NBA 2K8 Ships
Things are getting nasty in the virtual world of basketball.
NBA Live 08, NBA 08, and NBA 2K8 have all shipped on the same
date. Furthermore, all three games are great, and that's a
wonderful thing for all gamers. 2K Sports has issued an official
line noting the release of NBA 2K8 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox
360, and even on the PlayStation 2. Highlighted are some of the
new features to be found in NBA 2K8:
Sprite Slam Dunk Contest: Rock the house 2K style with gravity-defying jams as gamers perform from over 300 dunk variations! Up to four players can play to raise the competition level and even compete online. Bobbito Garcia appears as the emcee of the contest.
All-New Off-Ball Control: The player isnt just controlling the ballhandler anymore. Now on offense, users can switch off to other players to call for alley-oops, jostle for post-position, set screens, and more.
Lock-On D: All-new defensive controls give users more control of their player than ever before. Use the right analog to play tighter defense on the ballhandler and run advanced defensive sets.
The Association: Allows users to run their franchise by identifying player roles, balancing playing time, and keeping team morale up. The Hoopcast Simulator makes simulating games exciting, while SimCentral centralizes all necessary information for real-time stats, standings, injuries, and much more.
Next Gen Movement Technology: With improved Signature Style technology, player movement has never looked this lifelike! Body actions and movements will react naturally to factors of speed, collisions and momentum, bringing the game to life like never before.
Music: NBA 2K8 features three exclusive original tracks from the legendary J Dilla with Common, Madlib and Q-Tip with Talib Kweli providing vocals on their respective songs. Rounding out the soundtrack are offerings from Quasimoto, Percee P, Run-DMC, Devo, Cut Chemist, Fishbone, Stone Roses and many more.
The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of NBA 2K8 will retail at full cost of 59.99, but the PS2 version will run $29.99
