Not only the number but the location of the outlets is important.
Apparantly you are planning on somewhat using the basement otherwise
you would not bother to finish it.
If you are planning on an entertainment center you may wish to cluster
some outlets and/or install two duplex outlets together for the TV,
VCR, DVD player, amplifier with surround sound.... Have four plug-ins
right there! OTOH a single duplex may be all that is necessary if you
will be plugging the devices into a surge protector.
If you will be having a mini bar with refrigerator and microwave these
devices should be on their own separate circuits.
