    Default Which NBA video game will you buy?

    I'm just curious which game folks are going to be getting this fall?

    I believe there's going to be 3 options. I haven't played a basketball game on a video system in awhile. I believe the last one was NBA Live 04 or 05

    I know NBA Live used to be the NBA game to have, but I was curious if that has changed in recent years?

    2K9 is the game to get. EA is attempting to make themselves relevant again but until their Live gameplay is remotely close to 2K, it's an easy decision.

    NBA 2k9, no doubt about it.

    Don't know yet honestly. I was a live guy until 2004, but I've been a 2k guy since then.

    Any opinion on the NBA 09: the Inside?

    The screenshots have looked pretty sweet, and I believe it's the same company that does the MLB the show franchises which I've heard good things about

    Sounds like 2k is the game to get so far, is it because of gameplay, features, what makes it so likable?

    2k's gameplay has been better for many year's, but I heard Live 08 really stepped it up.

    That series has always been a distant third. And will likely remain as such.

    I've been a big 2k guy for a couple of years now. I will certainly chose 2k9 over the competition.

    Wow, well I guess the NBA 2k seems the way to go so far.

    I had heard live was struggling a bit so that's why I looked into other games.

    The NBA 09: Inside screenshots looked cool, I like how the score in the corner has TNT. Makes it seem realistic, but if it's a distance 3rd, I may go another route.

    I finally broke down and got a PS3 so I'm curious which sports game to get, since that's really all I play

    I'm sticking with EA. This is the year that all the games are on the same level of quality that Madden NFL 09 is on.

    I'm really excited.

    I think it's been a MUCH better game than the others for a few years now. If you do some searches on comparision reviews, 2K always comes out on top. 2k man here!

    I bought Live 08. There are too many bugs. The opposing PG is like Marbury. Shooting and driving ever time. Paul shot like 60 shots against me and hit 39%. I smoked them.

    Because so many of you get 2K I might cross over so I can play some online game. Gnome was playing for like 6 hours yesterday. Actually he was idle for 6 hours.

    2k for 9 straight years... remember when it first came out for the Sega Dreamcast? Those were the days.

    I bought a Dreamcast for the NFL 2k football game which I was hooked on at the time.

    Soul calibur was another reason as well.

    As the the bball game. I looked at a few compare/contrast of last year's models and 2k came out on top, NBA 08 actually came out ahead of Live as well in some reviews.

    I've looked at the features and other aspects for this years game as well, but though the NBA Live DNA aspect sounds cool, I think I'll go the 2k route as well.

    The gameplay just looks a lot smoother

    Another good thing about buying 2K9 (if you have a 360), is that you can join the PD league...

    I imagine we won't be doing 82 games this year either.

    That would've been pretty cool if my g/f's 360 wouldn't have gotten stolen by one of her roommates at the time.

    Now I'm just going to get a PS3. I personally like the Blu Ray feature since I'm a avid movei watcher

    Yeah, I think we want to do it again, but definitely with a smaller regular season.

    Well it's going to be a hard decision for me.

    I really enjoyed 2K8 but I heard Live 08 was good and this year, EA is doing something that I think is going to be pretty cool.

    Constantly updating the players stats from the last game they played in real life. So say like last year when Danny was scoring big in the last few weeks of the season, I'm assuming it was upgrade his stats accordingly.

    It just looks cool. I may have to buy both.....
