Weekly Recap: June 25th-July 1st

Posted July 1st, 2007 at 5:38 pm

Personally it was a very busy week as I was in New York for the NBA Live Community Event that brought about time with NBA Live 08 as well as attending the NBA Draft. Live 08 had a big week with not only the Community Day impressions but also with the exposure they got advertising.

The other EA titles naturally seemed to take a back seat to Live, as NCAA Football 08 and Madden 08 both had less of a presence this week. All-Pro Football 2K8 finally pushed out true looks at the game with footage on Gamespot as well as new trailers, thus ending marketing as the hot topic surrounding the game and shifting it to the game itself.

Important news came out that all three football titles will be running at 30fps on the PS3, with the 360 running at 60fps. The Bigs was released to very positive reviews and impressions, including from myself.
