Codies gets Ashes Cricket

PC, PS3, 360 game due summer, ahead of a Wii version

Codemasters has unveiled plans to release an official Ashes Cricket game. This is the only way England can beat Australia.

Ashes Cricket 2009 is fully licensed by the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board), the MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club, the world's most famous cricket club and owner of the Ashes urn) and Cricket Australia.


This provides the game with all the official players, kit, stadia - including Lords and The Brit Oval - and equipment from this year's npower Ashes Series.

The game is currently being developed by Transmission Games, responsible for Brian Lara 2007 Pressure Play (PSP).

Ashes Cricket 2009 is due this summer for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. A Wii version will follow later in the year. And that's the one we'll be watching closely.
