NBA 2K8 Achievements sponsored by Sprite?

by JW


Xbox360Achievements has posted the complete list of achievements for the upcoming 2K Sports basketball sim NBA 2K8.There are a total of 50 achievements for 1000 points.

Most of the achievements are your typical basketball affair. Scoring 30 team assists in a single game, or having 15 team blocks will net you 20 points apiece, while achieving a certain “scoring line” (points, rebounds, assists) with a particular superstar will net you 25. (Example: Recording 35 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists will unlock the LeBron James achievement)

One of the more interesting achievements is the “Sprite Slam Dunk”, which you unlock when you win the Sprite Slam Dunk contest with LeBron. What makes this interest is that, to my knowledge, this is the first time I’ve ever seen a sponsor for a Xbox 360 achievement. I’ve heard of them being in games in the past, but I’ve never SEEN one in a game until now. Personally, I think it’s rediculous. I’ve been one who’s been against in-game advertising for a long time, but even those who approve of such advertising have to admit that this is a bit excessive.

Ok, I’m an idiot — I completely forgot about Fight Night Round 3. So there’s one.
