Do you guys think Bruce Lee is a gimmick to sell copies of the new UFC game?

Studies have shown that it is. Thoughts?

Of course it is. Does it matter, though?

No because I want it, but I can't justify paying full price for a game I only want to play as one character in.

To some degree, I don't think it's going to push a lot of copies because it's UFC, UFC fans will buy it regardless, and I'd assume UFC fans are interested in Bruce Lee. Might get some old school Bruce Lee movie fans buying it, but don't think it's a complete gimmick cause the game looks good and doesn't need a gimmick.

Bruce Lee is seriously in this game? I don't think he could do most of his moves in UFC lol

Where is Chuck Norris?

Regardless if it needs one, a gimmick is still a gimmick.

Maybe so, but it's not needed and EA knows this so it's possible they included Bruce Lee just to include it but it would be cool to fight as Bruce Lee, I don't think it's going to do much for additional sales

Now, if Chuck Norris was in the game, lol, it would probably sell a million plus just for that.

You don't have to pay full price you can unlock him in all copies of the game by completing the career in pro mode.

The pre order just unlocks him right off the bat.
