    Posted March 24th, 2016 at 5:00 am 11 Comments »
    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…)...

    Posted March 18th, 2016 at 12:15 pm 1 Comment »
    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,...
  • The O’Bannon lawsuit now moving towards possible Supreme Court hearing
    Posted March 15th, 2016 at 2:00 pm 6 Comments »
    An appeals ruling last September in the Ed O'Bannon vs NCAA class action lawsuit complicated the potential return of college sports video games. District judge Claudia Wilken had initially ruled in favor of the plaintiffs, finding that the NCAA violated antitrust laws and that college athletes should be able to receive up to $5,000 a year in deferred payments. The District Court ruling had made it possible for the likes of EA Sports to pay into a trust that would have been dispersed to pl...
  • 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...

  • Stephen Curry’s season now trails only peak Michael Jordan for best ever in NBA 2K16
    Posted March 3rd, 2016 at 5:45 am 13 Comments »
    It's been such a remarkable season for Steph Curry that developers are struggling to find a way to fit what he does into simulation video games and there are no simple solutions for how to deal with him. In NBA 2K16 he reached 99 ratings in both three-point shooting categories earlier this year but even that isn't close to doing him justice. Today Curry rose a point to 98 Overall in NBA 2K16. That establishes him to be playing, at this point in time, at a level only exceeded in history by...
  • Aaron Gordon rewarded in NBA 2K16 after spectacular Dunk Contest showing
    Posted February 29th, 2016 at 12:15 pm 3 Comments »
    While 2K Sports tries to figure out what to do with Stephen Curry, which has proven to be a real dilemma for the developers, the regular roster updates for the game have continued with ratings adjustments taking place for players across the league. Aaron Gordon, who wowed at the Dunk Contest a couple weeks ago, received a 10 point upgrade in the Driving Dunk attribute. Prior to the update he had been rated in a tie with 15 other players as just the 17th best dunker in the game. At a rati...
