    NBA Live 16Ā isĀ out now to download as a timed trial with EA Access on Xbox One. Subscribers to the service will get 10 hours of playtime after which it will expire. The timer is ticking down whenever the game is loaded regardless of whether it is being played, menus are being navigated through, or if there is any activity taking place at all. So make sure to exit out and close the application from the Xbox One home screen when not in use. The 10 hours are there to play whether or not it...

    The NBA Live franchise has somehow made it through arguably the worst five year stretch of any sports game of our time. A cancellation, a year off, another cancellation, a terrible release they later apologized for, and a decent effort that saw sales fall because of the previous year. EA Sports can't seem to catch a break - but often it's of their own doing. That's the case again after awful player faces for some of the professionals in the game went viral yesterday. Many of the faces ...

    Last year with NBA Live 15, EA Sports was able to get the series back to a level of respectability. It still lagged far behind the competition in just about every aspect however and question remained on its viability in today's marketplace. For NBA Live 16 the company is going all-in with two new online modes, both of which fall under Live Pro-Am, and continued improvement to gameplay. Will that be enough when the rest of the game is essentially unchanged?Ā  (more…)...

    The demo for NBA Live 16 is now available to download on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It's a unique oneĀ in that it includes an online component and the ability to create a character that will carry over to the full game should it be purchased. FeaturedĀ are six teams to use in standard exhibition games (Bulls, Cavaliers, Clippers, Thunder, Warriors, Wizards) along with tutorial drills, shootaround, and scrimmage. But it's the Live Pro-Am that takes center stage. There are two online mo...

    Following footage recorded off-screen at E3, NBA Live 16 went somewhat into hiding and since then has avoided the release of any gameplay footage, knowing that a great deal would ride on the demo anyway. However EA Sports gave out copies of the game at a party on Saturday night - many of which have since ended up on Ebay - and that means footage of the game would inevitably get out no matter whatever efforts EA would take to prevent that from happening. Already there has been a live strea...

    Both NBA Live 16Ā and NBA 2K16 are rolling out a significant online-based mode that shares the same name. The importance each one holdsĀ is wildly different however, with Live Pro-Am being the main feature of that game, while 2K's Pro-Am is just one of severalĀ modes that offerĀ considerableĀ depth. Based on the results of the poll on the two, Live has done well with its announcement as it has attracted some interest. 29% of respondents found themselves more intrigued by Live's Pro-Am com...

    EA Sports recently announcedĀ that NBA Live 16 will be getting a demo on Xbox One and Playstation 4 on Tuesday, September 15.

Alongside all the features of LIVE Pro-Am, you can also check out exhibition style play in Tip Off with six NBA teams (Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Chicago Bulls, Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Clippers), and the Learn LIVE tutorial...

    NBA 2K16 and NBA Live 16 don't share a lot in common in terms of the modes they'll be offering up, but they do have one that is not just similar in nature but share the same name: Pro-Am. The 2K Pro-AmĀ takes the place of last year's Jordan Rec Center, and continues with 5-on-5 (every player can be controlled by a different user or some spots taken by CPU) and NBA rules. Leaderboards and matchmaking have been added - no more time wasted waiting in "Got Next" spots! However the biggest new...
