Besides the exclusive games, gamers found eight cross-platform titles to play. These titles come with an asterisk though, as they are all out of the Xbox 360, some for months.
If you don't have an Xbox 360 however, you are getting solid ports - so no worries there. Also, you can pretty much disregard all complaining about sub-par graphics. The games look great on the PS3, they just don't stand up to the 360 versions we have already played.
When a game is ported, no matter the platform, inconstancies are easily spotted. You will also find reoccurring themes: the PS3 versions have better textures in some cases, but most always have worse lighting.
These titles are decidedly lighter than their Xbox 360 counterparts, for whatever reason. This can lead to a "foggy" image in some games. This just requires some fiddling with TV controls; Samsung sets have a Dynamic Contrast option that helps to some extent.
It is almost impossible to discuss these games and not compare them to the Xbox 360 versions. This is mainly due to the fact that we have played these games longer, sometimes months longer, on the Xbox 360.
With that in mind, differences between the two platforms have been addressed. Below you will find reviews of all the cross-platform games out at launch.
NBA 2K7 — If you have this game on the PS2, you know it is a superb baller. You also know what you are getting here, as you will not be missing anything in the transition to the PS3.
You gain the sheen of next-gen graphics, which is a huge leap from the pixels and polygons present in the PS2 version.
This version actually has more signature moves than the Xbox 360 version. Although it has a couple more faces too, there are some that really look bad.
Using the SIXAXIS controller to shoot free throws works once you figure the timing out, the defense can shake the screen by shaking the controller.
There is no mistake, this is the best basketball game available, and the SIXAXIS makes it even better. Yep, even better than the Xbox 360 version.
You are not going to see any differences in graphics between the two next-gen versions, nothing worth noting, other than the above-mentioned "fogginess" that is easily adjusted.
NBA 2K7 is an extremely deep game, both online and off, that you will not get tired of for a long time. You can even change things up in a street ball mode.
