Default Worth buying PS3 just for NBA 2k8?

Was wondering If anybody could tell me If it would be worth buying a playstation 3 and buying NBA2k8? My best mate seems to think 2k8 is great in PS3 and really the only reason to buy It would be for PS3 when all of our mates want to play it e.t.c. So is it worth the price just to get the 2K8 game? Is it that good or would we be wasting our time?

Don't buy a console for one game, it's not worth it.

You have to examine each system to see which one has the games you want. Buying a system for one game is kind of silly. That's not a cheap investment.

One thing to remember is the 360 has a much larger installed user base, so it will be infinitely easier to get a game going online.

i think there is no need to buy a PS3 only for that game, it's not even exclusive for playstation.

Tell you what happened to me.

I live somewhere in the caribbean and the PS3 costs like 25% more than it is in the states. I have been playing NBA live since 95 but shifted to 2k on 2002. Been playing 2k ever since.

I was in San Diego and was adamant on getting the $299 ps3. I went to the gamestop downtown and they didn't have the $299 one. Only the $399. Then the fat guy over there went on saying why I should just save up my extra $100 and buy the 60gb one. Since I wasn't buying what he said I just wnet back to the hotel.

I did some research on the two ps3's and after 3 hours of thinking I decided to buy thr $399 one. I went to the nearest gamestop and they didn't have any ps3s in stock.

The next day I went to a Sony store and they both had the $299 and $399 one. I was about to buy the $399 but they did not have nba 2k8.

I ended up buying nothing at all.

Yesterday I was in Miami and they didn't have any Wiis.

Is 2k8 the best one? I've got a PS3 and I am getting one of the 3 games for christmas, I've heard NBA 08 is the best cause of the internet play and that NBA Live 08 has better gameplay but doesn't have internet play.
I haven't heard much about the 2k8, but I'm downloading the new PS3 update
and hoping that some of those games have a free demo.

I have 2k8 for the PS3 and it is one of my favorite basketball games ever. I have been playing basketball video games since the acclaimed Lakers vs Celtics came out on Sega. 2k8 is by far, the best basketball game I have played. I used to play NBA Live up until around 2000 or 2001 when the 2k series took over as the best basketball game on the market. This years combines great gameplay, realistic player tendencies, amazing graphics and a decent franchise interface. I would like to see them work on the franchise piece of the game a bit more, but the gameplay is what keeps me coming back.

I havent played NBA 08, but have played Live 08 and I prefer 2k8 by far.

Thanks for making this an easier choice for me

But are there any mini games or something other than just season/dynasty mode?
