New NBA Live 13 Info: “What You Didn’t Know” (HipHopGamer)

A new video preview of NBA Live 13 has been posted over at HipHopGamer, offering a follow-up to their E3 2012 coverage with a few more tidbits about this year’s game. The preview reiterates that the build used for the E3 demonstration was early pre-alpha, acknowledging that it lacked polish but asserting that we can expect the final product to be much better than what was shown.

It also makes a point of talking about some aspects of the game revealed during the demonstration that haven’t been getting a lot of press, such as spacing and team synergy. Check out the preview below or watch it here over on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video. Feel free to chime in with your thoughts in the comments as well as in this thread in the NBA Live 13 section of our Forum.
