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...
