EA Sports NBA Wishlist Initiatives

It’s been a while since I posted any reminders about our Wishlist initiatives for the next sim title from EA Sports as we’re all gearing up for the release of NBA 2K12 and NBA Jam: On Fire Edition next week, but I would like to give them a quick mention today. First of all, to stress our desire for a PC version of EA’s next NBA sim, we are currently collecting signatures for our PC Petition; your support would be greatly appreciated, so please add your details in the Forum thread or send them in via email or PM if you’re concerned about privacy.

We are also compiling a detailed Wishlist with constructive feedback for the new Dev Team at EA Tiburon, who have been keeping track of what we’ve been posting so far in the thread. Finally, you can provide additional feedback via our Wishlist Survey, which we’ll also be sending in to the producers along with our other Wishlist materials. A big thanks once again to everyone who has helped out with these initiatives so far!

EA Sports NBA Initiatives: Wishlist, Survey & PC Petition

As Peter Moore mentioned earlier this week, it may take a while before EA’s future NBA sim games are able to compete with the NBA 2K series. However, here at the NLSC we’re looking to do our part by compiling a comprehensive Wishlist with detailed feedback for the new dev team at EA Tiburon. We’re also collecting additional feedback via our Wishlist Survey and attempting to stress the desire for a PC release with our PC Petition. We greatly appreciate everyone’s support with these initiatives so far, there’s still time to sign the Petition if you haven’t already and send in your feedback for the developers. Hopefully we can have a positive impact on the game!

Peter Moore: “It’ll take a while to get back”

EA’s Peter Moore, who until recently was the president of the EA Sports label, has commented on the future of the company’s NBA sim series. Speaking to IndustryGamers, Moore reiterated that EA Sports is committed to returning to the sim market next year with a quality product, but also admitted that it could “take a while” before the series can compete with NBA 2K again.

“We’re focused on building a great game for next year. The team has got the time to be able to look at everything that we need to do to make sure that we bring quality back up and be competitive. So we can go over the whole story again from last year – it was unfortunate, but we’re a brand and a company and a label that is very focused on building quality and we’re not just going to walk away from it; we’ve got a very, very talented team that’s already got stuff up and running even though it won’t ship this year, it’ll go next year. So we’ll be back.”

“It’ll take a while to get back, yeah. It’ll take us a few years maybe, but if that’s what it takes, that’s what it’ll be. We’re in our 20th year as a label… We’re not a short term player. It’s not going to happen overnight, but we’ll sit here 3, 4 years from now and hopefully we’ll be talking about what a great battle NBA 14 or 15 is versus their 14 or 15,” he concluded.

You can discuss Peter Moore’s comments here in the NLSC Forum. Remember that the new Dev Team are also keeping tabs on our Wishlist materials and welcoming our feedback and suggestions, so don’t forget to sign our PC Petition, post ideas in our Wishlist and provide additional feedback via our Wishlist Survey.

EA Sports NBA Wishlist & PC Petition Reminder

With all the NBA 2K12 and NBA Jam: On Fire Edition news as of late, last week I once again neglected to post the usual reminder about our Wishlist initiatives for EA Sports’ next NBA sim title. We are still collecting signatures for our PC Petition, an initiative we hope will demonstrate to EA Sports our enthusiasm for basketball gaming on the PC platform. We are also still compiling feedback for our Wishlist, so if you have bug reports, suggestions about features you want to see fixed, upgraded or added, things about NBA 2K that you like and would like to see EA Sports implement in their game or any constructive feedback you think would make the game better, be sure to post it ASAP. You can also provide additional feedback via our Wishlist Survey, the results of which we’ll also be submitting to the new Dev Team along with the main Wishlist. A big thanks as always to everyone who has signed the Petition and contributed to the Wishlist so far!
