NBA Live 09 will not be released for the PC

Talk about NBA Live 09 here.

Even a PS2 port that's relatively bug-free would be half-decent this year, it sounds like a few features have made it into that version in one form or another including the "push" Dynasty. I'd prefer a 360 port but if the PS2 version is at all decent this year then I'd prefer that to no PC release at all.

hey i guess basketball gamers on pc will still have the chance to play basketball on their PCs afterall.. but the different thing is, it's 2K9!!! It is confirmed that it will be out on PC this october.

And another thing is that, i heard it will be a XBOX360 port..

I think this was really a bad move by EA not to release a PC version for this year. I love NBA Live, i played LIVE 97 until 07, but i have to be honest that 2K's gameplay is better.. we can all admit that, (im speaking of basketball simulation).. so that makes PC gamers try 2Ks brand of basketball, and there might be a big chance that they will stick to 2k for the succeeding version.. meaning EA will lose customers, and sales will go down..

oh well, but if we play 2k on PC, the question will be who will make the mods/patches???

Patches are great. That's the reason why i switched over to the PC when I found out through this web site that you can patched the rosters and the players uniforms, equipment, etc. Those were the days when Tim Tschirner and Lutz van Hasselt where running this site. I bought a a voodoo video card for my pc and that's when I started enjoying nba live on my pc. Unfortunately, consoles like the Playstation and the Xbox gave the PC a run for it's money. I used to play NBA Live on my old Sega Genesis console and then later on I bought a PS1. The NBA Live for the PS1 usually comes out first in the Philippines but once the PC version comes out I would junk my nba live for the ps and start playing the pc version of this game.

The patches somehow made this game more interesting particularly the shoe patches, uniform patches and roster patches. The last NBA live that I played on my pc was NBA Live 2001. I was suppose to buy NBA Live 2008 last year but I read here that it had some glitches and I decided not to buy it anymore. Hopefully next year EA is able to come up with a much better version of NBA Live for the PC next year.

I didn't know that Live 09 isn't coming to PC, but to be honest I wasn't going to buy it anyway. I'm so fed it up with these bad prev-gen ports of Live that I was going to buy me a PS3, get 2K9 and be over with it once and for all. But guess what... 2K9 is out on PC, it's a 100 times as good as how good Live 09 could've been. 2K9 is going to seriously cut into my Far Cry 2, Colonization and Left 4 Dead playing time, while Live was something I only played in times where no better game was available.

What are the chances of getting a 2K9 dowload section on this site, Andrew? The first cyberfaces and jersey are coming around and it'll be quite a chore to search for them in the forum.

Everybody, support 2K9. Don't pirate it. It's actually worth your money.

That would be great. One of the few great things about NBA Live on PC was this site/community. Without it, I would've stopped playing Live a long time ago.

If I may request something, it would be convenient if the 2K forum had similar subdivisions as the Live forums do, especially to sort the general topics from the patching and the technical ones.

Any time sounds good to me but I would assume it will probably be around the same time that the announcement that there wouldn't be a PC version was made this year.

That would be my guess. I don't know whether they'd officially announce it or whether that info would just come out in time during next year's preview "season".

This is indeed BS, i dont have a console, ive already lived with not getting 2k, ballers, street and the other fun basketball games on PC, and now there are NONE. This sucks. 09 was supposed to actually be good unlike the last 2 years. But anyone know of any PS3 or 360 Emulators or anyway to play it on PC? i Spent a lot on upgrading my PC this last year, no way i can afford a console any time soon.

derekj54, NBA 2k9 was ported from the 360 version to the PC this year. Look at the forums at the bottom of the main page.

Hello, Andrew and others at mod team, new member here. Gotta say looking at this 10 year old time capsule, i find it quite good read. Excuse my ignorance, but how things are now with you and NBA franchises on PC, Andrew.

Long story that browsing the Forum could probably answer in more detail, but the short version is that our modding community gravitated towards NBA 2K and have been doing a great job with it for years. There are still releases for the old PC versions of NBA Live, but we're still waiting for the new games to return to the platform.

Well, thanks for the reply, yeah, just few days ago started to browse this forum, but i gotta say, things have changed, haven't they, i mean, i'm personally thankful that 2K and Visual Concept decided to make this samaritan move and port NBA 2K9 to PC, of course, first years of 2K games on PC were shaky to say at least,but eventually in their latest they have made pretty good effort now, and yeah, i was as bummed as you guys when NBA Live was cut off from PC at 2008, tho i was 17 at the time and still bit naive to think that EA Sports might bring back NBA Live is coming back to PC, still wishing tho, but with their outings in last 5 years, i'm gonna be patient and wait and who knows we might have NBA Live and even NHL games on PC, i mean, many thought that FIFA will be cut off from PC and look what happened, it's still alive and kicking on PC. Anyways, thanks again for the answer, didn't expected for you to answer, but really fucking cool, Andrew.

Once the brand reestablishes itself and picks up some momentum, a PC port might be viable again. In the short term, they need to win back a good part of the market share, and keep improving the game. There's been progress on that front though, and we do need at least two NBA games on the market, so it's a promising sign moving forward.

Yeah, that would be awesome, as i'm all up for ethos of good competition, that's why i have been playing both FIFA and PES games every year. And i hope as well that EA Sports don't do the same shit as with NHL series, because to be brutally honest EA Sports aside from FIFA franchise, they have no other franchises on PC platform, which for me makes no sense. Extreme apologies if i'm keeping this off topic talk, but as you and other, i'm very much hopeful on EA Sports putting some series on a comeback on open platform as PC.
