    Ill be getting live 18 over 2k if the wnba thing is true hopefully they add all the fiba teams aswell it will be good playing live again over this 2k trash. Also seen golf club 2 already got a price drop when theres not even a release date thats usually a bad sign

    i’ve been saying all along live needs to offer different modes/teams than 2k….if they add wnba and fiba teams, i would be interested.

    Wow they’re working on Live 18? I have to give EA props for not giving up, but if Live 18 is bad or gets cancelled… then that should be the final straw, time to end the series.

    live should go for a fun arcadey vibe. nba live 10 was great fun and probably put more hours into that than any other ball game.

      I agree. Everyones been crying that NBA live should be sim.

      I think it should go back to it’s sixth gen roots and make the game arcadey with a lot of highlight plays cool dunks I think that’s the only way People take a look at it. Make it live NBA live 2003 have set plays pick and roll control but make it easier to score make it a shoot out every game and let the game be just alot of fun

    Lol the WNBA? Sounds terrible.
