Just finished watching the live demo of EA Sports MMA “Live Broadcast,” and I got to say it was a lot of fun. Very similar to a real live event broadcast, each gamers’ promo reel was shown, then you saw the ring entrances, the intros, followed by the fight and post-fight stats at its conclusion all with Mauro Ranallo and Mayhem Miller commentating (I assume the commentary will be handled in-game when it ships). Once that fight was over, it was onto the next one on the card just like a real show.
I wasn’t sure about the mode when I first heard about it yesterday, but after seeing it in action I can definitely see a contingent of fans embracing it with open arms.
Good stuff from EA Sports MMA at E3.
