On his recent visit to India, Sheamus revealed in an interview with NDTV’s website, Gadgets 360º, that he is disappointed with his low rating in the WWE 2K17 video game. The Irish-born, WWE superstar, ranks a lowly 83, which is much below most of the other popular superstar.
Sheamus not only feels that he should have been rated higher but also explained, why he thinks that the creators of the game did it. He said, “I think it should be higher. I think it should be way higher than that. I think the 2K guys are slacking a little bit.”
“I think they're upset with me because I said I wanted to do my own mo-cap and the fact [that] in the past my entrance wasn't the way it should be on television, it should be better than that,” added the former WWE champion.
However, Sheamus was all praise for the revolutionary WWE-based video game, which has already gained immense popularity.
Speaking about it, he said:
“I’ve seen the evolution of video games from the time I started in WWE, with me myself involved, seeing this game and seeing how much attention to detail and endless hours developers and engineers have put in to replicating, every superstar, male and female, past and present, in the largest roster ever, I think its incredible.”
The Great White is a huge fan of the FIFA series of football video games by EA Sports. However, according to him, WWE 2K17 is better, because it allows for a greater degree of control and has a smaller roster.
He stated, “I think overall we're better than FIFA. I think FIFA will never be able to do that [give that level of control] because they got too many players and too many teams. While [in] 2K [you] have access to the entire roster in Raw, Smackdown and NXT. It's highly possible that we can do that.”
Sheamus also revealed that he has previously worked in the making of earlier WWE video games where he did motion capture work for other stars. “I’ve done it in the past before I made the roster, [I] did the Honkey Tonk Man one time, years ago in a Legends game but I have not [recently],” he said.
The superstar expressed the will to do more of this kind of stuff in the future. “I want to [do more motion capture] though. I think we all should do it. Eventually, we should all do our own mo-cap. I think that's the next stage,” stated Sheamus.
