Images of NBA 08

Sony announced a new game at Gamer's Day - NBA 08 was there, and, wow. They're now focusing in face emotions, making all those crazy-eyes turning the floor into a maniac paradise. Aren't most of them supposed to look at the ball?
Update: Trailer added, including MP4 version.
Update 2: Well, who knew! This one is made by Sony, and is called NBA 08. Sorry about that.

Haha, Yeah you are right Manager. Noone of them is looking at the ball, but seems more woried that they look good in the screenshot... ^^

Still the game does look quite impressive.

NBA Live 06 I think is visually one of the best games on 360. 07 was graphically a step back, and this looks like an ever bigger step back. Compare this NBA 06 pic: http://xboxyde.com/pop_image.html?G=1949&N=3 to these pics. How odd. (Edit: apparently html tags don't work on here)

I don't think this is the EA NBA title - looks more like Sonys own NBA game...

Horrible thing to focus on.

Face emotions? The camera I play with (default), you can hardly see their hands let alone their face expression lol

Oh well, at least I know NBA2k8 won't disappoint.

Yeah this is Sony's NBA franchise, look at the ad board in the first pic.

Ugh... I don't think this looks impressive at all. More like a PS2 game in high definition with maybe some added effects & polishing.

I agree

What are you guys talking about?
Sure, it doesn't look absolutely amazing, but in no way does it look like a PS2 game...

But, yeah, why would you focus on something like facial expressions rather than something that would actually improve gameplay?

You could define ANY next gen game the same way.

About the game


What's up?

    GriftGFX Not sure they would have downgraded for performance... it's a 2007 Source game. It already has a wide performance profile. (11 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX @KORNdog: What Aphex said + they converted content to a new format and probably got lazy. It probably doesn't have the same sized team it did in development. (11 minutes ago)

    aphex187 meaning certain aspects of the game had to be downgraded. (23 minutes ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 @KORNdog: i think it's more to do with how much extra they have added since the game launched (24 minutes ago)
