NBA 2K8 hands down is a far better game. i own both, got some friends that only play one or the other so i get both, but NBA 2K8 is better in every aspect imaginable!

Live 08 is just too arcade like for me. Hot spots? Go-to moves?

I'm all for realism and good franchise modes, which leads you to NBA 2K8

Not that I'm arguing with you about NBA 2k8 being way better then NBA Live.. but:

2k8 does have "hot spots" so to speak. Those bars on your players when you control them is a hot spot wannabe version. And go-to moves? Isn't that like Isomotion?

NBA 2k8 is the best sim realism out there, but if you want the VERY best basketball universal experience, a PATCHED version of College Hoops 2k8 is the best from what I've read. Unpatched? Forget about it, buy NBA 2k8.

in 2k8 when a player is in a hotspot the controller rumbles. go into practice, run around with some shooters and you will find areas on the floor that make the controller rumble.

I'm just praying EA doesn't buy up the NBA rights the way they did NCAA and NFL.
