E3 2010: UFC 2010 Sales Underperforming

IGN:THQ isn't thrilled with the sales of its latest fighter, UFC Undisputed 2010.

The publisher released an updated financial outlook this morning, noting initial shipment numbers for the game weren't as high as it expected. (E3, EA, PS3, PSP, UFC Undisputed 2010, Xbox 360)

Online Code = Underperforming - YES.
Incremental Upgrades not worthy of a $60 purchase = Underperforming - YES.

Seems like the data is correct as should be.

also
dont forget to add that THQ thought that customers were retarded enough to fall for the Capcom tactic (making you pay for something thats already in the game) They're charging for people to pay 5$ to add the online multiplayer

Online Code
If it hadn't been for this I would have purchase day 1.

If you're going to attempt to compete in the currently very niche market of fighting games, you gotta bring your A game and absolutely nothing else. That was not done with UFC 2010.

wait..another $60 for a "lean" animation?!!
UFC 2009 is good enough for most people out there is why. You can't make this shit an annual release lol. what they hell are they thinking??

some games, scratch that, NO game needs an annual release. none.

Sorry but I'm not buying a title that has done nothing to upgrade from the previous years...Sports titles I might buy every other year but I'm not dishing out $60 each year for new rosters.

fk annual release. Come 5 years later and see Gran Turismo numbers lol. GT numbers are worth 10 years of annual sales.

I decided a couple of months ago that I'm avoiding anything but must have titles that play the 'buy from this place' and get more than if you 'buy from that place' game. DLC is starting to piss me off too. Seems like everything is now being designed to rip gamers off who have already plunked down lots of cash for games. Sick of it!

I was going to buy it yesterday, but ended up getting Red Dead Redemption instead.
