    Currently in development by Big Ant Studios set to be released in November 2018.

    Looks like an interesting acrade-type game which will get me right into the hype of BBL08.

    Most prominent feature so far are the enlarged heads which I like, adds to the whole Big Bash feel, not trying to be too serious.

    Can't imagine this game being more than $60, and I imagine the price will be even lower as I'm not expecting this to be loaded with a vast array of content but we could be surprised.

    Have been looking forward to a Big Bash game for a while so let's hope it's a good one!

    Don Bradman Cricket/Ashes Cricket is a current game which isn't too bad either on PS4, or for the management side of things there's also International Cricket Captain which you can pick up on PC via Steam.

    Never really like sports simulators but i have always like arcade type sports titles. I'll probably have a look at the switch release

    You might not like it but this is the peak of Australian game development.

    $89 pre-order at EB. I guess they need to recoup the cost of official licenses, but that is ridiculous.

    Looks like it could be fun but I'm not going to shell out $90 for it.

    Aussie sports game love that "cycle through teams as they run out" scene in trailers.

    They need people to bite and have a go at a reasonable selling price.There will be a few that will pay top dollar for it ,I just ain't one of them

    That's on the retailer, not the developer or the publisher. $99 is RRP in Australia. $50-60 of that goes back to the publisher/developer, platform royalties and distribution costs. EB list at RRP, other retailers slash the RRP and rely on moving more units. Don't forget sales tax that goes into the retailer's markup. Wanting a game for $50 means you want the retailer to give it to you for nothing. It has nothing to do with anybody being reasonable, it's just how things are.

    Looks like they're trying to make back as much money as possible on the face scanning equipment they invested in

    Could be some fun, but it’s a game I’d pay $30 max for.

    Love the Dark Souls bat buff. It's the dark souls of cricket games.....

    I'm getting it as my kids will love it regardless of how well it actually plays.

    Assuming this is just the cricket version of FIFA Street/NBA Playgrounds?

    Hopefully its not as basic as that Stick Cricket garbage.
