Wayback Wednesday: FIBA Teams in NBA Live 08

Team USA, one of the FIBA Teams in NBA Live 08

This is Wayback Wednesday, your midweek blast from the past! In this feature, we dig into the archives, look back at the history of basketball gaming, and indulge in some nostalgia. Check in every Wednesday for retrospectives and other features on older versions of NBA Live, NBA 2K, and old school basketball video games in general. You’ll also find old NLSC editorials re-published with added commentary, and other flashback content. This week, I’m taking a look back at the FIBA teams in NBA Live 08.

Bonus teams and content are something that we arguably take for granted in basketball video games these days. Both NBA Live and NBA 2K used to feature Decade All-Star teams, and of course, 2K has boasted an impressive selection of historical teams in recent years. Euroleague teams have also been featured in NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, as well as the past few NBA 2K titles. However, the interest in bonus teams really picked up after a selection of national squads was added in NBA Live 08, along with a mode representing the FIBA World Championship (now the FIBA World Cup).

The FIBA teams were a popular choice for bonus content in a few NBA Live titles, and I’m sure that many gamers would like to see them return. Let’s take a look back…way back…

Wayback Wednesday: Online Team Play in NBA Live 08

Gilbert Arenas dribbles the basketball in NBA Live 08

This is Wayback Wednesday, your midweek blast from the past! In this feature, we dig into the archives, look back at the history of basketball gaming, and indulge in some nostalgia. Check in every Wednesday for retrospectives and other features on older versions of NBA Live, NBA 2K, and old school basketball video games in general. You’ll also find old NLSC editorials re-published with added commentary, and other flashback content. This week, I’m taking a look back at Online Team Play.

As the years have gone by, the online experience has become more and more significant in basketball video games. I personally didn’t have a lot of interest in online modes for many years; a slower connection didn’t help matters, and for the most part, I was simply more interested in the offline experience. That’s changed somewhat over the past couple of years, as I’ve come to enjoy regular games of 2K Pro-Am. However, there was another online mode that caught my attention almost a decade ago, and appropriately enough, it was the forerunner to the Pro-Am concept: Online Team Play in the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of NBA Live 08.

At the time, it was something of a groundbreaking addition for basketball video games, and a concept that both EA Sports and Visual Concepts should perhaps think about implementing once more. Let’s take a look back…way back…

Next Gen Title Screens for NBA Live 06-08

Next Gen Title Screen for NBA Live 08 PC

You may have noticed that I’ve been using a few more screenshots from the Xbox 360 versions of NBA Live in some of my recent articles. That’s because I picked up an Elgato capture card not too long ago, and I’ve been keen to put it to use to grab some media for both written articles and video features.

The thought occurred that I could take screenshots of the title screens from the Xbox 360 releases, and create some custom title screens for their PC equivalents. It’s taken some careful and creative cropping, and in the case of NBA Live 07, I’ve had to use the pre-boot screen as the main title screen didn’t really suit the 512×512 file that the PC version uses. In any case, I’ve come up with some “next gen” title screens – well, next generation for the time the games came out, anyway – for NBA Live 06-08. Download them here:

A few previews:

As I’ve said before, I don’t have as much time to mod these days, especially when it comes to committing to creating any current roster updates. However, I do still like to dabble here and there when an idea comes to mind, so whenever I can set aside the time, I’ll be sure to upload the occasional release every now and again.
