NBA Live 16 added to the EA Access Vault

Posted May 24th, 2016 at 2:00 pm


With today’s addition of NBA Live 16 to the EA Access Vault all the EA Sports games from 2015 are now included with the subscription service. While there won’t be another NBA Live until maybe sometime next year – whether that even materializes will remain to be seen – those on Xbox One can now play Live 16 in unlimited fashion as long as a subscription is active.

This is the fifth and final EA Sports game from 2015 to reach the Vault in EA Access. It follows Madden NFL 16 which was added in February, NHL 16 in March, FIFA 16 in April, and Rory McIlroy PGA Tour from earlier this month.

EA Access is currently exclusive to Xbox One with Sony declining to offer the service on PS4. For $30 a year or $5 month-to-month, members get unlimited access to the back library of EA games on the console which in addition to all the sports titles include the likes of Battlefield Hardline, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and Titanfall. There’s also the 10 hour trials with every EA game that begin five days before release and 10% savings on all digital purchases whether it be the actual games or microtransactions within them.

          If they shooting and player animations were at least partially realistic the game wouldn’t be that bad

      Speaking of hard drives, it’s ridiculous that Microsoft and Sony released these consoles with such small hard drives, smh.

      • Iown You

        The sizes would’ve been perfectly fine if you didn’t have to install games, but the drives being used for PS4 and XBOX One are too slow to get around that.

  • MoneyMayweather

    Andrew? are you gonna give it a fair shake?

    • hungryandrew

      Dude, I already tried this game, and it’s trash, get real man smh.

    • hungryandrew

      1 thing I give to Live 16, is their arena atmosphere, and crowd noise, that’s it.

    I haven’t really played since the trial. I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of updates they’ve made and how different it is from launch day.

    Also Pasta, just two weeks ago for Battlefest, EA gave away the Premium services for Hardline and Battlefield 4 for free to all EA access members.

    Both hoop games this year are terrible

    Got it today, this is a pretty bad game actually. It feels really weird and not just because I’m used to 2K. I will keep trying it, maybe jump into some Pro-Am but I don’t see this getting much play from me. As far as hard drive space, I just got a 500 GB One, and it won’t be long before I grab a decent 2 TB external, those things are definitely worth the money (changed out my PS4 one to a 2 TB not long after I got it and it’s nice to not worry about keeping only 10 games on the drive).

  • So I found this article:

    The 2TB version of the one they recommend highest is:

    But it looks like you’d need an adaptor for that since it’s 3.5 instead of 2.5 – I haven’t gone through the process myself so I don’t know all the details on completing it.
