Thoughts on the return of NBA Live

By now, you’ve likely heard that EA Sports’ next NBA sim will mark the return of the NBA Live brand, completely abandoning the NBA Elite moniker following the cancellation of NBA Elite 11. We’re set to receive some more info on the game next Monday and so far it seems that a fair amount of people are excited to hear that EA will be switching back to the old name.

I’m certainly count myself among them and as such, I’d like to share a few thoughts on the announcement as we all wait to hear what’s in store for NBA Live 13, which appears to be carrying the tag line “Future of Basketball”. Read on for my thoughts and feel free to post yours in the comments section below.

EA Blog: NBA Live is Back!

Following on from yesterday’s announcement about the return of NBA Live, a new blog has been posted over on EA’s official website. It doesn’t go into a lot of detail but mentions the new studio (EA Tiburon) and new development team that is working on the game. It also mentions the “Future of Basketball” tagline and hints that the team will be seeking fan feedback in the coming weeks.

We have a new studio and a new development team, and this fall we’ll launch an all-new experience that captures the future of basketball with NBA LIVE 13. 

We’re looking forward to players giving us their feedback on the game, and next month we’ll welcome in fans from around the country to join in on the process of creating NBA LIVE 13 as well – more on that on Monday, so please make sure you follow our Facebook page and Twitter handle to get the latest information.

Thanks to J-Hood for the heads up in the NLSC Forum. Join in the discussion of the newly announced NBA Live 13 here.

New Poll: Playing basketball video games online and offline

We now have a new poll up which asks: “Do you mostly play basketball video games online or offline?” Cast your vote now and feel free to post your thoughts in the comments below!

Our previous poll asked “Do you consider yourself a sim or arcade player when it comes to basketball video games?” It appears as though most folks around these parts seek realism from their virtual basketball experience, with 67% of voters identifying themselves as sim players compared to only 8% who consider themselves arcade players. A further 25% saw themselves as being somewhere in between.

Stick Skills have posted an article which examines the top five things that the next NBA sim title from EA Sports needs to have, from a deep Dynasty Mode to player individuality and a quality gameplay experience.
