EA SPORTS officially cancels 'NBA Live 13'

StickSkills.com writes, "The first two NBA Live titles that EA SPORTS released on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 were far from desireable, and ultimately allowed the NBA 2K series to shine. While NBA Live 09 & NBA Live 10 found the magic again and began to make strides, NBA Elite 11 became the company’s first cancelled sports title."

NBA Live 13 looked garbage anyway

Have to give EA a ton of respect. This is now the 3rd year in a row they have canceled there NBA game . Instead of putting out a subpar product they just continue cancelling the game, and delaying it to next year.

This is something you never see with sports games. Have to give EA a lot of respect.

Yeah because they done it out of the goodness of their hearts as they wanted people to get value for their money.. LMFAO!

By cancelling the game again, chances are, it means many talented people will lose their jobs while the people most likely responsible for the cancellation, will still most likely be in their nice comfortable middle management/senior marketing positions.

True. They spend in the ratio of 5 in development to 15 in advertising, sort of, which shouldn't be. Lots of talent, bla bla, but to make more of the same, then no thanks.

I respect their decision but their taking too long and thats a big mistake...

The last live game was NBALIVE10 and it was amazing..i felt very good about live and thought they would build on it

I personally hate 2k basketball, its clunky and unresponsive...i bought one and will never buy another..im used to the free flow of live

Ea is just afraid of 2k's surge in popularity and their second guessing themselves.....they need to remember their the original since the 90's

You gotta love competition.

If only, if only 2K could make football games again.

With all the hype they tried to put behind it? The many youtube videos calling it the savior of basketball games, and stating they are not getting paid by E.A.?

Oh well.

This is just more evidence of why they went after the NFL license. They know 2k football games will steal a big chunk of the Madden market.

No surprise. NBA Live is garbage anyway 2K is king and EA knows it.

StrawHatPatriot1373d ago

It's amazing, based on how ahead of it's time NFL 2K5 was, if EA didn't get the exclusive license, Madden would've been like this.
