricket before. hopefully they have developed the actual cricket side of the game well enough too as that is what a lot of the game is based on.

    If this was late March/early April, I'd say they're taking the ****.


    ...Unique Selling Points (USP)

    ...Personally, my thoughts are that this game is being rushed (8 months into development and going into beta... "won't be long") and that the gimmicks most probably won't be great. It will probably be like the boardgame "Game of Life" 'Will you get married? Yes/No', 'would you like to build a house?' etc... pointless really.

    Something to keep an eye on, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

    It'll be interesting to see what happens in terms of licensing.

    And if this is a success, might we see a Rugby game using the same concept??

    Here are the features for September-1.They are regarding tournaments and teams.

    FEATURES : SET 01


    Friday, September 01, 2006


    Tournaments and teams


    • There are 10 user-playable countries in the game.
    • Each country has all major domestic teams
    • The user will be able to choose one of the players available from the domestic team and lead him into the international team or create his own player.
    • The difficulty of the game will be inversely proportional to the ranking of the player. It will be easier to play as a top-ranking international player but more difficult to play as a domestic start-up player.
    • The following number of tournaments are guaranteed to be available in the game for each country:
    • England: 4
    • Australia: 5
    • India: 6
    • Pakistan: 5
    • New Zealand: 3
    • South Africa: 3
    • Sri Lanka: 3
    • West Indies: 3
    • Bangladesh: 2

    Fictional Governing Body: its tournaments


    There is a fictional Cricket governing body in the game named Fictional International Cricket Organization (FICO).
    • The following international tournaments are available in the game that are overseen by FICO:
    • World Championships
    • U-19 World Championships
    • 20 over championships
    • Mini world cup
    • Asian Trophy
    • African-Asian Championship


    In-game awards


    • The FICO international cricket awards are held every game year. If the user player is a captain of his international team, he gets a right to vote for each of the nomination categories.
    • There are also domestic awards for each country that are not only for international players but also for domestic players. There are various categories of awards.
    • Winning an award adds to the morale of the player and boosts PR level that will be useful for getting lucrative sponsorship offers.
    • Winning International awards significantly boost PR effect compared to winning domestic awards.


    Software Development Kits: Modding experience enhanced


    Gamebience is committed to enhance gaming experience. For the first time, we are giving an opportunity for the modding community to seriously take part in the game and decide what they want and what they do not want in the game by releasing a Software Development kit for modules that we think will be appropriate to hand over to the community.

    • An SDK will be released shortly after the release of the game that will allow experienced modders to modify the rules of the existing tournaments and as well as add completely new tournaments using the Software Development Kit. Using the SDK, any modder who knows basic C/C++ language will be able to create/modify tournaments in the game without any difficulty.
    • The in-game awards system is also be modifiable. More in-game awards can be created, categories can be added or modified.

    Next feature set on Monday, 4th September 2006 - Overview of the game, various key factors of the player and how they influence the game, overview on the Player Evolution system.(For PlanetCricket this shall be released on the 2nd and 3rd of September itself.)

    All names, characters, organizations appearing in the game are purely fictitious. Any resemblance to real life names, characters or organizations is purely coincidental.

    Seems like they are trying to implement too much in the first version. Some things look unnecessary like marriage and building a manson. Don't have a lot of faith in this, but I'd love for them to prove me wrong.

    Think I will stick to good old International Cricket Captain 2002.

    I find cricket games weather on PS2, PS3, PC, Xbox, Xbox 360 very boring sure they are ok to play a little bit but then they just tend to be un-interesting not one i would buy but maybe hire for a nosey.

    You gotto be a big lover of cricket to appreciate it

    I know what you mean - they do get monotonous and boring - like the game in real life itself

    You just gotto weather the boring grind - await the new ball - and strike - when required :p

    This is why i love cricket games

    You can be in zombie mode bowling ball after ball to Lara or Tendies, as they romp in hundreds hundreds and hundreds - every ball is a replay - then that magical moment happens and u hear the bails or a miss timed shot - the bedroom explodes - GOT IM GONE, **** OFF YOUR OUT, GOT IM.....OOH GOT IM......GOORNE....BYE BYE, GET OUT , YOUR GONE

    Will be great in BLIC - you'll be in zombie mode, not concentrating, just bowling monotonously, line n length, then after 30mins when ur brain is elswhere thinking about dinner, food, beer, n chicks - a lil knick from the AI, and u gotto pounce on the reflect matrix system, whilst ur brain is along way way from the action

    JUST LIKE REAL LIFE - you gotto take ur chances - especially in the slips!!!!!!!!

    No time for mind slips
