The Daily Dish for 10/28/14
It's release day for NBA Live 15 so naturally there is some news related to it and that's covered on today's episode of The Daily Dish. The day one patch is available and a demo has gone out on the PS4 and six hour trial on Xbox One.

Day One Patch Details for NBA Live 15
EA Sports released a patch today for NBA Live 15 to coincide with the game's release. It'sÂ likely the culmination of work done over the weeks that the game was delayed and addresses primarily visual details but also involves some minor gameplay adjustments. Included too is a roster update which is fitting and necessary as the season begins tonight.

In addition I look ahead to tomorrow when Sony will push out an update for the PlayStation 4 that includes the revolutionary "Share Play" feature among other system improvements.
NBA Live 15 Is The Game That Should Have Rebooted The Series
EA Sports isn't treating NBA Live 15 like it's a critical release for the series which desperately needs to establish itself on stable ground and show potential to achieve significant growth in the market within the next few years. In fact they've shown little urgency at all and even have basically admitted it's not a stellar product. No one would have been fooled otherwise but it stands in stark contrast to the way the company promoted previous failed efforts where they instead presented a ...
