An update for the XBOX 360 version of NBA Live 08 called “Online Team Play” can be downloaded next time you put your NBA Live 08 disc in. The same update was released for the PlayStation 3 last November which allows 10 players to play on different consoles connected into a single game (similarly to FIFA 08’s “Be A Pro” Online mode).
The update includes:
• 1 vs. 1 up to 5 vs. 5 multiplayer (any combination within that range. E.g. 2 vs. 3)
• Gamers can now lock themselves into individual players or allow for player switching (only required to be locked if you have four active teammates)
• The CPU takes over any players not being manually controlled.
• Voice communication is available and is set up so you can only communicate with your teammates.
Will you be trying out this new online mode? Leave a comment with your thoughts.
