December 18, 2007


Online Team Play Enables 5
Friends To Play On One Team Online Against 5 Rivals From Another Team

Electronic Arts has released a free
downloadable feature called Online Team Play for NBA LIVE 08 that will enable 10
people on 10 different consoles anywhere in the world to connect online to play
a single match. The new feature is automatically available for the PS3 computer
entertainment system when connected online. It will be available on the Xbox
360™ video game and entertainment system later this month.

In NBA LIVE 08, all 10 players on
the floor can now be controlled by individual users on 10 different consoles,
removing the use of artificial intelligence altogether. Player movement,
decision making and game outcome can now be completely dependant on how you play
as an online team, bringing you closer to a real life game of basketball than
ever before. This new game mode enables any number of players from one to five
on different consoles to connect and play online against another team of up to
five players on five different consoles. The CPU will take control of any
players not controlled by users.

NBA LIVE 08 is available at
retailers everywhere. The game’s official website is
