    Peter Moore just confirmed NBA Elite 11's delay on his blog:


    Quote:





    Over the past three years, EA SPORTS development teams have had a laser focus on creating titles packed with innovation and unsurpassed quality. The acclaim from fans and critics on most of our titles the past few years makes us proud and it also motivates us to keep getting better.

    This year, we set extremely ambitious goals for our new franchise, NBA ELITE. We are creating a game that will introduce several breakthrough features that have been missing from the basketball genre. Unfortunately, NBA ELITE 11 is not yet ready and we have made a decision to delay next month’s launch. We are going to keep working until we’re certain we can deliver a breakthrough basketball experience.

    VERY SMART MOVE AND

    Yes the news is true. NBA ELITE 11 has been delayed. When there is additional information to share with you guys I will be sure to do so. For now it's as the blog says, the game has been delayed.

    NBA JAM for the Wii will still come out on October 5th and now NBA JAM will be released for PS3 and 360 as standalone versions.


    JAM IS COMING OUT ALONE YES

    For NBA LIVE 10 players, we will continue to offer free content and services throughout the 2010-11 season. We will start with a new roster update so you get all the players for the new season, free of charge. We will also provide free Dynamic DNA updates, daily, for the entire season. That’s a full season of basketball with new rosters and updates, free.

    Wow.....that's not good. But I guess if there are enough bugs to warrant pushing it back a month...then it's better to push it out then put out a bug filled product ( see NBA2k10 in the 1st month of release last year ).

    Are you sure?


    Peter Moore's blog has a new entry up detailing the decision to delay NBA Elite 11 with no timetable for a release.

    This year, we set extremely ambitious goals for our new franchise, NBA ELITE. We are creating a game that will introduce several breakthrough features that have been missing from the basketball genre. Unfortunately, NBA ELITE 11 is not yet ready and we have made a decision to delay next month’s launch.

    He goes on to mention that NBA Live 10 will be getting free Daily DNA updates all season, for free, to hold EA basketball gamers over.

    Read the blog here and comment on this surprising news here in the forums.

    I'm stunned after so many years of these games coming out relatively "like clockwork". It's weird to see one of them delayed by months, but this game certainly needed it.

    As someone who was bummed I was going to miss out on NBA Jam after deciding to cancel my pre-order of Elite, that part of it sounds great to me. I'll probably buy NBA Jam, and between it and 2K11, I think I'll have plenty of current NBA ball in my life.

    This had to have been years ago, but back when I played b-ball video games I remember Live getting pushed back one year.

    But yeah, it is strange to see it happen. Just from what I hear (which is mostly from these forums) it sounds like this game needed it.

    yes it is a smart move by ea the game is really bad unplayable to me. I also belive it will be the full version of Jam not just 3 modes. I am also happy they will update live too.

    This is the best news I've heard all week.

    The idea of updating live 10 rosters is also really cool on their part.

    So why should these people buy Elite then?

    This signals the death knell for EA's NBA franchise IMO. They are close to admitting defeat.

    Not in the least.

    This is purely a plan to really try to make NBA Elite as good as possible. It doesn't matter when it's released, if it's of very good quality it'll still get bought.

    Either way, the extra work on this version of NBA Elite will be just as much about this version as the next. So it doesn't really effect EA's publishing plans. These were things they were going to have to fix anyway. They just didn't want to release such a horrid first version of Elite, that nobody ever looks in it's direction again. It's all about not turning away potential future customers.

    I think the idea is now to keep developing the game as a beta version of elite 2012, and release it at a cheaper price.

    ya and elite wont be released for a year most likely it is so hard to rebulid a game from scratch in 1 yr even harder on a new engine. so i expect the game to release oct 5 2011. Thats why they will be doing the live stuff

    With sports games though, so much is about market share, just putting out a new product to bring your customers back. Yes, elite/live has sucked for a while, but I bet most average NBA fans still buy it just because it's made by EA, now they have a year where they won't be around? A lot of people who were Live/Elite players are going to switch. They are going to need something BIG to follow up with to get them back.

    They already needed something big anyway. That's why they gutted the entire control system and game mechanics.

    Nothing changes, really. It's a good move honestly. Not grabbing for the quick buck at the expense of the consumer wins respect in my book anyway.

    they should just wait till next yr if they want people to come back to the brand. This shows EA is commited to making a good game.

    Sure, I can understand what they're doing, but I think it will hurt them. We'll see what happens. Very interested to see what their big hook will be.

    The hook this year has to be a cheaper price tag. I'd go as far as to release it free as a download, like a beta for next year's game.

    Or maybe when the game arrives on your doorstep the next day, it's nothing but a empty box with a note inside reading "April Fools!"
