I listened to the entire interview...... There really wasn't any new information at all. The interviewer asked about demo details and game mode details and stuff like that but Brian responded with the "can't talk about that yet" to just about everything. The interview really wasn't worth the 27 minutes. Here are the key points I took from it, to save you the time.....

-Gameface included
-DLC will be included (No specifics on what or who or when)
-EA hasnít settled on a demo release date yet
-One punch knockouts will be factor based (Fighter ratings, level of stamina, position, etc). Extremely unlikely to see a weak striker win by one punch knockout.

Agreed. Nothing to see here.

There are some things we will have to wait it seems to find out about. Specifically about the submission system,the clinch system, the parry system etc. Just going to have to wait until the demo drops it seems to get any real sort of information or gameplay.

For those of you that aren't aware...

The only questions that are allowed to be asked are about features that have already been announced. They can't share everything, yet. Every once in a while you get a little nugget here and there.

Another thing. While most of the hardcore OS guys already know about the things mentioned in this interview, there are many that don't even know the game exists, or Bruce Lee is involved in any way.

I totally understand the frustration though, but you have to keep it in perspective. I've asked plenty of questions, but if they can't be answered, there is no need to throw up an interview that has a bunch of "I can't answer that right now" or "We will reveal something about that soon" type of stuff.

Why does it seem like EA is hiding this game? Why not show us but 1 trailer when the game is coming out in 2 months? Show us some gameplay, I'm tired of screenshots.

There have been 3 trailers. The Show Ps4 is coming out in a little over two weeks and there have been 2 trailers and only about 2 minutes of actual gameplay shown.

EA UFC is 2 months away. Thats not hiding the game. Its called a marketing plan/rollout.

There was also a 60 minute stream of the game on IGN though. But yeah the marketing plan is just being extremely slow. They seem to be releasing a developer diary every 3 weeks. There should be about two of them left, plus maybe it will be on the show floor at E3 a week before its release. It's just hard to be patient is all aha. Need MLB the show to pass the time.

When was that stream? It had to be in the last two weeks because I remember nothing from Sony at the two month mark.

E3 wont really matter because there is a decent chance the demo will be out by then.

I just dont get the impatience. The game comes out June 17 no matter what. If EA is hiding the game like Bad Intentions said....dont buy the game. If all they show is hype trailers and screenshots by release...dont buy the game. Thats what people did with Live.

I swear I say this with every major release but no one has ever provided evidence to show that providing minutes or hours of gameplay months before release helps sales. If anything, people take that gameplay and nitpick the hell out of it.

If anything, I think the EA Sports UFC team has given us WAY more info than any other next-gen sports game so far. While it isn't much, they started rolling out the roster reveal months ago. And like aholbert said, they've released multiple trailers. I think they're pretty proud of the game judging by the trailers.

The stream was on april 14th, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ze5PqY-Ap8 so about what, 21 days? Until release. MLB the show is a different situation, as they have a PS3 version to market and sell first before showing off the next gen version. NBA2k14 did the same thing. EA UFC however has no previous iteration of its own game to worry about competing with. As a fan of MMA it's hard to be patient for information is all aha. No biggie.

I agree. FIFA, Madden, and especially NBA, we didn't get to see much of anything before the games released.

I just hope the game will have a CPU vs CPU option.

EA MMA didn't have that.

Fight Night Champion did.

Surely, that is something they will include.

Can't see the video at work, but what did they mention about the Fight Night series in this video? Really interested to see if Boxing ever comes back to consoles.

As of right now, there are no plans to bring back Fight Night.
