    It may be coming one year too late to take full advantage of an opening presented by the competition, which will now be offering up a similar mode by the very same name late next month, but the announcement of Live Pro-Am for NBA Live 16 is a significant one. The Pro-Am encompasses two different modes: Live Run and Summer Circuit. EA Sports had been hinting at Live Run making a comeback since June. It returns six years after it was a popular mode of play in NBA Live 10. Unlike adidas Live...

    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. What kind of traction have they had on Youtube and is there anything to be gleaned from view numbers? What probably stands out the most is how Madden really isn't drawing at a rate that would be representative of its sales numbers - something that seems to be a trend over recent years.  (more…)...

    Based on the E3 presser it's clear that, if NBA Live is going down, they're going to do so swinging. Not only did EA Sports take shots at their 2K rival but the features announced - a face scanning app and a yet to be revealed multiplayer online mode - are an attempt to attack the competition's weaknesses. 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...

    The first day of E3 is in the books and it was relatively uneventful, though quite informative, in regards to the upcoming crop of sports games. This year at E3 expectations were tempered as far as the yearly league-licensed games go and there were few deviations from what was anticipated. Madden NFL 16 got a new mode announced, NBA Live 16 made some big promises, and FIFA 16 had one of the longest presentations in recent memory. Meanwhile the oft-rumored, and perpetually teased, Joe Mon...
