- THQ announced new details surrounding the company's retail incentive programs in the United States and Canada for SmackDown vs Raw 2011. Bret Hart will be a playable character for consumers who pre-order the game for the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 3 at Best Buy in the United States, as well as at any major retailer throughout Canada. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 system owners may also acquire Ministry of Darkness entrance gear for the Undertaker with purchase at Toys R Us. In addition, three alternate attire options - t-shirt, suit and referee uniform - for Randy Orton will be available for consumers who pre-order the game on any platform, while Walmart will offer a Tribute to the Troops playable arena with purchase for all platforms. Retail incentive programs for other regions, including Europe, are scheduled to be announced later this year.
