NBA 2K10 Patch #2 Now Available (360)

Posted January 20th, 2010 at 11:53 am

The second patch for NBA 2K10 that was released for the PS3 earlier this month went live for the 360 this morning. The patch attempts to address various issues with the game that are most concentrated in My Player mode and online play but other areas have been worked on as well.

Continue on for the full list of changes that are intended to occur due to the patch. From following the PS3 response the online modes that were unreliable or didn’t work at all before have not improved all that much and early reaction from the 360 side is similar. For those with the 360 version make sure to leave your thoughts in the comments on the  effectiveness of the patch.
