Well, on the "bright" side, it gave me a chance to try goaltender. It wasn't pretty.

The disc looks spotless.

GoW2 and other discs work.


You need to try clearing your hard drive cache. I've only got the unreadable once and clearing the cache fixed it. If you don't know how to do it search "clearing xbox 360 cache" online and it will tell you.

Game updates available today. Looking for details somewhere ...

NHL 09 Blog: David Littman
Posted 10.29.2008

Hi there, David Littman here.

We are in the process of putting the patches up for both the X360 and the PS3. PS3 Europe has already gone up, and PS3 North America and both X360
patches should be up within the next week or two.

First and foremost we have fixed the "dirty disc" message issue that
some people are seeing on the X360. For the PS3, we have fixed the issue where there are sometimes white flashes or flickers during gameplay.
So, if you have seen one of the above, you will be happy to know they are fixed with the patch.

For most people though...the important fixes are in gameplay. We have listened to all of you, and we have played the game ourselves every day. While we couldn't make every fix that you asked for because of time constraints, we did fix most of the big issues, and also improved gameplay to be more authentic. The jersey on the EASHL side select screen is more visible than the team logo. This will make it easier for people to see when jersey
colors clash.
-Deking controls normal when shooting downscreen with "Always Up" controls
-Checking has been tuned so you will see less big hits from guys that aren't traditionally known for hitting
-Less CPU AI one-timers Increased the height of dump ins, for a better dump and chase game.
-No more goals from flip dumps
-Better CPU AI logic near offensive blueline so they don't go off-sides as much
-CPU goalie will not drag the puck back toward himself in a
shootout
-We have fixed the goals from outside shots that people are scoring. We have reduced shot accuracy when on the rush and when turning
quickly, and from far out. You will now have to be more conservative
when shooting on the rush. If you aim all the way to the left or right,
your shot will go wide a lot more. Try aiming more towards the middle to
hit the net from outside. This fixes the cross goal where you shoot back
the other way, and the goal that goes in with the "curve" animation, and
a few others. There's a reason NHL players don't shoot from outside on
the rush very often. Dumping or trying to set up is a better play unless
you have an odd-man situation.
-We reduced the time it took to get control of the goalie by 1/3.
-When line changes are set to auto, and a user changes lines/defense manually between whistles, the line/defensive pair you asked for will come out (or stay out).
-If you have line changes off in Be a Pro, line change player chatter will be turned off.
-When using a defenseman in BAP, BAP player won't get stuck on the bench and will be able to call for change
-The EASHL will now go to continuous 5v5 overtime until one team
scores. This way nobody has to sit out, and you get to decide who wins
(this is now just like the NHL Play-offs)
-The proper own-goal cut scene will be shown where the player who
scored on himself is upset.
-All cut scenes should now show players sitting in their respective team's bench.
-Increase AI team aggressiveness and the likelihood of them getting called for a penalty on an infraction.
-If Vision Control is pressed, you do not throw a hit when in
front of the attacking net. This helps with rebound shots.
Increase the likelihood of a penalty if the stick hits the body
during a stick lift.
-Reduce the accuracy of shots for penalty shots and shootouts.
-Aiming for just inside the post is a lot tougher now
-Along with these changes we are still working on the server side of
things to make sure that the EASHL and online play is always improving.

Keep checking our website for more information on the EASHL play-offs.

Thanks
-David Littman

How about they let you set the home/away always up to "1P" always up. It's so annoying to have to go to the settings just before the puck drops every single game to adjust this. Or am I just stupid and there's already a way to set this?

When you play OTP using your personal "pro," it incorporates other settings that allow you to always be skating up. Take a look around at the quickplay settings, or custom preferences/create-a-match settings to see if there's someting else.

I'll have to take a look. I primarily play in Dynasty mode (as the Rangers) and I haven't ever come across a setting that would enable me to always skate up by default. So it's always the same song and dance of going into the game settings, visual settings, adjust to home or away always up, exit back to opening faceoff. Gets old quick!

I found this a lot with "quick-match" OTP, but with the ranked, be a pro players I assume it has more to do with switching camera angles around between goal, defense and forwards.

Yes this year's game is more in depth and actually require strategy.... especially for hitting or skating faster than the opponent..you need to play the angles....

Good luck !! and have fun with the game.... it does help you appreciate more of the game...
