NBA 2K12 My Player Mode Details

Posted September 9th, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Though the big story has been the revelation that NBA 2K12 will not include incoming rookies 2K Sports has closed the week by releasing extensive details on the My Player career mode which may help to soothe over some of the frustration of that situation. Of course not having rookies means entering My Player alongside generated characters so that’ll even have an impact here too – however there are several new additions that will attempt to make for a more compelling experience.

My Player will feature expanded off-the-court presentation with events such as team interviews, mock draft, NBA Draft featuring commissioner David Stern, and the Hall of Fame induction. Contracts come into play as they “money” earned can be spent on improving attributes and obtaining signature animations. Structure wise there will be a single game played to help determine draft status, and there is no “sim” option to run through a season. Instead the optional “Play Next Key Game” feature will be the way around that as it will present only the most critical match-ups over the course of the season to play while skipping over the others.

Check out the full developer blog posting for a complete break down of what to expect in My Player mode this year – and as always leave your thoughts in the comments!

          He said My Player sounds pretty good & it’s gonna take up a lot of time on both his PS3 & Xbox 360. He also he agreed with what josh said about why can’t madden do these type of things. Meaning until they fix Franchise or Superstar mode the way NBA 2k12 has done, he’s not going to buy Madden or NCAA in the foreseeable future.

    Say what you will about 2K Baseball, but these boys don’t appear to be resting on their laurels in Basketball.

    They are going at the MLB The Show for the The best sports game title.

    • shadowman

      funny how everyone gives them props for Basketball, and are willing to overlook their horrible baseball game! NBA2k is good..not perfect…but very good, they could step up their baseball game, but i guess basketball is their marquee game!

      • Sdot

        XACTLY B-BALL / FOOTBALL IS WUT 2K IS GOOD AT

        EA HOCKEY & SOCCER IS WUT DEY GOOD AT

    inevitably this mode becomes a drag. it just does. a lot of that is what they had last year too. im just having trouble getting excited about the game since it has last years rosters.

    The game looks great. I may hold off however until the lockout gets lifted…I just can’t get in the mood unless the season is happening or about is about to.

    • Smsixx

      sorry for typo **or is about to**

  • DaGreat

    I don’t have a problem with the lack of rookies in NBA 2k12 regarding My Player mode because I always had a problem with how the draft worked out before. If you performed well in the combine and were drafted in the first round, shouldn’t that mean that the rest of the draft would be changed and the entering rookies would be on different teams? In year’s past, it didn’t. At least this way the entire process is authentic.

      Also, the mode looks sick!

  • Thecordcutter

    Will the players (such as Deron Williams) that have signed with international teams be available on 2k12?

    • Sdot

      YEA HE WILL STIL B ON DA NETS N 2K12

    i see this and i see 2k hearing out the fans, pisses me off when i look back @ madden superstar this year.

    • 12345

      Completely right. Hate EA for the lack of effort they’ve put into a mode that is clearly KILLING for 2k.

  • Newmanator892005

    This game will only be good if its not racist and let’s you create a white player for my player mode

      youd have to come from over seas otherwise that just wouldnt make sense.. you can be mixed tho ex. blake griffin.

      you’re an idiot………………………….. *face palm*

  • Modman

    I am not really into this feature in this game but I think this could be a separate game and still make money. What an improvement from year to year! EA could really learn from this…

  • The Dominator

    No NBA season means no updated rosters….I will just play NBA2k11 for my basketball fix.

    • Sam

      craaazyyy….. 2K12 is mindblowing this year, daz for sure… I got bored of 2K11. as soon as 2K12 demo drops, I will remove 2K11 from my hard drive…

    Even if you fanboys don’t like 2k, you have to admit that they put in
    more work than EA ever has on there products. Look, I understand that
    both are just companies that want are money but, I feel like 2k(as far
    as there basektball title) really strives to give the better experience.

    The developers keep saying they want to top them selves from
    last years version, I believe it. They don’t have to constantly
    advertise the “Authenticity” promos for me to see there real goal.

    I
    know this has nothing to do with Madden 12 but, EA Tiburon has cleverly
    engineered there in game glitches and problems. Madden 11 is better
    than ’10 and 12 is better than ’11. Why cause they want to “improve”?
    NOOO! It’s cause they plan out what there going to do for the upcoming
    years.

    I wouldn’t be surpirsed if they already knew what they were doing with Madden 14 and 15.

    Most
    of the homers and fanboys complain that “well your servers are
    garbage”, I don’t play online much but, I play enough to not be
    complaining about it. Should they improve there online servers? Ofcourse
    but, honestly if I were given the choice of better gameplay or better
    online play, I’m taking better gameplay cause unlike most of these
    whiners I can deal with out online play. I want a game to be good off
    line.

    I don’t think online is the most important feature in the
    world. I’m a guy that enjoys offline gameplay, offline multiplayer. I
    enjoy it and I would never put online play over the improvement of
    gameplay.

    Call me a homer but, I’m really exited for the improvement of My player mode.

    • Tip

      Agreed. I don’t play online that much either and would MUCH rather have a better OFFLINE experience with any sports video game. To many jerks and assholes online anyway and all they do is ruin the experience for you. Ever tried to play Fight Night online? It’s a fuckin joke the way people play and act! Rarely do you come across a guy that’s gonna play (and act) like he has some sense. The only time I play online is with a handful of friends that I know will play the game right and won’t do all the bullshit cheesing and cheating that most online idiots do anyway. 2K strives for quality gameplay and a great OFFLINE experience, and that’s where the focus should be first and foremost. 

  • Showmann6

    anyone know’s when the demo is gonna drop

  • Jgard_7

    • black guy 73

      THEY CANT DO N E THING ABOUT ALL STAR WEEKEND EA OWNS  THE RIGHTS TO THE 3 POINT SHOOTOUT DUNK CONTEST AND THE SKILLS CHALLENGE HENCE Y 2K HASNT FIXED THE ALL STAR WEEKEND

  • Ian

    Can someone help me? The draft order of my player is terrible. After finishing 2 seasons, I noticed that the draft order is shit.. The #1 pick goes to 76ers all the time and #2 with the bobcats, the draft order is alphabetically arranged.
