  • The Fate of NBA Live as a Franchise Will Be Determined Soon
    Posted September 17th, 2012 at 9:30 am 69 Comments
    The idea of a delay to NBA Live 13 would have been just about the worst-case scenario for EA Sports when planning for the reboot was being done. The company knew they would not be able to sell the game in its first year back with such an entrenched competitor on the market so the goal instead was to create some awareness and reestablish at least a modicum of credibility. The building process for the series - which one could point to the FIFA and NHL as those that made comebacks despite the o...
  • NBA Live 13 Release Pushed Back But Not Cancelled Yet
    Posted September 13th, 2012 at 1:00 pm 124 Comments
    In what will come as no surprise to those following NBA Live 13 developments over the summer EA Sports today confirmed with Kotaku that the game has for all intents and purposes been delayed indefinitely. It will not be releasing on the NBA mandated first Tuesday of October, as competitor NBA 2K13 will, and instead will move ahead with no official release date on the slate for the time being. Of course that is the same path that NBA Elite 11 took before inevitably being canned officially ...
  • EA Sports Appears To Be Throwing In The Towel With NBA Live 13
    Posted August 31st, 2012 at 4:00 pm 94 Comments
    Though the news of NBA Live 13's impending release as a discount digital title doesn't come as a surprise given the events of recent months it does reaffirm general pessimistic assessments towards the product and explain the disappearance of promotion by EA Sports. The tactic being employed is not one of confidence nor is it an attempt to gain marketshare on a competitor. It's admission of defeat and could signal the end of basketball from EA. (more…)...
  • NBA Live 13 Apparently May Still Be On Track To Release And Do So At Just $20
    Posted August 30th, 2012 at 4:15 pm 63 Comments
    According to IRB Gamer, who is reporting out of the Gamestop Expo, NBA Live 13 will be a digital release this October. That it would be a downloadable title doesn't come as a surprise - the recent leaked footage supported that and all other signs before it have pointed that direction. It will probably be a big mistake to re-launch the series in such a manner, but coming in at a $20 price point could lead some to give it more consideration. That is what a a rep apparently told the site to exp...
  • NBA Live 13 Appears To Be Digital Release – Should It End Up Releasing At All
    Posted August 22nd, 2012 at 12:15 pm 84 Comments
    The leaked gameplay footage of NBA Live 13 has given even more credence to the idea that it could end up being a digital download rather than retail release. Everything continues to point towards that as the strategy EA Sports is going with - or was planning to anyway - even if it would be yet another major mistake on their part.  (more…)...
  • First Footage of NBA Live 13

    There are just six weeks until NBA Live 13 should be releasing yet EA Sports remains quiet about their intentions for the game. The biggest question of course is whether it'll release at all or not - indications from EA certainly haven't been encouraging even in that basic regard and retailers remain in the dark. Is could also be planned as a digital release though the company has refused comment on all matters. Now though an extended gameplay video has leaked - the first opportunity to a...
  • NBA Live 13 Going Solely Digital Would Be Yet Another Big Misstep
    Posted August 6th, 2012 at 4:15 pm 73 Comments
    The complete uncertainty surrounding NBA Live 13 continues with the latest that the product could end up being a digital release. If that is the tactic being put into play by EA Sports it's one they'll likely regret. There is the necessity to differentiate from the entrenched competition but limiting the market and reducing value is not the way to do it.  (more…)...
  • NBA Live 13 Could Be a Digital Release
    Posted August 2nd, 2012 at 9:30 am 87 Comments
    There has been a lot of speculation around NBA Live 13 given the actions of EA Sports. The game is being hidden right now and they are actively cultivating a perception that something is severely wrong with the title. That the discussion amongst consumers about Live 13 is trending towards whether it will even release or not - and EA doesn't seem to mind that stories have to be written saying they haven't actually cancelled it yet - says a lot about their confidence towards the product should...

  • Curious Circumstances Surround Current Retailer Listings for NBA Live 13
    Posted July 6th, 2012 at 10:15 am 55 Comments
    EA Sports was unable to generate excitement for NBA Live 13 at E3 - in fact they left the event with perception of the game taking a large hit from its already fairly low level of regard from the media. Since then the company has gone largely quiet regarding Live - with the exception of tweeting out first round draft pick overall ratings - which projects the impression that they don't have what is needed to generate positive momentum or may not be confident in the product at this point in ti...
