While most of America is fixated on the upcoming football season, which literally kicks off tonight, fans of another gritty sport are sharpening their blades in anticipation of the beginning of their sport's season. Professional hockey drops the puck in mid-September, but games based on the NHL are ready to skate now.
2K Sports' NHL 2K7 titles for the Xbox and Xbox 360 have completed development and are off for replication, says the publisher. The game will be on the market on September 12 and will retail for $59.99 on the Xbox 360 and $19.99 on the Xbox.
Though the versions for Microsoft's console are ready to skate, it appears as though the PlayStation 2 edition isn't quite ready to leave the locker room. 2K Sports says that the game will available "in late September." A PlayStation 3 version is also in the works and should be ready this holiday season.
