Wasn't it like completely useless last time? Basically just for show instead of actually adding something to your Pro?

Ok I was just wondering. If they were going back to the 10 system where they had equipment with boost slots and these all had 3 slots, it would be worth pre-ordering. But if not then count me out.

Does anyone know if these Bauer Booster packs are available through European Gamestops as well or is it a US only type deal?

So it is now avalable for pre-order at EB Games/Gamestop? and last year i put the code in for that, and i never received the gear. It wasnt in the Edit Player or Create Player area so i gave up.

So is the goalie pack from best buy just cosmetic too? I would assume so but it doesnt really say exactly what the "boost" is. I dont like being unsure of what im preordering, even though it is a bonus

Just order this high-speed hockey title for Xbox 360 or PS3, and you'll get a code via e-mail to unlock this Best Buy exclusive, goalie-skills-enhancing advantage.

It will give your netminder the extra boost he needs to be the cornerstone of your franchise. Stonewall your opponents with awe-inspiring desperation saves covering every possible angle.

I wish they'd just make the gloves black, white and grey...I don't care if there is blue in the stick or the skates, but a generic color glove can go with any uniform you are wearing.

They called it a boost pack last year (NHL 11) also and it doesn't boost anything. It's all cosmetic.

I know and I didnt like being mislead. But the goalie description DOES say "skills-enhancing advantage" theres gotta be something to it..r-right?

I agree with you. I wish they were more generic looking since not all of us are flashy people.

Lucky for me though, If they were to add any colour to the equipment, I'm glad it was blue. This years Bauer Pack looks nice to me.
