NBA Jam: On Fire Edition is only backwards compatible sports game on Xbox One
Today Microsoft revealed the initial list of games receiving backwards compatibility on Xbox One when the functionality launches for the system on Thursday. As expected the sports gaming genre has little representation with only one game in the mix.
NBA Jam: On Fire Edition will be available with the first batch of games. Originally released November 2011, OFEÂ was a $15 downloadable-only title. It was fairly well received, with 85/81 on Metacritic, but also followed only a year after the...

First in-season roster update for NBA 2K16
2K Sports today released the first roster update for NBA 2K16 that takes into account performance from regular season games. The Warriors didn't receive any upgrades despite a record-setting start, nor did the Rockets receive any downgrades after getting blown out in their first three games before bouncingÂ back last night. Considering the season is so young it's not surprising that only a handful of players were moved up or down.
Kobe Bryant is the player with the highest profile to be a...

The future of NBA Live appears bleak
The news on NBA Live 16's abysmal sales has brought into greater focus the precarious position the series finds itself in now. With a brand that seems irreparably damaged, at some point EA Sports will be forced into the decision of shutting it down for good, or spinning it into something dramatically different than it is now.
With that in mind, Rich Grisham and I discuss the current situation for NBA Live, how it ended up in this place, considerations that the company has been and will be...
