2k8 isn't that good in my opinion. Most of the role players are pretty useless while the stars can dunk on you once they step anywhere in the key. A player that works very well for me is Tay Prince. He is for some reason the best three point shooter on the Pistons while Hamilton and Sheed have totally forgotten how to shoot it beyond the arc.

Also, it's pretty frustrating to play as the Raptors because all they do is stand on the perimeter. When I get Bosh to set a pick for TJ, Bosh rolls to the 3 point line instead of the paint.

Well I've been playing for an hour, Cavs vs Spurs is my only option since I'm playing the demo and Lebron cant do crap while Drew Gooden is ripping down the boards and shooting 3's.
I don't understand what you guys are talking about

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.

Don't forget online costs money for the 360. I would agree that if you want to paly 2k8 and that's it just go with the xbox 360 as it is cheaper. And I don't know how big of a userbase you really need, Ps3 2k8 has almost 1000 people on, that's enough for me.

PS3 has crap for games. If they do come out with an awsome exclusive I'll prob. pick the 300 dollar ps3 up and have a blu ray player.

That depends on what type of games you like to play. COD4 is AWESOME to me. And Kane & Lynch is pretty good also. I just got it and haven't got a chance to really play because my son has been playing. Seems pretty cool though. And I also like Assassins Creed, and I can't wait for GTA4 to come out.

I'm really not into sports games so I really can't speak on 2kanything because I don't play those sort of games.

I just bought an Xbox 360 and loving it! I rented 2k8 and it had very nice sound and graphics. It was like watching a live game on TV. I couldn't imagine the PS3 being better. Plus, PS3 doesn't have BioShock and other Microsoft games.
