Favre has given way to Sanchez, Tom Brady is healthy again, T.O. is in a Bills uniform and the Dolphins... are still in Miami.

Here's Madden NFL 10 to show how far they've come and what to possibly expect this Fall on the field but more importantly in the videogame.

Electronic Arts Signs Fedor Emelianenko And Renato Sobral For EA Sports MMAElectronic Arts has announced that mixed-martial arts fighters Fedor Emelianenko, Renato "Babalu" Sobral, and Gegard Mousasi will be headlining the roster for the upcoming EA Sports MMA. Of the three fighters, Fedor is -- by far -- the most popular. One of the best heavyweights in the world, Fedor dominated the competition in the Pride, Dream, and Affliction organizations. Though he has one loss on his record, it was due to a technicality and he wasn't actually defeated. Getting a fighter of this stature, presumably as the cover athlete, is a huge deal for EA Sports MMA. In today's press release, Fedor said:

"I have fought all over the world and I am excited to be in EA Sports MMA because this game is going to show the global appeal of mixed martial arts. I know MMA fans have been wanting to play as me and pitting me against any opponent. Now they will have their opportunity."

The signing also has significant ramifications in the MMA world. UFC president Dana White has spoken harshly about EA Sports MMA and has made it known that athletes in his organization should not appear in the game if they want to continue to make money with his company. White also covets Fedor and desperately wants him in UFC. It will be extremely interesting to see if White will make an exception and pursue Fedor, despite his involvement in EA Sports MMA. Although White is a very stubborn man, he also knows that he can make a ton of money with Fedor (imagine Fedor vs. Brock Lesnar!!!).

THQ's UFC Series Eventually Coming To Handhelds And Wii

UFC 2009: Undisputed was designed from the ground up on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but the success of the franchise means THQ is keenly interested in expanding UFC to other platforms. THQ confirmed these plans as part of their first-quarter earnings call this afternoon.

THQ said future versions of UFC will expand to both handhelds and Wii. The company did not specify which handhelds, nor a release schedule for UFC appearing on these platforms. THQ said the UFC series is to become an annual franchise for the publisher, which means another UFC title is coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next year, too, with "new features and game modes."



Fight Night Round 4

The boxer creation tool in Fight Night Round 4 is pretty robust, which makes it no surprise users have started uploading some interesting creations for the rest of the world. Fight Night Round 4 lets users create a boxer and upload his likeness, statistics and other nuances to a global distribution service, letting lazy folk like myself poke around in the wee hours of the morning for a laugh or to.

What's I find? Some pretty good ones, actually - Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat character, a strikingly close likeness to Kanye West and the one, the only President Barack Obama.

If you want to see what they all look like, keep reading.

Fight Night Round 4

Broken multiplayer was the biggest concern about Electronic Arts' potentially game-changing decision to release downloadable content for Fight Night Round 4 in September that lets players ditch the analog-based fighting controls for a more conventional button experience. The analog controls help restrain traditional button mashing; adding button-based boxing could potentially nullify all that work.

I asked EA last night whether the company would include an option for players to filter out the Fight Night gamers who made the switch to button-based play. Such a filter would make the problem irrelevant for most players, even if it created a schism in the user base. Unfortunately, EA's answer was a little coy.

"We will be making announcements surrounding the specific implementation of the button controls over the next couple of months," said an EA representative over e-mail. "We just wanted to inform users that a button update will be coming at no cost."

Though EA's statement doesn't provide the clarification I was looking for -- "yes, we we are, hurray compromise!" or "no, we're not, let the players begin vocally rioting" -- but to say there will be further announcements about the implementation of the button controls is definitely encouraging news; it means EA is aware of the issue. Now, we just need to hear what it plans to do about it.

Are you concerned?

My favorite part? Being able to conduct trades and adjust depth charts from a computer or iPhone (there's an app for that!). Will you be competing in an online franchise?

Grand Slam Tennis Nintendo Wii Rafael Nadal

What with Wimbledon in full swing, it's prime tennis season for fans of the sport, and EA is betting that Nintendo's Wii MotionPlus will bring intensity and intelligence to Grand Slam Tennis, a game that allows you to inhabit the avatars of over 20 tennis legends on the court.

According to reviewer Greg Bemis:

"EA’s Grand Slam Tennis has the dubious honor of not only being a new franchise for the publishing giant, but one that takes advantage of  Nintendo’s mostly unproven new attachment, Wii MotionPlus.  So far, some games, like Tiger Woods 10 make excellent use of the little plastic nubbin, while others do not.  Grand Slam Tennis falls somewhere in between."

Check out the written review and video here.









Check out these new scans from EA's Madden NFL 10. Look at this dude. He's pointing. Look at them and pretend you're already playing the game and the football season has already begun.

Peter Moore Talks About Signing Fighters For EA Sports MMAFight fans will remember that EA announced that it was getting into mixed martial arts gaming at its E3 2009 press conference. EA Sports MMA looks to capitalize on the burgeoning popularity of the sport. One of the biggest challenges to EA Sports is building a recognizable and sizable roster for this game. Zuffa, LLC currently owns the rights to the majority of fighters appearing in UFC and WEC, the former being -- by far -- the most popular MMA organization in America. In a recent interview with Gamasutra, EA Sports president Peter Moore revealed his strategy for building a roster in EA Sports MMA:

"We are looking obviously at every fighter that we can, that we feel is applicable from a quality level and then analyzing their image rights, and if they're available and we want them -- then we'll get them. If they're not then we'll move on to the next fighter."

The problem with this strategy is that most fighters sign away their likeness rights when they commit to a large company like UFC. This leaves EA Sports MMA with the option to go after the few MMA fighters that control their rights, talent working for Affliction MMA, and lesser-known fighters competing in smaller leagues. Even if the gameplay turns out amazing, it will be tough for EA Sports to duplicate the amazing success of THQ's UFC 2009: Undisputed without a large roster of popular fighters. While I don't doubt that EA will sign several popular fighters, I doubt that it can serve up a roster comparable to the one in UFC 2009.

For you MMA fans in the house, what fighters would you like to see in EA Sports MMA? I'm hoping for Carlos Newton, the master of Dragon Ball Jiu-Jitsu!
