With the Tiger Woods franchise taking a break next year to focus on their next-gen game, the golf gaming world is wide open. Over the weekend, 2K Sports registered the domain 2KGolfLink.com. Now, before we begin speculation, this could mean anything; a mobile app, a golf simulation program, or just a decoy for something else:
If this is a console golf game, now would be the perfect time to jump in on it. Doubtful anything will be announced at E3 tomorrow, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
2K Sports has released a teaser for their upcoming trailer set to drop on June 6th, the same night as the start of the NBA Finals between the Spurs and the Heat. Not much to say about that teaser, other than the game footage looks the exact same as last year, but here you go.
Last night during Electronic Arts’ quarterly earnings call, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau said that his company was planning a “full reveal” of their games at the upcoming E3 conference. He also said that “this will include breakthroughs in graphics and gameplay for some of our biggest franchises including Battlefield, FIFA, Madden, NBA Live, and Need for Speed.”
The last few years have not been good for the NBA Live franchise. Their last release was in October of 2009 (NBA Live 10). They then retitled the franchise to NBA Elite. NBA Elite 11 was delayed for “concerns of gameplay polish”, but was later cancelled. The same story repeated for the next couple years. Because of the delays, 2K Sports has taken and ran with the NBA series, so it’s going to be interesting to see how gamers react to NBA Live coming back.
Look for the game to be released on the next generation consoles (PS4 and XBOX whateveritsnameis). We’ll know more information during E3 so follow us on Twitter for updates.

On the Eastern side, it’s all sweeps: Heat over Bucks, Nets over Bulls, Hawks over Pacers, and Knicks over the Celtics. Here are your stats:
