ATTN GAMERS: EA Big Head Hockey

A buddy of mine just sent me this link about a new hockey game EA will be releasing. Here are the details:

EA will officially announce NHL Arcade tomorrow, a three-on-three hockey game for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, IGN reports. It is not, we repeat not, a re-release of EA's NHL 94 for the Genesis.

Now that you've come to terms with that distressing fact, what is NHL Arcade? It's "lightning-paced, no rules hockey" according to IGN Sports, with "game-changing power-ups" and giant-noggined professional hockey players. And it runs just ten bucks.

Sounds like a new version of NHL Hitz and from what I understand it will include real players.

I love my NHL sims but its also fun to have some arcadey stuff to play around with as well. I'm looking forward to this announcement.
