Geoff Harrower, Lead Gameplay Engineer for EA SPORTS UFC 2, posted this message on Operation Sports after EA cancelled one of his earlier games. NBA Elite 11 was a basketball game for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 that was cancelled 8 days before release. Developers were under the pressure of an 18-month development cycle, similarly to EA UFC 1 & 2.
We’ve received a lot of questions recently about the new trend that has gone viral in the EA UFC community. More and more users, frustrated with the state of the game, have started to break their game discs in half. Unfortunately, this is not an option for those customers swindled into purchasing digital copies of the game.
