List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for PlayStation 3 at some point.

If you owned a PS3 at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few Basketball games in your collection. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best PS3 Basketball games of all time. Basketball video games have always been a big thing, but with the stunning graphics and effects available on the PS3, the games have never been better. 

This list will feature the most popular and best selling Basketball games that were released for PS3. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. This poll features NBA Live 08, College Hoops 2K7 and more.
