yah me too!! i tried out the 2k8 demo, i dont like how they make you shoot free throws. its def a lot simulated than nba live.

The free throws are fine...Live's FT is what I hate...for Live, I will set it to shoot himself, for 2K, I will set it to use the player's FT % but I will shoot it myself.

i meant how we have to tilt the controller back to shoot freethrows. maybe it just takes some time to get used to

Then how do you want us to shoot the FTs?

I can't think of any other motion that's logical to do to shoot FTs...2K's quite fluid in the motion, but Live's totally crap which I can't even get used to for about 2 or 3 seasons.

I see no problems with the free throw system but even if it sucked, that wouldn't be anything that would ruin the game for me. I tune down the sliders on the fouls when I play so I don't even shoot that many.

OT: Live's FT shooting is gonna be changed back to a horizontal bar with a green space in the middle for comfort zone, similar to the one back in...2006? I forgot...but it's just a - not a +. Read on Gamespot.

One quarter - looks a little rough but you can easily see the graphical and presentation upgrades. Holy (bleep)!

Nugget: That video is from E3, I watched the conference Live, and the producer or whatever is using Celtics, IN LA(where E3 is held).

ickerfan: Yeah, going 82-0 or 81-1 is normal...that 81-1 is because there's a achievement/record for that 1 loss game...and in my assosciation, Celtics have to go 4-3 every round till meeting Lakers in the Finals...:rock:

I wish they had this for PC. Do you guys think it'd still be good getting it on the PS2?

Definitely not. PS2 and PC graphics essentially the same but it's horrendous compared to the next gen.
