    Last week it was revealed that NBA 2K16 would be among the free games for June with PlayStation Plus subscriptions on PS4. Today the offering has gone active and is expected to be available through July 4. Those with PS+ can download the game and keep it for as long as they have an active subscription.

  • NBA 2K17 to release in mid-September; $100 special edition announced
    Posted June 2nd, 2016 at 6:30 am 23 Comments »
    Even without a basketball competitor on the market, and an array of other sports games releasing from the end of August through September, the NBA 2K series continues to push its release date forward and put distance between itself and the start of the actual season - the opposite of what every other sports gaming franchise has done in recent years. Just two years ago the standard for NBA games as mandated by the licensing agreement was to go out on the first Tuesday in October, and now ...

    In April it was announced that the special "Legend Edition" of NBA 2K17 would celebrate the career of Kobe Bryant. The standard edition of the game however will feature a current player - Paul George of the Indiana Pacers. It's no surprise that George was the choice considering his relationship with 2K Sports.

  • NBA 2K16 will be free to PlayStation Plus members on PS4
    Posted May 31st, 2016 at 11:15 am 33 Comments »
    The free games that are provided monthly as a part of the PlayStation Plus service have helped justify the costs beyond the ability to just access online features on the PlayStation 4. Very often they've been compelling titles and even included brand new ones like Rocket League. Sony today announced the lineup of games for June, and while it's unclear what date they'll be first made available for free (possibly tomorrow) the big news is that NBA 2K16 is one of them! Sports games have gene...
  • The latest patch for NBA 2K16 quietly extended Steph Curry’s range
    Posted May 12th, 2016 at 12:00 pm 2 Comments »
    Earlier this season the now back-to-back MVP Stephen Curry received ratings upgrades in NBA 2K16 that established him as the best shooter in the history of the NBA. His 99 rating for both Standing and Moving 3PT was well above the next highest in those respective categories. Despite that he was mostly unable to hit shots from the absurd 28-50 foot distances that he was making at a 70% clip in the actual real-world games. In an interview with 2K developers Mike Wang and Sean O'Gallagher t...

    Yesterday 2K Sports announced the Kobe Bryant Legend Edition of NBA 2K17, and given the way he went out in his final game they couldn't have written a story better for promotion of the upcoming product. It's not just the special edition that has gone up for pre-order however. The standard edition of the game is also available, and both are 20% off for Amazon Prime members.
