    The second post-release patch of substance for NBA 2K19 went live today. While the previous one was primarily just to make critical fixes, this update reduces the success rate for steals (widely seen as problematic since release), implements the new shot clock reset rule for this season, updates of jumbotrons for two teams, and provides a number of other improvements in addition to more fixes across the various modes in the game.  (more…)...

    Already having been (temporarily) found at a massive discount, NBA Live 19 can now also offer a series of improvements to the game that have some real substance behind them. While they won't help Live 19 become more of an NBA game, the update does fill in some of the gaps otherwise with the addition of player editing for Franchise Mode, the ability to practice on your created court with your created player, new signature animations for a number of players, and considerable tuning having been...

    The contraction of the sports video game genre within the last 10+ years has reduced the sports with competition down to only a few, and one of those has barely just hung on and isn't at all competitive. With that in mind, in soccer and basketball there are multiple options to consider spending money on, but consumers may already have pre-conceived notions of which they should choose while others may be up into the air as to a decision.

That was followed by almost two months of silence as promotional focus shifted to NBA 2K19. Today though the new official release date of October 16 (Xbox One, PlayStation 4) ...
