I'm still confused about unlockable moves. I thought they were going to add "new" animations, but it sounds like there are just animations already on the disk that are just waiting for someone to go off so they can use them

Anyone know if there will be a way to keep rosters up to date automatically when you play a season?

Good to polish up on my knowledge of what I thought this living roster thing was. Should make everyone's game experience nice.

This just seems like such a rushed, poor mans Live 365 that I can't even get excited about it.

I GUARANTEE that the added animations are no big deal, and 90% of us won't even notice them when they're added.

It all sounds like a PR campaign to combat Live365.

I can't believe people are this naive. Do you have any idea how long it takes for these things to be designed, coded, and implemented into games? BOTH companies had this roster update stuff in their design docs a long long time ago. Now, there may have been leaked information early on in development on one side or the other, but just because Live announced theirs first means nothing. If you didn't notice, Live announced EVERYTHING much earlier. Does that mean 2k didn't even have a game at that point? Obviously not.

Designing games is real business people, adult stuff. None of this happens over night.

so you trust EA over 2k? EA is a gimmick company. at least 2k listens to their fans and takes it all to heart by addressing all the issues we complain about. maybe 2k copied/stole it from EA but at least we have a higher chance of trusting 2k on their gimmicks to actually work and be useful i dunno. EA just looks for a gimmick each year and markets everything behind it trying to sell to the masses instead of actually listening to us. how credible is this live DNA thing especially after years of poor sports games?

I heard that live09 is already haveing dirty disk problems. Ea's disk's and the xbox360 can never get along it seems.

At least living rosters is free!

although I like the NBA rewind feature on live
 
# 16 jerseyballer7 @ 10/07/08 09:04 AM
As long as they are consistent with their updates then it's all good.

I am more excited about "Living Rosters" than 365. EA seems to have a hard time getting features to work right, especially the first year it is in the game. I haven't had an EA game in the last few years that could track my RECORD (W-L) correctly, I sure as hell do not trust them to track the NBA correctly.

EA is already having server issues with the game, and disk errors too? I can't take my 360 sounding like my truck whenever I put in an EA game, Madden is horendous! Any other game makes no added sound, pop in Madden and I am on the freeway again!

Don't come in here with that garbage. Live 365 is free too if you actually buy a retail copy of the game..

Free only if you buy it new, on their terms. Not able to buy it used? Dumb. We still have record stores reselling music, thank god they don't have CD-Keys on them. This is a total greed move by EA, nothing more, nothing less. Fortunately, I am not buying Live, I learned my lesson with Madden.
