Thread: NHL 08 or NHL 2k8?

    Default NHL 08 or NHL 2k8?

    Which game will you be getting?

    And I don't know if I should get a PS3 or an Xbox360.

    Ive already owned a 360 and it broke so im not sure if I want to get another one.

    But! I can get a PS3 for $450 and the 5 free movies seems like a good offer...

    So what are the differences between the two versions one might ask?

    It is visuals and frame rate.


    Now for the bad news PS3 owners. EA once again does you a huge disservice. With its first NHL title on PS3, EA has really dropped the ball visually. While the gameplay and feature set is identical to 360, the framerate is not. And while EA would like to say the PS3 version runs at 30 frames per second, that's questionable. PlayStation editor Greg Miller put it best upon first seeing NHL 08 running on PS3: "It looks like they're playing hockey under a strobe light." You can still play and enjoy NHL 08 on PS3, but don't you deserve a perfect framerate? Shouldn't you demand a better-looking game? Write your Congressman and get EA to pay the PS3 a bit more respect. Nearly a year into its life, the PS3 should have sports games that run smoothly.
    and about 2k series. No reviews or demos so I don't know.

    I had both on pre-order, but already got NHL 2K8 today. Won't get around to playing it until later tonight.

    I will be getting NHL08, mainly because I was able to play the demo on the 360.

    As for the PS3/360 question. I have both, and will be getting the 360 version.

    This will be the first year that I switch over to EA... 2k has been stale the past few years, and I've been completely obsessed with the 08 demo since it became available. I'm hoping I can find a copy tonight, otherwise I'm picking it up tomorrow.

    Probably can't go wrong with either game this year, although I'd feel better saying that if the 2k8 demo was available.

    I'm switching to EA this from 2K. The 2K crew totally ****ed up by not having a demo available, as I too have been obsessed with he NHL 08 demo since got my 360 back.

    Not quite sure how PS3 online works but I'm tired of paying Microsoft to play online. Go with PS3.

    P.S.
    Still waiting for the f**ng Wii to come out with a hockey game.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.
