Default NBA 2k8 for playstation 2

I am thinking of buying this game. Haven't bought a bball game since 2k6. How does this game compare to that, how has the series improved, and overall, what are the pros/cons?

If you played 2k7, that's what 2k8 is. People nicknamed it NBA 2k7.5, because they really didn't change anything except update the roster, add a few more shoes. Graphics are the exact same. Commentary still sucks. No 24/7 mode, no blacktop dunk contest or 3pt shootout, no additions to association mode. I already have 2k7 for PS2 and I don't even play that, so I'm definitely not getting 2k8. It's only good for 360/PS3, because on PS2, hardly anything changed from 2k7. So if you have/played 2k7, that's pretty much what 2k8 is. But since you haven't played since 2k6, I guess it would be ok to get 2k8, but the 2k series is best on 360/PS3 either way. I really gotta upgrade from a PS2.

I still play Live 95, 96, 97, 98, and I swear to God I'd rather play those than NBA Live 06, 07 or 08 on PS2. No joke.

I got 2k8 for PS2 and to be honest I probably shouldn't have. Not because it's a bad game cuz it's really great, but because like Richie said it's almost literally the EXACT SAME GAME as 2k7. I'm getting a PS3 for Christmas so i probably should have just played 2k7 til then, but if the last game you have is 2k6 then yeah it probably wouldn't hurt to grab 2k8. It's only like $30 anyway

96 was probably my favorite since Bulls vs Lakers.

i remember having Vancouver and Toronto was such a cool thing to everyone. those were great games gameplay wise.

LIVE 08 is a huge upgrade compared to LIVE 07, but 2k7-8 was/is still ahead of it.

I technically DO have enough money to buy a 360............

I'll skip my car payment. That's the solution. The bank won't care. I think they take I.O.U's right? :)

deposit on an apt? Nah, I think I'll pass. Think I'll just keeping living at home with my parents forever :

but at least I would have a 360!
