Each step of the play is illustrated with a different graphic, so its easy to execute a play precisely. When playing with two or more people on the same team, PlayVision indicates where the gamers need to set up their players to execute the play. College Hoops 2K8 will be available this fall for the Microsoft Xbox 360 home video game console.
