Microsoft is looking to get into the motion control gaming market hard with their Kinect for Xbox 360. While we’ve seen some Kinect hacks that make the hardware highly sought after, the library of launch games for the motion controlling system is quite slim. Before the hardware was actually released one of the games we were looking forward to the most was Fighter Uncaged from Ubisoft. From the looks of the trailers, this game allowed players to utilize their entire body to fend of baddies and participate in all sorts of illegal street fighting.
Unfortunately, bad reviews surfaced not long after the game’s release that has sent Ubisoft back to the drawing board. However, while they might not be making a fortune off Fighters Uncaged, it seems that they may be losing a fortune. Recent reports have surfaced that say the UFC will be suing Ubisoft for using the word’s “ULTIMATE FIGHTING” on the back of the box, as you can see above.
Apparently, UFC says the use of their trademark in association with this game is hurting their brand by . While it seems a bit outlandish, it does make sense considering it’s hard not to associate the words “Ultimate Fighting” with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
We’ll keep you posted as this one pans out.
