A post on the German THQ forum made by a THQ forum moderator indicated that the PlayStation 3 version of WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2007 had been cancelled. It was also noted by several keen forum posters that the PS3 version of the game had gone missing from THQ.com.

Speaking to Pro-G this morning a THQ rep gave the following statement:

"The next instalment in our perennial SmackDown franchise is slated for release across multiple game systems this holiday. The highly anticipated WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2007 is scheduled to ship for Xbox 360, PSP and PlayStation 2 in November. Consistent with our goal of delivering the highest quality content across all next-gen platforms, we have decided to postpone the debut of the SmackDown series on PlayStation 3 until the holiday 2007 timeframe."

That seems pretty clear cut that the PlayStation 3 version of WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2007 has indeed been cancelled, leaving the franchise to make its next-gen debut on the Xbox 360. PlayStation 3 owners will need to wait until holiday 2007 to get their WWE fix.
