A reviewer from finish magazine has confirmed in his latest review that, NHL 08 will run at 30fps on PS3 and whiles, the Xbox 360 version will run in 60 fps. He further states that, the PS3 version's frame rate feel more like NHL 07 on the Xbox 360.
Here we go again...“xbox is teh awesum ps3 sux lolz!”. I think we can all agree EA didn't really care about the PS3 this time around for the same reason they are trying to kiss the Wii's ass. Because of install base/Attach Rate. At this rate the Wii will be running at 400 Fps just because that is where the money is. At least with a company like EA their motives are transparent.
ROFL awesome comment dude.
but it's a natural progression of things. the 360 dealt with crappy EA titles up until now... it's only fair for the ps3 to get crappy ports (although better quality and not as crappy as what 360 had to deal with it's first run of EA games)
Doesnt anybody actually read this stuff, see my reply below #28
**Edit** @Eternal E808 1.4 & 46-
Before you go calling people dumb check your facts. EA is making NHL08, 2k is making NHL2K8. Who is dumb now? Regardless, NHL08 is running at 60fps on the PS3, so there is no need to blame anybody (how many times am I going to write that?!)
you ps3 fans are so funny because yall blaming EA when 2K is making this game haha you drones alway blaming the devs and not the ps3 why?
Boy you guys are getting desperate with negative PS3 news. It won't stop the inevitable. PS3 will overtake 360 in 2009. EA is shooting themselves in the foot. They are alienating PS3 owners.
Buy some lottery tickets and go to the race track because you obviously have the power to see into the future??
Shake your Sony fanboys pom poms harder and maybe people will be distracted from the facts that third party games are looking like crap on the PS3.
Maybe Sony should assist EA more with developement, because this isn't helping the PS3 almost a year into it's life.
psychic all you need is a History Lesson of the PS1 and PS2 look at what most Gaming Industry Analysts are saying. They say PS3 will be on top by 2009 only Gaming Journalists talk about how the PS3 will be in 3rd this generation.
Sony doesn't have to worry about EA they have their own studios to showcase the power of the PS3 and the other 3rd party developers show it also EA is just lazy they want to make money so they don't take the time to perfect all versions of the game.
Since Sony and other 3rd parties can do it all it does is make EA
look foolish and lazy.
2009 Blu ray is going to big advantage for PS3 but it isn't inevitable at all. Time will say.
Thats a tongue twister, but really I dont know what the PS3 and 360 will be doing, too hard to tell.
But definately, the Wii will be #1. There Still selling out. I cant go to the store right now and buy one if I wanted one.
how i wish sony would bring back NFL GameDay series, so ps3 owners wouldn't need no madden.
If they didnt manage to do it for madden, why would they care for their other less popular franchises.
thats my name
i think you just proved "the worst"'s point
If nobody bought them.
Its not like a new sport or anything, I remember Hockey on N64.
This place should be renamed to 'News 4 Flamers'. It's beginning to feel like groundhog day.
EA and MS conspiracy? ;)
PS3 "TRUE" launch in 2009? ;)
PS3 the most powerfull,though just a little shy or autistic? ;)
I'm starting to think that Pete Moore's motives are to give Sony the absolute worst product ever this year and for the next upcoming years. I do believe that Peter did transact some under the table deals with EA during his tenure with Microsoft.
You might need to replace yours soon.
I see NHL 08 will be running on the single PPE, just like Madden.
EA already stated this earlier. This is not news. The diffrense is not that great. If you watch a movie its 24fps, video 30fps, more than enough for now.
Not so my little PS3 apologizer. On 24 fps film (and 30 fps video) each frame is an exposure equal to 1/24th (or 1/30th) of a second. Therefore, any motion during that exposure is manifest on the frame as a blur, preventing the human eye from distingishing the lag between frames. Whereas a video game either presents a frame as an exact moment in time, or it can try to simulate the blur between the last frame and the current frame. Either way, it creates an unnatural effect which will be perceived as "not smooth" by the human eye. That's why PC gamers CRAVE graphics horsepower to run their games at the highest framerate possible.
