The lights are on
NHL fans are curious about the title's transition to the new-generation of consoles, and two new videos for NHL 15 give a look at the game as you'll likely experience it.
The two videos below are about the game's overhead cameras, but you can also see the game's physics and skill stick works in practice – shorn of the quick edits and replay theater footage that accompanies most sizzle trailers for video games.
Here's another video with the overhead camera also showing off the game's physics and skill stick mechanics
NHL 15 comes out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (the game will also appear on Xbox 360 and PS3, footage not shown) on September 9.
For more on the game, here's another trailer that dropped recently with some more cinematic angles on gameplay and the fans in the stands.

Looks great! GO WILD!
After watching these videos and listening to Doc I'm leaning more on not getting this. Doc sounds so bad compared to real life. I'll wait for the demo on August 26th
Yeah I'm not expecting Doc to go nuts for every goal, but he does seem rather subdued compared to how he normally sounds. Of course, those were some early game goals so who knows. I do like the intro presentation a LOT more now, even if the actual gameplay seems largely unchanged.
Can't wait to check it out. Let's go Islanders!
Here's one thing I hope they fix: I don't want to have to put in the code for the season's alternate jerseys just about every time I play. This has been a recurring issue across the series; maybe they can fix it this time?
That Play-by-play audio sounds like total crap!
Oh man... that crowd animation. I haven't bought an NHL game since 2011. I'm definitely picking this on up.
