Electronic Arts has decided not to pursue its plan to port NBA Live 07 to PlayStation 3, deciding instead to focus on the upcoming next-generation version of NBA Street.
That's according to EA Canada PR Manager David Tinson, who told IGN that the developer is "concentrating [its] efforts on creating a spectacular NBA Street: Homecourt". That title is due out on PS3 and 360 "early next year", he added.
In other words, basketball fans will have to wait until the release of NBA Live 08 before the series takes its PS3 bow.
That comes as a bit of a surprise, not least because Sony actually had EA demonstrate the game during its E3 2006 press conference, where Live was one of the few games shown off in playable demo form.
Not that the PS3 will suffer from a dearth of EA titles at launch, with Fight Night Round 3, Need For Speed Carbon, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 and of course Madden NFL 07 down for release in the US on 17th November.
