  1. lol NBA 2K19 cover athlete gonna be Giannis Antetokounmpo.. no cover athlete for Madden 19 : geez, what take EA so long to announce who gonna be on cover athlete for Madden 19 standard edition
    I like NBA LIVE 18 and looking forward to pre order LIVE 19.
    So with that, I’d still want to say, the cover, looks studio cheap. Can they have some art background showing the global themes of The One?
    Anyway, I always buy digital so this don’t matter.

    Can anyone help EA suggest LIVE 19 cover art with Joel Embiid and Trust the Process?
    Well from the looks of it, it seems that EA is going with the same standard edition cover theme for all their sports titles this year. With the cover athletes secondary team color as a solid background, along with the cover athletes actual physical shadowed outline, making the cover athlete stand out even more.

    For marketing purposes, Embiid > Giannis.

    Y'all know that LeBron is cover of 2k19 and not Giannis. I expect Giannis to be in cover for NBA Live 20 though

    If that's the case (I don't think it is cause I don't think people will be paying more for the LeBron addition), I won't be buying 2K lol.

    I think this cover is so much better than Live 18.
    I really enjoyed playing NBA Live 18, and ended up putting more time into it than 2K18. With Embiid on the cover, I will definitely buy Like 19 on day one, and 2K19 maybe, at some point down the road.
    Couldn't be more excited, which I know is completely silly.

    Instead of the dreaded, 'The One', I wish the cover said Franchise Mode Edition. I would be ready to preorder if that were the case lol.

    Hate that you franchise guys get ignored, but I think that's just the state of gaming right now.

    How so?
    At the very least Live 18 displays a modicum of creativity with the streets/league contrast whereas Live 19 is literally just an image of Joel Embid.
    Both titles continue the trend of most sports games having whack art, 2k19's Lebron cover at least has some personalization with the quotes which should be the way forward instead of a lame picture of an athlete with a colored background.

    I like the pose. Plus the red pops. It will catch the eye in video game aisles.

    Gianni’s will be the cover athlete for the standard edition of 2K19

    Haven't seen this anywhere. Saw LeBron 2k vid and assumed it was only him

    Perfect cover athlete for a game that had to take two years off for being broken

    I wish NBA star would tweet this at Embiid. Especially Giannis since he's 2k cover. Twitter would be a riot
    He was all over the E3 trailer so I was kind of expecting this.
    It looks like the release price for this game will be $59.99, while I didn't expect it to be $29.99 again I was hoping for maybe $29.99 or even $49.99. Oh well

    I actually like what they're doing with the covers this year. It's a very nice and streamlined look. 2K's cover for both LeBron and the leaked one for Giannis look good as well. Very creative.
