NBA 2K7 demo slams XBL

Gamers can now run the court with 2K Sports' pro basketball simulation; demo takes up 1GB of disc space, features Mavs, Heat.



Xbox 360 sports demos have been in plentiful supply lately. Gamers got to try out Madden NFL 07 a few weeks ago, and this week saw demos for hockey games from both Electronic Arts and 2K Sports.

Today, one more jock-tastic game joined the ranks of the free trials for Microsoft's next-generation console--a demo of NBA 2K7 was released on Xbox Live Marketplace.

The demo features the option of playing either as the NBA champion Miami Heat or as the runner-up Dallas Mavericks, and play is limited to one four-minute quarter. Like the NHL 2K7 demo before it, the sample of NBA 2K7 weighs in at a Shaq-like 1GB.

NBA 2K7 will be released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and Xbox on September 25. The game is rated E for Everyone and retails for $59.99 on the Xbox 360 and $29.99 on current-gen systems. A PlayStation 3 version is also in development. For more information, read GameSpot's previous coverage.
