Kotaku confirms that EA will change the name of their once beloved Live franchise to Elite. So take note, this year’s NBA Live will be referred to as NBA Elite ’11. “What is the new name of EA Sports’ NBA franchise?” appeared EA’s NBA Live Facebook Page on Wedensday May 26th, with EA putting out the following statement:

“We knew it was time to leave the past behind. We have exciting and significant changes coming to our NBA game this year that will usher in the future of basketball videogames. We look forward to releasing information on exactly how we’ll be doing that over the next few months.”

Did they not learn from the early 90’s when they switched the Vs. series to Showdown?
