2K Sports has today announced the 2K Reelmaker for NBA 2K7. The 2K Reelmaker allows players to create their own unique “highlight reels” which they can then upload and share with their friends through Xbox Live. The 2K Reelmaker for NBA 2K7 is available now on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 400 MSP (£3.40, â‚¬4.65, $5).
Erik Whiteford of 2K Sports said:
“To enable our fans to show off their gameplay highlights, we created 2K Reelmaker exclusively for Xbox Live. 2K Reelmaker is a robust video editing feature that gives our fans the ability to impress their buddies playing NBA 2K7 with self-edited clips of their best replays. 2K Sports has always delivered the most innovative and entertaining sports titles to gamers everywhere and now with Xbox Live, our work can continue even after our games are in the hands of gamers.”
While the idea isn’t exactly “unique” (Burnout Revenge allowed players to upload replays), it’s a first for a sport game. The 2K Reelmaker also goes one better than Burnout by allowing players to add effects, such as speed changes and sound samples from the in-game commentary. Expect to see plenty of lay-ups, back doors and hook shots appear on Xbox Live soon.
NBA 2K7 is due for release in the UK on October 27th, why not pre-order it now from one of our affiliates?
