I will probably wait for it to come on PC before I pick it up just because of the mod potential. That said, I am sitting here pondering why EA has decided to stop producing their NHL series on PC; so much so, I am binging on discussions on the topic and the opinions are mostly split as two possible reasons. 1) it was no longer profitable and they decided to focus on consoles only, hence Madden and NHL are only console exclusives and has been for some time now whereas FIFA with a wider demographic still gets it on PC. 2) Piracy reasons which I guess you could roll into the profitability reasons. With Origin as their gatekeeper of sorts, it would be easier for them to mitigate the losses and still make it worth while.
Sadly, I think people like myself who grew up on the series and loved spending inordinate amount of time customizing the team jerseys, arena advertisements, etc. are no longer the core audience so it's not a big loss to them.
