i got 2k8 last year and im still rocking the shit out of it, there is a 80 chance i keep it 2k.



The only weird thing is that in my 360 lebron never appear wearing his black and red kicks, ... they put him wearing genetic all black shoes wich is boring. Then i go and take the game to my friend house and he picked the cavs and then i see lebron rocking the black and red kicks and im like wtf. could it be a glitch?


Peace!

I find these yearly updates a bit of a rip off to be honest. I usually skip at least every other one or more unless they do something revolutionary to the game.

I haven't played a basketball game in ages though, so I'll have to wait and see which one of these looks best.

Last basketball game I bought was NBA inside drive 2002 which was a good game.

I did play the demo's for Live and 2k8 and to me 2k8 was better.

There'll probably be demo's for them so we'll see which is better this year.

2k is 10x better than live, tho' live is improving last couple of years!! But I just played few timez both games with my friend, so I'm not relevant to judge!!

P.E.A.C.E.

LOL@ the late reply for this.. But yea you usually have to restart the game, but in most cases it loads the shoes wrong if you tried to edit either kobe or leborn in the character edit menu.. For so DUMB reason it messes with the shoes.. :sighs: You download the patch for 2k8?

I'll be picking up 2K until EA buys out the NBA franchise like they did the NFL. Competition isn't fun when your company is too lazy to do anything more than shiny graphics each year, is it EA?

NBA 2K9 is sick! 5 on 5 is rediculous. Everybody needs to cop that and see me online. 2K does it again.

I guess I'm in the minority here. But, it's more based off of loyality than anything else. I went on ahead and copped Live. Reason being is I've had ever EA Sports Basketball game since Jordan Vs. Bird and like they say, sometimes change is hard.

I never in my considered making the switch from Live to 2k, but I almost did this year just based off the census on every website I go to that states 2k sh*ts on live as well as being extremely dissappointed in last years installment but I stayed loyal. Kinda like how we all do with the Clan. Anyways, the game is pretty ill too me and it's not as arcade like as it once was in the past. It's more of a half court game and not a up and down dunkfest that it's been in previous years. Plus, with alot of added features, it's the best Live I've ever encountered. I'm happy with it.

Here are my problems with it if I need to be critic for a second.

1. Automatic Replays are choppy and have serious lag issues. I hope they slide us an update for that (PS3 version)
2. Allan Houston is invisible. Yes, I said INVISIBLE. He's in the game as a free agent, I put him on the knicks and he's invisible. Like, you can't see him, lol. So when you take a shot with him or do anything, the balls just looks like it's moving itself. It's extremely hilarious, but not funny when it's time to get down for the get down for real.

3. No tip dunks or maybe, I just haven't been able to do or see one yet?

4. No hop step, they took it out the game for whatever reason I don't know.

That's it so far, I'll report back later after I play some more.

Copped 2K9 today.

It's slower than I thought it would be. But I have only played 1 game yet so I'll get used to it I think.

People with a PS3, add me Rama-PSN.

Much better game now. :D
