    One would think that publishers would be laying low right now on the the monetization front with pressure from legislators that could potentially lead to the banning of any form of in-game monetization. Despite that Take Two and 2K Sports especially have always pushed the boundaries more than others and another example of that has reached mainstream status. Frustration has grown and manifested itself in massive discussion threads at Reddit, all over social media, and with articles on a nu...
  • Get NBA 2K19 on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for Three Bucks
    Posted June 6th, 2019 at 4:30 pm No Comments »
    NBA 2K19 is currently being sold for the remarkably low price of $2.99 on Xbox One & PlayStation 4. The official Microsoft page updated earlier to the price that almost amounts to giving the game away and Sony has since followed suit. At first this seemed almost certain to be a pricing error. Never has an NBA 2K game been offered for so cheap, on PlayStation 4 it was still listed at $60, the game had yet to drop below $18 in any deal prior, and neither Microsoft nor 2K Sports were pro...

While Anthony Davis ended up staying put in New Orleans leaving the Lakers with little to show for their efforts, the 76ers, Raptors, Bucks, and Magic all made significant acquisitions in the Eastern Conference. Philadelphia added All-Star snub Tobias Harris (86 Overall) to...

  • James Harden gets a big ratings bump from latest NBA 2K19 roster update
    Posted January 11th, 2019 at 1:45 pm No Comments »
    The first roster update of the new year for NBA 2K19 has delivered a big shift at the top of the player ratings. James Harden has been on fire for the last month and has been rewarded with a two point boost taking him up to 96 Overall. That's good enough for the second-highest rating in the league (tied with Kevin Durant in that spot) only trailing LeBron James. The 96 Overall for Harden is actually the rating that he had at the start of the season, which was followed by a drop down to 94...
