Review Fix has posted an interview with NBA Live 15 producer, Sean O’Brien. Not a lot of new information here, but Sean does mention the shooting system has been rebuilt.

Let's hope we start seeing some more video of it (longer than 15 second clips) in action next week.

Quote:
Review Fix: You guys have said on Twitter that shooting will “feel” better. Can you elaborate?

O’Brien: Sure, mainly it’s the way we rebuilt the shooting system. I’ve explained how we used to separate the gather (the footwork that leads to a shot, layup, dunk or any sort of jumping action) from the shot or the action requested by the player. It felt and looked bad. Momentum wasn’t preserved, and it led to some funky looking and feeling shots and dunks and layups. This should be one of the best and most rewarding things you can do on offense. So redoing that system, preserving the integrity of the motion capture data as well as momentum overall has led to an enormous improvement with shooting. Combining that with signature animation and a really intuitive player indicator and shot feedback system that always gives you an understanding of when you’re in a position to take a good shot makes shooting feel great.
