  • 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. That makes the Legend Edition $64 and the standard edition $48. While the Legend Edition will also be made available ...

    NBA 2K's social media accounts have always toyed with the emotions of the community, whether ignoring legitimate concerns about the products, taking shots at competitors, or pushing promotions that cost them nothing but force engagement ending with only a select few being rewarded. The latest controversy though relates to the a failure to live up to a promise and many are expressing frustration with the treatment they've received on social media.  (more…)...

    With the licensing in place for 10 universities to appear in NBA 2K16 it's surprising that it took all the way until March for some official gear to show up in the game's 2K Sports Store. Today the first two college-licensed articles were added for purchase with in-game currency. Available now is a Steph Curry Davidson Wildcats jersey and a James Harden Sun Devils jersey. They both cost 5,000 VC. The jerseys can be worn by MyPlayers in MyPark and MyCourt. NBA 2K16 features Arizona,...
  • NBA 2K16 may be getting a Steph Curry patch
    Posted March 11th, 2016 at 11:30 am 4 Comments »
    Earlier this week on the Press Row Podcast two NBA 2K gameplay developers joined the show to discuss the development challenge that Stephen Curry has become for prestigious video game series. Curry hasn't relented since and on Wednesday night made another absurd shot from beyond half-court. He's now shooting 68% on shots from 28-50 feet out. The subject of getting his virtual self right isn't going away, and 2K Sports is working towards giving Curry the abilities that he has in real life i...
