2K Sports has thrown itself into the next gen console world with it's promise of two games for the PS3 game console. [i]NBA 2K7[/i] will have 1080p support, an improvement to the Signature Style animation system, and new free through shooting techniques to be used with the new SIXAXIS Wireless Controller that will be available for use on the PS3. [i]NHL 2K7[/i] will carry the graphical superiority along with in game realism and authenticity and will also bring along two new gameplay modes that will be included in the game: Crease Control puts the view from the goalie's perspective and the control scheme will be tied to the SIXAXIS controller. Along with this there will also be an ability where players can check the status of other players by moving the controller in the question of the player or players in question. Both of these games will offer online play, a tournament mode, and online leagues with fantasy draft.
