It’s only been out a month but EA Sports UFC can already be had for $40. Amazon has the game at that price already for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Gamestop also has it for $40 right now though it’s unclear whether that is just online or also in-store. In some cases retailer deals are only available until a certain supply has run out, so those interested will want to take advantage of the offer quickly. [Update] Best Buy, Walmart, and others have followed as this isn’t just a retailer-specific deal but a full-on price drop.
EA Sports UFC has been a huge disappointment for the company, both in terms of critical reception (an embarrassing 69 on Metacritic) as well failing to reach sales expectations. At $40 though it might be worth some consideration as it partially alleviates one of the biggest issues which is the lack of content offline and how that relates to the value of the product. That it was designed to be more of an arcade representation of the sport, rather than a realistic one, won’t change no matter how much the game costs. Check out the full review here. A significant patch is expected in the coming weeks but EA won’t comment on what to expect from that.
