NBA fans will have to wait a bit more as X-Play moved the launch of NBA Street Online to anytime early 2009. No definite date was given yet by X-Play.
Earlier, an official press release state that NBA Street Online will launch November of 2008 but was delayed and no further news were heard. Not even the official website post any updates.
After digging the web, I found this article posted at Inquirer.net that gamers will have to wait more, “Filipino fans of Electronic Arts (EA) NBA game franchise may have to wait until the end of the year or even early 2009 to play NBA Street Online game, executives said.”
NBA STREET Online is a real-time online mid-session game (MSG) of EA’s phenomenally popular NBA franchise games series, featuring fast-paced street basketball action with today’s biggest NBA superstars, all in true-to-life detail.
Under the licence from EA, X-Play will provide marketing, community management, customer and technical support, and other valuable services as the operator of NBA STREET Online in the Philippines.
“This is a collaboration amongst giants to bring a monumental title to the Philippines. EA, as the top game developer worldwide, and X-Play, the joint venture between IPVG and GMA7, will launch the one of the biggest mid-session gaming titles to ever hit the country. With our large gaming base and mass media vehicles, this killer content will transform the industry,” said Enrique Y. Gonzalez, CEO of IPVG Corp.
