I'd get early footage up, but unfortunately I don't have a debug 360 yet.

Sometime before March Madness. There was no "Official" release date...at least in the PR that was sent to me.

Sweet, what a detailed press release. They have player models? No way!

A focus on "players' shot distribution." After what we've seen with NBA 2K6, I really like the sound of that.

This is, without question, my most anticipated video game release right now. If only we knew when it was....

This is a must have for me. I mean, come on... they have player models. I'm with Z on this one.. :y4:

On the flip side, what did the NCAA rule on using the player likenesses in videogames? I rememeber sometime last year that was some big debacle over it. I don't want to play with a bunch of generic guys.
