    Another month down, and another month of great sales for NBA 2K14.

    In February 2013, 2k13 was ranked 4th for the month while Madden 13 placed 10th.

    In the new NPD data released this week, 2k14 moved up to 3rd place for February 2014, while Madden 25 failed to chart. I love it.

    Great to see 2k not missing a beat with their sales figures. I’m a huge Show fan but SCEA really has their work cut out for them this year if they want another Best Sports Game of the Year award. 2k14’s going to be awfully tough to beat.

    Those LA Kiss uniforms are an abomination against Jeebus. WOW!
