NBA 2K13 Sells Well

2K Sports announces that NBA 2K13 is selling at a far faster rate than its predecessors, saying the pro basketball simulation sold through at an almost 50 percent greater rate than NBA 2K11 in its first week, with international sales up 66 percent over that title, which set the benchmark for the series. "Our early sales figures are a validation of our ongoing efforts to push this franchise to new heights," said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. "We owe it to our great fans to continually improve our title - year in and year out - and that’s exactly what we’ve done with NBA 2K13."

Hopefully this means better competition for EA Sports in the future.

Considering 2k/Taketwo already canned the rest of their sports line due to not putting the money and development improvement needed into the games to compete with EA, both NHL2k and MLB2k were essentially last gen port jobs that never progressed on this generation of consoles, I wouldn't hold your breath.

The only sports title Visual Concepts has put any effort into is NBA and that's only because NBA Live was so terrible for so long people wanted an alternative.

This will mark the second year in a row EA does not release a basketball game. I would be very surprised if Live/Elite doesn't come back for next year and give NBA2k a serious run for it.

They are probably just going to wait to release the next NBA Live/Elite until whenever the next gen consoles arrive. I kind of expected them to make one this year because the Wii U is releasing, but I guess they are gonna wait on Sony and MS.

That very well might be what they do at this point. Totally off topic but I just hope EA doesn't reboot NHL again on the next batch of consoles, because for a series that has been around for 20 years now, they pretty much have the closest to perfect hockey game we're prolly ever going to get.

I would hate to see all that work since NHL 07 get tossed out just due to a new console cycle.
