Last year Results and my prediction for 08

Postby JaoSming on Tue Apr 18, 2006 11:11 pm

EA should just incorporate things that they have been removing each year, for instance

Facial Expression On court (2000-2003)
Real time shadows (2000-2003)
Hi-res Textures (2003)
More Street Courts - Give me a break (2003)


Predictions for this year
Official Announcement May 8th
Game will NOT have the Next-gen engine, instead will be a port from the consoles again
New Game Mode to get criticism off the dynasty mode: I think some kind of player developement mode like Superstar in Madden
Finally hear us - Create a Team will be back
BUT ea i think will change file formats this year so advanced patching will not happen for monthes after release
PC will get Hi-res jerseys and stadiums like Xbox
bump mapping/normals on jerseys (like xbox version this year)
Jerseys will "move" (like 2k6 not XBOX 360)
Next-gen Menu System will be incorperated somehow, someway
There will be another 1v1 court to play on (along with Tandy from this year and the Urban Court) The 2003 practice gym will no longer be in the game
Half Time will include a "play of the half" same with the end of game...but it will suck (lower resolution and it will use the "Superstar Camera")
ESPN bottom line - Just like MVP Baseball this year
Comeback Glitch will be dealt with

Auto-replays for non FSS plays
3 way trading will NOT be in the game
Cut scenes will be back

the Bench will react to plays like they did in 2003
no cheerleaders
there will be 1 more ref that will run the court with the players
and there will be a good net animation


Calling it...
Worst Soundtrack ever
Best Gameplay to date
Best Graphics yet
Worst Announcing



My stretch for this year, but i think they are actually going to do it.....Team practices like 2k6 and 3v3 mode[/list][/list]

I think these are thing that will be in because of "pressure"...i mean, in Madden they have a solid Franchise mode and this year itroduced the Superstar mode. It was a very good try (only have to lower the ability scores....IMO it's a bit unreal all those NFL parents...). So why not introducing these good things in NBA live???
The most important thing for me is gameplay....and then an enhanced Dynasty mode...third Superstar mode.
I really think we'll have the first two, and also the third, but superstar mode will not be very good....
Endure. In endurance grow strong.

I think they will have multiple FSS moves you can use per player instead of one per player.

If NBA Live 07 for the Xbox 360 lacks Dynasty Mode and the other extras we've come to enjoy, I could personally live with a port from the previous generation consoles. Or better yet, a PC-specific version.

Game will NOT have the Next-gen engine, instead will be a port from the consoles again Correct
New Game Mode to get criticism off the dynasty mode: I think some kind of player developement mode like Superstar in Madden Wrong
Finally hear us - Create a Team will be back Wrong
BUT ea i think will change file formats this year so advanced patching will not happen for monthes after release Correct Wrong Jerseys are still 256, but courts, stadiums, aiact, lighting and menus are still easy enough to edit
PC will get Hi-res jerseys and stadiums like Xbox Wrong
bump mapping/normals on jerseys (like xbox version this year) Wrong
Jerseys will "move" (like 2k6 not XBOX 360) Wrong
Next-gen Menu System will be incorperated somehow, someway Wrong
There will be another 1v1 court to play on (along with Tandy from this year and the Urban Court) The 2003 practice gym will no longer be in the game Wrong
Half Time will include a "play of the half" same with the end of game...but it will suck (lower resolution and it will use the "Superstar Camera") Wrong
ESPN bottom line - Just like MVP Baseball this year Wrong
Comeback Glitch will be dealt with Correct I think so at least

3 way trading will NOT be in the game Correct
Cut scenes will be back Correct kinda
the Bench will react to plays like they did in 2003 Correct kinda
no cheerleaders Correct

Calling it...
Worst Soundtrack ever Wrong IMO
Best Gameplay to date Correct IMHO yes
Best Graphics yet Correct After patches and after we crack the jerseys a hell yes.

My stretch for this year, but i think they are actually going to do it.....Team practices like 2k6 and 3v3 mode WrongWrongWrong





so yah, i suck at making predictions
so let's hope this one is wrong.

I honestly believe that we have witnessed the end of current gen Live on PC. With so many issues and the money they must be losing from the PC version I doubt that we will see Live 08 on the PC.

However, Microsoft seems to be pushing Games for Windows (Vista) so I believe we will see a next gen port in 09. And if not, hopefully we will have cracked player models, stadium files and animations so we can make the next gen game.
