NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 15, 2005 - 2K Sports, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: TTWO), today announced that NBA 2K6 for Xbox 360(tm) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft has shipped to North American retailers. This groundbreaking title will incorporate next generation visuals and the most complete set of features of any Xbox 360 basketball title. This includes The Association (franchise mode), The Shot Stick, The V.I.P. System(tm), The Crib(tm), 24/7: Road to the Entertainers Basketball Classic, Dual Player Control, the Strip 'n' Rip System the most current player transactions and more. These features, coupled with unparalleled gameplay, have propelled NBA 2K6 to be the #1 rated NBA title*.

New features available exclusively on NBA 2K6 for Xbox 360 include:

* Realistic player models - NBA 2K6 brings NBA player models to life like never before with a new graphic technology based on a virtual human skeleton. Muscles and skin are layered and wrapped around the skeleton, giving each player model a realistic look and movement. This technology allows for new animations, muscle driven body movement, ultra high-resolution detail, player sweat technology and realistic player head-and-eye tracking.

* Cloth simulation - A completely physics-based cloth simulation engine delivers the most remarkable lifelike cloth movement on each player's shorts and jerseys.

* Broadcast style - NBA 2K6 is presented in a dramatic new broadcast style with dynamic camera work, new camera perspectives that are closer to the action, and depth of field effects.

* High dynamic range lighting - A new lighting technique that simulates the reflective nature of objects. For instance, an equally lit polished parquet floor will reflect more light than a player's jersey. With high dynamic range lighting, each item will reflect and absorb the correct level of light as it would in real life.

* 60 frames per second - NBA 2K6 for Xbox 360 runs at standard-setting 60 frames per second, allowing for the most responsive feel and gameplay control.

* Authentic arena lighting - The NBA 2K6 development team took samples from actual NBA basketball arenas to recreate extraordinarily detailed and lifelike in-stadium atmospheres filled with over 10,000 individual crowd models.
