The same sh*t they release every year, same old PS2 engine with no widescreen support. They have improved FIFA this year (but still far from 360 and PS3) but NHL is the same old story

Damn. Ok thanks for the heads up. I gave up on the EA's NHL series a few years ago. I thought this years might be a bit better because of the improvements to the 360 version. Such a shame. Used to be the flagship sports game for EA as far as the PC is concerned anyway.

What the PC version still uses the old PS2 engine?!

And yet you'll still have fanboys come here and argue that the PC version has better graphics than the modern consoles. It's just not true, though it has nothing to do with the hardware, and everything to do with EA's shortcomings.

Well the potential is certainly there :D Its not PC gamers fault the devs are lazy.

Tbh I have NHL 09 for my 360 and it doesnt really look any different than the 09 PC version...

No one yet. Did you not notice the future tence? It was mainly in reference to those who were saying that Madden 08 on PC shat all over the console versions graphically.

speaking about console vs pc version, usually PC verison looks better.

most of EA Sports games are rare exceptions to that rule. since they still port over PS2 games

They have upgraded it just a bit, only graphics and controls, but gameplay is from PS2 version. I have downloaded the 360 demo and it blows away the PC version.

At least is a first step

I agree, when I see that any game has been leaked it makes me sad, but I don't mind that those crappy PS2 ports done by EA Sports get torrented to death, it's a joke for PC users to release the same sh*t year after year, like if we were idiots and we didn't notice it

Thank you for repeating me. I never said that console graphics are better than PC graphics. i merely stated that EA has serious deficiencies, and that their games typically look better on consoles. They are the exception, not the norm.

I played the demo with a hdmi hookup. Does the demo support high def?
