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.

I think he's talking about the leg warmers in pic 3.

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?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's the reason why the PS pro can't exceed the targeted framerates of the base console, even if it is more capable. it would create unfair advantaged. hell, you could argue it does already (0 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (2 minutes ago)

    Sdarts @Tiz: I only played the Campaign in the Gears games, so can't say anything about Multiplayer. But Campaign wise, I stand by my previous comments. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Phaethon360: I completely disagree with you. Gears 2 was shit, while Gears 3 was an excellent game. (4 Hours ago)
