To date, the next-gen basketball battle has been strictly a one-on-one contest, with 2K Sports' NBA 2K6 and Electronic Arts' NBA Live '06 tipping off against each other for the Xbox 360's launch. A third game is getting ready to play pickup, as 2K Sports has announced that College Hoops 2K6 for the Xbox 360 has gone gold. Already released on the Xbox and PlayStation 2, College Hoops 2K6 for the Xbox 360 will sport some exclusive features, including more detailed player models and fully 3D crowds and school bands. Carrying over from current-gen versions will be online play, the new strip 'n' rip system, and the shot stick. College Hoops 2K6, due to dribble into stores March 7, is rated E for Everyone and will retail for $59.99.
