GameSpot has posted their hands-on preview of NBA Live 08.
"The sixty frames per second is a big step up from last year's plodding pace; one producer challenged us to take this game and put it up against NBA Live 07 to see the difference for ourselves. Honestly, we didn't need to--you can see from the outset that Live 08 is a smoother, more stable, and, yes, quicker game of basketball. The improved animation of the players helps, as players move more like their real-life counterparts, whether dropping in Js from ten feet, or getting up close and personal underneath the basket. Even better, the new animation system features more branch points, so that you can interrupt one move and move your controlled player into another juke, spin, pass, or shot seemingly at any point."
