NBA 2K7



NBA 2K7 is from a basketball video game series that was initially exclusive for the Sega Dreamcast starting in 1999. The series has since been available for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, Xbox 360, and GameCube. The NBA 2K series is developed by Visual Concepts and originally published by Sega, under the label Sega Sports. Sega would later sell the NBA 2K series along with Visual Concepts to Take-Two Interactive. The series is currently published by 2K Sports, a publishing label started by Take-Two in 2005.

NBA 2K was Sega's first foray into the basketball video game market since their Sega Genesis game system and it competes against EA Sports' NBA Live series. Starting in 2002, Sega implemented the American television network, ESPN's brand with their Sega Sports video games. The ESPN brand was used for 3 games until ESPN signed a 15-year deal with EA Sports.

The first four games of the series featured commentary from fictional announcers "Bob Steele" and "Rod West" (voice actors hired by Sega), but since NBA 2K3 the game's announcing team has been something of a revolving door, featuring commentary from the likes of Bill Walton, Tom Tolbert, Kevin Frazier, Michelle Tafoya, and "Bill Fitzgerald" (the same actor who voiced Steele). The color and play-by-play commentary in NBA 2K6, is provided by Kenny Smith and Kevin Harlan, respectively. Craig Sager provides sideline reports.

The PlayStation 3 version of NBA 2K7 will be the first version to support motion sensing controllers with a freethrow shooting mechanic that has the player move the Sony SIXAXIS controller in a motion similar to a real freethrow shot.Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, with no Front-Cover Texts, and with no Back-Cover Texts.
