The Line Drive 12/13

  • At the VGAs on Saturday night it was NHL 10 taking the “Best Team Sports Game” and UFC 2009 Undisputed taking “Best Individual Sports Game”. That represents the second straight win for NHL and a win for UFC in its debut year.
  • With UFC 2010 Undisputed releasing on May 25th I would expect EA Sports MMA to take advantage of that and release first. Early April would be a comfortable landing spot.
  • Rarely do I come across an article as ridiculous as this one. Amusing read just for how ill-conceived it is. The author believes that EA Sports may want MMA to fail so that Strikeforce would back out of the licensing agreement therefore somehow opening it up for EA to get the UFC license.
  • Some additional info is starting to come out for Madden Ultimate Team. The free downloadable add-on for Madden 10 should be out in January. It sounds as though it will be tough to compete with people who just pay money for cards unfortunately. IGN has a hands-on preview here.
