Sports video games are trying to become more and more realistic. Next year's crop of games are going to continue that trend. I've compiled a list of the changes that I believe we can expect to see next season:
MLB 2K8: They're including a few new cheat codes. If you type in HGH, your entire team's bodies blow up (and their head's shrink) and they all automatically are able to beat Hank Aaron's home run record.
NBA 2K8: The 2K franchise is changing. You are no longer limited to having to play with only 30 NBA teams. You can now have 31 to choose from. That's 30 original NBA teams... or the referees! Hint: Playing as the referees will result in an automatic win. If you play referee in career mode, you can unlock the Tim Donaghy achievement!
NHL 2K8: You can play an exhibition game, career mode or choose the new option and simply postpone the entire season since nobody notices it any way.
Madden 08: They are including a Michael Vick dog-fighting mini game.
