5:30 PM on 06.01.2009 // Samit Sarkar

It looks like THQ might have some competition for its well-received UFC 2009 Undisputed game. At EA's E3 press conference, EA Sports president Peter Moore unveiled the newest addition to the EA Sports stable of games, EA Sports MMA (presumably, it's a working title).

The title is in development at EA Tiburon, the team behind EA's Madden NFL, NCAA Football, and Tiger Woods PGA Tour franchises, and it'll be available in 2010 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Hit the jump for the press release, which doesn't really say anything more than what we just told you. If you'd like, you can head over to the game's official Web site and sign up for updates or hit the forums.

Holy shit, App Store. The copyright infringement is real. I didn't buy it, because I'm scared it'll make my iPhone explode and because the comments say the game's a generic zombie title with fake and misleading screenshots.

Playing Halo 5: Guardians, got REALLY invested in this one match. It was intense from beginning to end and I was using A LOT of Power Weapons because it was so fun. We were literally seconds away from victory when the internet cut off. So disappointed. :(
