EA Sports used to dominate basketball simulation video games. Then it took a tumble and disappeared from the niche for a couple of years.

Now it is trying to snag back the crown that was taken by its rival 2K Sports, NBA 2K series. Can it make a comeback? Well, if hype is factored in, EA Sports is already halfway there.

You have to remember, EA Sports is part of EA, the second largest video game publisher in the US and a massive marketing behemoth. Some observers are saying that maybe EA’s disappearance from the genre is a good thing because it forces them to truly come out swinging for the fences. The new game, out to prove something, has to show that it is not just comparable to NBA 2K but several notches better.

In essence, the folks at EA Sports are playing with no safety net with NBA Live 13 – there is no exclusive license it can fall back on or an established fan base to draw pre-orders from.

It is starting from scratch. It also has to start from the humiliating fiasco that was NBA Elite. All this points to the position shared by some game observers that NBA Live 13 will have to come out with a brilliant game. Anything else will be a failure. Even matching NBA 2K’s quality is not enough. It has to answer many a jaded player’s question: “Why should I buy this title instead of the market leader?

All bets indicate that EA Sports will give it its best effort. However, would it be enough? Many game industry observers say that NBA 2K is probably the best basketball simulator in the past few years. That’s going to be a tough hurdle to overcome. In this age of high development costs and an almost Hollywood-like “You are only as good as your last hit” publisher mentality, the stakes are extremely high.

If NBA Live 13 flounders, it may be game over for EA Sports in this niche. Expect EA to come out with it all its got. However, don’t expect NBA 2K to take it in the chin lightly.

It will also put up a f!ght since decreasing sales and increasing development costs have also made it a do or die situation for the current market leader. If NBA 2K cannot survive the onslaught of NBA Live 13, we might just see 2K Sports implode. Seriously. The stakes are that high.

i read an article a few weeks ago where a dude from the Live team said that instead of having to figure out alley-oop situations yourself, the cpu will automatically do it for you when you press the pass button. definitely wont be buying, if the game is full of noob sh*t like that. i think they're trying to bring in casual players
