Shawn and Mark, over at 5W-G have posted some NHL ‘08 details, from their recent trip to NHL ‘08 Community Day in Burnaby, British Columbia.
"Shawn Drotar: After lacing up some skates and taking to the ice in Burnaby, BC, we got a first-hand look at how hockey is really played by producer (and former NHL goaltender) David Littmann and Nashville Predators blueliner Shea Weber. Then, armed with the knowledge that hockey’s a lot harder (and much more complicated) than the pros make it look, we spent some quality time with EA’s latest hockey sim - and I emphasize “sim” - NHL 08.

Mark Fossen: Feel free to emphasize the “sim”… because I’ll be talking about “game”. NHL 08 feels like one of those games that simply gets it right; balancing simulation and game extremely well. I didn’t sit for hours on end with controller in hand because it was a good sim, but because it was a well-constructed and addictive game."

CVG has the scoop.
"The DVD vs. Blu-Ray debate is being fired up again this morning, as PGR4 dev Bizarre Creations blames DVD size for the reason you won't see different times of day in PGR4.

Speaking on its official forums, a Bizarre spokesperson said: "You won't see different times of day per city because this involves recreating all the textures again (one for day and one for night). Whilst this wasn't a problem for our dev team, it was a problem fitting all this data onto a single DVD."

Before you get too upset though, Bizarre says its come up with a sort-of work around by providing different lighting models per city."
