There we go. They have that for the 360 (I think), but they don't have that for the PS3. I hope they add it in.

2k is better but I have to admit that the Live 09 being updated everyday is freakin sweet. I won't get Live but I do wish 2k9 had it.

NBA Live will be better this year. The demo on IGN looks insane. Better graphics, same camera view as 2k, and the DNA just sets it off.

nba live has tendancy to release good features and screw them up

all star weekend
superstars
"total control" crossovers

this makes me think that the dna isnt going to work very well

Dirty Dirk41
07-18-2008, 07:21 PM
the dna is all Live has going for it..the gameplay looks the same as it had been. 2k9 will be a much better game

Live's online play is going to be better, along with the DNA thing. IDK I'm just going to play both demos and see which one is better.

I been tryin' to work for 2k for awhile now...I had a interview with EA few months ago but didn't get the job!:( ...but I'm going to apply for 2k again! hope I get a call back & a interview...I love 2k, I wish they still had the rights to football because that game was on the way up!

they both have special things but 2k is better

ONly thing i could wish from 2k is more roster updates...theyre realy slow with those

rico
07-18-2008, 10:44 PM
cant wait..

hope there are more features than just that..

like: spectator mode for lg games/online games so people can watch their friends play if they want and be able to talk on headsets etc..

more updates - day of trades happen instead of waiting forever

save online settings for games so every game you dont have to wait for the guy to go into settings turn stuff off switch defensive/offensive plays etc.. that gets annoying.

hope they revert the halftime thing back to 2k7s instead of 2k8s i liked that better.

i can think of a lot of other things but i just woke up and am tired heh.

Sweet. I'm glad they are improving the crowd, graphics, etc.

Someone told me that they would use Xbox Live Vision for this game, but I guess not.

* NBA 2K online features: 2K Sports' industry leading online service gets all-new features including 5-on-5 Multiplayer mode with Total Team Control and a new ranking system (from Bench Warmer to Rookie to Pro to Superstar), that shows you how to match up against your opponents.

Does the new 5/5 multiplayer mean there's a total of 10 players, a gamer for each player? If that's true, that'll be awesome!
