This year it's about five-on-five basketball. Um, what?
Instead of focusing on some superstar freestyle highlight reel above the rim Eye Toy control feature that no one will ever use, EA has wisely decided that NBA Live 08 is going to be all about five-on-five basketball.
So EA broke down the game of basketball into the basic categories of offense, defense, shooting, passing, dribbling and said: "Let's try and make them good this year." We recently visited EA Canada in Vancouver and got our eyes on NBA Live 08 and came away impressed.
