Go check out what EA did with the NHL franchise.. Play 2006 and then play 2007 when they completely revamped the game and revolutionized hockey games (multiple sports game of the year awards, year after year). Now it's EA taking on the basketball franchise.. Not that hard to believe they can put out a solid game. The video is showcasing controls not graphics anyways.. Man I'm starting to think this EA vs. 2K is worse than XBox vs. PS3, people just gunna hold on to one opinion and recycle it over and over because they are too stubborn or closed-minded.
i think your 100% wrong. I was a live Faithful til this year... I had Live 09,08-98, NBA Showdown, etc.. I was a EA head.. This year I picked up 2K around March I wanna say. Cause it was only 40, and Live 10 was out since Oct and its still at 60 bucks, so I said let me give this 2k"BULLs**t" a chance... Got home, and was BLOWN away. The graphics are inferior to LIVE.. Gameplay superior to LIVE, even though getting trapped in a animation sucks, Commentary on 2k blows LIVE out the Ocean, Presentation on 2K blows LIVE out the ocean. I'm going to say online play is probably better on LIVE cause all I get is choppy connections on 2K. 2K is just the better game this year..IMO, LIVE still doesnt even have all the NBA Rules in the game, there is no "Over the back" or "Jump Ball" (toggle for the jump ball, not the start of the game)... add technical fouls, and Flagrant fouls to 2k, and it has no competition.
