The hype for EA Sports MMA has been disappointing…until now. The EA Sports Live Broadcast mode may change everything. This is one feature that could change the way we play sports games online forever and give EA MMA that extra knockout punch.
EA Sports debuted the EA Sports Live Broadcast mode at E3 and people haven’t stopped talking about it. The Live Sports Broadcast will come first to EA Sports MMA video game in October. The new feature will go far beyond just matching you up against another fighter online or creating ranking for online fighters. This new feature will put you in the world of fighter, promoter, and champion.
I still don’t understand how this thing is going to work. Are they going to have commentators on standby just waiting for matches? Will they have top announcers or will it be a bunch of interns working at EA Sports’ headquarters? Who are the promoters and how do they get picked? There are a lot of questions surrounding this mode, but the buzz for it has completely changed the anticipation of EA Sports MMA.
EA Sports has been working on their MMA video game for what seems like an eternity. Trailers and simulated fights in the game are often shown during Strikeforce broadcasts. The game has looked all but done for months, but yet it hasn’t been given an official release date until now. EA Sports MMA will hit the shelves on October 19 just in time for the holidays.
No matter how good or bad EA Sports MMA is, the talk will be about the Live Broadcast mode. If EA can get this right (that’s a big if), the Live Broadcast Mode could be a big selling point in Fight Night 5 and later Madden 12, NHL 12, etc. I am not too excited for EA Sports MMA, but I am stoked for the EA Sports Live Broadcast mode.
