NBA Live for the iPhone now “Live” on App Store

nba-live-preview9For all you basketball fans out there, no doubt you’ve already penciled Oct 27th as the start of yet another NBA season. Personally, I can’t wait for my Raptors to be spanked by King James’ Cavaliers on their home opener (or not). But enough about what’s going to happen on the hardwood. On the virtual court, what’s certain is that gamers can finally take their favorite teams on the road and for the first time, play some sweet 5-on-5 ball on the iPhone/iPod Touch. Just released by Electronic Arts, NBA Live will deliver real league players, teams and a full 82 game season mode to help ease your thirst for all things basketball. Much like Madden and FIFA 10, you’ll be paying a “premium” price ($9.99) to play Live on your iDevice. Granted, if you’re a die-hard fan of the long running hoops series, there won’t be much debate as to which your next App Store purchase will be (In the voice of Marv Albert: “Yesssssssss!”). More casual fans of the sport may want to wait for our review before stepping up to the free throw line. Let the games begin!!!

With the NBA season just two weeks away, you were probably wondering just who was going to step up to the plate and bring some much needed hardwood action to the iDevice. If so, you should be pysched to hear that EA Mobile will be releasing their fabled NBA Live series on the iPhone/iPod Touch.

NOTHING BUT NET. NBA LIVE by EA SPORTST™ delivers the most realistic 5-on-5 action available for iPhone® and iPod touch®!  Tip-off anytime, anywhere, and watch your game come to life in vivid 3D.

Having recently released Madden NFL 10 and FIFA 10 to the delight of sports gaming fans, EA look to score once again with the iPhone’s first fully featured 5-on-5 basketball title. While Franchise mode seems to be missing, you’ll still be able to play with all 30 teams and real players to boot. That’s right, you won’t be seeing the likes of Kubei Branyon or Lebon Jimenez anytime soon. For all basketball junkies (including myself), be sure to keep an eye out for its release later this month. More screenshots and details after the break.
