IGN Looks at NBA Live 08 has a look at the upcoming NBA Live 08' release, which will be available for the Nintendo Wii, Sony PlayStation 3, Wireless, Sony PlayStation 2, PC, Sony PSP and XBox 360. One of the newest features of the game is a FIBA tournament mode that fans can now play.


Gamers can play any of the eight international teams (including Team US) in the Play Now mode or in the new FIBA World Championship mode. The Championship mode is an eight team single-elimination tournament. More importantly, because the real international players will be added into NBA Live 08, they can also be brought in to your Franchise just as a real NBA team might draft an international player.

"We're very excited to count FIBA as a close partner," said Jordan Edelstein, Director of Product Marketing, EA Sports. "Adding the FIBA World Championship license to the NBA Live franchise, allows us at EA Sports to add a new layer of authenticity to the franchise, giving fans all over the world a deeper virtual basketball experience."

"We are very pleased to partner with the world's #1 videogame company to enable basketball fans worldwide to play the FIBA World Championship," said FIBA Commercial Director Matthew Osmon.
