Looking good.

I'll be picking it for PS4 for sure.

Only gripe I have and always had (the goalie in me that speaks) is the damn Montreal's goalie mask... when you see Price at 0:16 seconds... why does the mask has to be so fugly!!!

Instead of having generics stripes, could we at least customize it a bit!?!? eek.gif

Every year they have the same models and I always find them ugly. I think you can customize it in BaP but not in the other mode.

At least make an option to use the decals from BaP into online mode,etc smile.gif

The trailer looked amazing, but I try to avoid getting too hyped up over a nice trailer.

Remember that line from the Bel Biv Devoe song "Poison".... " Never trust a big booty and a smile "


I think that needs to be remembered, whenever you see a trailer that doesn't really show the game from a "playable" perspective. The Madden video and Fifa videos looked amazing as well (especially Fifa), but until I see actual gameplay video, it's so hard to really know what we are in for.

Hell, even when I finally saw the first legit gameplay video of Madden last year for the PS4 and Xbox One, it still looked pretty amazing, and then when I actually got the game I realized that the pretty visuals wore off in about 7 games played, and what was left underneath was the same old lame Tiburon engine.

I actually haven't played NHL in a number of years, but anytime there is a generational switch, I'm always a bit more interested in seeing the new hockey when that happens. I really loved NHL '94 on the Sega Genesis back in the day. Never been a real fan of the actual sport, but the video game version plays quite nicely.

I was hyped for the game even before the traile due to the new generation. Same thing happened with NHL08.

Last game I bought was NHL13 so I will be this one for the newest version after skipping NHL14.

The gameplay will still be almost the same as the previous year but it will still be fun.

I would have prefered to have Subban on it

I was so disappointed last night during the Award Ceremony when Bergeron won it...

But I prefer having him (over any other Bruin's player) than say Marchand

Haha, haven't been following the news on this. Good for Bergie, class act player. Now the EA cover curse can continue ; (lol jk)

Burgeron seemed to be all over the stage last night, but I am definitely glad he won this over P.K. I'm pretty sure no Habs or Leafs players have ever been on the cover... got to keep it that way.

Side note: 3 awards for the Avalanche last night, almost 4... pretty solid showing for my team.

They'd have to use both the font and back covers just to make room for his nose.

Bergie represents everything that's good in hockey: great two-way player, great yet humble spokesman for the game, does tons of community work, and he's one tough dude (he played game six of last year's final with a variety of injuries including, as later discovered, a punctured lung). A far better representative for the sport than that crybaby in Pittsburgh.

I'll be picking this up when its released.

faces still aren't exact, but not as crappy as they have been before.

I find it interesting that they already have Briere in an Avs jersey!

I am looking forward to the next generation leap even if the first iteration is often bumpy.

I was never more than a casual hockey fan and usually less but agree that hockey probably translates better to video game than any other sport. Easy to learn but hard to master, it moves fast and games aren't too long.

I have fond memories of NHL for Sega and esp NHL 98 for Playstation. Got back in with NHL 13 and 14, which were almost the same game despite all of the lip-service features touted, marketing, and snazzy videos for NHL 14. Even still, I enjoyed both very much and from having played so much, I know the players much better and watched a lot more (playoff) hockey than normal.

Still tons of room for improvements. Hate how the animations when you deke still look so static and animatronic. The goalie jerseys looked funny, almost like their was a light breeze blowing on them.

Biggest problem with that is that each match was of the 1st round of the playoffs, except for Bos vs Wsh...I mean the Caps didnt even make the playoffs...!!!

My biggest letdown is that there is a rumor that the EASHL mode will be left out of the new edition on next gen (PS4, Xbox one). That's where I was playing about 80% of my time with this game. Huge let down for me.

EA has confirmed both EASHL and Connect to GM are out in the new-gen versions but still available in last-gen. Can't really understand why besides laziness in investing, but what can we really do

Marketing tactics so they can add them both back next year in "BOLD" and label them as "NEW features".

Sucks for people who played those modes

I mostly Be a GM and games with friends. Might give a try in BaP this year. Tried it a bit when they released the mode (nhl09 I think).

EASHL was my third favorite mode after HUT and Versus, I don't enjoy the offline stuff.

I am surprised how many modes got cut, EASHL, GMC, heck even online shoot out mode is gone. BAP is back to NHL 13 version, no live the life update, and Be a GM has no updates.

That said, I look more forward to NHL 15 than any NHL release I can remember in a long time.

Presentation/gameplay updates look very good for next gen.

Thanks for the reminder, just added the demo to my download list.

The PS Store states that the game is only 720p, which would be disappointing. Some Googling shows the developers not answering the resolution question although they mention it is 60fps... I guess we'll see, but not 1080p and missing game modes has me concerned that it is a quick and dirty port.

What is strange is the regular game states 720P but the Ultimate Edition ($69.99) states Full HD 1080P.

Dell is offering a $25 gift card for pre-order purchase of NHL 15 (standard or Ultimate Edition)

http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/category.aspx?c=us&category_id=6488&cs=19&l=en&s=d hs

Would be nice if we can get Amazon to price match. For those, with Amazon Prime, we could get release day shipping for free so click on "tell us about a lower price" in the product details and maybe they will act on it.

Not a hockey fan, but that demo was really good. Shame the periods were only two minutes. Now why can't Madden be that good?
