NBA Live 19 Patch 1.17 Now Available

On the heels of Patch 1.16, another update has come through for NBA Live 19. As with all other title updates, Patch 1.17 should download automatically as long as your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One has an active Internet connection. If you encounter any difficulties, try restarting your console.

No patch notes have been released as yet, and checking the update history through the PS4 dashboard only yields the generic message about “minor bug fixes”. For the moment, we can assume it’s likely that Patch 1.17 is a hotfix for issues caused by the previous update. There was apparently an issue with the announcer audio not being played during intros when the Earned jerseys were selected, which does appear to have been resolved.

If any further information is provided, I’ll be sure to update this post, as well as the patch history for NBA Live 19 in our Wiki. For now, feel free to share any observations in the comments below, as well as in this topic in the Forum.

Christmas Playground in NBA 2K Playgrounds 2

Aside from offering up some impressions on the NLSC Podcast, we haven’t really been covering NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 since its release.

  • New Christmas Playground
  • 10 new Christmas themed outfits
  • 35 Players unlocked
  • 29 new Vanity items
  • Fixes for minor issues and Stability improvements

Dennis Rodman and Karl Malone are among the new players unlocked in the new update. As is generally the case, the patch will come through automatically as long as you have an active Internet connection. If you encounter any difficulties, try restarting or checking for the update manually.

Feel free to leave any impressions or thoughts about NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 in the comments section below. If you’d like to take the discussion to the NLSC Forum, we have a topic for the game here in our Other Basketball Games board.

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #268 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! This week, Kenny and I have new content and title updates for NBA Live 19 and NBA 2K19 to discuss, some NBA news to catch up on, and as always, some stories about what we’ve been doing on the virtual hardwood.

On this week’s show…

  • The December 4th content update for NBA Live 19 features some worthwhile fixes and additions. However, we’re still left wanting a little more out of the game.
  • Patch 1.07 for NBA 2K19 likewise provides a few welcome fixes and new content. It also includes a gameplay adjustment that should cut down on some online cheese.
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming saw some fantastic performances, a determined grind for more VC, and a few less-than-stellar random online teammates (except for one).
  • We wrap up Episode #268 of the NLSC Podcast with the usual NBA discussion. This week’s topics include recent trades and signings, parity in the West, and the continuation of an unofficial Melo Watch segment.

NBA 2K19 Patch 1.07 Released; Content, Fixes, & Adjustments

LeBron James dunks in NBA 2K19

Patch 1.07 has come through for NBA 2K19. It’s currently available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game, with the PC and Switch patches coming soon. As always, the patch should download automatically as long as your console is connected to the Internet. If it doesn’t, try restarting, or checking for it manually.

The patch adds the latest uniform and shoe updates to MyCAREER, MyLEAGUE, and MyGM saves. According to reports over at Operation Sports, it unfortunately doesn’t update existing MyLEAGUE Online games. A couple of gameplay tweaks have also been made, including an adjustment to illegal screens. New player likenesses and action shots have been added, a few bugs have been fixed, and there’s some new functionality in MyTEAM and 2K Pro-Am. Unfortunately, the latter still doesn’t support less than five users per side, as in past games.

Please see below for the full patch notes. You can also find them here in our Wiki. Feel free to share your thoughts on the latest patch in the comments section below, as well as in this topic in our NBA 2K19 Forum.

Episode #267 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Unfortunately illness and jetlag got in the way of us recording an episode last week, but Kenny and I are back this week to catch up on the latest news and talk about what we’ve been doing on the virtual hardwood.

On this week’s show…

  • Patch 1.15 has come through for NBA Live 19. We discuss the latest changes, recap some of the other additions and fixes in recent patches, and give our thoughts on where the game is at after a couple of months.
  • EA Sports recently announced that NBA Live Mobile is the most downloaded basketball game this year. We reflect on how it’s helped the brand, even if it’s not something we’re into ourselves.
  • NBA 2K19 has also received another update recently, namely Patch 1.06. Unfortunately we still haven’t seen the functionality we want to see patched back in for 2K Pro-Am, but there have been some other noteworthy and welcome changes.
  • The in-universe value of Virtual Currency in NBA 2K19’s Neighborhood is truly astonishing this year. We note some of the oddities and issues with the exchange rate.
  • Could a new college football game be paving the way for other college sports titles, including basketball? Can a sports game without licensing succeed in 2018?
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming included setting records in MyCAREER, playing with WNBA players and taking control of courts in NBA Live 19, and trying to unlock a team that’s close to our hearts in Basketball Classics.
  • We wrap up Episode #267 of the NLSC Podcast with this week’s NBA talk. Topics include surprising results in the East and West, standout rookies, and more thoughts on Carmelo Anthony.

  • Patch 1.14 has come through for NBA Live 19. It’s a significant update, but does it address all of our most pressing concerns regarding gameplay and content?

NLSC Podcast – Episode #265

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #265 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we discuss the official updates for NBA Live 19, online play in NBA 2K19, and recent NBA news.

On this week’s show…

  • EA Sports has been pushing through patches for NBA Live 19 on a weekly basis, but the community is growing a little frustrated with the lack of adjustments to gameplay and game modes. Could the updates for NBA Live 19 stand to be more substantial?
  • The NLSC crew had more fun playing The Playground than the Jordan Rec Center in NBA 2K19 this week. We were glad to have some fun hooping together online, but we’re still disappointed in the new approach to NBA 2K’s Pro-Am modes.
  • Speaking of online play, could NBA Live and NBA 2K be doing more to reward good teamwork and punish bad sportsmanship?
  • We wrap up Episode #265 of the NLSC Podcast with this week’s NBA discussion. Topics include Kyrie Irving’s post-game outburst, a trade for Jimmy Butler, and Carmelo Anthony’s future.

Episode #264 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! After a long hiatus, Arcane and I are back to our weekly discussions about basketball video games, and a little bit of real basketball as well. Since it’s been several weeks and patches since the last episode, we have a few things to catch up on!

On this week’s show…

  • We tip off the episode with some housekeeping matters, including an explanation for our unplanned hiatus.
  • NBA Live 19 has received some significant updates since launch, and the game is better for it. We discuss the various additions and changes, what we’d still like to see, and the modes we’ve been playing.
  • Updates have also been pushed through for NBA 2K19, though a couple of much-desired changes have yet to be made. Apart from that though, we do have some positive impressions and stories to share.
  • NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 launched during our hiatus. Has the partnership between 2K Sports and Saber Interactive yielded a better product than last year’s release?
  • Turning our attention to modding, we talk about the enjoyment and satisfaction of updating an old favourite. This time, it’s a work-in-progress roster update for NBA 2K11.
  • Episode #264 of the NLSC Podcast wraps up with a quick discussion of the real NBA, including a career night for Derrick Rose, and a contentious situation with Jimmy Butler.
