Ships Ahoy - NBA 2K13

2K Sports announces the release of NBA 2K13 in North America, saying the latest installment in this basketball simulation is now available for Windows, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, and PSP. Most of the announcement touts the game's celebrity mogul: "NBA 2K13 represents the greatest year-to-year leap we have made in the franchise’s history," said Greg Thomas, president of product development for 2K Sports. "Our partnership with JAY Z brought a new dynamic to the game, and really elevated it to new heights." The Wii U edition will launch in North America along with the new console on November 18th, and the console editions are expected to launch in Europe on November 30th. The new installment also includes new mobile options:

2K Sports recently announced NBA 2K Everywhere, giving fans the opportunity to experience NBA 2K virtually anywhere via an all-new mobile companion application, a social game on Facebook, and a full-featured mobile version of NBA 2K13 for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices. NBA 2K Everywhere will extend the NBA 2K experience by offering players greater flexibility, more variety and new ways to play, at home or on the go, with these all-new social and mobile games. Additionally, both the mobile companion app and Facebook game enable players to feed data and experience right back into NBA 2K13 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, introducing a new level of connectivity and continuity to the NBA 2K experience.

I did hear they have Charles Barkley in the game at last. That peaked my interest somewhat, as he was my favourite way back when.

I could never handle how the 5 vs 5 basketball games played though, they were always so monotonous. 2 vs 2 or 3 vs 3 ala NBA Jam or Street is where it's at for me.

It has a 1v1 / 2v2 / 3v3 / 4v4 / 5v5 mode for any players. I personally like to be locked to one player, makes it much harder to win games but feels more like i'm playing a basketball game and not an arcade game.

I get this every year....on PC no less. Apparently the digital download for the pc is delayed until like Oct 18th, yet you can buy the boxed PC version now.... Ya well that didnt happen...

So far the animation is actually light years ahead of last. Game seems much more fluid. As for the old classic teams, there is where the dissapointment lays. No Kareem, No Dr. J, Starting rosters are wrong on a few current teams (Shane Battier @ PF! WTF). That said the gameplay is much better, and the MyPlayer now MyCareer mode seems a little bit improved (although not much).

I give it 2/3 Meh's

I kept seeing commercials for this last night while watching 'Family Guy' on TBS and thinking, 'Didn't they cancel this?'. Then I realized it was EA's NBA LIVE that was cancelled...not that I care either way, I'm not a basketball fan in the slightest. Just confused...
