    Madden NFL 17 has only now been out for just over two weeks but the game can already be had at a significant discount. Amazon is offering Madden NFL 17 as its “Deal of the Day” for $40 on PS4 and Xbox One. This will likely be the lowest price found on Madden NFL 17 until Black Friday in late November so those who are interested should take advantage of the deal.

    Madden NFL 17 is the highest rated edition in the series since 2009 and features a brand new commentary team with audio updated throughout the season, special teams that can have an impact on every game, new ball-carrier moves, and considerable improvements to defensive AI.

  • 10 hour trial for NHL 17 now available through EA Access on Xbox One

    NHL 17 Vladimir Tarasenko

    NHL 17 is out now to download as a timed trial with EA Access on Xbox One. Subscribers to the service will get 10 hours of playtime after which it will expire. The timer is ticking down whenever the game is loaded regardless of whether it is being played, menus are being navigated through, or if there is any activity taking place at all. Because of that make sure to exit out and close the application from the Xbox One home screen when not in use.

    The 10 hours are there to play whether or not all are used by Tuesday. Saves are stored on the hard drive so progress in any of the modes and online records and stats carry over if a full copy is purchased. The complete game is available during the trial period.

    EA Access launched July 2014 and is only available on Xbox One (though there’s now also Origin Access on PC). This is the case because Sony has declined to offer the service through PlayStation 4 saying it doesn’t offer enough value – despite being arguably the best value in all of gaming. EA Access includes the “Vault” which offers unlimited play with nearly every game from the company’s catalog this generation, 10% off all digital purchases, and the ability to play games up to five days before they release with a limited timed trial. EA Access is priced at $30 for a full year or $5 month-to-month.

    Features for NHL 17 include a mode dedicated to the World Cup of Hockey, the introduction of Draft Champions mode, arena and team creation options, and relocation plus other ownership duties in Franchise. The game is still available for Amazon Prime members to pre-order for $48 standard edition or $64 Deluxe Edition infused with extra Ultimate Team content.

    The full ratings for the entirety of the league in NBA 2K17 are out and LeBron James is back on top after surrendering that claim last season to back-to-back MVP Stephen Curry. Check out the Sporting News piece for all the players rated 88 and above.

    Though he is no longer the top rated player Curry’s unbelievable performance during the regular season last year did have a big influence on the game. A new shooting category of “Contested” has been added. The developers had a difficult time trying to represent his skill set last season because the game was built to penalize all shooters who had their shots contested. That won’t be the case anymore and Curry has 99 in all of the 3pt categories.

    The Warriors will begin 2K17 with the strongest roster ever assembled in the history of the league. The team’s player ratings exceed that of all classic teams including the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls. Golden State has an astonishing four players rated 90 or higher.
