CONNECTED FRANCHISE - Fixed an issue where some players from an Imported Draft Class would not have facemasks.
Originally hyped as a ground-breaking feature in a June 18th blog post, the main addition to NBA Live 09 was NBA Live 365, daily roster updates that utilised data from Synergy Sports in an effort to make players perform like their real life counterparts throughout the 2008/2009 NBA season.
NBA Live 09 (also known as NBA Live 2009 or Live 09 and stylised as NBA LIVE 09) is the fifteenth instalment in the NBA Live series, released in North American stores October 7th, 2008.
It is the first game since NBA Live 2002 not to be released for the PC platform but is available for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 2, Playstation Portable and Nintendo Wii.
On June 25th, Tony Parker was announced as the cover player for the North American version.
Pau Gasol appears on the Spanish cover, Andrea Bargnani appears on the Italian cover and for the first time the United Kingdom received a regional cover, featuring Luol Deng.
