Props to shady520 for posting about it in the discord.

Certain retailers have NBA live 18 preorders discounted to $39.99, $31.99 with gcu. When the game releases it will be 59.99.

Can't seem to find it on the gs website, but it does come up on the app.

I want this to be good but I'm worried it'll bomb harder than the Rockets in the playoffs

I think I will hold out until there is a WNBA Jam game.

Apparently this is a move by EA to compete. Price goes back up on release date

I'll try the demo this weekend and preorder if it's good. Worst case you return it after release date.

I've been playing 2k since Live put Melo on the Cover (that game destroyed the series); but I might give this a whirl at the discounted rate.

No need to give props to me, here are the gamestop, XBL and PSN links

 

PS4 GS $39.99- http://www.gamestop....-live-18/151938

PS4 PSN $40.19 - https://store.playst...BALIVE18G4DDRNA

 

X1 GS $39.99  - http://www.gamestop....-live-18/151936

X1 XBL $39.99 ($35.99 w/ EA Access) - https://www.microsof...2dv9jqd3w?rtc=1

 

This is on BB's list of $10 back in rewards for GCU members too.

Not a huge sports game fan but for $32 with $10 back in points day one, I'm in. Great deal.

That is 2k18 which is a different series.

This is a great move by EA IMO. I enjoyed the last one more than 2K to be honest. It plays a great game of basketball and you don't have to deal with all the server crap 2K can't handle.

This can be a TRAP.  EA always put out 1/2 game and sell Season Pass for another 1/2 game & charge you extra $30 or $40 for it.  I sure EA will chop off few Main Modes of this game and put them on Season Pass.

Hmm I have to say the past NBA Live games have been pretty rough.  I would seriously wait for reviews on this....  I want 2k18 on the Switch, but I am not jumping into that head first either..................

You can download the demo on xbox one and ps4 and see if you like it yourself. From what ive seen, the menus and navigation are superior to 2k, while the movement and player reaction has had some criticism. The One mode, which is the my player portion has been pretty good and the rpg like system is a nice touch. It has been pretty good for me so far and if the online is better then that is a huge plus to me. The face model scan through the app is pretty cool too, the created player looks just like me lol.

Now if only 2K could get back into making football games again. I still have my copy of ESPN NFL 2K5 on the Playstation 2.

Competition is a good thing, so I hope the game is good and does well enough for EA to continue to invest into the series.

I'll try the demo and if it's good, I will probably hop on this.

Haven't EA's basketball games been a series of disasters for years? I recall them cancelling one very shortly before it came out, to the point where copies had actually already shipped to retailers.

So.... how has that Madden season pass been the past few years?

Last time this happened was NF2K5 going for $20. It was also really really good.

However, the NFL2K series was consistently getting better.

Ya know I would be wiling to give it a chance again (downloading the demo now). I've just grown sick of the same BS things in 2K year after year and I really liked 15 when I grabbed it real cheap during an XBL sale. Unskippable Stephen A Smith though...  :puke:

Would buy live in a second if BestBuy included the $10 GC with it. 

 

Instead, I'll probably wait for it to hit EA Access.

My problem is when 2k  lowered the price for football  EA bitched out and bought the license.    A lot of people cannot remember when live owned the basketball world in the 90's   The live cult was hooked it took 10 years of straight crap for fans to finally say live is trash and walk away.  Dudes would almost come to blows it you trashed live.

 

EA did it to themselves on this one.  Live should hold the same status as madden.   I may try it this year 31 gcu is worth a shot. 

The most valuable lesson here is no matter how big you are the mighty can fall.

 

The postman says the review will average 7 

 

2K is just too polished

Anything EA is terrible intrinsically. That being said, the best thing that can come from this is that 2K fixes their servers and up the odds for MyTeam packs.
