Jose Reyes Named Cover Athlete and Official Spokesman for
Major League Baseball® 2K8

New York, NY – December 6, 2007 – 2K Sports, the sports publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: TTWO), announced today that New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes will be the cover athlete and official spokesman for Major League Baseball® 2K8.

“This year we have signed one of the most exciting players in all of Major League Baseball® as our official cover athlete,” said Ben Brinkman, Executive Producer, Major League Baseball® 2K8. “Jose Reyes is a multi-talented player – a great baserunner, fielder and hitter, making him the perfect spokesperson for Major League Baseball® 2K8.”

“This is the first time I have ever been on the cover of a video game and it is very exciting to be a part of the best video game out there,” said Jose Reyes.

Although he is best known for his speed and base-stealing ability, Jose Reyes is also one of the most well-rounded players in the game and is the first player in baseball history to have more than 63 steals, 120 runs, 192 hits, and 19 homers in a single season. Reyes led the Major League in 2006 with 17 triples and 64 stolen bases and set a new Mets club record with 104 hits at Shea Stadium. Also an avid video gamer and long time fan of 2K Sports’ products, All-Star Shortstop Jose Reyes is a natural fit as the official spokesperson for this year’s edition of the critically acclaimed Major League Baseball 2K series.

Major League Baseball® 2K8 will be available spring 2008 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PLAYSTATION®3 and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment systems, the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, and the Wii™ home video game system.

Good choice but if they picked a SS don't u think they should've picked the man who won the MVP this year??
Or they could've choose J.J Hardy
