EA Sports will probably not make any other patch because the sales are not good according to vgchartz.com

PS4 / 290 000 sale
Xbox one / 180 000 sale

    I woulda never thought!

    But there’s hope, EA is working on mascots and jerseys for ECHL leagues. That’ll help bump that number by about zero!

  • it's a great game!
  • I’m happy they are losing out on sales boys.

    You gotta evolve man. Can’t get complacent or comfy with being mediocre.

    Dammit if I was in charge of this franchise.. you guys would build a statue of me within a year, I know what this game needs but i’ll be damned if I share any more of my $1,000,000 ideas

    I mean you sell a million copies at $80 a piece thats $80 000 000 now theyre sellinless than half so like what $35 000 000? Rammer cost this company $45 000 000 in one year alone and he still has a job? Just wow lol

    That doesnt even include the lost HUT income another 500 000 players would have brought in rammer easily cost this company $100 000 000 this year alone
  • And you gotta think, "How many of those sales occured when the game was at 50% off" because they knew the numbers were weak?

    Seriously, I hope they will learn. You don't appease a certain fan, you get people that hear about the game being fun and they buy it. That's what I do with Fifa. I'm not a soccer fan but the soccer game is fun to play, therefor I play it. I'll do it the odd year with NBA and the odd year with football and baseball too. I'm really only a hockey fan.

    Make a game that plays good and people will come regardless of if they are interested in the sport or not. You don't have to love hockey to know that going around the ice and hitting people while trying to score goals sounds fun as hell. Remember when they were sports game of the year? Aim for that and the numbers will follow. I've got about 20 friends on my list alone that if they heard the game was better (as opposed to worse every year after year) then they will jump right back on the train.
  • While I hope the sales end up poor as the game remains unchanged year after year, this data is only as of Dec 2nd. That's over 3 weeks before Christmas and well before their year-end markdown. Hopefully it's been doing poor since Dec. 2nd but for sure too early to make the judgement that it's a selling failure.

    EA has convinced me on PS4. I'm trading in everything buying the show and a refurbished PS4. EA has proven we are only money symbols. I'm not buying anything EA until I know it's worth it again. 1991-2018 . RIP NHL.

    And there is too people which don't have enough cash for buy it, I think its was a bulshit that close ps3 game with NHL legacy that was too early and in Europe there is most of country where people just obtain PS3, look people like Romania Bulgaria Croatia etc their salary is less than the price of PS4 or XBOX ONE its a reality, there is almost of these country where people still playing NHL 09 on PS2 or PC.

    Not all people own PS4 & XBOX ONE

    Why they don't put in on PC and PS3 ?
  • Are you sure its official this website? I've a doubts, in the frame "region" there is juste "America, Japan , and PAL" what means PAL?

    Thanks

    I thinks there is really to do a thing for that from EA "with all respect I have to them" because like the title of the topic its bad.

    I saw the others stats from vgchartz and when we see for example NHL 99 it was sell around most one million of piece, but that can be explain because it was the first game in 3D "sorry I don't know if 3d is appropriate term" and too it was on the first time national teams in the game, so I think it need a big renew like a FIFA hockey game with KHL, national really teams because when you take england national team and play with unknown player I don't think england man are enjoy about that, that can be take like a joke .. Like if in these country there isn't hockey players, that seems like there is just Canada and NHL which playing hockey in world, and I know hockey it from Canada and how there so best player in this country like in america but the game seem most close and not open to the world, sure now there is Champions hockey leagues and one leagues add on the games but that not like when you play FIFA where you can be playing the really soccer and be qualified in UEFA and others soccer's CUP, when you play in a country you can be playing the cup of the country like the cup of Italy or Germany and that independently of the championship, in NHL you can just doing one season with European leagues and a franchise with just NHL not with ECHL AHL and I don't talk about others leagues and now that's monotone it's not attractive for player's if it wasn't the internet how was it the game? If it don't have EASHL HUT how was it is? If in FIFA there is not network it could be an attractive game but NHL sorry but not.

    What do you think?

    Why online game is bad?? Why does EA influence the games and makes NHL waste and arcade? Why does EA not accept what a bad game is and just wants profit and money for packages ??? Then EA can not be surprised to lose the player. Bad players play 1 league and in the NHL 15, 16, 17 they played the max 5 league. This is the wrong direction for the NHL to play in the future. Leave it to the players and also think that if he has a good team so it should be seen on the ice !!!!
    A player with OV 95 must be better than a player with OV 80 !! The difference must be seen !!In NHL 18 all players are the same, there is no difference in the game and it is bad !! Thanks for the answer ...
  • i thought rammer was trying to attract more casuals to buy the game this year?? another fail by rammer...time for ben ross to take over as lead producer.

    ps: those numbers for sure are wrong. now way ps4 sold more copies than xbone. also pretty sure ea makes alot more money off microtranscations than actual game sales when it comes to its sports titles. reason why the try to implement that 🎃🎃🎃🎃 in start wars battlefront.

    This whole statement makes no sense. How would you be surprised at all if a game sold more on PS4? The PS4 has sold more than twice as many systems as xbone. Also, while yes they may make more money off micro-transactions than games sales, they are making $0 from people who don't buy the game. There is a strong correlation to games sales and micro-transactions.
