If you love basketball games, EA Sports thinks you are going to love the BounceTek technology in the new NBA Live 14.
EA brought Kyrie Irving on stage at E3 Monday to show off technology that, for the first time, doesn't make the ball go automatically back to your hand when you dribble. BounceTek allegedly adds real-time physics to your handle to give you the ability to add creativity to your ankle-breaking. (Meanwhile, I would be dribbling off my foot just like I do in real life.)
And NBA Live 14 players will have to stay on their toes — the game's going to change practically every day. For the first time, more than 70 unique stats and player tendencies will be updated within an hour of the final buzzer in every NBA game, affecting how their cyber counterparts dish the rock, shoot the J or D-up. EA is promising a new experience every time you pick up the controller.
EA is releasing NBA Live 14 for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year.
Looking forward to see what EA has been able to accomplish with it's 4 year hiatus from the NBA Live series. We all know how terrible "Elite" it was easily the worst sports game ever developed but for whatever reason I have faith in EA to make a decent and enjoyable basketball sim for the next gen consoles. Live is not in competition with 2K at all and won't be for another 2-3 years on IF Live 14 is actually good and we all have to realize that. I look at Live as an alternative to the NBA 2K series but I won't lie and act like I haven't wanted to play a different basketball sim for the past couple years. Good feedback is starting to come out from media who have seen the game in action which is very good to hear so i'm looking forward to seeing how the game progresses within the coming months prior to release.
