Some new NCAA 14 screenshots have been released, featuring ‘Bama, Texas and OU. Nothing really groundbreaking here, but one thing I noticed is that the end zones in the Cotton Bowl are reversed. Minor detail that I’m sure nobody cares about.

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.
EA Sports is set to hold down its exclusive license with FIFA until December 31, 2022, the two outlets announced earlier this morning. For EA Sports, this means that they’ll retain exclusive rights to produce a soccer video game under the FIFA banner.
The FIFA offers benefits to both sides, with EA Sports watching revenues grow on the strength of 14.5 million copies of FIFA 13 sold this year.
FIFA General Secretary Jérôme Valcke on the parternship:
“The FIFA games are an essential part of our communication efforts around the FIFA brand and its values. To measure the strength of our partnership with EA, it is enough to remember that more than 2.5 million football fans took part in the FIFA Interactive World Cup this year.”
Arguably the best in sports gaming, FIFA and EA Sports will continue to pump out the popular title for the next decade and probably beyond.
We’re into the second round of the playoffs, and another NBA 2K13 roster update is out. It’s not a big one, with just three players being affected. Huge surprises that Steph Curry and Nate Robinson haven’t been upgraded, despite their performance so far in the playoffs.
- Luol Deng (CHI): Injured, -9 (74 OVR)
- Marc Gasol (MEM): +2 (85 OVR)
- David Lee (GS): Returns from injury, (84 OVR)
Players still missing: Aron Baynes (SA), Ben Hansbrough (IND), Chris Johnson (MIN), Diante Garrett (PHX), Dwayne Jones (GS), Jarvis Varnado (MIA), Jerel McNeal (UTA), Josh Akognon (DAL), Julyan Stone (DEN) Justin Holiday (PHI), Kent Bazemore (GS), Kevin Jones (CLE), Kevin Murphy (UTA), Malcolm Thomas (CHI), Mickael Gelabale (MIN), Scott Machado (GS), Shavlik Randolph (BOS), Terrel Harris (NWO), Tim Ohlbrecht (HOU), Willie Reed (MEM)

Over 12 million votes have been cast, up 70% from last year’s campaign.
