GamerHub.TV has posted a short interview with NBA Live 15 producer Ryan Ferwerda, conducted earlier this month at Gamescom 2014. Ryan discusses the evolution of NBA Live 14, and what to expect from NBA Live 15. You can watch it below, or check it out here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video.
For anyone who may be concerned about the footage that’s being used in the interview, it is actually the CGI Trailer for NBA Live 14, and not NBA Live 15 gameplay. Although we’ve received several screenshots of NBA Live 15, we are yet to see the game in action. With September right around the corner and October 7th rapidly approaching, I assume that will change very soon.
As always, feel free to sound off with your thoughts in the comments below, as well as join in the discussion in the NBA Live 15 section of the NLSC Forum.
A couple of new screenshots have been added to the Steam listing for NBA 2K15, featuring James Harden and John Wall. You can check them both out below, as well as over in our NBA 2K15 Screenshots gallery.
2K Spain has also posted a PlayStation 4 promo spot for NBA 2K15, featuring some in-game clips of Ricky Rubio going up against Stephen Curry and James Harden. Watch it below, or catch it here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video. Rubio is set to appear on the Spanish cover of NBA 2K15, although as other sites have pointed out, the photo they’ve used makes him look a little glum about the whole arrangement.

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.
While Dynasty remains my favourite depth mode in NBA Live, I’ve very much enjoyed BIG Moments in NBA Live 14, and was definitely glad to hear that it will be returning in NBA Live 15. Back in March, I posted a countdown of my top five BIG Moments to that point, but plenty of new Moments have been added to the game since then, right through to the end of the 2014 NBA Finals.
So, with the 2014 season in the books, and the 2015 season almost upon us, I thought that I’d take a look back and rank my top five BIG Moments in NBA Live 14 from the 2014 NBA Playoffs. Last year’s postseason gave us quite a few memorable games and moments, and these are the ones that I personally found the most interesting, challenging, and enjoyable to re-play in NBA Live 14. Let the countdown begin!
Another quick preview of NBA 2K15 has been posted on 2K’s official Instagram account. The latest clip spotlights the cheerleaders in this year’s game, revealing that actual NBA cheerleaders were brought in to motion capture their dance routines. Needless to say, it’s obvious that the team at Visual Concepts is intent on adding authenticity down to the last detail.
These bite-size previews generally lead up to more substantial insights into gameplay and modes, so I expect that we’ll be seeing a producer blog or two in the near future. In the meantime, you can check out the clip below, or here over on 2K’s Instagram account if it’s not showing up for you.

Once again, covering the latest NBA Live 15 and NBA 2K15 news has pushed back a file additions bulletin for NBA 2K14 PC. Better late than never, I suppose, so here are the latest releases from our talented community, including faces, courts, jerseys, and more.
We have 46 new files in total today, which you can check out at the links below. As I mentioned in Episode #92 of the NLSC Podcast, with this latest batch of additions, the NBA 2K14 section is now the largest in our Downloads database. A huge thanks to everyone who continues to upload and add their work!
EA Sports continues to release screenshots of all the NBA arenas in NBA Live 15, as the Atlanta Hawks’ Philips Arena is the latest home court to be spotlighted. You can check out the full-size image below, as well as in our NBA Live 15 Screenshots gallery.
At this point, it looks as though all 30 NBA courts may be spotlighted before NBA Live 15 comes out. As we’re coming up on 40 days until the game is released, I would expect that we’ll be seeing a few more player screenshots, as well as a gameplay trailer and maybe some gameplay footage, in the not too distant future. I’m guessing that a couple of producer blogs talking about various elements of gameplay and the depth modes are also on the way.
In the meantime, you can check out a couple of screenshots of Damian Lillard that were released in the wake of him being revealed as the cover player (along with a brief in-game clip), a behind the scenes look at the cover shoot, and of course, tune in to our in-depth interview with NBA Live 15 Executive Producer Sean O’Brien!

Now that the system requirements for NBA 2K15 PC have been revealed, a lot of gamers are speculating whether or not their rig will be able to handle the game, or at least what kind of performance they can expect. While we won’t know for sure until NBA 2K15 is in our hands and on our hard drives, the game has now been added to Can You RUN It. If you’re concerned that your PC won’t be able to run the game, the test on Can You RUN It should give you a rough idea.
We also have a new preview of NBA 2K15 today, as 2K Sports posted a quick in-game clip of a few NBA mascots showing off their dance moves. You can check it out below, or here over on their Instagram account.

