Here are some scores that I saw posted from IGN pertaining to the next-gen basketball games that should be appearing in stores (think NBA2k3 is already out though). (presentation, graphics, sound, gameplay, lasting appeal) NBA 2k3 (PS2) - 8.7 (8.0,8.5,7.0,8.5,9.0) NBA 2k3 (GCN) - 8.7 (8.0,8.0,7.0,8.0,8.0) NBA 2k3 (XBOX) - 8.9 (8.0,9.0,7.0,8.0,9.0) NBA Live 2003 (XBOX) - 8.5 (9.0,7.0,8.0,8.0,9.0) NBA Live 2003 (PS2) - 8.7 (8.5,7.5,8.0,8.5,9.4) NBA Live 2003 (GCN) - 8.5 (9.0,7.0,8.0,8.0,9.0) Looks like Sega edges ahead for the basketball sims as well, after doing the same for NFL. Live has the addition of the new freestyle moves which sounds kinda cool, but NBA2k3 has Live! support on the Xbox and better graphics/models. I've been seeing a lot of promotion for EA's NBA Live 2003 on TV of late too. What are you guys thinking of picking up?
