  • Dynamic Updates for NCAA Basketball 10

    As noted when the official fact sheet from EA Sports for NCAA Basketball 10 was released it lacked mention of the "Dynamic Updates" that had been included on the features list. With less than a week until release they have finally come out and discussed this feature. You can check out the full blog here. With these updates you will also get the latest top 25 and RPI for all teams featured in the game. These updates are showcased in-game on all relevant broadcast overlays as well as in the D...

    Yesterday brought the release of the NCAA Basketball 10 demo (at least for those with a 360) and I posted up my initial impressions of the after spending some time with it. You can check out that article here. In addition to the impressions I wanted to get a few HD videos of the demo up. These are played on All-Conference difficulty controlling Duke and using the default broadcast camera. Continue on to watch the videos and leave your thoughts in the comments. (more…)...
  • NCAA Basketball 10 Demo Impressions

    Generally it takes a few times through to get a good feel for a sports game from a demo. However because of the similarities to NBA Live 10 the demo for NCAA Basketball 10 comes across as ultra accessible and familiar. Naturally much of what my impressions entail will be comparisons and contrasts between the two EA basketball games. Featured in the demo is a five minute half with North Carolina @ Duke with the CBS presentation package. The demo is structured well enough to get a good feel...
  • EA Modifies NCAA Basketball 10 Demo Availability
    Posted November 5th, 2009 at 12:15 pm 44 Comments
    EA Sports has sent out a press release announcing the availability of the NCAA Basketball 10 demo. It is now available for the 360. While it has not shown up in the "New Arrivals" section it can be found by going to "All Game Demos" and searching by the letter 'N'. What is most stunning out of the press release is a change to when the PS3 will be receiving the demo. The NCAA Basketball 10 website has been clearly advertising the release of the demo as November 6th for several weeks. Howev...
  • NCAA Basketball 10 Demo Details
    Posted November 5th, 2009 at 10:26 am 30 Comments
    With the demo for NCAA Basketball 10 slated to release tomorrow EA Sports has revealed some details on what to expect out of it. The demo will be a single five minute half and will feature North Carolina @ Duke. The CBS presentation package will be featured. While five minutes still isn't an ideal length for a demo at least they didn't break it into multiple even shorter segments. With this setup there should be enough consecutive gametime to get into a flow and begin to evaluate it. The ...

    EA Sports has released the full fact sheet for NCAA Basketball 10. The fact sheet contains the information provided to retailers and reviewers. While there is nothing new compared to the features list it does go into a little more detail for each area. The most disappointing thing about the fact sheet is the complete absence of the "dynamic updates" which is the only thing that hasn't been detailed to this point. According to the website the demo for the game will be out on Friday but as ...

IGN also has a quick Q&A regarding the home court advantage that will be included in the game which you can check out in its entirety here. IGN: If I select a school that's not on the top ten toughest places to play list for my dynasty, can I build them into such a powerhouse that they'll eventually make it...
  • NCAA Basketball 10 Features List
    Posted October 28th, 2009 at 7:15 am 88 Comments
    The NCAA Basketball 10 features list is now out thanks to Gamestop. With only three weeks until the game is released and a little over a week until the demo there has been reason to wonder why no other features or improvements have been discussed. Now having the list it becomes seems that there is just little else to go on except for one new addition that will probably be talked more about in the coming weeks. NCAA Basketball 10 appears to best described as college-hybrid of NBA Live 10 g...
