Product Details:

NBA LIVE 365 takes the statistical data of Dynamic DNA and brings it to life. NBA LIVE 09 is now constantly evolving and authentically reflects what you see on the court in your virtual experience. Just like the real NBA game, players get injured, free agents sign late, great players go cold and no-names breakthrough. If you're a sports fan, this is a dream come true - NBA LIVE 09 is made fresh daily all season long.


  • Dynamic DNA - The brain behind the game is powered by the premier analytics provider using NBA data for over 20 NBA teams, which evaluates Player DNA that breaks down how a player scores, Team DNA that rates how the players on the floor play as a unit and Tendencies that refer to the percentage a player drives left, right or shoots from each spot on the floor.
  • Made Fresh Daily All Season Long - - NBA LIVE 365 takes it to a whole new level of connectivity, providing you an unprecedented level of authenticity and realism. Now every game truly is different powered by Dynamic DNA data updating daily.
  • Pick and Roll Control - This new two-man game mechanic lets you control both the ball handler and the screener, as you set screens and run two man plays.
  • Signature Playcalling - Introducing an accessible in-game playcalling system that pushes on-court visualization to guide you through the play. Linked to LIVE 365, this feature will suggest authentic plays for NBA's stars to run on the court.
  • NBA Academy - Get the most out of your game and hone your skills when you jump into game with an all-new practice facility.
  • Quickstrike AnkleBreakers - Force your defender to step up and guess what you'll do next. Trigger the turbo button and use the right analog stick for bold, responsive ball-handling moves to fake out your defender and create scoring opportunities.
  • Lockdown Defense Control - - Get in tight on a strong shooting guard to take away his shot, or play back to keep a quick point guard from blowing by you.
  • FIBA Expanded - - With 24 national teams to choose from, you can compete in an international tournament using authentic FIBA rosters and teams, including, the United States, Spain, France, and more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good basketball game The game is just another amazing development out of EA's workshop. The graphics were very good i dare say great (epespecially for xbox 360). The sound was very good almost like your actually watching a game. The only bad thing i can say is that making trades and signing players is sort of hard and if the cap room sucks then ur screwed. But overal i like it so it gets 9/10

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nba live 09!!! Graphics-the player models are pretty good except alot of the faces are bad like Dwight Howards face is terrible.The courts are also pretty good except for like 2.the lighting is great it makes the game look real. Gameplay-the gameplay is ok the players run to slow which makes it hard to fastbreak.The palyers pass to slow and that creates alot of turnovers.Also its to easy to get in the paint.Freethrows are to easy even with shaq.Features-the features in this game is great it has up to date rosters so when I play the rosters are how they are in the nba so like if a player is injured you cant use him.Game modes-the game modes are great like be a pro is where you take controll of any palyer in the nba like kobe bryant and you controll him for the whole game.Also they have the nba allstar weekend which has the three point shootout which is really fun and the dunk contest which is kind of hard.So nba live 09 doesnt have the best gameplay but you will still have lots of fun playing!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from its 50/50 the 365 is awesome and the be a pro and the season mode and slam dunk contest and stuff. but some of the bad things are FREE THROWS there way too easy even shaq makes them like there nothing so thats pretty fake. and people are making 3's from almost half court and doing dunks from the free throw line and some of the players cant even make a lay up when there wide open and pretty much if your going for a lay up and it hits the back board you are gonna miss cause thats just the way it is. but beyond playing online the game is fun. and if your gonna play ranked online dont choose a sucke team cause they will always choose one of the best teams in the game like lakers or cavs and just use kobhe or lebrpn the whole time. and defense is pretty hard i dont even know what kind of D too play cause its hard and some times if there on a fast break your players will move out the way w/o you doing anything. and i swear if your the away team you dont get no calls and you miss easy shots online. so i reccomend you dont play online if your new to the game.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth your cash This is the best basketball game I've ever played. I don't own the game but I play with my friend. NBA live 09 lets you download dynamic dna which lets you replay recent games. You can also choose a team and becoame head coach in Dynasty mode. The graphis are amazing and its really life like. The only thing that stinks is that you cant throw an aly-oop pass. But the overall gameplay is awesome. You can also trade players in Dynasty mode, get updates on simulated player injury and players can be found by your scout and be possibly drafted. Dynasty mode is awesome you can update your schedule and change your schedule. There is also all star weekend with 2 on 2 ,3 point contest, and dunking contest. I personaly think 2 on 2 is the best. Well the overall game is just great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its okay Well i bought live 09 about 3 weeks ago i already had 2k but 2k was getting boring so i bought live its like a 2 second delay you hit threes in your spot the game is great but not better than 2k so when i get bored of 1 play the other. Be a pro is very good your 1 person i played it 1 time and i won. If you want to decide get both but 2k first. LIve people are with a big body . But its ok for now. i wish it would stop cheating me don't get me wrong 2k cheat you to but not like when you play the computer in live. The full court shots are great it go in a lot. I need to find a team to play i as trying with the suns but it kept coming down to buzzer beating shot i hated it but when playing this game i noticed something it gets real at 1 point then start cheating. If I were you get both.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST B-BALL GAME OUT THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST BASKETBALL GAMES I HAVE EVER PLAYED, i played the demo back in october and i loved it and i bought it about a month later. then they start the season and the 365 updates get going. the reason this game is so good is because of all the new features and game modes. the gameplay is ok but it isn't that bad the game is also a little glitchy but glitches don't bother me unless they prevent me from playing the game so overall the game is really great. With the addition to nba live rewind and nba live 365 and all the other new features are all so good that i just had to give this game a 10/10.In my opinion it is way better than nba 2k9 which really has no defense. I also like the gameplay, because of the new signature playcalling, so now i can run the nuggets fast paced offense and the lakers triangle offense. Putting all of these new features together and you will get NBA LIVE 09, the bset basketball game out right now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Basketball Game Ever!!!! NBA Live 09 is the best of all the basketball games on the market today. The graphics are amazing, the gameplay is realistic, and the controls are great. I like the FIBA Tournament in this game. This really proves that basketball is a global game, and this feature is one of my favorites. The 3 point contest is better than ever, and the dunk contest is better than in years past. When I'm playing NBA Live 09, it feels like I'm right there in the crowd. That's how good the graphics are. The sound is excellent too. It's pretty cool to be able to hear the net when you make a 3 pointer. In my opinion, NBA Live 09 is the best basketball game ever made, and possibly one of the best sports games of all time. If you want a realistic basketball game, this is the one!!!!!! Can't wait for NBA Live 2010!!!!!!! Keep up the good work EA Sports!!!!!!
