Soon I hope. I seriously cannot wait for this game!

A GiantBomb team for the online league would be awesome.

A week or two before the game comes out... isn't that how it always works?

I'm pretty sure. Since it is EA I think 2 weeks is about right. Madden demo was released today and Madden comes out August 12th so that's about 2 weeks. If it holds true I guess that means anywhere from August 30th to September 1st the demo should be out. Awesome.

August 21 could definitely happen. People might say that it'll be two weeks before it's retail release (so the 28th for the demo) since that's what Madden and Tiger Woods did, but Madden and Tiger Woods don't have any direct competition, and NHL2K9 has already released their demo. This differs from last year substantially since NHL 2K8 didn't release their demo until after the retail game hit store shelves.

Yah, it's out on PS3 now and feels a whole lot better than 2K9.  At least in the demo, 2K9 felt really slow and the arenas looked like scale models covered in one to many coats of gloss.  09 on the other hand plays pretty well so far.  And putting Sidney Crosby into the boards is allways fun.

I really hate his whispy mustache.
