    Announced last night at the NHL Awards Show, Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins has been selected for the cover of NHL 15. Whether that selection was made by the fans or EA Sports who noted in the terms they could override results and choose who they wanted anyway, he beat out the Canadians' P.K. Subban in the finals of the competition. NHL 15 is due out September 9 and will feature a new commentary team, NBC presentation, enhanced physics, and next-gen visuals on Xbox One and PS4. Pre...

    In testimony earlier this week in the Ed O'Bannon case vs the NCAA, an Electronic Arts representative expressed the desire the company has to develop college-based video games in the future. Joel Linzner, EVP of Business & Legal, stated EA would be "very interested in acquiring the rights" of players to use in the games. Of course this would require the NCAA to remove most if not all restrictions on the "amateur" status of athletes which is what the class action suit is attempting to...

    One of the biggest surprise announcements of E3 came out of the Sony press conference relating to Far Cry 4. Those who own the game will be able to invite friends to play co-op along with them, even when they don't own the game themselves. Remembering back to the initial PlayStation 4 announcement Sony raised the idea of a feature where friends could not just spectate but participate without owning the games and that is starting to come to fruition now. The thinking behind this feature co...

    In what was a relatively uneventful E3, EA Sports pushed its slate of upcoming titles by focusing mostly on the fundamentals instead of hyperbole.

Madden went heavy on defense accompanied by some gimmicky visual indicators and new cameras. There was also info on aspects like QB accuracy finally mattering and long overdue pres...

    Whether intentional or not, EA Sports initial reveal of next year's PGA Tour game has created the perception that it will be arcade in nature rather than the simulation the series has tended to strive for. HB Studios, who has a pure sim golf game releasing on Xbox One and PS4 this summer (already out on PC through Steam), took the opportunity to jab at the company which previously had utilized the studio for secondary golf and other sports titles. The Golf Club's trailer also features bo...
