Electronic Arts announced today thatMarch Madness 08 has officially gone gold for the Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3 and PlayStation 2. The game will ship to retailers under the EA SPORTS brand on Tuesday, December 11.
NCAA March Madness 08 creates new ways to play by challenging you to master the strategy and skills required to dominate down low with a new feature called Dynamic Post Control. For the first time, you have complete control over dozens of new offensive post moves, including finesse ones like an up-and-under, drop step, hook spin, jump hook, and pump fake, and the ability to combine moves together. Animations can be interrupted at any time to transition into a new move, enabling you to read and respond to the defense, just like real life. Take command of the post on defense with strategic positioning to dominate down low -- guard your opponent man-to-man, front him to deny the entry pass or read the offense and go for the steal!

Featuring more than 70 classic teams, take the court as the 1972 UCLA Bruins against any of the great North Carolina Tar Heels teams of the 1980s, the Duke Blue Devils of the 1990s or the two-time defending national champion University of Florida Gators.
