"Soundtrack by MICK" is the latest reason in the countdown.

"LIVE Motion" is the latest reason...probably a bit more significant than the soundtrack for most people. ;)

I guess they're mixing it up, and threw that one in there since they were revealing the soundtrack that some day. But yeah, I'd say the latter is a bit higher up on the totem pole.

I am surprised that they have Live Motion so high up the list considering how high they spoke of it as a main improvement to gameplay

What the hell is a MICK.


There is only one reason that'd get me to play this game and that would be a PC version.
There's always next year.

I could be wrong, but I don't think so. I believe they've gone with customisable indoor courts, whereas Live has gone with authentic indoor and outdoor courts in Pro-Am.

What are the game changer videos?

That's the 2nd reason why we should play?

And with pro am being the main feature I kind of feel nba live has lost sight of what the game should be... A nba basketball sim that focuses on NBA teams, we already know that EA said that dynasty mode took a back seat in favour of pro am but I kind of feel like they are forgetting what the game should center around.

I do agree, but there was no way they were going to catch up to MyLEAGUE so quickly. They needed a hook, and LIVE Pro Am with the Summer Circuit and LIVE Run is a good one. Moving forward though, Dynasty absolutely does need to get better.
