    This year's crop of EA Sports games have been discounted leading up to and through release by Amazon. Madden NFL 20, NHL 20, and FIFA 20 have all been offered for just $50.94. Now a new promotion from the online retailer brings NBA 2K20 into line with those others. Rather than the lower price (likely not permitted to by the NBA/2K) Amazon is providing a $10 promotional credit with all physical copies for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Amazon Prime membership is a requirement...

What appears on the surface to be a rush to make changes has led to many to question what appears to be the complete reversal of ...

    The demo for NBA 2K20 has gone live on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. In recent years 2K Sports has referred to the early start with the upcoming 2K title as the "Prologue" but it appears that moniker has been dropped as the story mode no longer plays a role. Unlike previous years you won't be able to begin the narrative-driven MyCareer mode and have all the progress made (in an abbreviated beginning segment) carry over to the full game if purchased. This year's story stars Idris Elba an...

They won't be ones however that feature either Charles Barkley or Reggie Miller who remain the most prominent holdouts among legendary players. Two relatively recent champions join the group and the others are meant to be showcases for certain intriguing players given that they were al...

    It had become apparent in recent weeks that something was going on with NBA Live 20. Despite a nearing release date the game had not been officially announced or made available for preorder. Additionally the NBA Live website had been been completely scrubbed and contained only a single static non-game image and a roster update with next season's transactions was pushed out in Live 19 which typically would have been held for the next edition. The reasoned speculation was put to rest today ...

Having acted as an alternative Franchise Mode with the option of a narrative path to compliment the more customization-based MyLeague, MyGM will now look to provide a far different experience and one that is considered to be more accessible.
