The file size for NBA Live 16 has now been revealed for Xbox One. Make sure you have some extra room if you want to play it.
The official Xbox Marketplace website has listed the game already. The file size is only 23.31GB, although this falls in line with many other EA Sports games. It’s likely the game has a similar size on PS4 as well.
The file size is roughly half of that of 2K’s NBA 2K games. Both NBA 2K14 and NBA 2K15 were over 40GB. This might be an indication that NBA Live 16 will not have as much content judging by the file size.
Although EA Sports is promising NBA Live 16 has made several improvements over its past offerings. They have made the graphics shinier than before and changes have been made to the animation and gameplay.
It will be interesting to see which games fans will pick up this September. Both NBA Live 16 and NBA 2K16 come out on September 29th, 2015. Fans have preferred the 2K games in recent years though as the NBA Live series has been needing to catch up.
Hopefully the online servers for both games hold up this year though. NBA 2K15’s servers weren’t up when it came out last October.
