2K Sports confirms day-one PS3 hoops, pucks

Publisher promises NHL 2K7 and NBA 2K7 will be available alongside Sony's new system November 17.



While Sony has been shy about etching its PlayStation 3 launch lineup in stone, publishers are being a little more definite about matters. Activision has confirmed retailer listings that Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Tony Hawk's Project 8 are shipping out this week. Today, 2K Sports announced another pair of games--NBA 2K7 and NHL 2K7--will show up on day one.

Both games will incorporate the PS3's motion-sensitive Sixaxis controller, with NBA 2K7 using it to shoot free throws and NHL 2K7 letting players throw checks and control their goalies with a flick of the wrist. Both games will also boast the same feature sets as their counterparts on other consoles, including online leagues with live fantasy drafts, tournament options, and more. In addition, NBA 2K7 will include 1080p support to take advantage of "full HD."

NHL 2K7 is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older. NBA 2K7 is rated E for Everyone. Both games will retail for $59.99. For more on the games, check out GameSpot's hands-on impressions of the Sixaxis implementation in NBA 2K7 and NHL 2K7.
