If you have a PS Plus membership and are looking for something sporty (sportish? sports like? We didn’t play. We just gave water to those that did) to play, do we have good news for you. There is a demo for NBA Live for you to download right now, and it includes the game’s story mode prologue, named The Rise.
If you decide to pre-order the game from the PSN Store, you can save 33% off of the $59.99 (US) price, making it $40.19. That seems like a big incentive, but you should really shop other retailers first. We found Gamestop goes just a bit lower at $39.99 (US). It may be worth the $.20 not to leave the house though. We do hope the idea of discounting a game by 33% if you pre-order becomes the norm, but we will not be holding our breath.
If you do love what you see, any progress in the demo will carry over to the full game, so you will be able to hit the court running when NBA Live 18 releases on September 15th.
We sometimes link to online retail stores. If you buy something from our links, we may make a small commission which goes towards keeping the lights on and coffee in the pot.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
