NBA 2001 ships for PS2.
EA recently announced the shipment of NBA Live 2001 for Sony's PlayStation 2 console. The title has the distinction of being the first basketball title on the neoteric platform. EA promises a much improved experience.
Among the plethora of new features offered by the title are tweaked post play features and new motion capture animations courtesy of Kevin Garnett. These additions to the franchise were implemented in hopes of creating a more authentic and genuine feel for the gamer.
"From the incredibly responsive gameplay to the life-like graphics, we believe that NBA LIVE 2001 for the PlayStation 2 is the most complete console basketball experience to date," commented executive producer Stan Chow. "Every feature we put into this game, from post moves to life-like player models, are there because we felt like it would bring users one step closer to being on the court. In making LIVE 2001 we wanted to push the capabilities of the Playstation 2, as well as deliver what users have come to expect over the years from the LIVE series. We believe we were successful in translating our ideas into a fun and realistic basketball experience."
