After playing both games last year i was very impressed with the NBA 2k9however this year with all the updates in both games im not sure which one i should purchase. I have been a fan of 2k for a long time but am maybe leaning more towards the live this year.

My question for you is what game are you going to buy and which one do you think will ulitmaltely be better than the other?

Also what changes would you like to see in each game

For me i would like to see

-Commentators should be more realistic. That being making jokes,talking about player streaks,upcoming events,standings,rumors etc.

-Realistic drafts( I want to draft John Wall next year for example)

-In dynasty there should be players who can get fined for showing up late to practice,not wanting to play for your team(asking for trade) and maybe fined for bad behavior off the court.

- Another thing may be a more realistic crowd, say if your getting blown out at home the fans start to leave.


So what would you like to see in the game and which one are you going to buy? Thoughts?

I'm going to get NBA 2k10 until they make a game I don't like. After NBA live 2002, I never went back to live. I started with NBA 2k3 and have had them ever since.

I use to be a nba live fanboy until 2006. I was hearing the 2k series was better so I bought nba 2k7 and never looked back. To me, nba live's graphics is not as good as the 2k series. The only negative about 2k9 was no more lobbies. I hope 2k10 brings the lobbies back.

I like all of your ideas alot except you cant ever have realistic drafts. College players' rights belong to the NCAA so you cant mix them with NBA players.

Amen! I still have the original 2k on dreamcast with Iverson on the cover. That will be the best basketball game ever made.

With that said, I'm a 2k10 whore...If you all want to challenge me on Xbox Live, please do so. My live id is JOHN08.

Challenge me...don't worry, I'm not gonna pick the very best teams like most people do...Lakers, Celtics or Cavs...I pick average to worst teams to make it more challenging.

I use the Warriors or Clippers...

i used to LOVE NBA Live up until 2006, but when they switched to 360 games they just started sucking balls. The gameplay is terrible, the animations are rigid and not fluid at all, and the graphics are just bland, detailed, but bland.


anyone who knows anything about basketball can see that 2k10 is the better game. It's just so much smoother and waaaaay more realistic. the animations and shooting motions, EVERYTHING

NBA Live is suited or little kids.

2k10 is just more realistic and more fun.

2K Sports is and will always be the best sports games available for consumers.

EA has never got down "Visual Concepts"

Also, 2K sports ALWAYS has better game play.

I would always pass up Madden to get ESPN 2K Football games. Madden really Didnt get on the same page as 2K untill last year.

Don't waste your money.... Buy 2K

Wow, I haven't played a "nex-gen" NBA game yet. I always played the Live games on the SNES and on the PSX. I then got a Dreamcast and ended up getting NBA 2k1 (for the dreamcast) and NBA 2k3 for the XBOX. I then got NBA Live 2005 for the XBOX. I DID like that NBA Live had 1 button for dunking and 1 button for shooting. It felt like it gave me more possibilities.

But when I get my first NBA game (maybe this year...or next year after the Knicks get Lebron, Bosh, and Amare), I'm sure it'll look stunning.

I just played my first "next gen" (since it is already current gen) NFL game this past offseason and well...was kind of disappointed in Madden. Maybe because before then I had only played the NFL 2k games for the xbox (and well, before that I played the madden snes/psx ones but honestly, those don't count since they are way different than what we have now). Hopefully these newer games for this generation of NBA games wows me.

im pretty sure Spike Lee decided to put that up as a joke. 2k sports set out 4 covers voted by the fans to see which would be the new cover. The fans decided on the two 1) Kobe in knicks jersey(joke by spike lee that odviously was favoured by the fans, 2) was kobe in the laker jersey that was ultimatley chosen to be the cover.

Im pretty sure they woulndt allow for the kobe in a knicks jersey

To be quite honest, yes the graphics ar cool and all, but I miss the old PS2 versions where you hold square to dunk on the breakaway, in the paint, or simple stuff like that.

Now you have to use the analong sticks and dunk meters and its too complicated.

