  • NBA Live 08 OTP night one
    Posted January 25th, 2008 at 9:32 am 56 Comments
    This evening brings the first PP NBA Live 08 OTP night (360) and thanks to the voting we have the matchups for the two scheduled games. The time to be there is 5pt/8et with the first game starting up promptly (even if not completely full). Head to the user created room pastapadre and the password will be OTP. From there I will create the game and send invites. I believe I'll have to invite from my friends list so once in the room and situated send me a friend request if you aren't already...
  • First NBA Live 08 OTP nights
    Posted January 22nd, 2008 at 4:51 am 41 Comments
    The voting has been going now for a few days and it has come in strongly towards Friday and Saturday. So this week lets shoot for opening up a lobby room on both nights and trying to get a couple good games of Online Team Play in on the 360. 360 permitting (status is questionable right now) I'll be able to hop on both evenings at 5pt/8et and play through at least one if not two games. I'd likely record at least one to post up on the site soon after completion. Spots won't be held they'll ...
  • NBA Live 08 OTP impressions
    Posted January 20th, 2008 at 4:04 pm 34 Comments
    After playing through several games of Online Team Play in NBA Live 08 I've been able to form some initial thoughts on the mode. This is really a unique way to play the game and seems to be the natural evolution of online play. It had been a big success in NHL 08 and FIFA 08 and that is definitely the case with Live as well. Controlling a single player in a basketball game is probably the most natural and engaging of all the sports. Any configuration of up to five on five is allowed. It i...
  • NBA Live 08 OTP Night
    Posted January 19th, 2008 at 11:21 am 21 Comments
    With the recent release of Online Team Play for NBA Live 08 on the 360 it seemed natural to coordinate a night where everyone can hop on and find some quality OTP action. I'm going to be posting up my impressions of the mode by Monday but after having completed a couple games I can say it's an extremely fun and a unique experience. There may be some prizes given away randomly however this is not so much a competition as it is a get together just for some fun games. Hopefully we'll be able...

    Posted January 12th, 2008 at 12:27 pm 48 Comments
    The Online Team Play update for the Xbox 360 version of NBA Live 08 was released earlier today. After a premature press release in mid-November and the PS3 version receiving the patch a few weeks ago, the 360 crowd has finally received the ability to play with up to 10 different consoles connected into a single game. It certainly appears that it will have been worth the wait. Initial reports from the PS3 side have been very positive. There has also been overwhelming enthusiasm towards the...

  • NBA Live 08 OTP competition to look forward to
    Posted October 20th, 2007 at 5:48 pm 18 Comments
    I wanted to give some advance notice of a competition that will be held here at the site. Once the Online Team Play is released for NBA Live 08 there will be an event utilizing it on the Xbox 360. That should be out by the end of November, which would mean this will probably be held in early December. While it is publicized as allowing for a full five on five, it will actually open up the ability to play any combination up to it. In this case we'll be going two on two. Obviously this far ...
