One of the details we discovered with yesterday NHL 16 features being released was that it was only coming to PS4 and Xbox One, but  today it makes more sense as the older consoles will be getting their own game. NHL 16 Legacy edition will take all the most popular modes from NHL with updated rosters and schedules. This is really a great idea by EA and we hope that we see this brought to their other sports titles.
