It didn't take long for 2K Sports to answer EAs challenge - they've now announced Joe Thornton as the player to be on the cover for NHL 2k7, with these images and a trailer. As a great hockey fan, I must ask - how long will it take for the developers to make the players actually interact with the stone cold hard walls AROUND the ice? I was hoping for at least an animation upgrade, but it doesn't seem like we get that. Either. The hockey genre makes me sick.
@GriftGFX: I agree. I also don't think the budget is even close to BF1's budget. I'm not going to buy it, saving money for the Pro. (26 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: How bad would TitanFall 2 sales have to be to offset the success of Battlefield... TitanFall 2 is an EA Partner's game... seems like a little bit of an overreaction. (2 Hours ago)
