From one side of the morality coin to the other, Crave Entertainment today also announced plans to publish World Championship Poker 2: Featuring Howard Lederer.
As the game's title suggests, Crave has signed up a number of poker professionals to populate the game. Howard Lederer, also known as "The Professor," leads the pack. Joining him are Greg "Fossilman" Raymer, Clonie Gowen, Amir Vahidi, Paul Darden, Robert Williamson III, Matt Savage, and Annie Duke. The company expects to sign additional pros in the coming months.
Features of WCP2 include:
Exclusive to the PlayStation 2 version of World Championship Poker 2 is support for the EyeToy USB Camera, which allows online opponents to see each other as they play, in addition to supporting text chat.
World Championship Poker 2: Featuring Howard Lederer will be available for the PlayStation 2 this coming Fall with an MSRP of $19.99.
This is great news for poker fans, especially if Crave manages to implement a realistic system of reads and tells. That, along with real players and online play, will make this one heck of a bargain at twenty dollars.
