Yeah it just doesn't make sense for 14 to be on next gen consoles.

The game should be out in September and the new consoles are coming in November.

It's possible EA makes some sort of next-gen hockey game to launch with the new consoles but it will likely be very bare-bones and not nearly as fleshed out as the current games...if it happens at all that is.

They made versions of that with madden and FIFA when the 360 came out if I remember correctly

'07 was the first year on 360 and it totally change the series, they used a new engine for the 360 version. Not sure why they would have to make a "bare bones" version considering they've had the specs for the next gen consoles for awhile.

Very small detail, but for beagm, to be able to scroll through a player's WHOLE career stats, not just the past 4 seasons, would be good.

When the next gen consoles come out, will you still be able to get games for the 360?

I think they should add the NCAA leagues/divisions and the Frozen Four.

They won't

The players would just be named 'position name and number' because the NCAA doesn't allow the likeness of their athletes in the game

They could very easily use fake names/likenesses and call the league, "College".

The roster editors could get through it quite easily and rename/rerate the prospects. Or just make it "fake prospects".

I'll buy it on release, just like every year. $70 for hundreds of hours across many months of play-time is good for me.

Hasn't new hitting physics been one of the main features for each of the past 3 games...?

All I gather so far is that the crowds still look the same as they do the past few years, still wearing incorrect jerseys and the same clothes while doing the same animations. Stupid thing to notice but if EA isn't gonna fix something like that, I don't trust them to make any huge fixes. Obviously the game is still a ways away, so I hope they prove me wrong.

I hope the next gen marks the return of 2k Hockey. NBA 2k13 is on a whole other level compared to any sports game out there, hopefully they can bring that to the hockey gaming scene.

EA has released essentially the same product the last 3 years, AI has seen almost 0 improvement and in this day and age they have decided that sticks can freely move through legs and you aren't allowed to move your feet and deke at the same time.

Littman is running the show again at EA NHL this year so that excites me.

I really hope the entire potential system, contract system, and "GM Brain" is overhauled in this year's game. If they just add minor crap then I am going to join those who plan to skip this version.

On the other hand, it could turn into MLB 2k13, which is decent, but The Show absolutely blows it out of the water.

I still pop in ESPN NHL 2K5 occasionally

What I really want to see is the creation zone expanded...obviously this should be a bit down on the priority list...but playing as much EASHL as I do...the player customization and team customization is extremely lacking.

No reason every jersey template that's already in the game..and every logo..NHL,AHL,CHL,Euro shouldn't be available in the creation center...plus some custom ones...

That's the biggest news right there. I have faith in NHL 14 now.

By that screenshot, looks like they added more detail and shading in the jerseys, the crowd still looks like ****.
