I think the answer to the why both teams are wearing white is pretty simple. Current-gen NHL teams wear white on the road. Previous era Jets wore white at home. Thus currently, the default "Home" Jets jersey is white and for all other current teams, away is white. Since Jets were home and Anaheim was away, both teams defaults were white for that match and with EA being too lazy/complacent to notice/care, the result is a video with both teams wearing white.


(Recent success has caused the improvements in the NHL series, from year to year to be minimal... yes, the game is still great, but if you've bought it every year from 07-12, are the changes to the title really worth the ~$350 you've shelled out to EA in that course of time, since the skill-stick was first applied?)

Yes, you still pay full price for the game. You can download it three days early, but with the length of time the download is likely to take, it's doubtful you get more than 2 days out of that "early" access. It applies to all EA Sports titles for the year, but if you're like me and only play NHL (maybe FIFA, but certainly not a first day purchase where something like this would help) it's SO not worth it.

I 100% agree. The last NHL game I bought was '09, and that was was even reluctantly as I had friends who wanted to play online. I am getting '12 for the simple reason the Jets are in there. Will I get '13? I highly doubt it unless there is substantive changes to the game.

I figure I stay in and play NHL 12 tomorrow and it will cost me 25 bucks, a lot less than going out to the bar.

When I play against the Jets I don't have the logo on the center ice. Just blank. How did you do it?

It's good for all EA games as well as 20% off all downloadable content and free premium web content. So if you play other EA games then it can be somewhat beneficial.

NHL 12 Midnight Launch w/ Evander Kane - Sept 12th

If you wanted to get NHL 12, your best bet is to get to Future Shop in St. James for the midnight release on the night of September 12th. You'll get a custom Jets cover and get it signed by Kane and then buy the game at midnight. Seems pretty cool! Here's a picture of the cover.

Kane will be at the St. James FS @ 9:30pm. First 250 people will get a Jets cover signed by Evander Kane. You then wait till Midnight to get the game.

I'll personally wait until the game is in stores, and get a jersey or something signed by Kane when I see him eventually. That is way too long of a wait for a game.

I only waited for a game once. GTAIV... that was worth it.

Hah, yeah he'll be there. From what I understand they'll give you the insert or whatever before midnight (I think he's there from 9:30 to 11 if I heard correctly) and then you can buy the actual game at midnight. Not sure if you get the Stamkos cover in addition to the Jets one or what.

Of course I probably shouldn't be giving EA any money for putting out a subpar product, I just have to pick this one up for the Jets.

I like the idea of getting a Jets cover to replace the regular cover with Stamkos... waiting for Kane and then waiting for the game... hmm.. like the wife says... "That'll make for a long Tuesday at work!" lol I guess I will have to think about it.

I'm going to be there. I used to work at that Future Shop so I'll have plenty of people to talk to to kill time! I also caved and bought the season pass. I'm about 7 games into my BAP career, playing for the Wheat Kings. Really liking it so far! Played one game online and of course the other guy quit when I went up 3-0 with 4 minutes left.

I'm guessing the special edition Jets cover will be available for XBOX as well? I wouldn't mind picking it up, but I'm not hardcore enough to go at midnight.

It's not like it's Halo 4 or anything

Cool video, but that's not the right horn. Doesn't sound anything like our horn, which is too bad, since it's the one they've used since the 90s (yes, they brought it over from Winnipeg Arena).

Pretty sure it's still the Thrashers' horn