Zefflin
07-08-2009, 02:19 PM
I haven't played many 2k's but it was always so easy for me to shoot mid-range and 3's in those games. Live has annoying glitches but 2k probably does too. I'll stick with Live but I'm definatly going to give 2K another go around.

ahaa i know what you mean i miss the old NBA Live 05 were you could alley oop from half court and just press sqaure or whatever to shoot threes ahaha, I remember being unstopable with Donyell Marshall:P:P

Sportfan
07-08-2009, 02:22 PM
I really hope they add some stuff that happens on the court that isnt in the game, when there's a hard foul or a shove, it would be nice if you could have the option to get a little fight/shoving contest going on the court. Also if you could have the option to trash talk with other players or argue with the ref it would add more realism

-They should add Superstar Mode to both of the Games (like Madden 09)

-Add Technical Fouls

-Have more realistic Created Players (In Dynasty/Association Mode too)

- Add the Real All-Star weekend in 2k (Slam Dunk Contest, Shooting Starts, Skill Challenge, etc.)

- I want the Fake Rookies in Association mode to be a lot better and not average 1.5ppg and win Rookie of the Year

I play 2k but I still think 2k has some MAJOR issues. That seriously get on my nerves, vs'ing the computer mainly but definitely gameplay is a big problem with me. Game is to herky jerky. I was playing 2k8 and it was sooooooo much smoother then 2k9.

NBA 2k is where it's at ; Nba Live is a terrible game. Anybody who says otherwise is only lying to themselves. EA Sports has been serving up the same garbage for years , including their awful football games which they simply tweak the rosters and re-release.

NBA 2K10 easily

Better graphics, better crowd, each person in the crowd made individually and they leave when the game is over, go crazy when there is a run etc.

Better gameplay more realistic

2K10 is an easy choice, not to mention Kobe is on the cover! :D

07-08-2009, 03:49 PM
2k although i did like the changes to live 09. the only thing i hope they change in 2k is the waiting. waiting for the ref to give you the ball on the side lines at the free throw line. and i hate when a team scores on you and they cut to that player running back down the court, before you can throw the ball. its cool the first time but wish you could turn it off. and im not talking about the sprite cam. o yeah also the gatorade cooler love the idea but get that big *** thing out of my way. it flies over the middle of your screen at any moment. just have the announcers say its coming and put nothing on the screen or just have it pop up. no need to fly in front of the screen. other then that the game play is great oops are great and dunks are great.

Hell I just rented Live 09 and you need a damn code just to update the rosters and the codes in the game case or buy it from the PS store. At least in 2k its free. Plus the character models are horrible the NYK don't look like themselves and the ratings are horrible. David Lee led the league in double double yet he has the same overall as Eddy Curry.

TRUST ME. Get NBA 2K10. The commentating sucks in 2K but the gameplay is so great that it just cancels that out. I never downloaded the NBA 2K9 demo but if I'm not mistaken you are stuck with the "Broadcast" camera angle. IMO the "2K" camera angle makes the game 10x better.

2K10 no questions asked Live is str8 garbage now as far as gameplay. The only thing live has on 2K is the shoes besides that 2k all the way. I am also praying and I mean praying literally that they bring back College Hoops 2K10 because I will not buy another EA sports bball game. I think the College Hoops series was one of the best series ever and I am so hurt that they had to cancel it because of stupid @$$ EA sports

Agreed. That game was amazing. I'd always get Steve Franchise and Jamal Crawford.. my team was unstoppable.

NBA 2K is much more realistic than Live and I think for most people it simply makes it a better game.

I actually played a lot of NBA Live with my little brother this year. I hadn't played Live in a long time and it has improved quite a bit. The Dynamic DNA system and game rewind was really cool. The improved pick and roll control, advancements in signature play calling are all nice improvements too. And honestly, the online play, particularly team play was straight up better than 2K.

Nonetheless, until Live fixes realism, such as blocks, post play and the general feeling of semi-arcade play; NBA 2K will be the favorite. While Live is at it, rehaul stats please.

i like the NBA 08, NBA 09 series better than the Live and the 2K series....

im suprised no one here has played that series...i got it on PS3 and I LOVE that game(s). Check that series out if you get a chance. You will be pleasantly suprised, like i was, then and now I am converted to that newer series...
