You Can Scan Your Face Into NBA 2K15

As revealed by a new short trailer for NBA 2K15, players will be able to scan their face using the PlayStation Eye into the game's MyCareer mode for the very first time.

 

Perhaps taking a cue from Kinect Sports Rivals and other titles with Kinect-enabled Game Face technology, NBA 2K15 will ask players to place the PlayStation Eye about six to twelve inches from the camera, rotate their head each way about 30 degrees, and then wait thirty seconds for the game to render a 3D model of the player's dome.

Unlike other titles, though, players can tweak the rendered face further from the front or profile view and adjust the face as you would expect from a deep customization mode. The menu reveals options for hair, facial hair, features, and head presets.

There's no word yet on whether the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of NBA 2K15 can use the Kinect, in lieu of the PlayStation Eye, for this game-face feature. NBA 2K15 will release October 7 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
