    It may be practically dead at this point but it remains important for EA Sports to support the UFC title that launched in June. Having opened to weak sales, and dropping off the map since, the goal isn't necessarily to capture new consumers (the damage has already been done, interest waned and competition too fierce now) but display a commitment to what is hoped to be a long-running franchise. The changes that have been made since release in now two patches demonstrates the company has ident...

    A significant update was released for EA Sports UFC today that on the surface attempts to make the gameplay somewhat more realistic while also adding three fighters to the roster for free. The patch notes mention most notably a number of adjustments to stamina and damage. That isn't going to solve concerns over value due to the lack of content offline (recent price drop can help in that regard) or that the CPU fights the same no matter who is being used and does so super-aggressively, but...

    EA Sports UFC has struggled in terms of review scores and word of mouth and now that the sales numbers have released the impact of the poor start to the new franchise for the company can be further examined. First month sales for UFC combined for only 278K copies which explains the price drop that went wide last week. THQ's UFC series took a nosedive following the first release in 2009 - something partially attributed to the lack of roster turnover, competition from high profile games, an...

    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-sp...

    Despite all the issues with EA Sports UFC it is a fairly well polished product from a technical standpoint. However the game does have plenty of awkward situations where animations conflict and also some rare cases where really bizarre stuff can happen. There are a number of videos out there featuring visual oddities, but this one stands out for the variety of them and how the added commentary contributes to it being so funny. ...
