Yea I hear it's the same old, but buggier, with the skillstick, and still no widescreen. Not worth it.

I don't know if the PS2 would be better because both PS2 and the PC are the same game, they somehow had the genius to group PS2 with PC instead of making use of the PC and give it the real game.

The requirements are really ridiculous for the PC, you can use real old graphics card and it would be great, I don't think there's any game aside from NHL08 that supports anything that doesn't have Shader 2.0, nevermind Shader 3.0

Anyways, if you're a PC user then NHL08 PC is the only thing you get. With the PS2 you might get a 2k8 version, not sure if they port one for the PS2 but it's bound to be vastly superior to NHL08 PS2.

Not owning a gaming console, I keep to the PC, in the future if I have the money I might consider getting an XBox360 to see what the actual game is like, but as of now I don't have the funds.

12-1-2...what level are you playing at? In last year's version the game was a joke if you weren't at least playing in the 2nd highest difficulty level (all star?) You must be playing on Pro or easier...not much fun in whipping the computer every game.

I just finished a game between the Rangers and the Wolf Pack. I played as the Wolf Pack and won 3-2. It was a ton of fun. Some intresting stats, Straka scored 52 seconds into the game. Bourret had the GWG and an assist, I loved playing with that guy. Purinton had 3 penalties, none of them fighting. Still trying to figure out how Purinton has a 73 rating.

If you're wondering why the Pack beat the Rangers, it's because I played on Pro, I'm gonna bump that up to All-Star or Superstar and come up with some sliders before I start my Rangers dynasty.

To anybody that doesn't have a 360, what are you waiting for? Make the purchase, you will not be disappointed.

One of the things that is also blowing me away about NHL 08 is that the AI is so good, I find myself having to play defense first just like real NHL teams need to do to win.

Excellent. And anyone who still has a PS2 really needs to upgrade to the 360!

I suppose I'm just going to have to wait.

I've had a potential downfall and went 7-7 now losing 5 in a row. My offense just isn't showing up, and I put Montoya in for the last loss and he did decent in a 3 goal give up but my offense just wouldn't budge. My games are always Physical and the 7 wins consisted of of at least 75% 3+ goal games or more.

Dubinsky got hurt before, and my power went out, so it didn't save.. I started again and re-played the games and Dubinsky got hurt again on that same type of hit. They keep taking him from me So I was forced to bring up Bourret to center the third line in between Cally and Avery.

Montoya isn't good in this game really though, at least from what I've seen..

I don't see how there's really any debate. Even most PS3 owners say that the 360 is the better system as far as games are concerned. It's not even close. The 360 is a great gaming console. NHL 08 is but one of at least a dozen killer titles.

I have a Wii... and it's a blast when I have people over every other weekend for poker/beer pong/drunken Wii nights.

But because of NHL 08... I think I'm gonna have to give in and get a 360.

Should I bother with the Elite? Or is the regular one for $350 good enough?

Other than HDMI, the white vs. black, and 20 gig vs. 120 gig hard drives, what other difference is there with the Elite?

Do I want the 120 gig drive?

yeah i know but if you have a pc capable of playing quality games at a high level it seems that buying a 360 is a waste bc you can lay the same game s on your pc for the most part where as a ps3 the games are totally different

NOt if you have a nice big HiDef TV. Then a 360 is a no brainer. 24" monitor vs 61" HDTV is a blowout.

Any reason why his PC wouldn't look as nice on the 61" HDTV? Mine looks great on my 112" screen. That said, the live features and overall enjoyment of the 360 is greater (to me) than PC gaming on my HDTV. Still, 360 over PS3 is a no-brainer imho.

Most people don't have their PC anywhere near their TV

But that doesn't mean they can't move it, or run a long cable, or use another computer to for connecting to their TV. I have a PC that sits hidden behind the couch to use with my projector. That said I use my 360 a whole lot more often.
