EA Sports has posted a new blog and video showcasing the defensive improvements that have been made in NBA Live 15. Noticeable improvements include one-on-one on-ball defense, rebounding and blocked shots, and help defense from AI teammates.
The blog also goes into detail on the various defensive adjustments that can be made in this year’s game.
Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! This is a feature that I post every Friday in which I give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to basketball video games, the real NBA or another area of interest to our community, either as a list of five items or in the form of a Top 5 countdown.
If you’re reading this article, it’s probably because you love basketball video games. If you don’t, then the NLSC probably isn’t the website for you, because that’s pretty much what we’re all about. However, no matter how much you love getting into some virtual hoops, there will be times when you find yourself getting really frustrated with basketball video games.
These are the moments where you have to fight the urge to toss the controller across the room. These are the moments where you shut down the game and don’t touch it again until the next day. These are the moments where you switch to a first person shooter or a button mashing beat ’em up to blow off some steam. These are the Top 5 Frustrating Moments in Basketball Video Games.

A new developer blog has been posted over on the official NBA Live 15 website, discussing EA Sports’ partnership with Synergy Sports, as well as its impact on this year’s game. It details the different data that Synergy provides them with, and how it’s put to use in-game as far as shaping each player’s tendencies and performance.
Synergy data also drives NBA Live 15’s BIG Moments and NBA Rewind games, with data being made available to EA Sports as soon as a game is finished. The data is then used to create challenges based on the game’s stats and any noteworthy highlight plays, such as buzzer beaters.
Check out the blog for more details, and feel free to have your say in the comments below, as well as here in the NBA Live 15 section of the Forum.

The Xbox Achievements for NBA Live 15 have been revealed over at XboxAchievements.com. At a glance, they’re pretty much the same as NBA Live 14’s Achievements, and don’t appear to reveal anything that’s yet to be announced, given the developer blog on game modes that was posted last week.
It seems safe to assume that the PlayStation Trophies will be identical, perhaps with an additional trophy that will be awarded for unlocking all other trophies.
