NBA 2K10 looks kinda amazing too…

I’ve been told many times since posting about the new NBA Live that 2K’s gameplay is better.  I’m not being paid by either side (yet… but I’m open to it)… and I obviously haven’t been able to test the gameplay on these… so I’m just going by looks alone.  This one looks about as awesome... [More]
