In a bit of a stunning move the folks at THQ are offering early access to the demo of UFC Undisputed 2010
for those members who register at the game's community site
. It's a bit of an odd move as normally you'd have to pre-order the game at a particular outlet instead of just handing over some personal details. The demo will be coming out this Thursday but if you sign up now you can play the game before your friends (assuming they don't know about the deal).
The demo allows you to play against foes online or play by yourself in the exhibition mode with one of four of the game's Light Heavyweight fighters (Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida, Rashad "Sugar" Evans and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson.). John is heading out to Vegas tomorrow to check the game out so be sure to check back next week for his impressions of the rest of the game.
