    what's XBMC shabbs?

    It's XBOX Media Center... turns Gen 1 XBOX's into a powerful Media Center. It's very cool but you need to mod your XBOX to get it to work.

    Check it out: http://xbmc.org/

    A screenshot from my system (and it's in HD):



    It's great for managing videos, music, pictures and can run a ton of scripts (such as acessing YouTube etc... right from the console).

    booo Xbox
    YAY MODDED XBOX!!!!

    That's 2K10, not NHL 10.

    As far as I know, there has been no news about who the cover athlete will be. And I try to keep myself informed on these things. The game usually comes out early to mid September, at least for the next gen systems. I believe the PS2 release date is in november or december.

    I would have preferred if EA Sports had gone with NHL 2010 as a name (as in twenty ten)... I find it has a better ring to it, as opposed to NHL 10.

    From what they have released so far, fighting will be far improved, and will no longer be two punch knockouts. Fights will be first person, and you'll be able to jersey the guy, and stars won't fight as much anymore. Also, if you have won a fight momentum will be shifted your way. THey say this includes the fans waiving flags and chanting. They are trying to make momentum a bigger deal in this next game.

    Similarly, they want there to be scrums after the play, but these could result in penalties.

    There will also be more intense board battles and going into the corners can result in scrums.

    I have also read that they are revamping the passing. It is going to be less forgiving, but this means that you'll have a lot more control. Depending on how hard you press the pass button, it will decide on the power of the pass, from light to laser. Also, it will take more than just aiming in the general vicinity of the player. YOu will have to aim at the player if he is stationary, or aim ahead of him on outlet passes. Seems like a good concept. I've been wanting this for a while.

    EA Sports has said that the game will put more of a focus on the playoffs, but I'm not sure how they intend on doing this.

    And lastly, EA Sports Vancouver is calling this "The Orange Box" of sports games. There is speculation of what this could mean. Some people think it could include older versions of NHL, or possibly an arcady 3 on 3 version, like the one that came out in february.

    I don't think it's illegal to own a modded xbox. I didn't do the mod myself, and I didn't compile the XBMC code either...
