The PlayStation 4 is just 10 days away from launch. With that, EA Sports has released a new batch of screens for its upcoming baller title. While most are impressive, other seem to fall a little flat for the next-gen console.
Well EA cancel NBA Live and try again next year.....
not horrible, but damn EA is going to have a long winter
Lol I'm in tears over here
it's like a team that knows they're not going to make the playoffs right from training camp but still have to play because they're in the league, that's EA right now.
It just makes me wonder too about the original NBA LIVE that got canned a few years back. Maybe this is just a recycling of the older model and things they wanted to implement. Now, just with new "skin."
Yeah...I don't know if that was by design or just a coincidence. But, they do remind me of the "cartoon" look that NBA Street had. Honestly, I'm tired of pics. Just give me a some damn gameplay...from the angle that it is supposed to be played and let me judge. I think that the 2K trailer kind of took some confidence away from the Live team because we have seen nothing but dribbling...no shots, dunks, post play, defense. You know, the things that matter ASIDE from graphics.
Yea it seems to be a trend with most EA sports games, they tend to stylize things way to much. And I agree I also want some un altered gameplay from both EA and 2k. 2k has had some nice looking trailers and screenshots but i'm curious to how much of it we will notice in game. I also want to see the dribble tek EA has been touting against actual defenders.
Exactly...the dribbling looks good...but in isolation. I want to see how the defense responds to those dribbling moves. As for 2K we kind of know that, at bare minimum, it will be like 2K on current gen. I'm fine with that. But EA had the onus on them to prove that they are back. As of right now, they haven't shown anything to convince me to even try the game...let alone purchase it.
This would look fine, if 2K didnt make their game. It blows this out of the water. Too bad EA, too bad. I really was excited for their game and the new Ignite engine and it has been nothing but dissapointing since the very first gameplay vid.
lol What EA sports game truly looks Next Gen? Name 2... Any see MLB the Show Sneak Peak or NBA 2k Next Gen?
Madden is the closest and it's starting to show it's age behind the repeat use of stacking that same old engine.
2K football was the last franchise to bring in something "different" in terms of ye'old football application.
@LaWiiG...No doubt!!! I am hoping against hope that the NFL won't remain exclusive at the end of this year.
EA give me a next-gen NBA Street.....
Only if they took it back to basic. They went too liberal on the sequels to both the NBA and Fifa Street games to the point where I didn't feel like I was really playing that respective sport. But if they could manage to make something simple and fun for those two franchises I would love to see 1 or both of those titles make a reappearance.
anything special i have to do , to get past the 600x338 SS resolution ?
My favorite memories of this franchise are way back in the SNES/Genesis days. Back when you could turn off fouls and just push people around, LOL :), so much fun. But I haven't liked Live since the PSone days, it never looked great or played all to well ever. Which is really sad, EA has possibly the best Hockey, Futbol (soccer to Americans) and Football games out in the market. But Baseball and Basketball efforts have been terrible, both of those saw their best days in 16-bits.
I know graphics aren't everything, but I just don't understand why they are having so much trouble making a NBA Live game that can compete. There once was a time when 2k had to sell their games for $20, just to get people to check it out. This situation makes me think of what could have been had the nfl not awarded EA the exclusivity deal. I truly enjoy the new Madden, but I feel Tiburon would have been usurped without the monopoly.
They should just stick to making NBA Jam.
I feel like they SHOULD do that! Then they could avoid the comparisons to 2k
Ea makes me so angry. Throws out so many shit games bc they know they are getting sales
how about the 2k fan boys stfu and leave the page. if your buying 2k shut up leave live alone. Im still looking forward to live. Graphics do not make the whole game! if you think that then you my friend are a terrible excuse for a gamer. 2k has always felt stiff and unrealistic( hence arcade style basketball game) as for live, the gameplay has always been better than 2k. but terrible gamers like you all are blinded by the difference in graphics. until i get my hands on both next-fen titles i will not be ignorant and make comments on either game. both games look good. I'm more of a fan of the ignite engine( which increase every attribute of the game i.e A.I, player movement, collisions, physics etc.) rather than the eco-motion engine( increases graphics, and how many animations can be stored) so I'll give live the chance first
WHY IS 2K FANS ON THIS PAGE MAKE NO SENSE....LIVE WAS NEVER A GRAPHICS TYPE OF GAME SINCE 2K ON DREAMCAST CAME OUT..GO POST ON NBA 2K14
