Your NBA Live '08 coverboy is...

Recommended Posts

Gilbert Arenas.

Frankly, I'm surprised that Lebron still hasn't managed to make the cover yet, but his time can't be too far off. Unless of course he bolts ship for Sega or 989, which I would highly doubt.

Oh, and for those of you concerned, yes he's wearing the gold jersey on the cover, at least for now.

For a look at the cover check out the video here.

No word yet on if EA will add a "Hibachi!" button or a swag meter.

I'm buying this game, even if they don't make it for the DS.

I know I won't. Live nowadays is too "arcady" for me.

come on, back in the day they had the hand check button, THATS Arcade

Arenas was injured before he made the cover, right? So does that make the curse retroactive?

Umm...there isn't a Live cover curse. Just Madden.

...

..but to answer your question, yes, the curse would be retroactive. Still counts in my book.

well there was also NBA Live 04....

There's your cover.

Allow me to cast some doubt as to the veracity of that picture that right now... it looks identical to the 2007 series of games, and EA has been pretty consistent in changing those up every year. Not wholesale changes, mind you - the games usually resemble previous years - but there are usually noticeable differences.

It wouldn't be too hard to photoshop that kind of cover, although the inclusion of photographic context suggests someone was, at the very least, working hard to make it look authentic.

I like who they chose to be the cover boy of Live, Arenas is a good choice

Why is he wearing a jersey with the Adidas logo on it?????

Because Adidas makes the jerseys?

But NBA rules prohibit the manufactuer's logo from being on the jersey during play.

So obviously he posed for this one, and it's not really an "in-game" shot.

Yeah, deep down inside I had a feeling that this was probably just the initial cover they put out to hype the new cover athlete. On a different site I saw a slightly different version of the same cover:

Note how the ESPN logo is bigger on this one, so I'm doubting that either of these will end up being the finished product. Hopefully it means that the gold won't be featured on the real deal.
