    The NBA Draft is tonight signalling a quick turn from the Finals to the unofficial start of the next season. Even of more impact is free agency which will open on July 1 though players can't officially sign until July 10. With that in mind I put together one more look back on the 2014-15 season in NBA 2K15. What players had their ratings rise the most, and who took the most significant hits? Flip through the full list of players with details on Sporting News. The biggest winners inc...

    Over the course of E3 week, in addition to trailers and feature news, EA Sports rolled out the pre-order incentives and special editions for FIFA 16, NHL 16, and NBA Live 16. Similar to Madden NFL 16, which had it's info go out earlier, the games outside of Live are essentially being offered in different tiers now. That, of course, is related to the amount of up-front Ultimate Team content desired by consumers.  (more…)...

    Yesterday the first breakdown of Madden NFL 16 footage was posted, taking a closer look at that game out of E3. Today attention turns to NBA Live 16 which EA Sports hopes will see a resurgence this year. The company is making some big claims that will draw additional scrutiny should they fail to live up to them but at this point they really have nothing to lose. It's important to be somewhat cautious in analyzing basketball games played by people, more so than other sports games, becau...

    EA Sports rolled out new trailers for their upcoming games at E3.

    Based on the E3 presser it's clear that, if NBA Live is going down, they're going to do so swinging.

Ultimately though no one is going to put much stock into what they say, but rather what is shown. There wasn't much in the way of footage to come out of E3 but there are a few videos at...
