Roster Updates for NBA Live 2005 through NBA Live 08 Coming This Week

I’m pleased to announce that at long last, I anticipate releasing new roster updates for NBA Live 2005 through NBA Live 08 by the end of the week. At this point, all of the necessary players have been created, player art is in place, the rosters for all 30 NBA teams and the East and West All-Stars are up to date and years pro have been updated to include the 2010/2011 season.

Over the next couple of days, I will be finishing up editing ratings for players who were in last year’s rosters, ensuring all team art is in place and up to date, updating things like salaries, team records and accessories, adding this year’s Rookie Challenge rosters and putting on other finishing touches. Once the NBA Live 08 update is complete, I’ll be converting it for use with NBA Live 07, NBA Live 06 and NBA Live 2005. As soon as that’s done, I’ll be uploading the new rosters and announcing the release here on the NLSC.

A huge thanks to everyone for their continued patience and support. I am getting the rosters out much later than I would’ve liked, due to a combination of the lockout dampening my enthusiasm, burnout on making the updates and other responsibilities continually getting in the way, however the release is finally in sight. At this point I’m not sure about the future of the updates beyond this season, especially if NBA Live 13 does come out on PC, but I will evaluate the situation around the time of the 2012 Draft as I’d like to do what I can to keep the old games alive for those who still play them. In the meantime, check back soon for the new rosters!

ThaLiveKing’s NBA Live Advisory Council Report

Steve (aka ThaLiveKing) has posted a detailed report on his experience at the NBA Live Advisory Council event here in the NLSC Forum. As with the other reports that have been posted so far, not much can be said about the game itself at this point due to a Non Disclosure Agreement, however Steve echoes the sentiments of his fellow Council members as far as having positive impressions of NBA Live 13, the Dev Team at EA Tiburon and the productivity of the event.

Be sure to check it out and show Steve some appreciation for a comprehensive and well-written report. Also, don’t forget to check out Corey Andress’ report here, as well as Mario Drake’s Minati Journal over on the official NBA Live forums.

NBA Live Advisory Council Reports

The first reports from the NBA Live Advisory Council event are starting to come out. You can check out Mario Drake’s Minati Journal over on the official NBA Live forums for his running diary of the event, as well as Corey Andress’ first diary entry here over on his new site,

While the guys are under Non Disclosure Agreements and can’t say too much about NBA Live 13 itself at this time, both have expressed confidence in the new Dev Team at EA Tiburon and a positive outlook towards the finished product based on what they saw and their hands-on time with the game. Be sure to check out both reports and then join in the discussion of NBA Live 13 here in the NLSC Forum!

Second NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Roster Update Now Available

As I previously speculated here, a new roster update for NBA Jam: On Fire Edition was indeed in the works and is now available to download. To get the update, simply go to the Online Arena and the new roster will be downloaded automatically, along with all the necessary assets.

In addition to updating the rosters accurate as of the trade deadline, the second roster update also adds the following players: Kyrie Irving, Jimmer Fredette, Jeremy Lin, Derrick Williams, Tristan Thompson, Brandon Knight, Kemba Walker, MarShon Brooks, Nene, DeAndre Jordan, Darren Collison, Aaron Afflalo, Roy Hibbert and Kyle Lowry. It seems that the new players are not called by their names, suggesting that no audio updates are included, but their addition to the game certainly balances out the rosters after the first update left a couple of teams’ lineups very thin.

New NBA 2K12 Official Roster Update (April 13th) Now Available

A new official roster update for NBA 2K12 has gone live, containing rosters accurate through April 13th, 2012.

Once it is downloaded, the new roster can be loaded by using the Reset Roster function under the Options Menu.

PC users who would prefer to update their game manually may download this pack, which has been updated with a copy of the latest roster and all the online data files. As per the NBA 2K Insider, Kevin Seraphin, Goran Dragic, Brandan Wright and Greivis Vasquez are among the players receiving boosts to their ratings this week while Jamal Crawford’s ratings have been decreased. Check out a video overview of the latest rosters here courtesy of Operation Sports and be sure to follow the NBA 2K Insider on Twitter to provide feedback for future roster updates.

NBA Live Advisory Council Visit Underway

The members of the first NBA Live Advisory Council are currently visiting EA’s Tiburon studio, meeting with the producers and getting some hands on time with NBA Live 13. It’s unlikely that they will be able to say too much about the game at this time but you can follow them on Twitter to send in any questions you may have and read what they are allowed to pass along. Council member and EA Game Changer Shawn Drotar has posted a handy list of the Council’s Twitter handles, which you can find here.

EA Sports are also inviting more fan feedback via this post on the official NBA Live Facebook page. And of course, we invite you to discuss your hopes and ideas for NBA Live 13 here in the NLSC Forum; as you can see from this post, the developers are keeping tabs on our Forum, so let your voice be heard!
