    Already having been (temporarily) found at a massive discount, NBA Live 19 can now also offer a series of improvements to the game that have some real substance behind them. While they won't help Live 19 become more of an NBA game, the update does fill in some of the gaps otherwise with the addition of player editing for Franchise Mode, the ability to practice on your created court with your created player, new signature animations for a number of players, and considerable tuning having been...

    Last year NBA Live 18 was sold for $40 pre-release, jumped back up to the contractually obligated $60 on release day, and then three weeks later was dropped down to $30 by various retailers. With NBA Live 19 there was a similar pre-order offer and now, again three weeks after release, the opportunity to get the game on sale but for even cheaper than that. Currently a digital copy on PlayStation 4 has seen the price has dropped to $30, but for PlayStation Plus subscribers an additional 20%...

    The contraction of the sports video game genre within the last 10+ years has reduced the sports with competition down to only a few, and one of those has barely just hung on and isn't at all competitive. With that in mind, in soccer and basketball there are multiple options to consider spending money on, but consumers may already have pre-conceived notions of which they should choose while others may be up into the air as to a decision. Battling on the pitch is FIFA 19 and Pro Evolution S...

    For years now NBA 2K has offered the ability to customize courts (and surrounding elements) for expansion teams and use in its online Pro-Am Mode. NBA Live 19 will introduce its own court customization, and though impressive will find the creations restricted to usage in private online games and practices in The One mode. With just over three weeks to go until release, and 11 days until the demo, EA Sports continues revealing more features for NBA Live 19's Career Mode which was unquestio...

    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. Now though, coming off...

    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...
