Kids, if you're going to fight, please keep it to the virtual ring. Don't do it in the streets. Do it with a controller. No, I don't mean using the controller as a weapon (although, if you're going to, use the pointy bits for maximum damage and pokery*), use it as a conduit for your aggression. That's the X360A after school special finished, now back to the news.
EA Sports MMA is bringing more fighty mixed martial arts action to Xbox Live today, with a demo of the UFC competitor (although it's probably okay to buy both games) available right now from the Marketplace.
Featuring the game's 'Fight Now' mode with two weight classes, the demo gives you Strikeforce champion, Alistair Overeem and former professional wrestler, Bobby Lashley for the heavyweight class and two middleweight combatants - who are primarily Jiu-Jitsu fighters - Jake Shields and Jason 'Mayhem' Miller.
There's also an interactive tutorial to try out and if you share the demo with friends, you can earn yourself a 'Classic' Randy Couture playable character for the full game, which is due to release on October 19th, 2010 in the US and October 22nd, 2010 in Europe.
* X360A does not condone any such behaviour, so if news comes out about someone being savagely beaten to a pulp with a control pad, we accept no responsibility for said beatings. Unless we're dealing them out personally.
