    Over the past six years MyCareer became the the most popular way to play the NBA 2K series and today the trailer was released for the mode which goes international and to the G League before reaching the NBA. "The Way Back" stars Anthony Mackie along with some other recognizable faces from Hollywood. In addition, cut scenes will finally be skippable, resolving a longtime complaint from fans of wasted time and diminished incentive for starting over with a new character. The Prelude, which ...

    With the exception of last year's edition 2K Sports has been involving big names from the music world to help craft and promote the soundtracks in the NBA 2K series. Those have included the likes of Jay-Z, Pharrell, and Imagine Dragons. Today the full soundtrack was revealed for NBA 2K19, which features a playlist purportedly put together at least in part by rapper Travis Scott. Listen to the soundtrack on Spotify which features all 47 songs. (more…)...

    For years now NBA 2K has offered the ability to customize courts (and surrounding elements) for expansion teams and use in its online Pro-Am Mode. NBA Live 19 will introduce its own court customization, and though impressive will find the creations restricted to usage in private online games and practices in The One mode. With just over three weeks to go until release, and 11 days until the demo, EA Sports continues revealing more features for NBA Live 19's Career Mode which was unquestio...

    In what's become a trend for the series, the first information on the upcoming NBA 2K games centers on its set of franchise modes. It's leading with a strength, albeit one that isn't always seen as the most marketable aspect of sports games. Today 2K Sports revealed the details on MyLeague and MyGM for NBA 2K19 and as fans have become accustomed to, it's a wealth of new features and added depth that are unmatched in the genre. 2K19 will finally include a true online franchise as MyLeague ...

    When NBA Playgrounds 2 was delayed just five days before it was set to release back in May, one of the most plausible theories was that developer Saber Interactive was being acquired by Take Two/2K Sports. Two months passed without a single word from the team behind the game which made it likely that the silence was due to some form of private discussions taking place. Today we found out that the reality is along those lines as the arcade series is now going to be published by 2K Sports and ...
  • How to pre-order and save big on NBA Live 19

    Last year EA Sports attempted to entice consumers to try NBA Live 18 by aggressively dropping the price post-release. Prior to that though they also hoped to generate some pre-orders by discounting the price of the game for day one down to $40 (it went up to $60 upon release). Even at the lower price it was probably asking too much to expect all but a few to commit to a game that wasn't guaranteed to be up-to-par given the history of the series over the last decade. Now though, coming off...

    NBA Live 19 wasn't able to generate much buzz out of EA Play, despite some announcements related to features for the upcoming game that had little to do with the actual NBA. The series was able to get back onto solid footing last year but even while EA was practically giving it away it didn't gain a whole lot of traction with consumers. Strengths are looking to be capitalized on with NBA Live 19 by expanding The One career mode while introducing Real Player Motion, the new animation technolo...
  • NBA Live 19 cover athlete is Joel Embiid

    The last few years has seen EA Sports attempt to attract consumers with cover athletes that would go on to win league MVP in James Harden and Russell Westbrook, but the NBA Live series is going back to its traditional roots of selecting a young player still very much on the rise as Joel Embiid will appear on the cover of NBA Live 19. Embiid would seem to be the ideal representative for the series given his social media reach, likable and scrappy personality, and his place on a team that r...
