Summary: I pre-purchased the game to get the code and I'm still waiting. I contacted EA and they told me to contact Amazon since I purchased it through them. Made an email to Amazon and never heard back. I pre-purchased NHL 14 so I'm hoping I get a code that works. In the future don't purchase a game in advance.
After a week I punched this game into a plastic powder

Summary: I love hockey. I like PS3 games. I hate this. I liked it at first but it's virtually impossible to play and the internet games rarely work; it consistently looses connection to the other player. It can't be my internet because COD works without fail. It's something to do with the EA server. EA are definitely all about the money and not the acual gameplay.
Summary: game still has a lot of bugs, freezes during online play, you loose all stats and get a DNF % , contacted EA, they said to post a msg on the forums, I did, and lord and behold, it is not EASPORTS that supports you, but it's consumers like us, because of that XP system, the more you talk, the more rewards you get, so it keeps clients engaged on forums, yet no one works for EA, thus no solution, just a rambling of trial and errors suggestions, no patch issued to fix this...
