NBA LIVE is back, rewriting the book on authenticity and connectivity while staying accessible enough for new users. At the heart of the new LIVE experience is Dynamic DNA, emulating - with absolute precision - an NBA player in every sense of the word. LIVE has gone international too, adding an expanded FIBA World Championship; 24 FIBA teams and rosters hailing from the US, France, Spain and beyond playing on FIBA regulation courts.
Enhanced controls make every drive, shot and dunk more authentic, with added Pick and Roll Control that allows direct handling of both the ball handler and the screener. Signature Playcalling now paints the court with routes for improved visibility, and is paired with authentic plays from real player data, while the all-new NBA Academy provides a place to train skills between those plays.
From player tendencies to deeper leagues to tighter online integration, NBA LIVE 09 is closer than ever to center court.
