First off, before anyone tries to defend EA, all I'm going to say is FIFA 13 on the Wii. Yeah, epic fail right there. Oh yeah, and NHL 12 and NHL 13. Simple Google searches will leave you shaking your head and waving a finger at EA...and not the PG finger either. Anyway, in a recent conference John Riccitiello, EA's CEO, stated that consumers won't pay for crap...yet they already do.
After reaching out to EA last week for a comment on a monetary issue that has been plaguing gamers for an entire year and spanning two games, we still haven't received a response from them. However, gamers have fared slightly better, continually pestering EA for a response and they finally got one, but not the one they were hoping for.
Another bug has been making the rounds for EA's recent NHL 13, which sees gamers buying boost packs from EA's store but not actually receiving the packs, resulting in a loss of MS Points and no refunds in sight.
Let's hope this situation gets resolved real quick but we've been notified by one of our readers that EA's latest NHL 13 is forcing players to spend real cash to compensate for an in-game currency glitch. Yeah, that's EA for you. And if you think this is some isolated case, think again.
EA Canada's hockey sim NHL 13 is now in stores throughout North America. To commemorate the occasion, EA sent out a trailer that toots the game's horn.
This week's list of releases on the PlayStation Network is something of a megaton, featuring multiple full PlayStation 3 games (Like Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and NHL 13), some new PSN titles, a PS2 classic and...a demo for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3?
In EA's upcoming NHL 13, a pair of ladies will be able to hit the ice and check with the best of them. While last year's NHL 12 allowed players to create a female athlete, this year's iteration will include two female ice stars as playable characters for, according to EA, “the first time ever in a professional league simulation sports video game.”
With about a week until NHL 13's release, EA Sports has released a stirring live-action trailer to get you excited. It might get you pumped even if you have little to no interest in hockey.
When you're playing a hockey video game, scoring goals is generally the most satisfying part. However, with NHL 13, EA wants to make sure that it's just as satisfying and interesting to play as the goalie.
