We knew United Front Games had brought UFC champion George St-Pierre in to help with the development of Sleeping Dogs, but we didn’t know just how involved the martial artist was. In a new behind the scenes video courtesy of IGN, St-Pierre is shown going through animations with key development staff, tweaking small details and even play-fighting with them to brainstorm ideas. It’s pretty neat and partially explains why the combat in Sleeping Dogs feels so awesome. The open-world action epic hits in August for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

THQ has told Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter that it sold its Ultimate Fighting Championship franchise to Electronic Arts because it failed to break even on UFC Undisputed 3, which shipped 1.4 million units – 600,000 or so units short of the 2 million copies needed, reports Gamasutra. During EA’s E3 press event this week, UFC president Dana White took the stage to announce the transition of the UFC’s license to EA Sports, which will see the firm publishing multiple games, through a multi-year exclusivity deal. In the wake of the sale, THQ’s San Diego studio was shut down.

Well, this is kind of like that, except THQ’s taking a little longer on that whole building part.
Wait, you haven’t done that? Oh. Well, um, neither have we.
