PS3 version of ´NBA Live 07´ canned

Electronic Arts has canned the PS3 version of ´NBA Live 07´, as IGN reports.

It´s perhaps not too surprising, since IGN lists another three NBA titles as confirmed for the console:

* ´NBA '07´ by SCEA (launch)
* ´NBA 2K7 by 2K Sports (launch)
* ´NBA Street Homecourt by Electronic Arts (Q2 2007)

Still, that very game was an integral part of Sony´s pre-E3 show, showcasing the console´s power, as the article remarks:

Though PS3-specific features or fixes for the PlayStation 3 edition of NBA Live 07 were never announced, the game was used to demonstrate what EA Sports could do with the system's hardware during Sony's onstage presentation prior to E3. Specifically, the demo focused on NBA Live's "Procedural Awareness Technology" and how that would translate into realistic on-court reactions.

Here is the segment in full:

Also, there has been even more bad news for Sony´s PS3 recently, with THQ being cautious about PS3 sales and favouring Wii and EA doubting Sony´s production schedule.

EDIT Even more bad news for Sony. Games Industry has learned that both ´Sonic the Hedgehog´ and ´The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion´ will miss the console´s launch and will be available in December and Q1 2007, respectively.

Further, Phil Harrison refused to confirm that the console will be ready to launch in Europe in March, speaking to Three Speech:

Given that all of our previous statements about launching in Europe simultaneously with the US and Japan turned out not to be the case, I would not like to make any definitive statements on that.

The segment, to me, seems a bit assinine. Yeah, it looks good, but it attributes things to the PS3 that are the result of hard work by artists and animators, rather than due to the vaunted power of the cell processor. In fact, the only things they have going that could possibly justify the power in the machine are graphical.

I know it was software still in development, but the movement of the players once they hit the court was still very jerky. It was as if it had been edited with half a second taken out here and there.

I fdont think the software delay's matter at all. Sony will be trying hard to meet demand through the rest of this year so a lsight delay wont affect anything really.
