NBA Live 14 launching November 19

Professional basketball game from EA Sports releasing on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this fall.

by

NBA Live 14--the first professional basketball game from EA Sports since NBA Live 10--will launch for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 19, the developer has announced.

The PS4 launches November 15, while the Xbox One will be released on November 22.

EA Sports also released the first gameplay screenshot from NBA Live (at right), showing off the visuals that the next-generation consoles are capable of rendering.

Previous installments NBA Elite 11 and NBA Live 13 were both canceled at the 11th hour.

NBA Live 14 runs on the EA Sports Ignite game engine and EA is pledging an "enormous financial commitment" to the title.

Competitor NBA 2K14 launches this fall for current- and next-generation consoles. It is 2K Sports' "biggest endeavor yet" and will feature Miami Heat star LeBron James on its cover.

2k b-ball fans should want this game to succeed as well. Everyone, including me, complain about the state of NFL games without competition. 2k has been slacking since live has been on the sideline, Live will help 2k step their game up. I'm rolling with 2k14, but I still want Live 14 to have a great showing.

I will not buy this game before I download the demo first. If the demo is great and it forces me to buy I will other than that it will rot on the store shelves. Of course I will be balling with 2k though on my brand new PS4

Unfortunately, I don't have a good feeling about this.  Last time I saw Live in action it wasn't looking too good.  Maybe they should hold it for just one more year....

And I am not one of the 2K zealots out there. I want there to be competition in the sports games market, so I hope both games are good.  I'm just not willing to bet on it.

live had three years to make this game it can't be just OK it should be better than 2k otherwise just give up.

I actually want to play this just to see if it could be any good cause 2k hasn't sparked my interest in the last 2 maybe 3 years and 2k14 sounds a lot like the Jordan 2k a few years back

I am  long time fan of Nba 2k series; going back as  early 2000's Dremacast  , but I am really frustrated with the lack of interest that 2K shown in improving online experience for the players;  their servers are awful.   So this said  I would really like NBA LIVE to give 2K run for its  money.  Competition is good for everyone 2k included.

if live is better than 2k why hasn't live had a game come out in the last three years?

NBA Live or Elite whatever they fucking call it LMAFO! EA should just commit suicide the only thing worse than this shit is Madden. Thank God David Stern said fuck you EA when the wanted to buy out the NBA license.

I think they're limiting their possible sales by not having this available for the 360 and PS3 like the 2K series has.  What do I know.  I'll be playing NBA 2K14 on Oct 1st.

I'm genuinely looking forward to playing this, and will try to pick it up sometime before Christmas. My November is already overbooked and over-budget.

The fact that EA hasn't really let anybody play  or preview nba and madden next gen makes me nervous about how bad they are. Don'tyou think if these games were good they would be trying to build more hype than they are?

This better be good considering how many years EA spent developing the title. Either way, I think it is a steep uphill climb against NBA2K at this point. The only opportunities left at this point are online team play and ultimate team. Gameplay and presentation elements in NBA2K are very polished.

NBA or Watch Dogs...not a hard choice

No thanks EA. You can force me into buying the Football and Hockey from you but I will get my basketball from 2k.

More EA garbage that will probably be shipped unfinished, buggy and borderline unplayable.

@AndrewV29 Simultaneous release with the PS4 version, and thursday has traditionally been the day to release videogames in the United States. I am aware that has changed this generation, with the advent of digital distribution, but thursday is still the day for videogames, while fridays are for theater releases, and tuesdays are for home video releases.

@kungfuj0 fuck no are you crazy EA has to release NBA live this year because we might not get another College football game until 2015

NBA Live 14 will be an "all new" (though it will probably play pretty much the same as always) failed attempt at a good Basketball videogame.

Have fun with that "all new" terrible gameplay.

I hope you're wrong because the 2k series desperately needs competition, for our sake. 2k has had fundamental, core flaws that sometimes are masked (sometimes not) for years. I hope Live 14 is good so 2k15 can be great.
