(Agree? Or, disagree?)
I own the original Ultimate Fighting Championship on the Sega Dreamcast, and I downloaded the demo for UFC Undisputed 2010 on my PS3.
The May 2010 NPD sales numbers revealed that UFC Undisputed 2010 sold 222,100 copies on the Xbox 360, while the PS3 version sold 192,300 copies; taking fourth and fifth place in the NPD Top 10 for May.
While you may be thinking those numbers are good(and I do myself), those numbers were a significant decrease in the number of units sold compared to UFC Undisputed 2009. PASTAPADRE has an excellent article discussing the sales numbers from last year to this year, and says, "THQ saw a year-over-year drop of 59% for the first month of UFC."
As I said under the "Chart Info" section, the Xbox 360 version of UFC Undisputed 2010 saw a significant sale price of $39.99, I first recorded on May 30, around 5:15PM. I recorded it at $39.99 from May 30 through June 3.
On May 30, I recorded the PS3 version of UFC Undisputed 2010 with a sale price of $53.77. The first time I recorded the PS3 version reaching the sale price of $39.99, was on July 4, 36 days after I first recorded the Xbox 360 version going on sale for that price.
Like Red Dead Redemption, I think it is interesting that the PS3 version of UFC Undisputed 2010 has exclusive content, that the Xbox 360 version does not have, yet the Xbox 360 version did outsell the PS3 version overall in May.
Now, perhaps the exclusive content can account for the PS3 having the smaller sales decrease percentage wise, year-over-year; and perhaps the exclusive content in the PS3 version is why Amazon.com didn't drop the price as quickly for that version.
Here's footage from a match I recorded playing the demo, and some pictures from UFC Undisputed 2010's official page as well:
If you purchased UFC Undisputed 2010, which version did you purchase? If you're a mult-console owner, did you purchase the PS3 version for the exclusive content?
Is UFC Undisputed 2010 a game you would recommend to other PS3 and Xbox 360 owners? Or, would you recommend them find an older version of it instead?
