News: Hornets point guard pulls cover duty.
2K Games has announced that Chris Paul, starting point guard for the New Orleans Hornets, will be the featured athlete on the cover of NBA 2K8 for the PS2, PS3 and Xbox 360 this fall.
?It's a great honor to be a part of the best NBA video game title, let alone the guy on the cover,? said Chris Paul. ?I'm a big time video gamer and it's a dream come true to be on the cover and represent the next NBA 2K game, NBA 2K8.?
?Our success with our NBA 2K series has been greatly due to our philosophy for innovation and our ability to introduce new and unique features every year,? said Greg Thomas, President of Visual Concepts, a 2K Sports studio. ?There's a lot of anticipation for NBA 2K8 and it was only natural to select Chris Paul, one of the most exciting rising NBA stars, to represent it.?
Not much is known about the game so far, but 2K is promising to expand the game's Signature Style feature, adding "hundreds of new shooting, passing, and dribbling animations."
We'll have more soon.
