Preview: NBA 09 The Inside

Glenn from the PS Nation podcast, the official podcast of PS Fanboy, took some time to play NBA 09: The Inside for PSP. Here's his impressions of the upcoming game.

I'll be the first to admit I really haven't paid attention to the NBA for a couple of years. I still root for my Milwaukee Bucks, and even still use them in video games, but I rarely watch them play any more. Lately, if I'm playing a basketball game, it sits firmly in the "arcadey" category. I even own a full-sized NBA Maximum Hangtime arcade cabinet.

When I opened the small package that I received from Sony, and realized that this was the first pre-release game that they sent to us here at the PS Nation Podcast, I was shocked and excited. I may not spend an insane amount of time on Basketball games like I do for other titles, but I do play them. There's a lot to cover here, but I'll tell you this--what I've seen and played so far is surprisingly good!

Ensuring NBA 08 is different on PSP than PS3/PS2

PJ Snavely's recent PlayStation blog post echoes the sentiments of many PSP owners. "Personally, I find it very frustrating when developers bring an identical version of a sports game to the PSP, so we've gone out of our way to ensure that NBA '08 is significantly different than its PS2/PS3 brethren."

To make sure that NBA '08 felt fresh on PSP, the developers added a number of mini-games. The one the team seems most proud of appears to be Conquest mode which is described as "Basketball meets Risk." As described in the blog entry, "In Conquest, you pick an NBA team and then try to "capture" other NBA cities by playing them head-to-head. If you win, you take over that city and all of its players. Should you lose, the defending city has the option to steal one of your players."

Just like in real life.

PSP modes of NBA 08 captured on video

Sony Computer Entertainment's upcoming NBA 08 looks quite special on PSP. Why? Because the development team is adding a whole slew of mini-games and modes exclusively for the portable version. The carnival games, featured above, are easily the most talked about. These games range from the obvious, like HORSE, but move to the more surreal, such as Pinball. Even if you don't like the idea of these bonuses, you have to give the team some props for deciding to add modes exclusively for the handheld version.

NBA '08 gets cover athlete, new screens

The minigame-infused PSP edition of NBA '08 is sporting some impressive features for a PSP basketball game. Sony has released a few new images of the game in action, as seen in our gallery below. With expanded multiplayer features, downloadable content and "expanded audio commentary," we have to say that we're expecting big things out of the game. The Suns' Stoudemire, the cover athlete for NBA '06, will return as the cover athlete for this year's iteration.

Deal of the day: NBA for $10 at Best Buy

Deal of the day: NBA for $10 at Best BuyOne of my favorite parts of a new year is the mass price drops of the previous year's sports games. Now with the upcoming release of NBA '07, it looks like NBA is getting the price-cut treatment as Best Buy has it listed for the extremely low price of $10.

While the game has an average score of 57 at Metacritic, for $10 NBA is most likely the cheapest PSP game around, and it's probably worth a Hamilton.
