EA Sports E3 Info: NBA Live and UFC
The 2 biggest stories from EA Sports for this E3 is the return of NBA Live and the acquisition of the UFC license. EA has scrapped the NBA Elite fiasco and has decided to return to it’s flagship NBA-entry, NBA Live. No other info is available yet, but it’ll be a challenge to win back fans from the NBA 2K series.
The biggest news though would have to be the purchase of the UFC license from a hurting THQ. THQ sold the rights for an “undisclosed” amount to EA, which is now a multi-year and multi-product agreement. Personally, I enjoyed the EA MMA game over the UFC titles that THQ made, so I for one am looking forward to what they are going to do with the license.
