NBA Live 17 will not arrive this fall, but early next year under the more generic title NBA Live. The series hasn’t been so hot for a while but try try again? On an investor call, EA said more details are coming soon, and a mobile game is coming later this year. The NBA All-Star game takes place in February.
The curtain comes down on Kobe Bryant’s 20-year NBA career tonight, and nothing makes you realise just how old this guy is like seeing the gulf between the first and last video games he made an appearance in.

As promised, NBA Live 14 pumped out a very large patch today to address the many shortcomings, omissions or problems the title showed at launch. Straight away it includes something that should make the game a lot more understandable: A simple practice mode.

To a video gamer, the pairing was so natural that I didn't recognize how unusual it really was.

The two have, virtually anyway, worked millions of games together in…
This weekend NBA Live 14 rolled out a patch, but cautioned it was more of a building-block update, designed mostly to help future patches improve the game more conspicuously. The team also dropped this tutorial video, which is notable because it appears to show a new practice mode.
NBA Live 14 showed a lot of problems at release a month ago—problems EA Sports vowed to fix through title updates. They rolled out the first patch for the game on Friday and, like everything else with this series for the past three years, it's another promise this will be a good game at some future date.
