2K Adds To PS3 Launch Lineup
As we count down to the PS3 launch, 2K Sports has revealed a couple late additions to the software lineup for November 17. Both NBA 2K7 and NHL 2K7 are now set to arrive for the system's launch next week.
NBA 2K7 supports 1080p and utilizes the Sixaxis controller for a fresh new free-throw shooting system. NHL 2K7 also takes advantage of the Sixaxis' motion-sensing capability; it'll be used for goalie maneuvering and even checking other players. Both games will have online play available.
"With the power of the PlayStation 3 system, 2K Sports continues to make remarkable strides in the development of next-generation console games," said Greg Thomas, President of Visual Concepts. "The capabilities of the Cell processor have allowed us to deliver the next-generation quality of visuals and fluid animations that gamers expect. The SixAxis wireless controller will introduce an entirely new way for gamers to enjoy our titles and give our development teams new, exciting ideas to bring unique features to our sports titles."
We had heard about the possibility of motion-sensing in sports titles for the PS3, but this official announcement certainly clears things up.
