    With just five days until the scheduled release of NBA Playgrounds 2, developer Saber Interactive has come out to announce that the game will in fact not be making that date. The delay is currently unspecified in both reason and length but they're hinting at something new being worked on behind the scenes that could affect the upcoming game or have influence on the franchise as a whole going forward. We’ve got some news to share, but we want to start by saying ‘good things come to those...

    While it was always clear that developer Saber Interactive had a long term plan for the NBA Playgrounds series it came as somewhat of a surprise to find it now as an annually released title. Arcade-style games are few and far between these days, but featuring the official league license is a big selling point that most games of this nature wouldn't have behind them. NBA Playgrounds showed a lot of promise and post-release support was strong which bodes well going forward. Now the first vi...

    A week ago NBA Playgrounds 2 was officially announced with a stated summer release window. That would have put its landing date between June 21st and September 22nd. The game may actually be a spring release instead with Gaming Tailgate first spotting the PlayStation Store product page which includes its apparent release date and pricing. If the Sony page for the game is accurate - and considering they are taking pre-orders it seems reasonable to assume that it is - NBA Playgrounds 2 will...

    Arcade sports games have been making a comeback in recent years due to the efforts of independent developers and that continues as NBA Playgrounds is getting a sequel sooner than many would have anticipated. The first NBA Playgrounds released last May at an attractive $20 price point. A specific release date and pricing details for NBA Playgrounds 2 will come later but the summer season means it'll be out between June 21st and September 22nd.  (more…)...

    One of the bigger complaints with the design of NBA Playgrounds relates to the manner in which players are obtained. Playing the game leads to earning new card packs, but it's completely luck of the draw and at a certain point duplicates end up taking over the openings and frustration sets in if seeking one or more specific players. Some people may have received the player/s they wanted most right away and others may still be waiting for them to fall into their laps. Saber Interactive has...

Those include additional versions of current players plus legends from the past including Tim Duncan, Baron Davis, Jerry West, and Elgin Baylor. Also notable is that p...

    It has been a difficult process for developer Saber Interactive with NBA Playgrounds on Nintendo Switch since releasing on May 9. The game shipped without online functionality and consumers were promised that would be patched in within a few days. Due to technical conflicts with Nintendo over patch size it ended up taking two months with that update now finally here. This is simply the first patch that was submitted for the game way back in May. Besides online it also includes new players...
