IGN has posted their NBA Live 15 hands-on preview (text version here). For some strange reason, they have an image of NBA 2K15's Kevin Durant in the thumbnail...

Quote:
Finally, I’ll note that the controls are much more responsive. Input lag has been greatly reduced if not eliminated, though at first touch I’d say NBA 2K still feels tighter. Fast breaks do feel a bit too frequent and easy to run right now, though.

The Crew has been delayed until December 2nd for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PC. They have plans to release a second console closed beta in November.

Quote:
The Crew has already completed three closed betas – two on PC, plus a limited technical beta on new-gen consoles – and each time they’ve kept their ears to the road, listening and learning. Yes, they were fiddling with things like server loads and tinkering with technical adjustments (as all developers do during closed betas). But the real win for gamers: They also enhanced the game itself to deliver more of what you love.
