Update on next EA NBA sim details

A couple of days ago I posted a bulletin that included a video talking about EA Sports’ next NBA sim game, which will be coming out later this year. Further inquiries with EA have revealed that the information provided in the video is inaccurate, as no details about the upcoming game have been made available as yet except that the series formerly known as NBA Live will be making its return this year after a two year hiatus.

Concrete details about the game are still likely to start coming in the not too distant future however, at which point we’ll be sure to report them here on the NLSC. We’ll hopefully be able to conduct some interviews and Q&As as we’ve done in the past, as well as provide some preview media when it becomes available to us. The new dev team at EA Tiburon were very receptive to our Wishlist and Wishlist Supplements, which featured the most detailed feedback we’ve ever submitted, so hopefully we can have a positive impact on the game and the series can make a strong comeback this year. Stay tuned for more details as they’re confirmed and made available.

Details on next EA NBA Sim Coming Soon (Hip Hop Gamer Show)

Hip Hop Gamer Show are reporting that there will be a reveal for EA Sports’ next NBA sim very soon, possibly within a couple of weeks, and offer up a few details on the game in a video that was posted a few days ago. You can check out the video embedded below, with the segment on the game beginning around the 6:40 mark.

The video hints at an upcoming event that the next sim game may be a part of before going on to talk about what EA will be looking to accomplish with physics and animations, enhanced audio presentation via EA Trax, press conference interviews, all new graphics and the presence of taunting and player emotion. It also mentions possible NCAA integration in the next NBA game making for two games in one, which would be a huge addition to the series formerly known as NBA Live.

Be sure to check out the video and add your thoughts in the comments below or in this thread; thanks to J-Hood for the heads up! Keep it locked here at the NLSC for more coverage of the next NBA sim from EA Sports as new details are made available.

UPDATE: It appears as though the information in this video is inaccurate, as no concrete details on EA’s next NBA sim have been revealed as yet.

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Roster Update Video

With the release of the roster update for NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, I’ve put together a short video containing gameplay clips featuring players that have changed teams including Chris Paul, Richard Hamilton, Vince Carter and Lamar Odom. Watch it out below or check it out here over on the NLSC’s YouTube channel if you can’t see the embedded video.

It’s currently still unknown whether this will be the first and last roster update for the game, or whether there’ll be further updates that add this year’s rookies and any future trades that occur. As soon as any new information is made available, we’ll be sure to post it. Remember you can discuss the new roster update here in the NLSC Forum and if you haven’t yet picked up NBA Jam: On Fire Edition and are considering doing so, be sure to check out the demo and my review of the game here. You can also check out our post-release developer Q&A here.

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Roster Updates Now Available

The long-awaited roster updates for NBA Jam: On Fire Edition are now finally available! Boot up the game and go to the Online Arena to automatically begin downloading the new rosters and the required assets.

Glancing at the rosters, it doesn’t appear as though any new players have been added, so no rookies apart from Ricky Rubio. However, existing players have been moved to their new teams with Chris Paul joining the Clippers, David West now playing for the Pacers and Lamar Odom is on the Mavericks to name just a few. This has left the rosters for some teams a little thin, such as the Cleveland Cavaliers who now only have two active players. Other teams however now find themselves with much deeper rosters, with the Dallas Mavericks now boasting six active players in addition to their legends and mascot.

It remains to be seen if any further roster updates will be released to add rookies and account for any future transactions. Post your thoughts on the roster updates in the comments below or in this thread.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Special Teams

When we buy EA or 2K’s NBA game we expect to play as the 30 current NBA teams. We expect that the rosters will be updated daily thanks to the precedent set by Living Rosters and DNA updates. And we will expect to play as the Brooklyn Nets for the ’13 games. In my opinion, the special teams in an NBA game can have a drastic effect on the game’s replayability, so that is what I will look at today.
