Does NBA Live have a future as a franchise? That's the question you can't help but ask . EA has announced that they are committed to consoles but their main focus with the Live series will be on developing a mobile gaming experience. While the mobile space has grown quite a lot -- there isn't much of a path forward for more intensive simulation sports games outside of text simulations. This raises the obvious question: Does NBA Live even have a future as a major AAA sports gaming franchise?
