    Last year EA Sports attempted to entice consumers to try NBA Live 18 by aggressively dropping the price post-release. Prior to that though they also hoped to generate some pre-orders by discounting the price of the game for day one down to $40 (it went up to $60 upon release). Even at the lower price it was probably asking too much to expect all but a few to commit to a game that wasn't guaranteed to be up-to-par given the history of the series over the last decade.

    NBA Live 19 wasn't able to generate much buzz out of EA Play, despite some announcements related to features for the upcoming game that had little to do with the actual NBA. The series was able to get back onto solid footing last year but even while EA was practically giving it away it didn't gain a whole lot of traction with consumers. Strengths are looking to be capitalized on with NBA Live 19 by expanding The One career mode while introducing Real Player Motion, the new animation technolo...

    The last few years has seen EA Sports attempt to attract consumers with cover athletes that would go on to win league MVP in James Harden and Russell Westbrook, but the NBA Live series is going back to its traditional roots of selecting a young player still very much on the rise as Joel Embiid will appear on the cover of NBA Live 19. Embiid would seem to be the ideal representative for the series given his social media reach, likable and scrappy personality, and his place on a team that r...

    While it was always clear that developer Saber Interactive had a long term plan for the NBA Playgrounds series it came as somewhat of a surprise to find it now as an annually released title. Arcade-style games are few and far between these days, but featuring the official league license is a big selling point that most games of this nature wouldn't have behind them. NBA Playgrounds showed a lot of promise and post-release support was strong which bodes well going forward. Now the first vi...
