E3 2012 - Update: EA and UFC
It was announced at an E3 press conference that E3 is teaming up with UFC to launch a brand new EA Sports franchise. All we got to see so far was a teaser trailer with zero gameplay footage or in game graphics, but EA Sports is a solid developer and if anyone can capture that bone-crunching, high-tension action of MMA, it's those guys. They did it with football, soccer, baseball, basketball, golf and boxing. They made golf exciting!!! Seriously! I think MMA fans (and there are a lot of them) would appreciate an amazing high-profile UFC game starring all of their favorite celebs in the sport. This is going to be a major blow to rivals THQ, who currently own the UFC brand in gaming but EA is a powerhouse and things don't look good for the little guy. Stay glued for any more information about this game and I will keep updating throughout the week.
