I think you're lying.

well maybe but there are a lot of places that sometimes break the street date. and a lot of people who I know have the game

He's not lying. This stuff happens all the time. Stores preorder games, and sell them before the release date. I bought SmackDown Vs. RAW 2006 a week before it came out a couple years ago...

Anywho, I'm still getting NBA LIVE '08 next week.

Anybody else get the game, yet? What do you guys
think of it?

Also, does anyone know if Live 08 is out yet?


hey do the hawks have the new unifroms and new home court design???

Some stores have it exclusively. LBJ 4 MVP is telling the truth. People all over the 2k Sports forum have it and have posted tons of pictures.

1.
Passing - 77
Mid Range - 84
3 point - 77
Speed - 97
Ball Handling - 99

2. It's nothing special. It's a little hard to get used to, but when you figure it out its quite easy. There is a wide variety of dunks and props that you can use, but most of the dunks are quite unrealistic such as a windmills over cars...etc. It works by flicking the right stick in one direction, then quickly in another, then you have to press the right trigger for the timing of the finish. It's nothing that im too interested in.

If you want to prove it, you can post your gamercard, which will show your most recently played games. But you don't need to prove anything to me. I know lots of people already have the game. I checked out a few stores myself, but nobody had it for sale yet. Target was selling Live already yesterday, but I'm not buying that one. They both officially come out on Tuesday, so I'm just going to quit worrying about it until then.
