i agree that 2k renders live obsolete. but they seriously need to make some improvements. this is supposed to be next gen. instead of just adding better graphics and animations they need to add in-depth features and new tendencies. teams don't play like themeselves in the game, the trade AI is retarded, the free agent process is useless. team chemistry system is worthless, and the "signature style" is really much nothing more than the bigger-name players having their own shooting manipulations.

new attributes that should be added:

shot selection
help defense
man defense
first step
streakiness
confidence
court vision

all these aspects of the game are missing and keep it from being a true simulation.

So who wants to bet on this? Live, despite the graphics, will be the worst game ever made next year?

One word to describe it: SICK

But can't let the love of my life fail me now. Come on LIVE, make it better.

Nash has got to be a better rated player and they better give LB some respect.

Wrong...That is NBA live 08. Why the hell do you think they are pics of Gilbert Arenas...He is the one announced to be on the cover of Live 2008.

Your information is wrong, the site you got that from is wrong. Sorry.

Thumbs up Re: NBA 2k8

SICK. . . i was pissed when people were saying those were Live pics, glad they were wrong. . Too bad Bron is on the cover though, they made him way too good in 2k7 i think and now he will be even better since they gave him the cover. .

another problem is whenver you have an open big man under the hoop and you pass him the ball he will curl out to the free throw line or something when he was wide open for a dunk. i always hate that. . .

cant wait though! 2k is best b-ball game by far!!

i played both nba live wasnt as bad as peopl.e say it to be. and in all reality 2k5 <nba live 05 2 years of them making a good basketball sim does not make all 2k series the ultimate Basketball game. Also if you play the NBA live Season you can actualy trade using salarie cap and its realistic to form a good team.

Some aspects of Live are good, but the game play is too unrealistic. In live 06 if you were a scorer you can literally scorer when ever you want no matter what the defense is doing. Live 07 I haven't played too much of but it has a lot of the same problems and glitches 06 had. Another example is when you go for a rebound or dunks people fly like 4 feet in the air(people like Yao Ming). The game is mostly arcade 2k is the best game available for simulation basketball.
