For the past couple of months, there hasn’t been much in the way of news on NBA Live 13, just plenty of speculation. However, IRB Gamer are reporting that the game will indeed be coming out in October as a digital release on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, with a price tag of $19.99 or 1600 Microsoft Points.
The info apparently comes directly from an EA representative at the GameStop Expo in San Antonio. The report also quotes the EA rep as saying “(t)he tactic is to get feedback from gamers”, perhaps suggesting that the game will receive several updates before returning to a disc based release next year. It is important to note however that no official public confirmation has come from EA as yet.
