I don't see how I am wrong at all, they aren't releasing 2K11 to compete head to head with EA they threw in the towel and are only releasing it on a system that they have no competition on..... yet.

EA won the NHL market on next gen consoles bottom line, 2K cut there losses and don't be too shocked if they develop the NHL series exclusively on the Wii from here on out.

I don't see how I am wrong at all.


No competition is bad all around and I fear what may happen if EA goes to the Wii.

They promoted it late last year since the EA hype machine was in full swing and they really had nothing earth shattering to announce.

I am not sure if you read the Google link I provided or not but it is not a rumour it is FACT that they are looking at NOT releasing the game.
You didn't specifically say 360 and PS3. You said "there WILL NOT be an NHL 2K11 AT ALL" Although I am sure you are just as happy seeing it being axed on two systems, which I don't understand. No competition means little innovation. No one wins the nex gen console war for hockey. Only gamers lose with no choice. It's been proven with Madden, and it will more than likely happen again with hockey. It doesn't matter that Littman wants to see a great game, the higher ups could say: hey, we have no competition, so there is no need to innovate or develop anything new or groundbreaking. This has been the case in many different businesses.

2K did bring this on themselves. VC developed a subpar game and it showed in the sales and reviews. Whether it was subpar because of lack of staff or higher up decisions, we will never know. Developers do not want to release bad games, they are usually forced to through budgets constraints or other reasons made by higher ups.

not happy at all, not sure where that comes from. I am a fan of competition always have been always will be.

Littman and his crew had a direction to take the series the 2K group decide to "wing" it and hope for the best and all the happy folks reminiscing about the "good old days"

Littman and his group have achieved many of their goals they set but they are far from done, trust me on that.

Innovation is far from dead for Littman's group.
