Wouldn't a more accurate comparison be NBA 2K6 for XBox vs. NBA 2K6 for XBox 360?

Yeah that is the biggest problem with EA next gen games. All of their player models are mapped in such a way that they do indeed look like glistening wax. Hopefully this will be fixed with the net group of games. They look very very good, but not really life like.

So I just checked out some videos of 2k6 for the 360 and I gotta say, while the graphics are better, IT PLAYS JUST LIKE 2k6 for the Xbox.  That is a CHEAP way to make a next-gen bball game.  Same animations and everything.  About the only super difference is during replays and stuff where the jerseys flow and the players look really good...

But WOW that's disappointing.  I thought with next-gen we'd get a better physics system; a better *playing* game of basketball.  The 360 version plays JUST LIKE the Xbox version, and that is really, really disappointing.

Hopefully that real next-gen bball game comes next year :/  

And while I'm ranting, 2k Sports seems to be just, essentially, ripping off 360 consumers.  I would feel ripped off to pay $60 (or however much) just for a graphical update of a current-gen game, after I've spent $40 on this gen's game.  And don't get me started on the NHL game...wow, that hardly looks different.  But I'm sure during replays it looks better, but on the ice, hardly looks better.  Nevermind the matrix-y gimmick crease control bs.

Looks like next-gen sports games aren't coming till next year.  Well, next-gen to me, anyway.

Are there shots or videos of how the 360 looks on a non HD tv? Just wondering what kind of graphical improvement nonHDers will see.

You are bascially seeing it in these screens- the improved poly counts, specular lighting, etc.  The only thing a HDTV buys you is improved resolution.

Hetz:

Yep, happy now.   biggrin

Though, I kinda agree with some of the other posters.  While the 360 graphics look fantastic, the skin does look like it's made of wax.  Almost as if they were MacFarlane figures or something.

McFarlane figures? Wouldn't they have horns and axes and tails (oh my!)?

slywink They look waxy because they're standing still... I'm sure seeing it in motion will make the difference.

To be honest I've never seen the new one. I just assumed it would be a lot smaller, as the XBox is huge.

Ok, I'm buying a 360!

I don't even care if the graphics on the box aren't even as good as that.  More of the same?  Fine by me!  Zoom zoom.  I love you PGR!

Wish my car was that clean.  Hell, might as well wish my car was a Ferarri.

Unfortunately, it's turning out that Kameo and PGR3 look to be the ONLY launch titles worth getting.

Oblivion?  Feb. 2006.
DOA 4?  Dec 2005.

The only thing left is sports games and 360 versions of current-gen titles (THAW, GUN and NFS: Most Wanted).  What a crappy launch window so far.

The launch games do have me slightly depressed today.  For XBox I was all excited to get it, PGR, Dead or Alive, and Madden home and play it.  This time around, I'm just excited to get the 360 and; well, Kameo looks the most interesting to me of the games coming out.  But getting it moreso because I'll need a new game to play on the new console versus it being a game I Need.

At least I'll have it ready for when Oblivion launches!

The basketball players on the 360 pic look like they've been playing neaby a radioactive waste-dump!  I bet I could spot them in the dead of night!  Human glowsticks!

Ok, so maybe not that bad, but they're glowing.

PGR3 though, looks amazing.
