EA's Next UFC Game will be the Best Sim Sports Fighter Ever

It's pretty easy to see why the most recent installments in the UFC video game empire were not exactly flying off the shelves. UFC 2009 Undisputed sold well with the license backing of the biggest MMA promotion around. Over 1 million worldwide copies sold in the first month made it a hit as far as any fledgling sports game series was concerned, especially when your previous attempts at the industry failed miserably (see: UFC Tapout series or Ultimate Fighting Championship: Throwdown). (EA, PS3, UFC , UFC Undisputed 3, Xbox 360)

Seriously glad EA has the license now. Here's hoping they do something interesting with it.

EA is probably the worst company that could have gotten the license.
To them it's all about the money, once they see a game doing well they will completely destroy it with dlc, rushed out sequels, unbalancing multiplayer pre-order bonuses etc.
You don't just get voted the worst company in America and expect everyone to just forget about that.

whatever, EA MMA was had a far better gameplay than the UFC games made by THQ, thats what really matter to me.

Personally my favorite is Fight Night.

The next FIFA will be the best, the next Madden will and then the next Tiger Woods PGA Tou...and so on

Then the ones after that in 2013 will be the best...and again so on

It's the same thing every bloody year with EA Sports

If you pre-order PGA 2013 you get a copy of the book 'Tiger Wood's guide to successful marriage' with the game!

I hope EA getting it means a better game but it's not very hard to top THQ at this point.

EA will ruin the license by rushing to produce a sequel every year
Hufandpuf  +   733d ago
unlike fantasy games, the sports industry changes every year.
NYC_Gamer  +   733d ago
That's still no excuse to rush out some half ass effort with limited improvements

If they ruin the UFC games I'll be one mad gamer!
UltimaEnder  +   733d ago
I have faith in the Fight Night team!
Tonester925  +   733d ago
Fight Night is the best! I wonder if there's going to be another one soon or are they going to wait until Next-Gen like they did with Fight Night Round 3? I remember Insta-Creaming when the replay video for FNR3 released for the Xbox 360

Its not hard being the best when no one is around to challenge EA

In a race between EA and no one else,EA will win.

Hopefully.
But if it's anything like EA MMA, I'll give it a pass.
