I'm going to see if BestBuy has it in a little while. Not sweating it though. I'll probably only keep NBA 2K8 until November when I can trade it for College Hoops 2K8 anyway.

how many sneaker options are there? I bet not nearly as many as Live.

Live > 2k

I don't know man. I've bought 2k4,5,6, and 7, and I think I'm kinda sick of these basketball games. Maybe in the future, I'll buy like NBA 2k10 or Live 10. LOL. But now, I'm kinda done.:sleeping

Re: NBA 2k8 anything about the game
 
my only gripe is the touchy iso system. i juke and get the defender off guard and when i go to get by them i stall. maybe i just need a bit of practice. dunks seem harsher and i like when both announcers go "oh!!" on the good ones. drew a charge and the opposing player helped my player up, that was a cool animation.

i went to my local walmart (about 2 minutes away) and they didn't have it. i went home and called them to make sure and the lady said she's got a copy in her hand right now. went back and the dude said no. i had called the other wally world way on the east side of town. drove there 2am and got it.

All I know is that I played the demos of both Live and 2K8, and I by far preferred Live. I am waiting for some reviews of both to get online before I make my final decision.

Yes, because sneakers are the most important aspects of the game.

What happened to making up your own decisions? It's almost kind of sad that you have to rely on someone else's opinion and not your own. If you prefer Live, then get Live. Is a review really going to make you change a decision you already made?

Some random facts I've dug up about the PS2 version for any of you that care:

- Raptors don't have their new home jerseys
- Carmelo lost his signature shot and only has a normal jumper now, for some reason
- Apparently many new sig shots have been added
- There are now signature dunks
- No roles in Association mode
- No dunk contest
- No 3 point contest
- No 2k7
- No Hot Zones
- Iverson's stupid sig shot is still there
- Nash still has long hair
- The gameplay pretty much hasn't changed at all
- AI is a bit smarter
- Mike Miller now has long hair
- Association mode hasn't changed, pretty much at all
- Create a player is still terrible
- Wade still has generic shoes, like the 360 version (2k doesn't have a license with Converse to use the shoe, same with Bosh, etc)
- Can't change a bunch of player shoes
- Can't change player positions


Makes me be ashamed to be a PS2 owner.
