NBA Live 09 Misinformation[edit]

Please do not post unverified information about NBA Live 09. I removed some information that was incorrect, in addition to being uncited. For instance, someone said that Dwight Howard will be on the cover; this is untrue, as he is actually under contract with Midway Games to appear on the cover of NBA Ballers Chosen One. Please monitor this situation and help me to keep unverified and erroneous information off of this page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ShinyHubCaps (talkcontribs) 03:41, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Cover Art Chart[edit]

What happened to the table/chart with all the NBA Live covers since the beginning? Why was it deleted, that was the best and most viewed resource on the NBA Live Wikipedia article? Can someone please put that back up?

Colour choices in Xbox 360 version[edit]

The developers of NBA Live 07 (and 06) have failed to realise that purposely toning down the saturation of colours (on player's uniforms etcetera) is something that PlayStation 2 developers did in an attempt to simulate photo-realism on an underpowered machine. The Xbox 360 NBA Live games still use subdued (unrealistic) colour schemes regardless of trends in next-gen games to do otherwise - Madden NFL 07, NHL 07 and WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2007 all use vivid colours (in Madden for example the grass is noticebaly more saturated in colour on 360 than on PS2, as are the player's uniform and helmet colours). We should hope the developers don't continue to disregard this trend and use washed out colour schemes in the next-generation NBA Live 08 for Xbox 360 and PS3. This can't be included in the main article as it is a minor issue but it could remain here (on the discussion page) for clarification of the problem. Mr.bonus 18:13, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Questions with trivia[edit]

I've never had an NCAA Basketball game so I can't verify this, but shouldn't the Thomas & Mack Center appeared in one of the college basketball games before NBA Live of Arena Football.

NBA Live 2008[edit]

The release of NBA Live 2008 is scheduled for October 2.


I've removed Spanoulis as a listed cover athlete for '08. Very often illegal copies of the game are produced with unofficial covers, particularly PC versions of the game in European territories. No press release from EA lists him as a cover athelete, and I can find no corroborating source (say an interview with the athlete) to confirm. Additionally, EA only produces localised covers for territories where the game itself is localised - there is no Israel- or Greek-language of the game, hence no related cover (in contrast to Germany, France, and Spain, for example - those languages are supported). Given that Spanoulis was released from the NBA and was not under contract to a NBA team at the time the game was released, the fact that he would appear on the cover is unlikely. Additionally, the photo I was sent as evidence clearly shows a Champion logo on the jersey - Adidas is the official clothing sponsor of the NBA and a major sponsor for the game; there is no way a competing clothing manufacturer's logo would have been allowed to appear on any version of the game. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Krisfulton (talkcontribs) 22:01, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
