Electronic Arts, the worlds largest video game maker, released the latest iteration of its popular basketball game franchise, NBA Live 07, for American consumers on Tuesday.

The title follows up on the company's previous NBA Live series, the worlds best selling basketball game, according to NPD Data.

With NBA player Tracy McGrady gracing its cover, the game was developed by EA Canada and features a number of advancements over the 2006 predecessor.
