NHL15 Demo already? Sweet! I see it...downloading now! Forget Madden!

FYI - The NHL15 demo is under the normal Xbox One Games section. It's not showing up under EA Access for some odd reason. I did cancel my sub but the month doesn't run out for another 10 days or so.

Looks like this is a real 'demo' for the general public with just a quick game and some frees skate. I am guessing the EA access one (full game for 6 hours or so) will come out next Thur or Fri.

It pains me to say it but the NHL15 demo just does not feel right at all.

NHL "94" controller settings are there thankfully but even that didn't help.

I'll gladly pay another $5 for early access if necessary to see if anything has changed in a week or so. It's still early and things could change... I hope so.

I like some of the changes they made, but with EASHL gone and all of the other modes having reduced feature set, this will be the first year in a long time that I don't buy the game. At least not new on release day.

Seriously bad price. If they are going over $99 they better at least put in Kinect Sports as well.

I agree with you. Offering a $10 game isn't going to help move this. I was thinking they would charge $119.99 this way they can say the $499 is a savings. This will drop in price after Thanksgiving.

Well if Kinect isn't already dead, this $150 price point should certainly be the final nail in the coffin. It's too bad... the voice commands are working much better after the various updates they've done. We're still waiting for a "killer app" however.

Why would that put the nail in the coffin? Most people, if they are going to get a kinect, are going to get it in a bundle anyway, right?

Curious if anyone else if having similar issues with their Xbox One (I have a launch day edition if that matters):

  • When playing with my wireless controller every ten minutes or so it "disconnects" with the console and I need to reconnect it. This is a big deal with playing online games competitively.
  • I've needed to "restart" my power brick.

Thoughts?

From everything I've read, the $399 version is selling far better than the $499 bundle at this point. If I had bought the 399 version and was on the fence about Kinect, I might take a stab at it for $99. Not so sure about $149.

Couple of questions... Have you tried updating the firmware? What kind of batteries are you using? If you are using chargeables. Try normal batteries and see if that takes care it. If it does maybe you have a faulty battery?

We are using 3 Day One Editions with no issues. Using charge packs for all controllers. If all else fails then do a full restore.

The price isn't designed to entice owners who bought the 399.99 console. Especially since those consumers said they didn't want the Kinect. The price is designed to show the 499.99 as a better deal. Also knowing how we at Avs are, I am sure someone can find it for less than retail just like gold cards. Personally for me Kinect doesn't need a killer app. It works for what I mostly use it for with the UI features.

Yeah--it's probably kind of a marketing ploy . I doubt that they think that they'll sell many ala carte.

That's the way that I feel about it. It's worth the price of admission for "Xbox, go to <whatever>" from virtually any context, without having to navigate through the UI.
