UFC Undisputed 2010 Seeing 'Slower Than Anticipated' Sales

UFC Undisputed 2009 was a big hit for THQ, selling over a million units in the U.S. during the first month alone.

First off... THQ - You came out with a major online patch to fix the quitters in 2009 and you broke the online... then you have the nerve to announce that anyone who wants to rent your game to test it out to see if you actually FIXED the online will get a $4.99 slap in the face with your stupid online code.

Secondly - What did you add to this game? The only noticeable change I saw was taking out the button mashing and added a few fighters... Not enough to charge for a full price yearly update. The graphics looked the same and you made a few tweeks that could of easily been added with a patch.

I'm glad sales are less than expected... you deserve it with your handling of the first game and the combination of the lack of new features.

You could say the same about most other sports game. EA MMA is the remedy. Competition is what this genre needs to keep moving forward.

I agree 100%. Bring on EA... just a shame they don't have UFC fighters.

Pennywise you an idiot UFC 2010 is really good and they added a lot of new features, tons of fighters, great graphics, and when fighting there is a lot of does little things that make the fighting more real.

looks like you downloaded the wrong demo now go back and download the 2010 demo and see the difference

for Last EA MMA is going to fail if you like the who FNR4 controls then you will love MMA all i know is iam skipping it
