Balancing gameplay with Jay-Z: NBA 2K13 [Interview] (IncGamers)

IncGamers: When you’ve got a formula that works as well as that of the NBA 2K series, you could argue that it would make sense to just leave it alone – keep the gameplay the same, just update the players, teams and game modes.

By changing or adding anything to that winning setup, you run the risk of altering the balance and diluting what has made it so fun in the first place. 2K Sports, however, don’t do that with the NBA 2K franchise. NBA 2K11 was amazing, people said it wouldn’t be better. Then NBA 2K12 came out and it was better.

With NBA 2K13 2K Sports seem to be doing the same thing; adding new content in a bid to improve the name, at the risk of altering the delicate balance they’ve found in recent years.

We speak to 2K Sports’ Chris Snyder about this, as well as just how some guy named Jay-Z (executive producer on NBA 2K13) is involved. (NBA 2K13, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
