NCAA Final Four 2004 In Stores

Sony has announced that NCAA Final Four 2004 is now available in stores. Fronted by NABC National Player of the Year and All-American Kansas star Nick Collison, NCAA Final Four 2004 is highlighted by brand new gameplay and revived artificial intelligence. Gamers can perform spin moves, drop steps and daze defenders with behind-the-back and crossover dribbling by using the right analog stick, bringing tighter player control than ever before in college hoops gaming. Players can have their own jam session with more than 30 new dunks, including tomahawk jams and reverse slams. Icons mark which player is the best shooter, quickest runner or star player for each of the 303 IA college teams, from conferences like the Big East, the ACC and the SEC. Furthering college basketball realism, upgraded artificial intelligence automatically double teams star players and provides additional defensive support when necessary.

"NCAA Final Four 2004 captures the unparalleled spirit and realism of college basketball," said Ami Blaire, director, of product marketing, for Sony Computer Entertainment America. "Combining a redesigned graphics engine with all new and superior online technology, NCAA Final Four 2004 is the most authentic and exciting college basketball game on PlayStation 2."

The popular Dynasty Mode returns in NCAA Final Four 2004, allowing gamers to coach their favorite college team over several seasons, recruiting freshmen and replacing graduating seniors, in an attempt to build a college basketball powerhouse that claims the ultimate prize, a National Championship. Another play option, Career Mode, is an opportunity to start out as an assistant coach at a small school and work up the career ladder to head coach at a major college program. Players can sharpen their three-point shot or two-handed jams in Practice Mode, play a full season or skip to the Big Dance(TM) in Tournament Mode. Various play options, along with new arenas, mascots, coaches and fights songs, bring the energy and feel of college basketball to your home like never before.

Furthermore, for the first time in franchise history, NCAA Final Four 2004 is online. Players can gather at, a central lobby that provides a plethora of online features for college basketball fans. Challenge friends and rivals from across the country, represent your favorite college hoops program, enter or set up user tournaments, check out message boards, user mail, buddy lists, and large-scale stat tracking. A real-time sports ticker scrolls the current scores so players never miss a beat.
