    2K Sports today released the first trailer for NBA 2K15. The game is right in line with the typical marketing schedule which has produced trailers in the past in late August. Gameplay videos out of Gamescom and a new super-customizable offline franchise mode are all that has really been revealed to date. The trailer includes the usual flash but more notably the presence of a studio show featuring Ernie Johnson and Shaquille O'Neal. ComplexEmbed.Application.initialize({cId: "VseDJ1bzrViJTB...
  • Gameplay Videos Out of Gamescom

    A number of off-screen videos have emerged from Gamescom for NBA 2K15, NHL 15, FIFA 15, and PES 2015. It's bizarre that companies allow such unflattering footage like these videos present to become what for many is the first impression of how the games look and play, when they could put out a high quality polished video under their own control that highlights improvements. However it hasn't seemed to do any harm in the past considering this is the nature in which NBA 2K's first gameplay has ...

    2K Sports today revealed the full listing of songs included on NBA 2K15. Last month the company announced that Pharrell Williams selected the tracks this year, coming off previous editions of the series which had soundtracks that were put together with the help of LeBron James and Jay-Z. 2K15 features songs from Red Hot Chili Peppers, One Republic, Snoop Dogg, A Tribe Called Quest, No Doubt, The Black Keys, and many more. ...

The first segment is primarily about Madden's upgrades and what might still be lacking while the second examines how 2K Sports is putting effort into Franchise with MyLeague in NBA 2K15 while EA Sports believes its relevance is slipping and instead is shifting focus to othe...

    The latest Press Row Hangout was recorded on Friday night and tackled many recent news stories of significance. In one segment from the show the panel raves about the lasting enjoyment of MLB 14: The Show, the next relates to the big ruling yesterday in the Ed O'Bannon v. NCAA case, and the final one runs through a number of topics in a "Lightning Round". Those include the changes implemented by Twitch, Zynga announcing two mobile sports games, and The Golf Club's release likely falling on o...
  • O’Bannon Wins Case Against NCAA

    The judge in O'Bannon v. NCAA has ruled that the NCAA violates anti-trust laws by preventing players from being paid for their name and likenesses. This does not appear to be a ruling however that threatens the core of the NCAA - one in which some surmised a more devastating ruling could bring down the organization entirely. It's certainly far from the worst case scenario for them. That could be a good thing for the future of college sports video games depending on how the NCAA attempts t...
  • Gameplay Being Emphasized Over Modes With NBA Live 15

    EA Sports has been largely quiet in regards to NBA Live 15. The game skipped E3 and outside of some examples of enhanced visuals the campaign to promote the new game seems to be more about apologizing for the last one. Yesterday Game Informer posted an article noting some of the ways the company hopes to improve with Live 15. What's evident is how gameplay is the priority though it was said to be last year as well. Certainly that needs to make a dramatic jump for Live to even be a consid...
  • NBA 2K15 Getting New Offline Association Mode on Xbox One and PS4

    2K Sports today announced a mode for NBA 2K15 called MyLeague exclusive to the Xbox One and PS4 versions. Operation Sports has a detailed interview that goes over everything and offers a few other pieces of relevant information. MyLeague is essentially a more customizable version of the Association mode that was lost with the transition to the new systems where MyGM replaced it. Unfortunately the mode is offline only but on the plus side the number of options are staggering and it doesn'...
  • First Footage from NBA 2K15 is a Slow Motion Kevin Durant Highlight

    2K Sports generally releases an official trailer for the upcoming NBA 2K games in late August. They got a jump on that today by pushing out a clip (PS4/XB1) likely pulled from that future trailer through cover athlete Kevin Durant's Instagram page. Unfortunately that means it's limited to 15 seconds and isn't great quality, but it still represents the first look at the game which doesn't even have a screenshot out with just over two months until release. There's not much to go on from the...
  • Crew Mode Returns – For Real This Time – With NBA 2K15 But Only Last-Gen Consoles

    Posted August 5th, 2014 at 4:45 pm 42 Comments »
    Last year 2K Sports announced the eagerly-anticipated return of Crew mode to NBA 2K14 on 360 and PS3. The mode had been stripped out after 2K11, without any sort of notification to fans, which created quite a bit of animosity. 2K did those people no favors however when it turned out "Crews" was nothing like the Crew mode they wanted back. Today the company announced proper "Crew" mode is returning in NBA 2K15 but only to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It's fairly rare to see any yearly s...