You cannot simulate motion blur with higher frame rate. fps is always exact. Motion blur needs to be simulated, no matter if 30 or 60fps. (The only exception is a CRT display because the pixels fade out (refresh time) which does not apply to TFTs/Plasmas).
its that big of a deal really. As long as EA are still supporting the ps3 which they are, even though they are not putting across the best versions the ps3's way, they still however get the game. There are plenty other games developers offering better support for the PS3 than EA, practically everyone. PS3 will not suffer because of this in my opinion, i think it just makes people seriously hate EA, which is understandable.
I am buying a 360! Oh wait, Who gives a damn about hockey!!
it's ok. We understand, no - really. We get it. Just not yours. 8|
are you writing the next letter to EA yet maddens raiders? same thing as madden situation, just different game, come on dude flame EA some more, then post all the updates on N4G, please man please please please
i joke i joke, i keed i keed!
Get a Friggin 360!!
Are you that poor? Since launch you could have had one by now just saving like a $1 a week.
I mean other developers don´t have this much problem with makeing ps3 games (They have problem but not this big). They seriously cant be trying to do anything for the ps3, it must be hard to try and make all their games worse on for Sony.
yes EA is really that bad........but at least its a game that no one will play on any console : )
But im from sweden, it´s a lot of hockey tradition here. To play Nhl Free for all is one of the higlights when youre takeing a beer with some friends. But Ea can go Fu themselfs, greedy bastards.
This is pathetic. 2K will have both versions of NHL 2K8 running at 60fps! Have both of these companies had the same amount of time to work with the PS3? I find it hard to believe that 2K has surpassed EA.
Cough...GTA...Cough...Darkness ...Cough...2K NBA/MLB/NHL/TopSpin/AllPro/Jad e Empire/Pray/Sid Meier's Civilization/The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion/Manhunt/MaxPayne...
do we need to go on.
Yes they have passed EA!
Jade empires not 2K. and hell yea they've passed EA up. EA just made a game called Boogie (wtf?), 2K just made Bioshock. yet, EA has NFL license, those bastards, and they sell a sh!tload of games. EA is like a giant, mediocre-videogame spewing octopus
"19.3 - Jade empires not 2K"
Your right they only published the PC version.
EA nuff said. Classic situation. Now, it's becoming a tradition ^^.
Well, I'm not a EA fan or game follower. Good to those that enjoy they game and have fun!!!!.
Same Sh!t with Madden 08 EA are to F'in lazy to take some time to develop a good game for PS3 they don't care because its all about the BENJAMIN'S BABY !!! thats what the console war is about basically the Green thay don't care about consumers i would love to slap EA in the face for being LAzy if other dev's can make a PS3 game runnin at 60fps then u know its lazyness get ur SH!T together EA anyone who feels they same and got a PS3
email me at [email protected]
ea should remember the ps2 owners are future ps3 owners but there again theres always a new franchise to spend your money on when you think youv,e got the monopoly some think comes along and bites you in the ass.
there sports division has really gone down hill not just for the ps3 but the 360 as well
all this talk of 60 frames in madden only to see the players leave the pitch its laughable
former PS2 owner (several times over), PS owner, PS1 owner and now XBOX 360 owner here!
EA NHL 08 60-FPS for $60.
EA NHL 08 30-FPS for $30.
Hey, then they'll come up with Madden 49.99fps soon :)
How about this: let's just not buy any EA games whatsoever as a gaming community and let this damn company die. EA has become synonymous with crap and needs to be relegated to the recycle bin. Give some other company a chance at the different sports licenses. They certainly can't do worse.
the wallet speaks loudest
I agree and hate EA but they do put out SOME (a hanfull) good games an to be fair the really good ones they only publish not produce ...
Burnout/Command & Conquer/Mercenaries2/OrangeBox /Fight Night/Skate/NBA Street/Fifa Street
and I actually liked NHL07 over 2K7 ... but live forget about it!
ummm. or just play your sports games on the 360.
