THQ has launched the official site
for its upcoming game UFC 2009 Undisputed
. The launch was cleverly timed to take advantage of the hype surrounding tomorrow's bout between BJ Penn and Georges St-Pierre at UFC 94. Mixed martial arts fans will find some interesting features on the site. According to THQ's press release:
"The site will also offer an extensive community experience. Branded as The Octagon, the community portal is slated to feature in-depth information about UFC 2009 Undisputed, including developer blogs and other exclusive content. In addition, readers may participate in discussion forums, as well as take advantage of contests and polls surrounding UFC’s Pay-Per-View schedule."
The site actually looks pretty cool; while it's not as slick as Platinum's new digs
, it's certainly a cut above the typical video-game promotion site. As a gamer and a fight fan, I'm looking forward to THQ's updates. UFC 2009 Undisputed
is slated for a spring 2009 release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
So who do you have for UFC 94? BJ or GSP? They're both phenomenal fighters. I'm rooting for BJ, but I don't think he can pull it off. War BJ!!!
