• NBA LIVE Mobile Now Available Worldwide

    After months of being available only in Canada and select regions, NBA LIVE Mobile is now available worldwide in the App Store and on Google Play.

    The mobile title is similar to Madden NFL Mobile in design and features as both were designed by EA Swiss Sarl with content being created/updated by the Forge live content team at EA Tiburon. Game modes include: Live Events, Head-to-Head Games, Season Mode, Friends Matches, Leagues, Collections, and Store/Auction House. The game uses a modified version of the NBA LIVE 10 game engine, which is considered by many to be the best in the history of the console franchise.

      - I set up a Canadian iTunes account when this game first launched to try it out. It's good and very similar to Madden Mobile in structure.

      I'll admit now, I prefer Madden Mobile for a few minor reasons:

      1) Madden allows you to turn off the analog stick and basically play with by just tapping on the screen where the pass or ball-carrier should go. NBA LIVE requires you to play the virtual stick and skill move buttons. I just don't enjoy playing games like that on a tablet/phone.

      2) The game uses a line-up system, so you can't just build one mega-team off the bat. Players you earn fit/play on one of pre-established roster/line-up types: Two-way, Small Ball, Defensive, Big Man, Shooting.

      I do like the variety of Live Events and that by putting in the time you can establish a pretty good team, much like Madden Mobile. If you're a fan of Madden Mobile, I'd recommend giving NBA LIVE Mobile a try.

      I am not a mobile gamer at all, but have to admit that I'm having fun with this.

      The NBA Live Mobile "12 Days of Christmas" promo is now underway.

      This one is pretty active (events almost always going) with mystery presents and jerseys that be accumulated and traded in for items. It seems pretty easy to at least get something with this promo.
