The Cavs guard is in the game.

We had already heard that Kyrie Irving would be covering NBA Live 14, but here’s video of the official announcement, courtesy of the folks at EA Sports.

    Oh no, the way his mouth moved looked like when they dub english over a chinese kung-fu film. Live are going to have to pull a lot of rabbits out of the hat to make 2k vs Live a competition. Myplayer and the array of teams available to play as in 2k are just too much.

    Hope its decent enough. 2K is nice but they’re getting too hollywood.

  • OleOtis

    Not really into games like I used to be in high school/college, but 2K has the basketball simulation genre on lock. Not sure there’s anything NBA Live can do about it. EA Sports should maybe think about going back to the NBA Street franchise. A little arcade game for the kids. NBA Live had a great run during the 90s though. So many childhood memories with Sega Genesis and Playstation. Started with the Bulls vs. Blazers and the 92 Olympic Team game. Jordan vs. Bird. No. 99 (Michael Jordan) for the Bulls. Good stuff.

  • Call me a hater

    bet you only play with the heat and use that as an excuse

  • LLC#12

    I actually don’t think I’ve played as the Heat since they got LeBron. What is the relevance of that anyway? Use it as an excuse for what?

    Honestly, if it’s fun, i’ll play it.
    I don’t care about mechanics and such for video games.
    When I play games it is that.
    It’s a game for fun.
    I want to have fun.
    I might cop it if I get the new PS4. Renting it first tho.
    2k will be better for the more realistic exp though I am sure.

  • Dagger

    Yeah, but doesn’t realism roughly equate to fun when you’re playing a sports game?

  • LakeShow

    Not for me. I love NBA Jam and Street and such. To each their own though. I understand why it would be more fun, it just isn’t for me. Unless it’s 100% realistic.

  • Max

    It doesn’t work that way with NBA live, because they try to make it realistic and if it doesn’t end up being that way it just sucks.
    At least in NBA jam and street you can jump above the rim and stuff.

  • LakeShow

    That’s fine if that is how it is for you, but i’ve had a blast playing Live 08, and 10

    i like that people believe this is in game footage. because you see sooo much from the defenders POV in a game.

    Know what I wish could make a comeback? The College Hoops 2K franchise. I still play my old College Hoops 2K8.

    NCAA has the Ed O’bannon lawsuit. You won’t be seeing a college anything for a looooooooong time. Any sport. This last NCAA football was the last of its kind

    Im after realism accuracy and that “actual game” feel. LIVE looked for it. 2K found it and it hasnt been an even battle between the 2 titles since. I would definitely give Live a look. Back in the late nineties early 2000′s I def chose live over 2k but I went to 2k fullstop after live 09. They just couldnt get past that “live” style…. if the new release feels less live a LIVE game and somthing altogether different then we could have a decent choice between two top tier games.

    Australia wins again!!!

  • Interdico Scriptor

    Izzatafact? interesting?

  • Interdico Scriptor

    why??? pls explain

  • Interdico Scriptor

    Agreed… they were both good until 09/10. If anything, Live was Better. I’m not rapt in how ‘real’ they are now. Stupid sh*t still happens all the time…

  • Interdico Scriptor

    I reckon SLAM should give you a page and we all just talk to you everyday… that’s pretty much what happens anyway! kudos for the effort nemesis.

    for some good reason lol http://www.southparkstudios.com/full-episodes/s15e05-crack-baby-athletic-association

    yes, that’s why they pulled their contract with EA 2 weeks ago. The Ed O’Bannon lawsuit may cost them BILLIONS of dollars.
