Posted July 20th, 2009 at 7:11 am


The launch of the NBA Live 10 website also brought about a page describing some of the features in the game. Of the items listed only one is actually new. At this point it is probably safe to assume that they are holding back on describing the larger improvements or additions after the events of last year proved why holding off can sometimes be necessary. However it also could signal strong attention to gameplay enhancements rather than adding features. The strength of the 09 was its wide feature set so the need to expand on that isn’t great, and the developers have hinted at gameplay being the central focus for 10.

Although the majority of these features are ones that return from last year they are all expected to have improvements within them. It’ll especially be interesting to see what has been done to expand on the popular DNA feature. One common request was for the inclusion of defensive tendencies.
