It may not have been anticipated, but 2K Sports has revealed the cover athlete for NBA 2K10 Draft Combine. The downloadable offering is more of a start of the My Player mode and quasi-demo than it is a standalone game and will be available for the 360 on Wednesday August 26th for 400 MS points, with the PS3 having to wait until Thursday September 3rd for $5. Even though it is available only by download, by creating its own cover they will probably be offering codes to purchase in stores. The cover art will be used for promotion and to display the game in the marketplace.

Continue on to check out the full box art and leave your thoughts in the comments.

    It looks good and Rose is a perfect choice. This was a good move on 2K's part because it dresses it up and makes the download look like it's worth paying for….whether or not it actually is.

    I highly doubt a retail release with an actual cover. I think this is just to present a bit of hype and represent that it really is a full experience outside of 2K10 proper.

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/WWOFTBBNR WWOFTBBNR

      I'm pretty sure they'll do a retail release. I'm sure it will just be a cardboard box like Lost and Damned though.

    DERRICK NEEDS TO GET THE COVER OF EITHER 2k OR Live next year!

    HO HUM!!!!!!! Its 2k basketball. 2 things are a certainty. The game will be good and the game will be pretty much the same as the last 3 years. 2k fails year in and year out to wow its fanbase. They take for granted that they make the more authentic b-ball game but now adays that isn't good enough.

    EA might not be as good as 2k in the X's and O's of the game but they are lightyears ahead of 2k in terms of innovation and style.

    • Josh

      What good is innovation style when the fundamental gameplay is flawed? That's been EA's problem with most of their Next Gen sports games. They feed you gimicky features instead of focusing on what truly matters GAMEPLAY. Something 2K seems to understand but EA has yet to figure out. Seems like Live is finally on the right track but 5 years into Next Gen? Really EA? Maybe Live 2010 will finally catch 2K7.

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/jonathanglapion jonathanglapion

      yup and once gameplay catches up it's a wrap.

      • JJ85

        Do you really think that will happen? I'ma buy a unicorn farm while I wait.

        • http://intensedebate.com/people/jonathanglapion jonathanglapion

          yeah i do think it's going to happen. They may have already done so, we won't know until we can play the game. The one thing that will never really change is the 2k fanboys won't like live no matter how good it is. So you can by all the unicorns you want I'll be buying NBA Live 10.

          • boriC88

            Somewhere along the way in this new generation of consoles EA lost touch with what made them so sucessful in the beginning. I used to love live back in 95, so its not about fanboys its about reality EA has most definetly not caught up. They choose to improve on areas that don't matter and don't improve where they need to. 2k owns live, live barely just put out in hustle plays!! They can't be serious with this shit.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/jonathanglapion jonathanglapion

            DIFFERENT dev team dude, how many time must it be said. I'n fact you guys are downing gameplay and Live has a key figure from 2k handling the gameplay, are you serious? Do you guys some how thing Mike Wang suddenly forgot his job because he's moved on to a company you don't like. Hustle plays aren't in the game to catch up with 2k, they added them to give authenticity to the game play. So if we go by what you are saying 2k ripped Lives 365 feature with what they are adding this year. See how silly you sound. So 2k shouldn't at they feature because EA had it first….. LOL!

    Light years ahead in innovation and style?? Please embellish on that point, About the only thing EA has done to innovate has been dynamic DNA and that isn't anything special. What style? Shitty ass player models? garbage passing? robotic moves?

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/jonathanglapion jonathanglapion

      Dynamic DNA isn't anything special. A constantly updating sports game based on real life, nothing special? I could get with most of what you said until you dropped stupid on us.

      • boriC88

        Wow you get an update that can't transfer onto your franchise and gives you calculations on player trends… man I can go to espn for that shit. Jonathaorangatongsapian keep riding the EA dick STUPID!

    Even with the new videos that have come out for Live 10 I'm not sold. It still looks like the same ol' Live. The player movements aren't fluid. I'll be a 2K10 guy myself. I keep wanting to go back to Live but after watching the videos I just can't do it.

    I actually think this is a great idea. 400 points isn't much, and for b-ball junkies an easy purchase. I'm not a 2K B-Ball fan, but if I was I'd be picking this up.

    Pasta, why do you call it a quasi-demo? 2K has already said it's not a demo, but a stand alone game. Just more EA bias coming from you again. You should check out the blog post they just put up that talks about the Draft Combine game. It sounds really awesome!

      Ok that's why in the article it says… "who wants to get their hands on core NBA 2K10 game play before anyone else? If you fall into that category, we’re giving you that opportunity." Ok so it's basically a demo…

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/WWOFTBBNR WWOFTBBNR

      It may be a stand alone game, but it's not a FULL game.

    From the stand point of gameplay

    • Otis

      2K has said that there will also be a demo for the 2K10, completely separate from the Draft Combine game. The idea of the draft combine is to create your player and basically play a basketball rpg. The drills and gameplay are from the full version of 2K10, but it's nowhere near being a demo considering there will be a demo.

    2k10=2k9=2k8=2k7. Im not hating by any means but its looks like the same thing every year..They don't even try to make it look better.

    • JJ85

      You mean 2K10>2K9>2k8=2K7=2K6…. If you don't play 2K, do not make ignorant comments because they exemplify your stupidity. 2K9's graphics were FAR better than 2K8; matter fact 2K9's player models were MUCH better than Live. So you ARE hating or you have no idea what you are talking about.

      • http://intensedebate.com/people/gantous gantous

        your right, my 2k9 broke the other day so i was stuck playing 2k8 and 2k7 and it made me realize that 2k9 has way better graphics.

    The cover looks great! I may be picking this game up on PS3 this year instead of 360. I have both consoles, but the PS3 is a superior machine, and a lot of my friends have it now too….
