EA Sports just released the first screenshots of "NBA Live 13," and this can't be denied: the game looks good. The game's designers went to great lengths to ensure each player looks identical to his real-life counterpart, from his hair to his shoes to his tattoos.

Will the gameplay match the look of EA Sports' first basketball endeavor since "NBA Live 10"? Only time will tell, as the game won't be playable this week at the E3 Conference.

For now, enjoy the screenshots. Photo Gallery
