Newsbits: October 4 – New TV apps edition
- There was no XBLA game this Wednesday. Major Nelson, director of Xbox LIVE tweeted that it was because NBA Live 13 did not get released (and was in fact canned, according to EA). Was it going to be an XBLA game? Joystiq contacted EA, but got a simple “No Comment” response.
