I'm getting the X360 version. Every place said the release date was today, but I guess the demo will have to hold me over one last day.

I might pick up the pc version since it's the only platform i have right now. don't know if it's worth it though since i have'nt really read much about the different versions of the game. is the pc version supposed to be good this year?

Debating between Wii, PS2, or PSP, I have to make a decision quick though, because I need some hockey to hold me over

I'm not that big of a video game nut, but I liked what I saw so much from this game that I actually bought a 360 just to play it. I'll be up at BestBuy tomorrow morning to pick it up. This game and training camp ought to quench my hockey thirst til Oct 5.

Amen PlayMaker... not sure if you are keen on the online play, but lemme know I would be happy to rough you up online.

Just read the review at ign.com and they truly feel its the most realistic hockey game ever. Of course like every video game, its not perfect, but it sounds like its gonna be pretty darn close and it might actually be a challenge winning.

just to let everyone know, the ps2 and pc versions will have the same features as the next gen (inc. skill stick, advanced AI, create a play, and AHL lisence). the only missing parts will probably be a few options in create a team/player and some online features


pretty good for only 30 bucks

VERY good news for PS2 users. I was concerned about the nex gen not being there in the game.

Thank god. I was expecting it to just be like the last 3 years' games and just be NHL 05 with updated rosters.

I'm getting it on PS3 tomorrow. Might not be able to play it untill later, but I'm all over this game like syrup on pancakes. NHL2k7 and 2k8 are the only games out (2k8 came out yesterday) and they're both unrealistic arcade types with little intelligence needed. I swear I played the same game in 2k7 every time I played.

I know that won't be a problem with this game as I hear the AI is revolutionary.

I'm more excited than a Freshman watching his first Field Hockey game.
