I'm not a video game player myself, but I think the fact that two major video game companies, EA and THQ, are making mixed martial arts games has to be considered a positive sign for the growth of MMA. And based on this video with UFC President Dana White promoting UFC Undisputed 2010, the presence of EA as a competitor seems to be motivating THQ and the UFC to step up their game.
"This one has been improved and it's much better than the last one," White says. "There's a lot of things the fans wanted to see. They wanted to see some southpaws and the last one didn't have any. Now there are southpaws and guys who actually can switch in real fighting can switch in the game, too. There's more submissions, more fighters."
MMAConvert.com and BloodyElbow.com have more on why this year's game will be bigger, better and closer to the real thing than last year's.
Note: If you don't get the phony confrontation between White and the interviewer at the end, it's an homage to the real confrontation between John Stossel and pro wrestler David Schultz in 1984.
