Anyone have this happened recently and can provide an answer?
Happened to me for the the FOURTH time (in 3 years) just last month. Send it in ASAP.

I called to report it on Monday evening, shipped it out Tuesday morning(own box), got it back Friday at noon.

Very reasonable IMO, even though its clearly a frequent occurence.

That would be too late and to close to the actual date if the Demo came out in September.
It came out 2 weeks before release day last year for the 360, so its not a far fetched prediction at all.

We'll see if it comes out this week, but again, i doubt it. Im still saying the 25th, next week sometime.

Of course though i'll be thrilled if it comes out this week

New "Raw Footage" Video with Littman.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PCx_jdN6oQ

What I liked the best was the end:

"Lower skilled Shot Blocking players will stand up to block on a shot and wont go down, players with higher skill for shot blocking will go down quick and will be able to get up quick, guys in the middle will go down slow and get up a bit slower"

Nice!

Hardcore sounds awesome, I just hope it's not too slow, can always tweak it though.

This game really sounds incredible, the best thing IMO about EA is that they really listen to their fans and acknowledge if something in their game needs improvements (fighting, passing, acceleration, etc.) and they go above and beyond.

Last time this happened to me was probably about a year ago. I sent it in and had a fairly good experience. Probably would've gone faster if I'd just called it in, but I did it online. I believe it took around two and a half weeks or so, and they sent me a gold card, and a free game, so I was fairly happy with it. And soo far, my xbox is fine.

Wow, now I feel like a sucker for doing it all online, I got stuck with a 1 month gold card and nothing else.

Atleast I didn't get one of those dodgy refurbish jobs I've heard about.

An observation about the AI in 09 that was extremely frustrating that Im gonna just throw out here:

W all know your team's AI stand still most of the time, especially if you're looking for the pass. If you skate with the puck around the opposing net, you have 4 options:

1: Pass it to your defenceman
2: Make a pass to the slot/ cross-crease for a teammate to shoot
3: Cycle it back to another teamate behind the net
4: you shoot

These are all common sense plays that shouldn't require Create-A-Play, instead:

1: They never get open and the oppsing winger is standing right in their face, this option is closed most of the times
2: Same with #1, your teammates never EVER try to get open they just let the defending AI cross check them a hundred time
3: This is fine


And what's up with the opposing AI that stays in your defenseman's face all the time, whenever i try to get it to my d-man, it gets there, but he cant do anything with it cuz th eopposing winger is RIGHT IN HIS FACE...this doesnt happen in reality, the wingers cover the d-man, but they usually stay along the hash-marks and not SO DAMN CLOSE

Like multiplayer franchise? 7 years and still waiting. Nothing like going above and beyond.I'm glad mr. Littman is listening to us franchise guys.

Hardcore mode sounds like an extremely welcome addition. Removing checking assist is an awesome change.

Removing checking assist is huge a real good feature. Manual passing and need to play 20-30 games to get use to it? Not if you pkayed 2k for the last # of years. I'm sorry but I nearly fell off my chair I laughed so hard.

Nice to see EA heading in the right direction. Just add multiplayer franchise/Be a GM already.
