A Quick Note on NBA2K6 (Xbox)

I've been listening to a game while I worked on the column today and the announcing is exceptional. It's some of the best announcing I've ever heard in a video game. And the gameplay has been significantly improved, as well as the animations. The series has been revitalized with this year's version.

So here's the deal: the NBA2K6 videos for the 360 are just sick. They are absolutely phenomenal. If Visual Concepts can just get the graphics/animation finished and leave in the core gameplay/announcing/feature set, it could be a defining moment in the history of sports games.

Can they do it? I don't know. I doubt if they even know at this point.
