I am genuinely excited about NBA Live 14. I have never been able to latch onto the 2K game and yes, I realize that I must be one of the minority. Live used to be a yearly buy for me going all the way back to NBA Live 95 on SNES, to NBA Live 97 on my Sega Saturn and on into the PS2 days. So it hurt me to see the franchise fall so hard on its face the past five years.
Now after false starts and cancellations weeks before release, EA is set to bring back NBA Live to the PS4 and Xbox One. I am not expecting it to beat the 2K series or even compete, but I hope that it will be a fun restart to the series.
Today, the cover for the game was officially unveiled with Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving. There is also a short announcement clip below using the game engine to introduce Irving to the masses.
