Re: NBA LIVE just dropped a 2019-20 update

My prediction ......

Digital release only (not really a Live 20 but an updated Live 19.5) for a budget price like $19.99).

Pretty much same game as last year in terms of NBA vs the one mode.

Some updated animations, added rookies, some new player scans, updated jerseys/court art etc.

Again......MY PREDICTION......don’t flame me....lol

I think it is a valid prediction.

If they would only give me two more things to this game I would probably jump ship completely to it from 2k. A little bit more franchise stuff and teams that play more like real life.

Maybe I'm remembering wrong or imagined this, but didn't the EA team behind Live say they needed to be better about talking about the game before release?

But this is following the same pattern of the past two versions. No information. No news. No confirmation of release. Just letting 2K steal all of the thunder. Suddenly, they'll say something about a demo, and in a week release the game and wonder why sales are down.

I don't know what else to say about this anymore. I feel sorry for the development team because their publisher is killing them.

This situation has a real mlb2k13 feel. 2k didnít say a word about it and one day it just showed up for sale shocking everyone. It was mlb2k12 with updated rosters and very minimal changes. It was basically one last ditch money grab before they let the MLB license go. Eerily similar circumstances.

My psn runs out tomorrow and I'm not gonna renew until some of my people get back. I retire from 19 (maybe) after dominating the last two months. I ain't mad.



I'd not be upset with a small improvement but there absolutely needs to be ranked team play to add something to give incentive to people to group and play, so we can see more good teams. Its wack to have to make fake leagues or arrange matches.



Not sure what's going on, but I got time to wait n see what happens. I wanna play a really competitive, grind free game where I can make a bunch of players so...

Re: NBA LIVE just dropped a 2019-20 update

Well we have not heard anything about them renewing a the license so this could spell the end of Live. I really believe they fully intended on continuing with the series but with the astronomical licensing fee the higher ups might be deciding last second that it is just to expensive and trying to figure out what they can do with their assets. With the amount of nba live copies they have sold over the last seven years they would not even be able to break even on the fees let alone the actual cost of producing the game. Even though they have a good base game to build on it is still a serious risk whether or not the series can ever be profitable in the next decade. EA has the cash to take the loss just to maintain a presence in a huge market, but modern CEOs tend to look very short term in terms of instant gratification for stock holders as their pay scale is directly tied to it.
If they do move on from NBA, the one mode has been great the last couple years with some serious potential. They really should package that into a fleshed out Pro-Am basketball sim with a continued streetball 3 0n 3 mode. A stand a lone game with all their focus on that mode could be very good and may sell if marketed well and profitability would be much easier without the Licensing fees.

Forget the nba thatís a losing battle. Get ncaa. Express to the NCAA itís all generic players. Itís air tight legal wise. Because losing 12 to 1 ainít cutting it. Just give up on the nba
