  • Bellator: MMA Onslaught Now Available
    Posted July 5th, 2012 at 10:15 am 4 Comments
    Bellator: MMA Onslaught released yesterday on both XBLA and PSN for $15. The game delivers action meant to be fast paced arcade-style with accessible controls, online play, and a roster of just eight fighters - with the focus instead falling on the create-a-fighter feature. The positive here with a digital download is that a trial version is available before having to make a purchase. Early reports have not been encouraging - and following the disaster of Supremacy MMA (which was also m...
  • THQ Had Been Losing Money on UFC
    Posted June 8th, 2012 at 5:30 pm 12 Comments
    EA Sports picking up the UFC license from THQ was arguably the single biggest surprise announcement to come out of E3 this year. It's been widely recognized for some time now that THQ as a company is in dire straits and - like Take Two and their handling of sports - they have a desire to get out from under the significant costs inherent in licenses. Still a transfer of the license would have been seen as a long shot particularly considering the disdain shown towards EA in the past by Dana Wh...

  • UFC Goes to EA Sports
    Posted June 4th, 2012 at 2:00 pm 22 Comments
    A huge announcement out of the EA press conference as the company has secured the license for UFC which had been with THQ. The deal there was scheduled to run through 2018 but the troubles with the company financially - and their inability to grow the franchise - led them to (as now is known) sell the license to EA with UFC's approval. This despite Dana White's statements in the past that he would never work with EA. EA Sports MMA was a good first effort with some fantastic online feature...
  • Trailer for Bellator: MMA Onslaught
    Posted May 17th, 2012 at 3:00 pm 2 Comments
    The first trailer featuring actual footage for the upcoming fighter Bellator: MMA Onslaught has arrived. The arcade-style representation will naturally bring up comparisons to last year's Supremacy MMA which was an unmitigated failure. It won't be able to escape those negative vibes either given that both have been developed by Kung Fu Factory. Bellator: MMA Onslaught is set to release this summer on XBLA and SEN (PSN).  (more…)...
