NBA Live 2002 ships
Electronic Arts announced today that they have shipped NBA Live 2002 for the PS2 and PSX. The game will feature many extras, especially in the PS2 version, which will showcase a franchise mode. In this mode with the PS2, players will be able to draft rookies, sign free agents, and release and trade players over many seasons. NBA Live 2002 is the eighth game in the series.
"We started with the goal of making NBA Live 2002 the complete basketball experience, from pregame to postgame and everything in-between,'' said producer Kevin Wilkinson. "Our focus was improving the gameplay and making the game so real that it feels like the player at home is actually perspiring underneath the hot arena lights. We added amazing pregame locker room scenes, bench scenes, and player interaction, in addition to new shooting and passing physics, more than 50 dunks, and a variety of new finishing moves close to the basket."
