Press the jump button to see the newly released NBA 2K8 screenshots from Gamespot. Slam Dunk contest pictures included.
I've never been a big sports player (as far as video games) but i might have to give this a whirl. Looks fun, Im just waiting for the fanboys to comment on the pics being that from a ps3 and not an xbox 360. You watch they'll make it into one of those disputes. lol
pfft I'll wait for Live...
Live will never catch up... NBA08 and Live can battle it out, but nothing is touching 2K
2k is a far superior series than live
I dunno I always preferred live personally though...that's just me
looking damn nice...
This is just SICK!!! And I mean that in a good way!
always makes the better Basketball Game. Looks good. As well as All_Pro.
I dig All-Pro's animations and the little scenes these bring the game to life.
wow this makes NBA 08's graphics look sooooooo last gen. Guess Sony has been neglecting their sports franchise, but competition can only be a good thing!!
Ever since I played NBA live 05 in 05 after playing that series over my cousins' house for years then purchasing NBA 2K5 for my xbox i never wanted to play an EA-made basketball game unless they changed it or it is college basketball (for some reason i like EA's college basketball sim). everthing is weird in Live to me the shooting animation is weird, running animations, and the fairly dark stadiums are pretty unrealistic. ever since 2K5 i've been faithful to that basketball series because it's truly more realistic in terms of the physics and player models (the skinniness of Live NBA players kill me) and the net animation looks like dead weight
Can't wait to get my hands on this,especially the slam dunk contest..
The character models don't even look like the real players. Live still has the 1up in terms of character model accuracy. Baron Davis looks like Baron Davis, but i almost thought Devin Harris got traded to the hornets and then I realized it's freaking Chris Paul!
Well I admit this is looking a little weird. to me it seems like all of the players have been to a fountain of youth because they seem to look hella young like the developers tried to make them look cute or somethin. Now Live might have better facial rendering that looks closer to the player, but the players look skinny for some reason, at least to me
I love NBA2k7, the gameplay just feels right and doesn't feel gimmicky *cough* Live *cough* and the animations are beautiful. EA lost me at NBA live 06. Trust me, anyone doubting 2K sports, you need to go play NBA 2K7. It seems like they really enjoy making games as the attention to detail is staggering (signature shots anyone?) And now with a dunk contest thrown in, I'm very happy!
Yeah my only prob with 2k7 was the graphics and the lack of a face capture via a camera. But it looks like those may have been fixed. Well maybe not the face capture.
