NBA Live 13 hitting XBLA, PSN for $20?

If a new report proves accurate, EA Sports' NBA Live 13 will arrive this October through Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network as a $20 download. The report comes from an interview IRBGamer held with an EA Sports representative this week at the GameStop managers' conference in San Antonio, Texas. (NBA Live 13, PS3, Xbox 360)

EA can't handle competition just look at the status of Live...Just imagine if 2K could make NFL games too.

EA can't handle competition?? What happen to NHL2k?
CerebralAssassin  +   878d ago
True. But the game market is mostly into nba and nfl. 2k does very well in both of those fields. Or at least did when they made football. Based on sales and popularity I'd say the nba and nfl are first. Followed by fifa. Then tiger woods then NHL. And NHL 2k is still pretty popular at that.

Dude, Fifa outsells Madden, NBA 2k, and NCAA football combined. Also NYC_Gamer - a foot note, AllPro 2k8 only sold like 90k copies, if its such a superior game, than it should sell more regardless of NFL license...

I agree, because when NFL 2K5 came out it destroyed Madden 05. Sadly it is the reason why EA brought the NFL license. A cowardly way to avoid competition. However, Live for 20 bucks? Will it be better then NBA 2K13, this will only work if it's as good or better. If it's going to be on the arcade, it won't have much content being roughly 2 to 3 gigs.

You know, I am still heated about EA being the only company making NFL games:| It's almost like having one console out.

Hopefully this comes to the Vita. The Psp is getting NBA 2k13 this year while the Vita has no announced Basketball games this year. Please make this available on the Ps Vita online store.

Ha..keep dreaming for a 2K Basketball on Vita. Haven't you heard? Vita is all about playing 20 year old PS1 games! Get excited for your 20 PS1 titles that were just announced! ;)

I hope it's true and I hope it has online capabilities w/ friends. 2k did this to EA/Madden a while back when 2K released NFL 2K?? for $20 as a boxed product. And it sold very well. Touche
