X05: Gameplay of NBA 2K6

X05: Gameplay of NBA 2K6

Blim also recorded this video from 2K Sport's NBA 2K6. It shows a match from the attract mode, and god, I must say - it clearly must be one of the best looking next gen games so far. Anyways, keep in mind that it's still not finished, which you will notice. Many times.
Update by blimblim: In case you do not know what a beta version is, it's obvious that the shorts problems, the duplicate characters, some players faces not detailed and the ninja cheerleaders will all be corrected in the final release. Just concentrate on what is actually working instead of pointing out what is wrong in this build. At least we now know for sure that the footage we saw last week was really realtime, the devs only choose to show only finalized content in these, as should be.
Update 2 : 2K Games contacted me to remove this video. Sorry.

Why are these all great quality but with NO sound? Would like to hear something from the sound also beause that's also becoming very important in games these days and it's alot nicer to watch a video with some sounds anyways

I doubt you'd want to hear the audio from this game anyway, IMO, the commentary VO is horrible

I did not have the right cable to get direct feed sound, and getting anything out of the headphones was simply impossible.

The only thing I'm dissapointed with here is the crowd, it looks exactly like last gen's forerunner crowd. Hopefully they'll update this a bit when the closeups are taken, otherwise it'll look a bit out of place.

I got 400kb/sec on bittorrent downloading this.

Steve Nash looks like he has down syndrome.

Are you kiddin ? The crowd look like early ps2 main characters ! Well, maybe not PS2, but they're in par with good psone characters ! current gen, the crowd is not even in 3D !
Commented on 2005-10-09 19:15:34
The crowd is in 3D. You need to go look at some screenshots of the xbox version. Huge improvement.
Commented on 2005-10-09 19:16:24
It's just the lighting on the crowd, makes them look sorta dull.
Like they're all zone lit.
No matter I guess, it's still impressive to see that many 3-d characters, just for a crowd.

Maybe they should gussy up the chearleaders though... everyone likes to look at the cheerleaders, hehe.

Really ? Sorry, didn't know that.
Commented on 2005-10-09 19:19:49
Yea I wanna see the cheerleaders sweat. Their shirts should get wet too. Im sure will get plenty of upskirts with the new cloth physics. You can almost see the players balls in the 3rd pic.

lmao.
That must be an instance where the clothes physics bug out.
He looks like there's a fan underneath him or something.

All I gotta say is: even though I know the actual game looks better, those screens look like crap. They make the characters look stupid.
Commented on 2005-10-09 19:44:34
Hmm after watcing the video... you SERIOUSLY think that looks the most next gen? There are a LOT of stuff that looks better than this IMO. I think if this is a representation of where it is now, they need to delay it and fix it a LOT. Maybe even recap the faces, because some of them don't look anything like their counterparts... doesn't even look like they capped some of them. Steve Nash anyone?
Commented on 2005-10-09 20:02:02 In reply to PlumbDrumb
He didnt say the most next gen. He said one of the best looking. The game is still a work in progress there is alot of clipping and bad transitions in the animations but it still looks amazing. VC always does great stuff, way better than EA at graphics. Theres no doubt in my mind this will be one of the best looking 360 games.
Commented on 2005-10-09 20:04:30
how can they hold back ont his game....its a launch title if they hold back they lose all their grounds to compete with nba live for 360 and they will definetly not risk that. I jus hope they get the kinks out in time
Commented on 2005-10-09 20:07:04
Ya i would say this is the game with the biggest jump in visual quality from current gen to next, or maybe that's because i've seen GOW so much that's it's lost it's effect.

Ninja cheerleaders ROFL
Commented on 2005-10-09 20:14:42
PERSONALLY, I say currently NBA Live looks way better than this, because they actually have characters that LOOK like their counterparts, instead of deformed faces. All of the Live characters are mo-capped, and as of now it is more than a step above this.
Commented on 2005-10-09 20:18:19
Yea right. I seen the videos for Live they dont look nearly as good, especially the replays.
