Now that the BTHC has happened, when will we finally get our NCAA Hockey Video Game?!?!?!

Seriously though, that’s probably the only way I’ll buy a new hockey video game.

In that case, I think it’s safe to say you’ve already purchased your last hockey game :D

I don’t even think I’d buy a college hockey game. Even if it did miraculously get made, it would almost certainly be a pile of crap.

If NCAA football couldn’t make it, I have a better chance of finding Kate Upton and Jennifer Lawrence in my bedroom when I get home tonight than an NCAA hockey game ever being made.

EA Sports NCAA Football did very well, but ran into a huge pile of lawsuits, chief among them the O’Bannon antitrust suit. I don’t think EA Sports has officially stated that was the reason they discontinued the franchise, but I think it’s a safe bet they didn’t feel the need to continue with all of the legal issues. In any case, the NCAA contract with them ends in June of this year, so that hockey game will never be released.
