James McSweeny Announced as one of Four bonus Characters in Undisputed 2010
 
Quote:

Video game retailer GameStop today announced that British slugger James McSweeney (4-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC) is the first of four playable bonus characters in the forthcoming "UFC Undisputed 2010" title.

The remaining three bonus characters will be revealed one per day on March 2, March 9 and March 16.

Customers can secure access to these bonus characters by pre-ordering the game with GameStop either in-store or online. According to the company's website, "a code and instructions to unlock the GameStop exclusive fighters will come packaged with your game."

The retailer engaged in a similar program with the THQ's debut UFC-related title, "UFC 2009 Undisputed," when Ryan Bader and Efrain Escudero were offered up as incentives to reserve the game early. The two fighters were then eligible for all consumers to download free-of-charge 90 days after the initial release date.

The critically acclaimed title went on to sell 3.5 million units and won the "Best Individual Sports Game" at the 2009 VGA Awards, beating out the likes of "Fight Night Round 4," "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10," and "Wii Sports Resort."

Available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation3, "UFC Undisputed 2010" is set for a May 25 release.

"'UFC 2009 Undisputed' opened the door for us to further share the UFC brand with videogame and fight fans around the world, and we cannot wait to return this spring with the release of 'UFC Undisputed 2010,'" UFC president Dana White stated in the official announcement of the new game.

Odd as he doesn't seem entirely too popular... I'll be interested to see the other three though, hopefully they aren't just TUF Alumni :\ I bet one of them is Kimbo.

Exactly what I thought - he doesn't have the biggest fan-base ...

Dude, Kimbo's already in the game! http://www.associatedcontent.com/art...g2.html?cat=19

I knew he was doing Mo-Cap for it, I figured they'd make him "Bonus" though for the sake of selling more new copies, not TUF alumni.

I know exactly why they're doing it because anyone who watched the show saw how arrogant and cocky that guy was even though he showed hardly any talent and they want to see him get KO'd repeatedly again and again. Him alone in the game justifies the 60 bucks for me, I hated that guy so much.

Is he even on contract with the UFC? I don't think he is. He doesn't show up on their website.

McSweeny is an ass. I hope this is a joke because that guy doesn't deserve to be anywhere near that game.

Haha, Rolles Gracie made it too?

Pat Barry is surprising too.

But, a roster with more characters is always great.

big nasty better be one, this seems like it should have been announced as roy, and not mcsweeney. mcsweeney was sad in all his fights, and a dick, roy won all his fights however unconvincingly in a few, and was a dick. shouldnt this thread be "Big Country Roy Nelson announced as bonus character?"
