News: Dwayne Wade and Donovan McNabb get the call.
EA has announced two more cover athletes for their fall slate of sports titles as Dwayne Wade highlights NBA Live 06 and Donovan McNabb takes the snap for Madden NFL 06.
EA has also announced platforms for both titles with NBA Live 06 coming to the PS2, Xbox, GC and PSP while Madden NFL 06 is landing on the Xbox, PS2, GC, DS and GBA. Do you hear that? The PSone is officially done. No Madden for you!
No new details on Madden emerged, but we know this about NBA Live 06:
NBA LIVE 06 builds upon the depth and authenticity that the NBA LIVE franchise has delivered for more than a decade and that made last year the best-selling version in the history of the series. With advancements in gameplay and enhanced player graphics, the sport of basketball is elevated to a whole new level in NBA LIVE 06 with the superstars of the game looking and playing more like their real-life counterparts than ever before. Players can feel the emotion and intensity of the complete basketball experience with an up-tempo, fast-break, and physical brand of basketball that yields improved play in the transition game and real-life collisions in the paint.
Madden NFL 06 will ship in August as always and NBA Live 06 will take it to the hole in the fall.
