2K NHL Benched For the Year
 
For those that are fans of the 2K series, it appears NHL12 will be the only hockey game on the market this year, much like 2K12 will be the only basketball game.

They didn't do one last year either. Not that I have bought a 2K game I think ever.

2k had a hockey game? what? I would totally play that over EA.:wacko:

Actually I did buy the iPad version, played it a couple of times and deleted it.

They did have 2k11 last year, but it was a Wii exclusive. Not really sure they'd be able to keep up with the new physics based EA engine :thumbup:

Competition is a good thing.

The sad thing is EA Sports and the NHL series hasn't had any competition for awhile, the crazy thing is that they still manage to make the game better (IMO)

speaking of NHL 2K being on the Wii only for last season, I just picked up EA Sports NHL Slapshot last night for the Wii for $20! my wife pointed out the 2K version for the same price and my 5 year old Son reminded her that "Daddy went to EA Sports for NHL not 2K land"

$20 with the stick included? If so that's AWESOME, I've been wanting to get that game since it came out.

the funny thing was the game was $19 and an extra stick was $14!! My Son is leading the series so far 2-0 lol

When the 2K series started on Dreamcast, it was the better hockey sim. I would worry that no competition will mean no serious improvement in the EA game other than roster updates. Doesn't look that way so far.

I don't think the NHL series will ever become complacent as long as this development team sticks together. They are as much fans of the sport as those buying their games.
