Hot on the heels of NBA 2K6, NBA Live 06 is now available in fine (and probably some not-so-fine) stores everywhere.

Other improvments include a better transition game, better looking players, and enhanced presentation. The big addition to the game this year is new freestyle control where players can control passes, dunks, rebounds, shots and steals with the flick of a stick.

NBA LIVE 06 is available for the PS2, Xbox, GCN, and PC. The PSP gets its very own version on October 18, and the Xbox 360 Live 06 will be out this November.
