    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

    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...

    The decision has finally been made - LeBron James is going back to the Cleveland Cavaliers. James spent four years in Miami after crushing Cleveland's spirit, getting to the NBA Finals every year and winning two championships. The details of the contract with the Cavs are still unknown. This single signing will have a monumental affect on the balance of power not just in the NBA but in the video games as well. The Cavs will go from being one of the least used teams to likely the most used...

    Many have recently expressed frustration with a lack of information on NBA 2K15 whether that be on social media, various forums, or in direct correspondence. The fact is though 2K is right on track with their usual marketing schedule by only having put out official releases on the pre-order bonus and cover athlete by this point in the year. (more…)...

    Real audio was introduced to post-game interviews in NBA 2K14 and that helped establish just how well fans respond to hearing the actual voices of the league's stars. For NBA 2K15 there will be voiceover work completed by a number of players for MyCareer mode which glaringly lacked them for all but your created player in 2K14. The audio will accompany the roles and storylines that involve the respective players. Operation Sports noted all the various tweets over recent months that featured ...
  • Details on More of the Visual Improvements for NBA Live 15

    Posted June 24th, 2014 at 12:45 pm 23 Comments »
    EA Sports today released a new developer blog and video detailing enhancements to graphics that have been made for NBA Live 15. Prior to E3 the company released the first image which showcased six player faces that had been dramatically improved due to the head scanning process. Areas that have received significant work besides the player likenesses include arena lighting, jerseys, shot clock, shoes, and LED boards. The poor visuals were far from the only thing wrong with NBA Live 14...
  • EA Sports Hopes To Make College Football and Basketball Games in the Future

    In testimony earlier this week in the Ed O'Bannon case vs the NCAA, an Electronic Arts representative expressed the desire the company has to develop college-based video games in the future. Joel Linzner, EVP of Business & Legal, stated EA would be "very interested in acquiring the rights" of players to use in the games. Of course this would require the NCAA to remove most if not all restrictions on the "amateur" status of athletes which is what the class action suit is attempting to...
  • First Image from NBA Live 15 Shows Off Scanned Player Faces

    The poor visuals particularly for a title that was built for the next-gen consoles, with players that often looked nothing like themselves, were a barrier of entry for many when it came to NBA Live 14. It was tough enough to justify buying Live over 2K14 considering everything else but when the graphics couldn't even compare that made the decision that much easier for consumers. Rather than talk about NBA Live 15 at E3 today - no matter what claims were made they would have been dismisse...
  • NBA 2K15 Pre-Order Bonus Detailed

    Posted June 5th, 2014 at 10:15 am 17 Comments »
    2K Sports today laid out the details on the pre-order incentive being offered with NBA 2K15. Last year had the "King James Bonus Pack" and this time around it's the "Kevin Durant MVP Bonus Pack". This bonus is expected to be retailer wide rather than differ based on where the game is bought and hopefully will be offered to those who digitally download as well. To no one's surprise Virtual Currency is involved, however the presence there doesn't necessarily mean 2K is continuing on with t...

    Sony today announced details on the PlayStation Plus content coming to members for free in June. Among the games being offered is NBA 2K14 on the PS3. Subscribers of PS+ will be able to download it for free during the month and then keep it as long as membership is current. The PS3 and Xbox 360 version of NBA 2K14 was quickly forgotten by 2K Sports, who moved all attention to the Xbox One/PS4 version immediately after release and never provided any further support for it. However some ...
