11/12/2014 - Arcade Token Mailing 2014 UPDATE

Arcade Token Mailing 2014 UPDATE


It has been six long months since we first announced our 2014 Arcade Token Give-Away. Never before have we seen such a response to this fun give-away. We are truly honored by the massive influx of emails and requests. Unfortunately with this increase in popularity we also saw a rise in web site related catastrophes. Once again our inbox crashed, however instead of sending rejected emails back to their sender, the overflow was instead sent to the email address of our webmaster and other members of this site. Also, some people used the email address from last year, which is no longer active. Those emails were also redirected to our webmaster and our web site staff.

The good news is after six long months of sorting emails and stuffing envelopes we are now ready to make our first postal drop this week! All the envelopes are ready to go. We will also begin the first round of prize winner notifications. Be sure to check your email and please respond ASAP to the prize winner notification.

How The Prize Give Away Works:

  • If you are selected to win a free game or other prize you will be contacted by email. You will be asked to pick your prize from a list. All prizes are first come, first served. Please respond within 48 hours or you might miss your chance to win a prize. The only people who do not get to pick their prize are the Spam Prize and the First Response Prize Winners. These people will get special, deluxe prizes.

Thanks again for all your support. We are very proud that our yearly Collectible Arcade Token Give Away is such a huge success! We could not have done it with out you!

And one last thing... We have hired a company to help us with the mailing for next year. Hopefully that will mean smooth sailing for the 2015 give-away.

Best Wishes! Your friends at DigThatBox.com.

11/10/2014 - Exclusive NHL Legends Now Available in NHL 15
November 10, 2014 – Your dream NHL lineup is now ready for you to create. Electronic Arts announced that starting today, NHL® Legends are available in NHL 15 Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT) for the PlayStation®4 and Xbox One consoles. News on HUT Legends on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will be shared soon. With over 8 million games played and 34% player growth from NHL 14 to NHL 15, Hockey Ultimate Team continues to be the most popular mode in the NHL franchise. With NHL Legends, there’s even more reason to play and improve or create the perfect team of superstars from the past and present.  Imagine what’s possible when you have current Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby picking up speed through the neutral zone alongside former greats Mario Lemieux and the ‘Russian Rocket’ Pavel Bure, while Ray Bourque patrols your blue line and Patrick Roy mans your goal crease. Each Legend will have their own distinct look, unique attributes, and may be available in Gold Packs. Watch the NHL15 Hockey Ultimate Legends trailer here to see some of your favorite players come to life in the game.

Throughout the year, NHL 15 will be releasing special edition items to celebrate historic performances and milestones by these Legends. Learn more about these historic NHL moments and limited edition items at our
HUT Legends website.

Full List of HUT Legends

Wayne Gretzky
Quite simply the best player to ever lace them up. When you consider that he had more assists (1,963) than anyone had points, it really puts his offensive dominance into perspective. Take control of The Great One, only in Hockey Ultimate Team. 

Mario Lemieux
With an unparalleled combination of size, speed and skill, Lemieux was arguably the most physically talented hockey player to ever play the game. Experience why they called him Super Mario.

Patrick Roy
With three Conn Smythe Trophies and the most playoff wins of all-time, it’s not hard to see why many consider Roy the greatest goalie of all time. His impact on the goaltending world can still be felt today, as he popularized the butterfly style used by most goaltenders today. 

Ray Bourque
The highest scoring defenseman of all-time threw over 6,000 pucks in the net during his NHL career, with many of those bulging the twine.

Joe Sakic
Burnaby Joe will go down as one of the best players and captains of this generation. He surpassed the 100 point plateau six times in his NHL career and won two Stanley Cup® Championships. Unleash Sakic’s world-class wrist shot on helpless opponents in HUT. 

Nicklas Lidstrom
He made it look easy. With extraordinary awareness, stick work and positioning, Lidstrom was dominant on the defensive side of the puck. The seven-time Norris Trophy winner would be a perfect fit for any team.

Pavel Bure
When Bure was on the ice, it looked like a video game. It wasn’t just his explosiveness that separated him from the rest; it was his ability to pull off high-skill plays at incredible speed that made him almost impossible to stop.

Eric Lindros
For a period of time in the 1990’s Eric Lindros was the most physically dominant player in the NHL. At 6’4” and 240 pounds, ‘The Big E’ could punish you on the ice and the scoreboard.

Mike Bossy
During his era, Bossy was the best pure goal scorer the NHL had ever seen. He is the fastest player to score 100 goals and is still the record holder for most goals-per-game.

Luc Robitaille
Lucky Luc wasn’t the fastest skater or the most gifted player on the ice, but he always had a knack for being in the right spot at the right time. He still stands as the NHL’s highest scoring left winger of all-time. 

Mike Modano
Drafted 1st overall in 1988 by the Minnesota North Stars, Modano lived up to the hype. He was one of the best skaters of his time and a prolific goal scorer – finishing his career as the highest scoring American-born player in NHL history.   

Jari Kurri
Kurri was an integral part of the Edmonton Oilers dynasty in the 1980’s and was known as Gretzky’s right-hand man. He finished his career as the highest scoring European player in NHL history with 601 goals and 797 assists.

Doug Gilmour
A fan favorite wherever he played, Gilmour was nicknamed ‘Killer’ because of his physical style of play despite his small stature. He played a complete game and is a perfect fit anywhere in your HUT lineup.

NHL 15 is the start of a new generation of hockey videogames, where the sights, sounds and feel of the fastest team sport on the planet come to life in a way players have never experienced before. Featuring 12 Player NHL Collision Physics and Real Puck Physics, NHL 15 captures the hard-hitting chaos and unpredictability of the game of hockey. Players are immersed in authentic arenas across the National Hockey League and hang on every play called by an all-new broadcast commentary team led by NBC Sports legends Mike “Doc” Emrick and Eddie Olczyk.

NHL 15 is now available at retail stores throughout North America and Europe on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One the all-in-one games and entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Xbox 360 games and entertainment system.
