    EA Sports to release MMA-themed videogame, "EA SPORTS MMA," in 2010

    THQ isn't the only videogame maker entering the mixed-martial-arts game market.

    Electronic Arts Inc.'s EA SPORTS brand will issue "EA Sports MMA" in 2010 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation3 platforms.

    The California-based company, which has delivered massively popular videogame series such as "Madden NFL" and "Tiger Woods PGA TOUR," today announced some basic details of the game.

    The announcement comes just weeks after THQ released "UFC 2009 Undisputed," the most sophisticated MMA videogame ever produced. The game, which features the likenesses of more than 80 UFC fighters, has won rave reviews from the videogame and MMA media. The title is part of a multi-year deal between the UFC and THQ.

    Last week, at the 2008 Video Game Awards on Spike TV, UFC President Dana White announced "UFC 2010 Undisputed" will be released next year, signaling what possibly could be annual releases of the highly anticipated title.

    EA Sports, meanwhile, will work with developers EA Tiburon on the "EA Sports MMA" title.

    "Fans have been begging EA SPORTS to get into the cage, and 'EA SPORTS MMA' will put them in control of the sport’s unique combat experience while finally, in an ...interactive experience, capturing the raw intensity that has made mixed martial arts one of the fastest growing sports in the world," EA SPORTS President Peter Moore stated. "We're ready for the fight."

    Few other details about the game were revealed.

    However, sources tell Frank Shamrock and Frank Trigg are two of the likenesses expected to be in the game. Current UFC heavyweight Randy Couture, who spent much of 2008 in a contract dispute with the UFC, is also a rumored fighter in the game. Dozens of additional (non-UFC) fighters are expected to be in the first release.

    EA Sports, founded in 1982, has produced additional sports titles geared around NCAA football and basketball, the NBA, NHL, FIFA and NASCAR, among others.

    Except, knowing EA, they're going to buy an exclusive UFC license and kill all the competition.

    if they buy the whole property from THQ something great might come out of it.

    Although they will probably **** up the lobby system even worse.
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    They will probably title it "Randy Coutures MMA 2010"

    Its sad that Randy is missing from the THQ game.

    I play this game with my kids. We usually fight the upcoming UFC card. However we do have our own fighters in each weight class that we train and compete against each other.

    *edit* we should start a UFC Undisputed League. XBOX360 only though.

    Knowing EA this is going to be a realtime strategy game where you save up enough resources to buy things like "Mark Ranter" and "Reality TV show".

    It a real challenge controlling your fighters, and all the resource gatherers at the concessions, and making sure you get the cursor back on Rogan before the AI makes him say something really "amazing"

    Not in the case of EA. Any money that company makes goes towards furthering their shitty business practices.
