    EA SPORTS has released the full track listing for NBA LIVE 15. As was the case with LIVE 14, the game soundtrack will be curated by MICK.

    According to MICK, here is how he selected the songs for the game: "I prefer new and upcoming dope stuff. Artists either next to blow, currently about to blow, or maybe someone who I think should have blown in the past that I want to give a "veteran lift" to."

    The soundtrack features 26 songs as well as 30 custom mixtape bumpers that play between tracks. Continue on to see the full song listing as well as a Soundcloud link to listen to the LIVE 15 soundtrack. ...

    EA SPORTS has disclosed the full feature set and details for NBA LIVE 15 ahead of its October 28 release. (Full details on Live Ultimate Team and improvements will be discussed at a later date.)

    While the game features many of the same basic modes as NBA LIVE 14, Rising Star (the single-player career mode) has perhaps received the most amount of improvements. The mode has now been rebranded as JORDAN Rising Star where the user will first prove their worth in the Take Flight Showcase Game before being drafted. Users can start as reserves with limited playing time where they earn more minutes with strong performances on the court. Rising Star in LIVE 14 featured 22 gradable on-court actions, while LIVE 15 now includes 85+. For the full list of Rising Star improvements, check out this PDF from EA SPORTS.

    Among the other improvements include new Big Moments challenge types, an onboarding system featuring cover athlete Damian Lillard, new simulation options, improved Dynasty AI & logic, and more.

    EA SPORTS has posted a blog and video briefly detailing the offensive improvements coming to NBA LIVE 15.

    This year, the fast break is more effective with the ability to pass ahead to teammates on the go and they will now fill the proper lanes in transition. The pick and roll system takes a page from NBA LIVE 10 and will provide visual feedback to show if the screener will slip, roll, or pop after the pick. The playcalling system has now been streamlined to the directional pad, allowing users a quicker way to get the offense started and in motion.

    A major complaint from NBA LIVE 14, the shot feedback system has been refined to show Shot Timing and Shot Quality. The player indicator will show if the player is in his range and quality (open, somewhat guarded, closely guarded) and the Shot Timing text will indicate if the release was at early, perfect, or late.

    EA SPORTS has revealed the top rated players by position and specific categories as well as team rankings in NBA LIVE 15.

    No surprise - the top rated player in the game is LeBron James, followed closely by the reigning MVP Kevin Durant. The top six players in the game and their overall rating are: CLE SF LeBron James (95), OKC SF Kevin Durant (94), LAC PG Chris Paul (94), NYK SF Carmelo Anthony (92), OKC PG Russell Westbrook (91), and LAC PF Blake Griffin (91).

    The game features fourteen players rated 90 overall or higher.

    Through YouTube personality Chris Smoove, 2K Sports has released the opening sequence and some news on MyCareer mode in NBA 2K15.

    This year the mode will start users as undrafted free agents and they must work their way up the ranks in the NBA. The opening storyline focuses on your player being upset with his agent who projected he would be drafted, only to see his name not called on draft night. Players will begin their career in January (not October) with a series of 10-day contracts and playing time/results helping them to progress. There will also be no Rookie Showcase to help determine your player's initial ratings. The user will also get to experience free agency, though no exact details on the methodology were disclosed. There will also be a second voice option for your MyCareer player.

    Among other changes/improvements: 'Coaching 101' will help you learn what the coach and team expect from you, Pharrell will interact with your player in at least one scene.

    NBA 2K15 will include a new in-game video show/hub called "2KTV." The in-game channel will feature host Rachel DeMita and provide updates on game features, NBA 2K community-inspired content, and interviews with NBA players, coaches, and experts. The first full episode on 2KTV will air on the game's launch, October 7.

    More on the show: The real-life DeMita — not an animated replica — will greet you every time you put on the game. She’ll provide a brief update on the latest happenings in the NBA 2K community. She might be back later with highlights of your game and ask you how you did it.

    The actual show will be streamed into the game once a week and is planned to last about 15 minutes. It will feature fast-paced segments from highlights of actual NBA 2K games played by users who allow 2K to access their systems through the DVR function, plus highlights of NBA 2K tournaments and other large-scale events and interviews with actual game users and tournament winners and exclusive interviews with NBA players, coaches and experts.

    While NBA 2K15 has been ramping up their news and information, it appears we finally know the true definition of the game's #YourTimeHasCome marketing campaign. A video from KTVU shows off 2K Sports' new "Scan Your Face" technology, allowing PS4/XB1 users to get their face into the game and on created players via their consoles camera. The technology/methodology seems very similar to EA's last-gen 'Photo GameFace' feature.

    The video shows the easy process and in-game result utilizing NBA 2K15 Community Manager Ronnie Singh. Continue on to check out the video.

    UPDATE - 2K Sports and several NBA 2K community members have put out videos and screenshots showing off the FaceScan process and their final player scan. They have been added after the jump. ...

    EA SPORTS has posted a new blog showcasing some of the shoes that will be featured in NBA LIVE 15. Scanned into the game using the same technology utilized for player faces, uniform material, etc. the shoes appear in these screenshots to be as realistic as have ever appeared in video games, not without reason. More than any other sport, sneaker-heads expect a plethora of options, especially with many players having contracts with shoe manufacturers, if not their own specially-branded shoes.

    The NBA LIVE series has been known for attention to detail when it comes to kicks and it appears that will continue - if not expand - with NBA LIVE 15 when it releases on October 28. Continue on to see images on the shoes from LIVE 15. ...

    A new video narrated by FUT Associate Producer Marcel Kuhn discusses and shows some of the changes and improvements coming to FIFA 15 Ultimate Team. Some of these include Concept Squads, Friendly Seasons, the ability to Loan Player(s), and also 50+ Legends (exclusively on Xbox).

    However, not all is perfect in FUT-world. With so many users attempting to cheat and scam others, the FUT Trade Offers feature has been removed from FIFA 15. Also aiding in user security, players using the FUT 15 Web App will need to sign in via Origin for an extra layer of security.

    We're not sure what's worse: Those working to ruin the experience for others by misleading and cheating them or the people who fall for such scams. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Either way, these exploits have led to a popular aspect of the mode being removed.

    At this week's GameStop Expo, NBA 2K revealed a new mode coming exclusively to the last-gen (PS3 & 360) versions of the game, entitled 2K Heroes. This unique mode features eight different teams helmed by current and former NBA players including Clyde Drexler, Stephen Curry, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, David Robinson, and James Worthy with the five-man rosters selected by each respective captain.

    In 2K Heroes, users will be able to select their choice of team and play against any of the other squads. The team that has the most victories by the All-Star Weekend will 'win' the competition and 2K Sports will make a donation to the charity of that respective team's captain.

    While many companies have either abandoned the last-gen consoles or are only putting out legacy editions (updated rosters), 2K Sports deserves credit for making these versions of NBA 2K15 unique entries in the series. According to vgchartz, the last-gen versions of NBA 2K14 accounted for nearly 70% of that edition's sales, so continuing strong support for these consoles is a very wise economic decision. ...
