  • Players Recording Audio For Roles in NBA 2K15 MyCareer Mode
    Posted June 27th, 2014 at 1:15 pm 17 Comments »
    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
    Posted June 19th, 2014 at 5:15 pm 24 Comments »
    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
    Posted June 9th, 2014 at 8:30 am 25 Comments »
    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...
  • NBA 2K14 on PS3 Available for Free in June to PlayStation Plus Members
    Posted May 29th, 2014 at 10:45 am 4 Comments »
    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 ...
  • Details on Fourth Post-Release Patch for NBA 2K14 on PS4 and Xbox One
    Posted May 21st, 2014 at 9:30 am 9 Comments »
    2K Sports yesterday released a new patch for NBA 2K14 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It marks the fourth update to the game since its release with earlier ones having to address numerous serious issues. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions did not get a single patch as the company moved its focus almost entirely to the new systems once they had shipped. This patch primarily works to improve The Park mode, but also fixes a particular freeze bug in MyCareer, and prevents duplicate players from...

  • Fans Split Between Two Potential Replacements for Steve Kerr in NBA 2K
    Posted May 15th, 2014 at 10:00 am 24 Comments »
    The news yesterday that Steve Kerr has been hired as the head coach of the Golden State Warriors will have ramifications for the NBA 2K series going forward. Kerr has been part of the commentary team since 2K12. Unless 2K Sports had planned ahead for this possibility, knowing for a while the interest he had in becoming a coach, it may be too late to switch him out of 2K15 in favor of someone else. Regardless, whether this year or the next, it will have to be done. The poll posted two wee...
