3 on 3 NHL Arcade is out on XBLA today

… but PlayStation 3 owners know that it’s been out on PSN for six days.

Man, I just won’t shut up about 3 on 3 NHL Arcade. Hell, you guys are probably tired of hearing me urge you to buy it, even before I had actually played the damn thing. Well, now I have played it, and my opinion hasn’t really changed all that much. There’s a full Destructoid review coming, though, so all I’ll say is this: at the very least, give the demo a shot (see what I did there?).

Here’s the launch trailer. It showcases the game’s eight power-ups and accompanying voice-overs (“LITTLE GOALIE!”), as well as some of the trick shots that you can pull off. If you don’t smile or laugh at least once while watching this video, then you might not have a soul.

If you’re hungry for more, check out 3 on 3 NHL Arcade on Xbox Live Arcade — the full version is 800 Microsoft Points (ten bucks). You can view some screenshots here, and there’s more gameplay footage here.
