The scan process only lasts about 45 seconds, but you need the right lighting to have a successful scan. It took me 10 scans before the process completed, but the final results were solid. That was my biggest gripe in NBA Live My likeness was accurate, but my skin tone was not.
Thankfully, the app has seen a few tweaks.
You can download the app for Android or Apple devices. It's a very nice layer to add on this concept and the success of the mode will rely on the fan engagement online in the various multiplayer features.
NBA Live 18 doesn't have a concrete release date, but according to a recent press release announcing the inclusion of the WNBA license, the full game will release in September. Follow me on Twitter.
