I think they make guys for 360 better than Ps3, but Ps3 has free online.

xbox 360 easily i have 2k8 and live for both systems the only good thing about having it on ps3 is if you got HD and I don't got HD just tried it on my friends tv but i'd rather have it on xbox.

on the ps3 the graphics are a "little" better and there are less glitches
on the 360 the coloring is brighter and the online play is better

i play the 360 version alot more so i think its better but the ps3 version is still great

if you have an hd tv, especially a 1080p, go for the xbox 360 elite. it costs a little more but the graphics and high definition are well worth it. i have it on a 1080p samsung tv and it is something else.

I'm getting the PS3 in September cause the price is gonna drop $100 so it costs $400. Online is free, but most of my friends have the 360 and want me to get it too. The thing is that your not going to play with millions of ppl the same time so I don't think having so many people on matters.

The only reason i am getting the PS3 is cause my cousin has it and he buys all the games so i can borrow them from him.:D

The cool thing coming out for PS3 is that they are making God of War 3 and you can play with 256 ppl in one game! Thats amazing and i am sure God of War 3 is PS3 exclusive. Also you can do more with the PS3 because it is really powerful. Get PS3, and you also get a Blu Ray player:)

Alittle of topic but i hope i helped.

So what NBA game do you guys recommend? I have a plasma 1080i does that help? and I like the Idea of getting blue ray and a system in one!

it seems like there's just as many people who says the PS3 is better as the people who says the 360 is better. man this is going to be a hard decision.


can i mod at a poll to my thread to help me make my decision? :D

more people recommand the 2k series over the Live series despite the fact that live series has more features on it because the 2k series have better, more realistic game play in addition to more accurate player ratings. plus it's more challenging.

so to break it down...

Live = arcade

2k = simulation

depends on what you perfer.

NBA 2K8 on 360 ftw!!!

Especially if you want to play online. Sony's network is nowhere near the quality of XBOX Live, and the number of users is staggering.

I think in the long run, PS3 will come out with more games and have a longer life span then the Xbox. If you really want the Xbox wait a while cause they are making a new model that will be the 60 gig.

You can already do that with NBA Live 08 with a PS3.

If you have a 1080i TV, i say get the PS3 if you like movies, cause Blu Ray kicks ***. The 360 is like the regular Xbox with better graphics, but the PS3 has gotten some new technology put into it...Its hard to explain.

I had systems last year and i rented the games for each. I enjoyed nba live on ps3 the most over all, however in the 2k games the 360 was much better. But I felt the best was live for ps3, thats the one i went out an got

I agree with this for years past, but last year it seemed like they flipped. 2k8 you basically held the ball and shot, but in LIVE the cpu players would come off screens and post up. It felt like LIVE 08 was modeled from 2K7 and 2K8 was trying to be LIVE 07. Weird, just my opinion

As a whole PS3 has better hardware and will be better in the long run. I just recently switched to it.

MGS4 was worth it :D

The decision betweenthe games is easy. 2K has far surpassed Live at this point. I used to be a huge live fan but the last 2 years haved sucked.

AS for the systems. I have both PS3 and XBox 360 and I really prefer the 360

X-box 360 game play is better ...way more people online....and way less connection problems.....for online play it's not a question.....and that's a huge part in sports games

Live has moer people but PS3 is cheaper. If you got the cash, I'd suggest 360.

so i went with the 360 because i want to play NOW...i don't want to wait a year from now for the PS3 to catch up. maybe i'll save up money to buy the PS3 once the PS3 is better than the 360.



but yeeea....for someone who has been playing the playstation for years (i had the first playstation and the PS2), it's hard for me to transition to the Xbox...the controller is so weird :( i find myself pressing the wrong buttons a lot when i was playing NBA 2k8 thinking that i'm still using the playstation controller because i'm just so use to it....it just comes so natural for me. oh well...i'm sure i'll be fine in about a week.


but yeeea...who has NBA 2k8 on the 360? anyone want to create a league? :D

Yeah, the 360 was the better choice right now. You'll get used to the controller after a while. I think the 360 controller is easily the best controller out of the 3 consoles.

i have a 1080p tv and a 360 and ps3 i have to say that there is little graphical difference and most of the time i find the better graphics are on the 360

and if you have a 1080p tv and want to buy a 360 buy the elite system the hdmi port makes a lot of difference in graphics

muahaha...i just one my first game in 2k8 on xbox :cool: almost use to the controls now. the biggest problem i'm having is the turbo/pass icon button. The pass icon button is the turbo button is PS2 so a lot of times, when i go for fast breaks or drives...i pass instead of dunking on accident :whistle:
