I’ve played a lot of sports games in my life – in fact, some of my favorites come from the Madden and NBA 2K titles. There’s just something awesome about dominating in a virtual sport even when I’d have no chance on a real football field or basketball court. While I’d play each of the games a little differently (obviously), there’s still one thing I always did. I always created myself as a player. While it’s fun to play as someone else, it was also incredibly rewarding to see my own name on the back of a jersey, even if I was only living vicariously through a digital version of myself. And while each of those games gave me an almost infinite amount of options to create myself, I could never really seem to get, well, me. Oh, my player looked similar, but it was also a lot different. (The beard and eyes were never quite right). Now, though, with NBA 2K15 at least, the game will actually scan your face to create a player.
So, if you game on a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One, you can now create a player that will look just like you. Seriously, the examples I’ve seen are crazily accurate and have to almost be seen to be believed. Finally – we can all see what we’d really look like if we were in the NBA!
Will you be picking up the latest installment of NBA 2K15? It comes out on October 7th. Game on!
