During the EA Games presentation at E3 today, Cleveland Cavaliers star point guard Kyrie Irving came out on to the stage to help unveil the return of NBA Live 14. Of course, EA Sports had to be dramatic, so they used a slam poet to hype up the crowd and get the buzz going. Irving joined executive producer Sean O’Brien to help introduce the game and the new “Bounce Tech” system which makes ball handling the top priority.

For the first time in the series’ history, the ball will separate from the players hands on every bounce which will allow another level of strategy and creativity.

NBA Live 14 looks like it will be an exciting game that can once again rival the NBA 2k franchise.

It will be tough for EA Sports to get back in the basketball video game market because of the success that NBA 2K has had, but NBA Live 14 certainly has the new features that gamers have been asking for.

Trailer:

Trailer doesn't reveal much but wonder what this new "BounceTech" will be like. Obviously it's gonna be tough to get back anywhere to 2k's marketability, but glad they're getting competition.

Game looks like ***. All the players look unrealistic, looking that skinny.

I'm hard pressed to find a worse franchise than NBA Live. What an awful awful series of games.

EA stole the show though. Had some fantastic games, headlined by BF4 for me.

2k will be way better for a few years before live can actually challenge. but at least there are options now.

ea will have way better online though
if anyone has played nhl 13 their EASHL online league is worlds ahead of what 2k can put out
if ea can replicate it on live that **** will be un real
think 2k11 crew with no hacked players and 99s, it actually works, and there is playoffs every month

This.

Franchise modes are the only thing saving the game.

Since EA is getting back to NBA Live, hopefully they will get back to baseball too for Xbox. The 2K series is ****ing terrible for baseball, soooo many bugs.

The players look so unrealistic, can't believe a company that big hasn't figured it out yet.

That's a very reasonable price. Anyone who complains doesn't understand what goes into pricing consoles.

I hope they gear this towards arcade instead of sim. 2K feels more robotic and bloated every year, EA needs to make basketball fun again

Fun > mechanics > graphics > stupid LeBron and Jay Z hype

There's not much left that isn't known as far as specifications. Perhaps the video card capabilities but I suspect it's some midrange Radeon ~7600-7700 series on the CPU die. Sort of an integrated graphics except using DDR5 in place of standard DDR3 like the desktop equivalent AMD Trinity based CPUs use.

Shame. Live used to be great back in the day.

Then 2K came.

Both consoles have great specs.

500 without subscription to live and tax....600 plus total for the system and live.... Way way way to much

Game looks like ***. All the players look unrealistic, looking that skinny.

The only 2 guys you really see in the trailer are Deandre and Kyrie and neither of them looks unrealistically skinny. DJ's arms aren't too big in actuality and nothing seemed wrong with Kyrie.

The players look so unrealistic, can't believe a company that big hasn't figured it out yet.

I can live with players looking less realistic as long as the game feels and moves more realisticly.

Fast Break Pro Basketball is the best Basketball Game but doesn't have live Play by Play
