Other than the ghastly image of Washington Capitals left winger Alex Ovechkin gracing the cover of September's NHL 2K10, we've seen almost nothing of the game thus far. Unfortunately for us -- and worse for you, weekend readers -- the game's first trailer does little in the way of showing off what t...

It should be no wonder Mark Cuban (got some Jerry Jones envy?) is promising the first NHL & NBA arena with 1080-line digital scoreboards. While 1080p has been well entrenched in scoreboards for the outdoor sports (like the Dallas Cowboys and New York Yankees) it appears the winter brethren has...

What's the only thing better than a carrier-endorsed firmware that fixes a plethora of the Storm's reported issues? An NHL-themed decal, of course! It looks like Bell is prepping to launch the 9530 in a special NHL package that'll include a skin for the hockey team of your choice (admittedly, we're...

This week, XBLA in Brief takes a look at 3 on 3 NHL Arcade and the (sort of) surprise release, Minesweeper Flags. Let's put it this way, one of them is a decent game and the other is a retread of a freeware PC game that you probably already have on your computer right now. Watch and enjoy. Downlo...

Lace up your skates and grab a stick, because EA's over-the-top hockey game, 3 on 3 NHL Arcade, is this week's Xbox Live Arcade release. Fetching the tidy sum of 800 ($10), EA's title features more than just big heads, as it promises a "no rules, fast paced" version of the popular sport. Planning t...

Europe wins the PSN war this week with its Killzone 2 demo and other assorted full games.

As we were expecting, EA just informed us that 3 on 3 NHL Arcade will be skating its way to the Xbox Live Arcade next Wednesday, February 11th for a cool 800. That is, if the hockey players can fit their abnormally large heads through the rink's entrance. Thankfully, the PSN will be receiving NHL Ar...

We have a feeling that maybe, just maybe, EA has a total secret crush on PlayStation Network. Last week, it gave PS3 owners access to a free exclusive Mirror's Edge level. This week, it's giving PSN users one week early access to the first EA Sports-branded downloadable game, 3 on 3 NHL Arcade. ...

AT&T may be raising its U-verse TV rates, but at least it's showing subscribers that all those dollars aren't going to waste (or a bigwig's pocket). Starting this week, both NHL Network and NHL Network HD are being added to the U-verse TV lineup, but you'll need either the U400 tier or The Sport...

Because five on five hockey is overkill and oversized human heads always make things for lovable, EA just announced they'll be releasing 3 on 3 NHL Arcade to the Xbox Live Arcade sometime in February. For 800 Microsoft points, gamers will be treated to a family friendly version of hockey that h...

In a move that might -- might -- get us excited to play a hockey game again, EA has announced 3 on 3 NHL Arcade, a super-deformed "hockey-lite" coming to XBLA and PSN in February for $10. EA describes it as a "no rules, fast paced" take on the sport (though we're assuming there are some rules, as t...

We know, the major sports outlets aren't even playing it up, but the 2008 - 2009 NHL season is upon us. For fans of the Montreal Canadiens, they'll be enjoying the live action more than most thanks to a 50,000-pound scoreboard that's lighting up the Bell Centre this year.

Hardcore gamers sure do hate tacked-on waggle. Indeed, no one likes to flail their arms around like they're trying to signal aircraft when a simple button press will do. And the guys on the other sides seem to be under the impression that the Wii is nothing but a PS2 that replaces thumb p...
