EA really needs to stop lol. They better be lucky they have NFL exclusive rights otherwise they'd be scrambling with madden the same way they're scambling with live. The best thing I can say is take a couple of years off and then re-introduce NBA Live becuase if EA keeps going down this path Live is going to lose whatever recognition it has left.
They already did that! haha
EA are retards. All that money. All that experience with NBA games. All those developers. ...and they can't even bring a solid NBA title for nextgen.
the best and smartest thing they can do now is just release it weeks before 2k15 comes out, at least they will make some sales. oh wait 2k15 has an OCT 9 release date. NBA LIVE is screwed
Agreed. Honestly, is 3 weeks going to make NBA Live 15 THAT much better? What's going to happen is the people who love the NBA Live series (Small, but still a dedicated community) will probably purchase 2K15 because they won't wait 3 weeks for Live.
And release it cheap as possible.
Where have you been. After Live 10 they were going to come out with Elite 11. Then after the demo came out....and was a mess with a jesus glitch (google it) the ended up scrapping the game. And 2-3 years later all they could muster was the lackluster NBA Live 14. So they had plenty of time to hit us over the head with a bad arse NBA game. Imagine if 2K had 2-3 years to make a B ball game!!!
Anyone actually buy this crap?
I got the last one for Christmas lol .
Lmfao!!!!! Dear, EA please stop
It's always something with this franchise. Just drop basketball and give me a next gen Fight Night.
Thank you! Please EA just spend those resources on a new fight night. Let 2K have basketball
Yes bring back fight night please.
At this point I feel a fully realized BOXING game from EA would sell better then NBA live. I remember when LIVE was THE nba game and 2k was the new kid on the block. How times change. Maybe before I die I can get another football game besides EAs
Fear & Intimidation
Lol damn Ea it's been a great run but you gotta stop this now
Just cancel that garbage, it's gonna bomb anyway.
Funny how sports games go; Sony owns Baseball *MLB the Show* with no competition this year 2k owns Basketball *NBA2k* with NBA Live as poor competition EA owns American Football and Hockey *Madden* with no competition and *NHL* with no competition and they have owned Soccer/Football *FIFA* with Konami and ProEvo as very strong competition. My cousins in Brasil used to swear by Winning11 over FIFA games, and my friends and I ONLY played Winning11 '07 back in the day. What would happen to EA without owning the NFL game?
I have zero faith in NBA Live. This is sad but the truth. It's not like EA are THAT bad, I still buy FIFA every year and it's a quality football(soccer) game but their dev team for NBA Live is just...untalented.
Once EA loses rights to Madden games their sports division will be irrelevant.
it most likely failed certification and they arent stating that. not saying the game is good or bad because of it but a lot of times unexpected delays are because of this
