Taking A Time Out: EA Sports Delaying Release Of "NBA Live 13" Game Indefinitely
Published September 14, 2012
APPLES & ORANGES: EA Sports on Thursday released the first trailer for "NBA Live 13," and ESPN.com's Jon Robinson wrote that showed "why the game needs to be delayed." Robinson: "Watch the 'NBA Live 13' trailer, then watch the 'NBA 2K 13' video and tell me how these two games are even playing in the same league. Makes me wonder if 'NBA Live 13' will ever come out at all" (ESPN.com, 9/13).
PRE-ORDERS UP FOR SOCCER TITLE: EA Sports said Friday they have received more than 875,000 pre-orders for its upcoming soccer title, "FIFA Soccer 13," set to release Sept. 25 in North America. The pre-order total is up 37% in Europe and up 62% in North America compared to a similar point last year. An online demo of the game has been downloaded by 1.99 million people in 73 countries, up from 28% compared to last year's demo release (Fisher).