If i remember correctly, peter moo is the president of EA. isnt he that britsh chav. who use to work for microsoft.
is he still at it. or was this game creaed on a 360 engine and ported
From this nightmare. What do people expect. Maybe we should expect less? You have lost your mojo. You lost it since Sports Talk Football hit on the genesis and you had to scramble to make Madden better. Its been some time when I actually bought an EA Sports game. I'm happy to go without it for another year. John R of EA, hope a dog poops on your foot. Hope you drop some serious market share and investors are spooked by your inconsistency. The walls of Jericho need to fall! You make money off idiots who think they are getting something new. The only thing new about EA is .... Ahhh .... Thinking .... Its coming....
Nope nothing new, same old pile of monkey doodooo
So is this gonna be across the whole ea sports line up? Fight Night for 360 60fps/ps3 30 fps Fifa for 360 60fps/ps3 30 fps etc...? I mean if this is the case then XBOX basically has a defacto exclusives on EA sports titles. Ea shouldn't even put the game out on ps3 if they are just gonna half ass ps3 users. Wow all gamers should stand up to ea for this sh!t. I don't care how much you prefer 360, fellow gamers are in trouble and they need everyone's help. Even 360 guys can see this is total bs
1up says it's running at 60fps in their hands on preview.
"After we spied NHL 08 a few months back, we wanted to know if it felt as good as it looked, having been inspired by the jump to 60 FPS. Now that we've had our hands all over it, we haven't been disappointed."
Why is so much cred given to a post on a Finnish NHL2K forum?
Your right I didnt even read the article. But I wouldnt be surprised if it was true. I have a 360 but its sad because its making the PS3 look bad. Every other developer is doing what it has to. Now if EA pulls this stunt next year. Thats just pathetic for EA not PS3. Im sure its more than possible on the PS3.
This basically confirms what some people have been speculating..its pure and simple MS paid or made a deal with EA to have ONLY their version at 60fps...hell they even confirmed this when Peter Moore said that EAs Sports game on the 360 would running at twice speed this year on the E3, they even had the Madden 360 launch party
you don't need to know rocket science to know that the only way the 60fps benefit the 360 is by the PS3 version not having it pure and simple business transaction masked behind excuses of development difficulties that for some mysterious reasons 2K Sports doesn't have and neither did EA last year
@DG: no, that is why MS made the announced on E3 that they will be the ones having it a 60fps (MS =60fsp..Sony well..not)
@Blitzed: haven't read it yet but I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't
Wait Was it really running at 60FPS last year?
NHL 08 on the PS3 runs at 60fps according to 1up (a site many Sony fans say is biased against the PS3). I would believe 1up before a NHL2K post.
yes Sony boys..the world IS out to get you
EA is lazy
M$ paid them off
EA is full of xbots
always the same sh!t.
A fanboy complaining about fanboys, saying it's all the same sh*t (did you copy and paste that comment from one of your previous posts?
Love the avatar though (Go Leafs Go)so I wont disagree with you (unless your a Devils fan)
NHL 08, along with Halo 3, are the only for sure buys on my list
...i bet the creator of this topic on n4g doesn't even speak finnish. he just saw the numbers 30 and 60 in an nhl forum
Is it just EA or is 2K's hockey going to be 30fps on the PS3 as well?
Maybe I am missing something but how is a posting on a Finnish 2K7 forum confirmation of anything. How is this even considered a review? It's a post (in Finnish no less) on the competions forum. I guess its 'confirmed' that the PS3 sucks since its posted on TeamXBox (sarcastic, it case you're not sure)
Maybe Merc3nary isn't the Sony fanboy you all claim he is, maybe he is just a Flameboy (just kidding Merc, but how does this get approved as news?)
just another reason to boycott ea
WHAT THE ****, EA?
As a long-time supporter of your NHL and Need For Speed series, this **** is really starting to piss me off.
I did NOT spend good money on a quality machine to have you tape up some lower quality games and pass them off as something new.
Needless to say, should this prove to be true, I will NOT be purchasing NHL '08.
2K, it may just be because of EA's stupidity, but you may just win this round.
Seriously, put some effort in, you ****s.
