Players can one-time loose pucks, score from their knees, knock pucks out of the air and lift a leg to fake a shot on goal. A new 360 precision passing mechanic delivers control over the speed and direction of passes so players can bank passes off the boards or play the puck into space for teammates to skate on to it.

Review:

Scrums, facewashes, and chirping is in the game. You can take a guy like Chris Neil and just bug the hell out of Sidney Crosby, and if there are no fighters or big guys on the ice, Crosby will try and fight you, and he may even turtle(turtle button). After whistles you can shoot the puck at the goalie or facewash someone and a big guy will come in and punch you or hit you. There will be penalties. Fighting in the game will be like Fight Night Round 2-4, punch with the stick, and move with the other stick. Fighting will be greatly updated, and it will be like an actual fight(bruises and all), not any of the bobbing back and forth crap. Crowds will be INSANE! You are the home team up 2-1 in game 7, crowd will be going nuts, and boo the crap out of the other teams players. They will have playoff towels, and will bang on the glass. If it's game 7 and your down 3-0, be prepared to get boo'd. Say it's Pitt-Philly @ Philly and Malkin is lighting Philly up, the fans will boo every time Malkin touches the puck. There are no more buttons to try and fight someone, you will have to piss them off enough for them to drop the gloves. Hitting and forechecking will affect the opponent. The player will be fatigued and will play scared(passes are off ect).

Demo info!

http://www.operationsports.com/videoview.php?id=469

Create your player now, check out out his skills in a basic skills competition type thing then play in the prospect game with him, see where you would get drafted.

Or

Play Game 7, Pens vs Wings (like I thought would be in there...to experience the "playoff atmosphere")



EA is spoiling us folks! That is a massive "Demo"

Its not coming out tomorrow. That is a bogus rumor that's been shot down by EA.

Yeah.. RUMOR has it. I'll be really shocked (but pleasantly surprised) if it's out this week even.
On the NHL 10 twitter page they said they're aiming for 2-3 weeks before the actual game comes out which would be around the 25th or September 1st at the latest.

I have no idea though.. Where is the rumor that it's out tomorrow ?

Edit: oh nevermind, EA busted it

Its somewhere, but im not about to go looking through 100 previews for it.

You can take my word, or you can just wait 24 hours and see if it comes out.

I'm going to assume that Game 7 will always start out 2-0 Pens, or will the simulation be different every time you think?

Considering the video from Op Sports said "Download Now" I think the demo will come out this week. If I had to guess I'd say Friday.

Probably the same every time. They're going with the "Can you change history?"-feel.

I think it's random, because in a video somewhere it was the same thing but 1-0 Wings to start the third.

Didn't say 'Download Now', it said Download it on... (XBL, PSN, ETC)

If they're putting out promo videos now, I guess it can't be too long from now. I actually think that they delayed it somewhat so they could get their Madden 10 marketing spotlight for a week or two.

Just a quick question. I played the ***** out of NHL 09 and already have NHL 10 ordered but was wondering if anyone knew if there was a limit in 09 as to how many players & teams you could create? Because I was planning on creating a whole leauge (WHL) with all custom players but I've only ever created one team with all custom players so I didn't know if there was a cutoff or not.

I'm definitely picking Detroit and seeing if I can make the comeback and beat the Pens. Should be fun for a couple of weeks until the real game gets out.

It showed some fighting in the demo video if I recall correctly. Hope it's in too so I can get some practice with it.

Hey all i know theres been all this speculation bout the demo coming out tomorrow for nhl 10.

I know someone that works at EA sports(blackbox studio in Burnaby, BC) and he told me it is coming out for XBOX Live Gold on Aug. 20, and for XBOX Live Silver and PS3 on August 27th.

He said the demo includes the 3rd period of the stanley cup finals as part of the Battle for the Cup mode (DET/PIT), be a pro, and a short game with 2 minute periods.

I don't think devs have an inside scoop as it's a toss-up guessing how long MS will sit on it.
