Yeah I was pretty bad at it too, but its all in the timing so youll eventually get used to getting it right almost every time.

I decided to go ahead and open NBA 07 and try it as well. I'm definitely better at NBA 07 and it looks good but the overall presentation in NBA2K7 is a lot better I think. I only lost by 8 in NBA 07 and lost by 40 in NBA2K7 (just b/c I kept shooting when trying to do a move b/c of the shot stick). NBA 07 plays a lot like NBA Live 07.

One thing that NBA 07 has that I wish were in NBA 2k7 were the pre-game intros. It always brings me back to the bulls era when jordan and scottie used to play with the bulls theme blasting and laser light show going on.

That said, NBA2k7 is pretty hard, theres a good learning curve there, but I think thats what makes it more realistic imo.

I agree on the still function. My tv has a pause function where it will freeze whatever is on the screen then I take the pic. I tried taking a pic without it frozen and the results are what you see in the pic posted earlier in this thread. I find it almost impossible to get a decent pic unless the screen is paused.

Hmm, I'll have to check mine. I think the remote has a freeze button but I wasn't sure what I'd ever need that for. Maybe this is the reason.

I don't think my TV has anything like that but nevertheless I took some pics. I gotta load them on the PC and sort through the good/bad ones first. Expect pics of GT: HD(Lotus, Ferrari and G35), and the HD Casino Royale Trailer from the PS Store.

I started downloading GT: HD a while ago but it's only at 66%. I can't wait to try it especially after seeing some of the screenshots.

I ended up hooking up a USB keyboard so it would be easier to sign up for the PSN. I'm glad the consoles allow that sort of thing these days. Much nicer.

Sigh, this was harder than I thought it would be. It's hard to judge how the pics come out until you see the full res on your PC and let's just say pretty much all of them came out like crap. Here are the few that I thought were worth posting.....Mind you I have no tripod so I just tried to remain very very still.

Those pics look awesome Marvel_us! Here is a trick you can try when attempting to take a picture with no flash. Use the back of a chair as a temporary tripod to steady your shots. Even a brain surgeon would have a hard time trying to keep a digital camera steady when taking night shots with no flash!

Thanks, I tried using a chair but couldn't find one high enough to get the right pic. I'm going to try stacking things on my highest chair next time when taking them.

OMG I just played an amazing game of NBA2k7 in my Miami Heat season! Versus the Jazz and I was down by at least 10 throughout the whole game then lit it up in the 4th quarter to go to overtime. Pulled it out in overtime by two points, oh yea!

I hate it when you feel like you have to struggle to make shots when the AI seems to make even the difficult shots with ease. I showed that bastard who's boss though!

EDIT: Sigh, sports games are the ones that I usually tend to break controllers while playing. I really should stay away from them.

Nice pics. I'm going to try again soon. I've been playing around with GT:HD and I really like it. It looks really nice. I'm only on the 3rd car though.