EA Sports has released a couple of new screenshots of Damian Lillard in NBA Live 15, in the wake of announcing him as this year’s cover player. You can check out both of the screens below, as well as in our NBA Live 15 Screenshots gallery.
As mentioned in a previous bulletin, the cover reveal trailer featured a brief in-game clip of Damian Lillard in NBA Live 15. Lillard is in what appears to be an adidas-themed arena, wearing Portland Trail Blazers practice gear. This would seem to confirm that practice jerseys are returning this year, as well as giving us a glimpse of the practice arena that will be used for on-boarding and shooting around. Check out the clip below, or here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video.
Speaking of on-boarding in this year’s game, Sean confirmed in our interview that gamers will be presented with on-boarding drills and tutorials as the game is installing. What do you think of the latest screens and the in-game clip? Sound off in the comments below, and join in the discussion in the NBA Live 15 section of the NLSC Forum.
Do you think you can beat me? Each week I am going to challenge the community to do something that I have already done. It could be taking a better screenshot, getting a better play, doing something with a specific player or team, or even make a better mod. I have no plan for this series, but I am going to try and make sure that these challenges shouldn’t take more than a half hour to complete.
Big thanks to NLSCer franmansr for suggesting this week’s challenge a few weeks ago. He wanted to see how long we could keep a shutout going…well thanks to the techniques of a few I thought we could step it up a little bit. This week’s challenge is to see how long you can shut out the pre-draft uninjured ’13-’14 Miami Heat, Hall of Fame difficulty, Simulation sliders.
I used the Spurs, and only lasted 1:41 before I got Bosh’d. For a full breakdown of the rules, and a look into the future of the series, check out the video below. Remember to submit your scores in this Forum Thread, in the comments of this post, or on the YouTube video.
Wow is a great way to sum up last week’s overtime challenge. Reaperwolverine posted a 20 overtime game, good for 200 points. So much for a close race for #1 overall! Check out the full results and overall leaderboard below by hitting Read More.
The official NBA Live website has posted a behind the scenes feature on Damian Lillard’s photo shoot for the cover of NBA Live 15. It also includes photos from his motion capture session, in which he recorded facial animations, dribbling moves, and even recreated his gamewinning shot against the Houston Rockets in last year’s Playoffs.
A cover reveal video has also been posted, featuring Damian Lillard talking about his appearance on NBA Live 15’s cover, his history with the NBA Live series, and a quick in-game clip of his virtual counterpart. You can check out that feature below, or catch it here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video.
What do you think of the cover art featuring Damian Lillard? How is the game looking, from the quick glimpse that we saw? Have your say in the comments below, and join in the discussion here in the NBA Live 15 section of the Forum!
The first official trailer for NBA 2K15 has been revealed! Billed as a sequel to last year’s “OMG Trailer”, the “Yakkem Trailer” – given it’s name by Shaquille O’Neal – features a dazzling array of highlights as it spotlights cover player Kevin Durant, former cover players LeBron James and Derrick Rose, and several other NBA stars including Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala.
A virtual Shaq also appears alongside Ernie Johnson in the studio of their in-game halftime show, showing off the set as well as the work that’s gone into lip-sync. A few Forum members have pointed out some inconsistencies with the courts, while Andrew Wiggins notably appears on the Cleveland Cavaliers’ roster, indicating that the trailer has been in the can for a while and is probably based off an older build.
Check out the Yakkem Trailer below, or catch it here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video. Your thoughts? Sound off in the comments below, as well as in this thread in the NBA 2K15 section of the Forum!
Portland Trail Blazer Damian Lillard has announced via his Instagram that he will be NBA Live 15’s cover athlete. In the announcement video, he shows off a generic Xbox One game case with the game’s cover inside. In the description, he also mentions that he has been playing EA basketball games since the 16-bit days, so it is definitely nice to have an athlete on the cover of an NBA Live game that has played them since nearly the beginning. Lillard has also been involved and featured in many of the previews for both NBA Live 14 and NBA Live 15.
Big thanks to [Ricoy] for letting us know in the NLSC Forum. Feel free to join the discussion in the comments below or in our NBA Live 15 Forum.
