Yeah as every one pretty much said, 2K today, 08 tomorrow.

Anyone notice how the Sens jersey on the cover of 2K was an Edge jersey? Also, Madden is on the back cover and the jersey looks exactly like the current one. Though I think some of the jerseys on the back were not renderings of Edge jerseys.

i think they didnt do the edge like in 07 they didnt have the new sabres jerseys... or they just made something up

So I was playing 2K8 last night and it says that you can download all of the new 07/08 jerseys, but you have to go to the 2KSports.com website. I finally hooked up my PS3 to get internet capabilities, and it will be just a download. I proceed to check out the site and see what I have to do, and it says they will not be available until September 15th, after all teams have announced their new jerseys. Wonder if that is true, and we will see them all by Saturday.

We should just change the title of this thread to NHL 08 - NHL 2K8. I picked up 2k8 yesterday, 08 wasn't out here yet but I'm going to try to pick it up today.

2k8 is a lot better than I expected though. It's pretty fun to play and it's a lot different than 2k7 and judging from the 08 demo, the defense in 2k8 is much better than 08's. I always pick up both games though so I'll be able to give a better comparison hopefully later today.

Did anyone get 2K8 for PS2 yet? It seems like they didn't even try. They updated the roster, added the lame "Superstar moves", and that was it. The announcers even say the same things they said in 2K7. New names that weren't in 2K7 are added but sound horribly out of place, like bad English dubbing on a Japanese film. Also, they misprounce so many names...Johnny O-die-ya? Since when does a U make an I sound...?

I don't know, I'll still play it because I like the gameplay and all, but they really stiffed folks this year. Did they just put all their focus into the PS3/360 versions...?

Most likely they did. The 360 version of 2k8 is pretty good but I do think 08 is the better overall game.

08 may be the best hockey game ever, its definitely the best EA effort in a long time

It's outstanding. You can move the puck tape to tape very quickly, crisply, and accurately- much more so than in '07- and the skating is awesome. The d still isn't that great, but coupled with the practice features and the ability to create custom plays, it's BY FAR the best hockey video game I've ever played- and I've pretty much played 'em all.
