    how come the ds doesnt have some nba goodness?

    the 3 on 3 foot ball,soccer,we even have a port of madden but no nba?

    i played some of the 3 on 3 soccer and it has good graphics and they could implement it on a basketball game

    sooooo why ea sports? why are you depriving us of this?

    It's the DS... what do you expect? All Nintendo's sports games are BS Mario stuff. [​IMG]

    Actually, Some of those "BS Mario Stuff" are Nintendo's greats.
    Take Mario Tennis and Mario Golf, for example.
    Heck, even Mario Baseball on the Cube was pretty good.

    They just made Mario Basketball too gimmicky.

    Camelot should make another Mario sports title.
    Maybe Mario Football, Mario Hockey, Mario Chess ..

    Oh, Hadrian, since you're in the know of most things,
    has there been any word at all for a Mario Tennis DS Release?

    Are you talking about the same EA that complained over a year before supporting Xbox Live, like most publishers didn't include online mode in even Madden of all things for Gamecube, never released even one Dreamcast game during its entire lifespan, doesn't fix obvious and easily reproduced silent crash to desktop bugs in some of their PC games...

    I would love NBA on the DS. The only DS basketball game I've played was Sight Training. The game is not about basketball; just one of the exercises. Pretty decent if you ask me...

    If FIFA and Pro Evo made it to the DS, why not NBA???

    Honestly, I'd assumed that there was an actual game for the six major sports. I never noticed NBA's absence from the system. Sorry, for all you sports games fan.

    You know... DS doesn't have a proper NHL game either. Backyard Hockey is the only one, and I don't think it's too popular around here.

    Also no boxing game with real boxers on DS. AFAIK.
