NBA Live 2006 video

NBA Live 2006 video

ThE_MaSTeR_3 sent me this video of NBA Live 2006 Xbox 360 version, taken from a TV show. Lots of gameplay to see, very nice video (but no sound).

This game appears to have no transitions between animations and for me that completely negates any graphical quality it may have.

Pretty good gameplay IMO, plus the player animation looks smooth. Lookin forward to the final version

worse live video i have seen. i hope its really old footage. the other live videos look ok. i hope madden has clean animations. tiger woods looks amazing.

Looks fun. Nice dunk animations, but slabs is right about the transitions. It would make the gameplay smoother. We'll have to wait and see.

2K owns this - Live doesn't even have a franchise mode - LMFAO

Ball physics are real sloppy too

Yhis game looks good but the animations are horrible and it moves like the current gen live.And im a Bulls fan so when i saw Chris Duhon steal the ball and run and dunk like that my prediction what bball was for me finally was made 2k6 for sure

OMG you actually posted this. thanks! Anyway I woke up this morning and turned the channel to nbatv and I see they have this hour special with season predictions but I notice its sponsored by ea and sure enough they showed tons of gameplay footage from live 06 on 360 so I decided to tape the show when it came on again so I dusted off my vcr and captured the gameplay footage bootleg style. Just trying to give back to this great site. Sorry about the small resolution and no sound nothing I could do about it.

2k6 "pwns" Live 06. Yeah, Live only have a regular season mode where you get to play only one season, which is lame and indicates that EA really wanted make this a launch game by skimping out on features. But really they "claim" they wanted to set it apart from the other version of Live 06 on the current gen platform. All they really had to do is transfer some more people to work on it, or heck hire more people with all the money they are making. It's a no brainer to wait for next year's Live 07. But I do realize that some people WILL buy this game, which is really a bad, because it'll encourage EA to do this every year.

Awesome..I don't know much about basketball really--but NBA Live 06 is getting played constantly in my livingroom by my buddies--I'm sure they'll like to see this.

NBA live is simply a arcade game....Its fun, Easy and kids love it. I am a EA NBA Live fan. but recently 2k has been on my num. 1 list of gotta have's. Live just dissapointed me this year they didnt try to pump it up. They just said we'll get the money fast because we can, were EA. Although 2k looks to smash live, live will have there own crowd. They want to lean towards hey, We just want the nba game and not the features" moto........I dont know about you guys but i want a realistic bball game....but i will still get both and get the best of both worlds

God I hate how similar the two NBA titles' names are. I keep downloading media for the crappy EA one expecting it to be the 2K one.

it doesnt look that good...
Commented on 2005-11-02 11:41:12
has live ever looked good?? ill admit they cleaned it up in the 360 version but it still as it did in the current gen fails in comparison to 2k6...besides ea has never fully supported xbox live and i know 2k6 will come as they always do with a buttload of online features like seasons and tourneys we can all enjoy
Commented on 2005-11-02 16:03:48
have you guys see the way the menu works??? the menu is a digital court and you play on it with up to 4 players... then you press start to pick game modes, and while it loads you still play with ur fav character.... example: 2 players playing 1 on 1 while they wait for there game to load.... i think that EA sports games will be much better next season.. because they had to work on this years new version and then make this one..i mean it doesnt even have the superstar mode that made the xbox 06 great or the dynasty... shame

About the game

What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks I didn't understand why he played so poorly either though. Subasic has been amazing the rest of the tourney. A big reason they won against Denmark and Russia (10 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks @MrWhite: I agree. Penalty like that shouldn't happen in a WC final. Croatia's keeper was screened for almost all of those goals, aside from the deflection (10 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Melmoth: oh god, that is amazing. the sounds and visuals are insane for a sim. (11 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (11 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (12 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (12 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (12 Hours ago)
