NHL GameCenter Live has gone live for PSN subscribers everywhere, but is this semi-expensive streaming service worth dropping the puck for? Check out Gameplaybook's exclusive impressions!
Eh, should have just been ESPN like on Xbox Live
I love my hockey, dont get me wrong...but I also know hockey isn't exactly the "big" sport these days. Additionally, its kinda crap that they stated if you had PSN+ you got it free...when in reality its just the app that is free. If you want to watch any kind of full hockey game you need to pony up extra cash. No thanks...I will stick to my cable provider for my local team coverage.
I think that exclusivity contract, which proabbly only mentions the PS3, would cause a problem.
Yeah, I wish hockey was more popular. But this certainly beats nothing...and beats a cricket channel, at that. :P
hopefully a nba app is on the way. thats the one i would be the most excited for
Can't get into NBA, it's so boring and scores like 112-98, same thing over and over. The rims 10 feet tall and the players are pushing 7 foot, what talent, NOT. I would rather watch paint dry than the NBA.
So what sport would you want? Football-slow Baseball-Super Slow Soccer-awesome but not mainstream in the States The NBA is more exciting than you think.
But ESPN isn't getting any game you want. While I love ESPN, you're missing games from every sport. It's got good content, but it's limited. This NHL service is awesome if you care about a specific team and don't get to watch them on TV. I see maybe 5 Pittsburgh games a year. Now I can watch as many as I want. Huge difference. I can make sure I see every Crosby vs Ovechkin matchup. I would much rather PSN build up content like this than picking a few channels that show a bit of everything.
ESPN on the 360 is ok, but has some strange stuff on it. I like the soccer on it, seems to be quite alot of it. But yes I like PS3 approach with the MLB TV and NHL gamecenter.
I love the gamecenter app on the ps3, makes it great to check out the results of a game, thing is gamecenter itself is abit pricey, but im going to save up and buy myself a subscription and most probably cancel my cable provider lol since almost everything i watch nowadays is either on my pc,360 and ps3.
