NBA Live 2003 receives earlier release date
With the NBA season kicking off at the end of October and NBA 2K3 having an October 8 release date, Electronic Arts has decided to coincide with Sega's decision and has moved up NBA Live 2003's date to October 8 as well. All three next-generation consoles will see this new date; however, the PSOne version will be released October 15 and the PC version will be November 12.
Sega is hoping that their release of NBA 2K3 can help sales for the company, since Madden 2003 outsold NFL 2K3 8 to 1. Sports titles make up a large majority of sales for both companies, and these release dates are important for both companies.
