NBA Live 09 will not be released for the PC

Talk about NBA Live 09 here.

Postby Andrew on Sat May 17, 2008 12:09 pm

Everyone's entitled to their own preference. I've played the 2K games and I certainly wouldn't call them awful but I find Isomotion very awkward so it's not the game for me. I'm more interested in seeing NBA Live improve rather than the competition at this juncture.

i don't know why Ea sports will make such a decision. it's not logical
if its about the next gen on pc, but ea have crysis !!!!!!!!!!!!!! ( BETTER THAN PS3 GRAPHICS ) and they are converting games from consoles to pc like burnout and mass effect.
so there's no reason for not releasing a pc version.
Oh and if they are complaining about about the sales they should blame them selves first, cause with a shitty game no one will wait his money on
WE WANT A NEXT GEN NBA LIVE ON PC :-x :-x :-x :-x :-x :-x :-x :-x

I doubt that it was a decision by the people directly involved in the production of the games, I would think that it was made after some number crunching by executives higher up. Hopefully, the situation will be re-evaluated and the series will return to the PC, ported from the 360/PS3.

They have an established fanbase and no competition on the PC platform, so that potential revenue might be a factor if/when they explore producing NBA Live for the PC again.

I totally blame you for this.. EA saw the demise of dotorg and figured there was no point in doing a PC version anymore.. :P

How can you say that? You probably have console, so you don't really give a fuck for what's goin' on!

When I first bought the game (08), and seen all that bugs, I thought that my cd has a fabric-mistake... So, somehow, I bought another cd! Shortly I realized that the game is just that way! I was so pissed that I broke the cd (the feeling was great, especially because it has Arinas on it).

After that disappointment, way to go with a new one. Way to go! :?

David was a prominent patchmaker a few years ago so I'm guessing he was being sarcastic with that remark rather than being spiteful to PC players.

I appreciate the kind words but it wouldn't make a shred of difference. As I said, I'm pretty sure this decision was made by executives higher up, not producers and programmers. It would not have been my call to make.

And yes, I offered my thoughts on the matter and I'm sure they are aware of the feedback in general. The bottom line is the series' future on the PC is currently up in the air and I think it would be in our best interests to demonstrate that there are people who want a PC version to show there would be support for future releases on the PC whenever we get the chance. However, given EA's current stance on the matter and the cancellation of Madden 09 for the PC, it seems the decision on NBA Live 09 is final. We could try campaigning for a PC port after the game comes out but if/when Live does come back to the PC it's highly unlikely to be this year.

So if David wasn't a patcher you have a free pass to say he doesn't give a fuck?

That's not my point.

My point is you were judging someone before that he doesn't give a fuck, then you find out he was a patcher so you apologize. If David wasn't a patcher, would you still apologize to him for not "really give a fuck for what's goin' on!"?

Agree with Kris, and I don't think there's a reason to hate hate hate here, on the network, can't we just all get along ? If not then just don't talk with the person you don't like, simple, but if you want to fight then do it with PM's.

I didn't know that asking a question is considered "fighting" and "hate" these days.

Dear pinoys and kids....when you grow up...you too will find a job and be able to buy a console so you can play nba live. I'm sorry EA got tired of not making money on the PC due to the fact that the market has changed and people kept freely downloading their products on the intarwebz. How dare they focus on less platforms with the slim hope of producing a higher grade software and how dare they be in business to make money to begin with huh? I feel your pain mother fuckers...I really do. Let me show how much I do by presenting this sympathy smiley face. :arrow: :roll:

They did what they wanted, it is as it looks, they lied you for years, lies about so many things in Nba live's, year after year the game was bad, so many comercials about new content/stuffs, graphic etc etc and then you AGAIN went to stores and bought fresh new nba live xxx:) and you gave the money for what? for nothing, for fixed previous year game packed into new cover year by year.

So after they f..k you soo much that it can be seen from the moon they decided to fly away and shut down the PC version of the game.

Congrats to all you who are still playing Nba live 2008 Pc !
Kobe ftw

Most of the promotion the last couple of years has concerned the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game though. It was never indicated that all the new features would be in the PC version; we just hoped that would be the case.

I've been out of the loop for a while. Bad news Live won't be released on PC but I got to admit I never played 08 on PC and I didn't like the 'feel' of the game on PS2. Just had a quick browse in the 'NBA Live PC' forum and that looks like a great idea. So I hope that can be a satisfying enough substitute when I feel like playing an NBA game. :)
