    [1030ET/730PT START TIME] A full panel is on hand to discuss the confirmation that there will be no EA Sports Hockey League or GM Connected modes in the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version of NHL 15. It's tremendously bad news for the game and some of its most hardcore fans who would never have even contemplated this as a possibility, and the way EA Sports has handled it could have even longer-lasting ramifications to the series than just a single year. The show will be archived after comple...

    A special Press Row Hangout came together Thursday night to discuss the news out of Gamescom before turning to the scorching hot topic of the moment. Despite mounting circumstantial evidence that paints a distressing picture EA Sports will neither confirm nor deny the presence of EA Sports Hockey League and GM Connected modes in the XB1/PS4 version NHL 15. The company has only now stated that news related to modes will be discussed next week. The audio from this show will also be featured ...

    At Gamescom yesterday Sony announced some details on the PlayStation 4 v2.00 console update due out this fall. One new feature will be Share Play, which allows someone who owns a game to invite a friend to play along with them even if that friend doesn't own the game. The best way to think about Share Play is like a “virtual couch”. PlayStation 4 will create an online local co-op experience by allowing you to invite a friend to join your game—even when they don’t own a copy of it. W...
  • Press Row Hangout: EA Decides Against Releasing a Demo for Madden NFL 15

    Posted August 12th, 2014 at 12:15 pm 17 Comments »
    EA Sports made it official yesterday that there would be no demo for Madden NFL 15. Poor timing, that coincided with the EA Access subscription service moving out of beta and becoming available to all on Xbox One, compounded the frustration which was expressed by many through social media, news sites, and forums. I was joined by Rich Grisham and T.J. Lauerman to discuss the development on a special edition of the Press Row Hangout. What the lack of a demo means for Madden 15, for the futu...

The topics include The Golf Club and whether there could be more unlicensed sports games in the future, when to expect the Madden NFL 15 demo, why publishers seem to be holding back information on games until later now, and what sports game release in the past generated the most anticipation for the panelists.

  • Breaking Down the New EA Access Subscription Service
    by
    Posted July 30th, 2014 at 1:15 pm 20 Comments »
    EA Access was announced yesterday and based on the reaction there appears to be quite a lot of interest in the concept of a subscription service which provides a library of older games to play and pre-release play periods for new games. Many who were aware of EA Sports Season Ticket liked what that provided too, which EA Access appears to have improved upon in several areas and offers less in others, but that program was never actively advertised by the company so it never took off.
