    Live is much more fun than 2k8.

    However 2k8 is a better game.

    If that makes sense.

    But maybe I'm just bias because I'm one of the best Live players in the country. lol

    I hate 2K. I can't wait until EA finalizes the hostile takeover. I am forced to buy their baseball games though since EA stopped.

    I've been playing Live since '98. I refuse to switch.

    You obviously haven't logged many hours of Live 08 on 360/PS3. Just don't get how anyone could think 2K8 is better than Live 08. That is unless you like looking at graphics that haven't been updated since PS2/Xbox. And yes I know that anyone that replies to this will say "BUT THE GAMEPLAY IS BETTER," but I'm not sure that is really true with the 08 edition of these games.

    I haven't played Live much, maybe 2/3 games. I do like the 2k gameplay more, but I suppose that may have to do with being used to the control scheme. I really don't care about graphics.

    I have played live since it started in 95. Actually the company started in 89 with Celtics vs. Lakers (later on more well known and playedBulls vs. Blazers) on MS-Dos PCs.

    Its first year had awesome graphics


    I remained faithful until 2007. That was the worst basketball game ever. This year was better but the more I play it the more it sucks. I hate the game play of 2K.

    Will someone make a worthy Bball game?

    I used to HATE the 2K series. But starting with 2K7, the more I played, the more I got a feel for how it plays, and eventually I realized they'd gotten a LOT of things right. But transitioning to it from Live (I used to only get and play Live since 2000) took a while as it's a pretty big difference.

    2K still needs work, but there are so many things it does right. I have played more than twice in the past couple of months (busy playing other games), so I admit I can't list examples anymore like I could have then, but 2K has a lot of good going for it.

    My gamertag is duke dynamite. Go ahead and add me. I only do Live online to get roster updates, but I may play.

    Like I said, just wait until 2K is absorbed by EA later this year. They already cancelled their NCAA Basketball franchise, but be worried that NBA 2K9 will not happen possibly.

    For more info on the EA hostile takeover of 2K, go to www.gameinformer.com. I just don't want you guys thinking I am pulling this out of somewhere it doesn't need to be.

    why anyone would want EA to buy out competition is mind boggling...

    I haven't had the pleasure to play 2K b-ball since 2k3 series as I no longer own any consoles...the only junk I'm stuck with the Live 08 for the PC...and its so useless...horrid gameplay which just pushes me to play simulation mode and then throw it to the side

    That's because the PC version is so watered-down compared to the console version. That's why.

    And it isn't because I want the takeover to happen, it's just going to happen.

    Yeah the PC versions of Live have been a joke for a couple of years or so.

    Ever since I played 2k6, I've been hooked. IMO Live has been continuing it's downward spiral since 05. The only thing it has going for them is FIBA and even then they don't have all the teams.

    The last Live I really liked was 2004.

    I actually have enjoyed the Live franchise since their crossover to the next-gen consoles.

    Say what you will about 2K, but I think that EA has a better grip on sports games since they've been doing it longer.

    I've been stuck on 2k ever since it came out for the Sega Dreamcast. Live is cute but not quite solid as a basketball simulation. I played Live 08 for the Xbox 360 this year and the player models are downright pathetic. You'd think EA could do a better job.

    2K could stand to improve a lot of facets of their game (if they get the chance), but overall the pace, environment, and strategy make it a much more realistic basketball simulation. Live is disjointed and focused more on action sequences and flashy moves than actually setting up legitimate game scenarios.
