Take-Two annouces that NBA 2K17 is the publisher's best selling sports game ever, while NBA 2K18 is expecting to be the largest contributor to sales in the current fiscal quarter.
That's amazing numbers for a sport that is not really big outside the usa
It's pretty big in China and Europe.
I forgot about china but is it really big in Europe? Never thought it was ide say Ice hockey was bigger in Europe than basketball but I maybe wrong.
NBA basketball or just basketball in general?
Basketball, they have the Euroleague, which is the second best league behind the NBA
I mean basketball in general I know the NBA is big outside the us just like the nhl and NFL but I just did not think it was a big sport in Europe you don't see much on tv and uses although I do live in the uk where we only show Football Rugby Cricket and golf haha.
That's great! Domination that I don't always agree with but support in this instance. Just think what **NFL 2K17** or **2K18** would be selling by now. If I were Take Two, I would have showed up at the NFL's doorstep every year with NBA sales and showed them what type of quality and advertising of their game they lost by accepting the EA monopoly.
Speaking of NBA, is anybody going to stop in the middle of playing basketball on a court to play it with their friends on Switch like in the unveiling video
Yeah after a few games you tired, but you don't want to go back home so you sit on a park bench and get a game or two while everyone still outside
I really hate when I hear my grown behind friends say... you trynna hoop today? and they are talking about playing 2k... I'm not old, but I do know back in my day, saying you wanna hoop today meant go outside/gym and play ball in REAL LIFE. lOl. 2k has ruined the world lOl... However I still rock with 2k, best basketball experience you can ask for in gaming and it's only getting better however 2k9 is still my favorite.
Well that is unfortunate. I am a life long baller, currently a university coach and a life long competitive gamer. With that being said this game is so overrated I can barely stomach it. It looks great, but the animation heavy gameplay controls itself as much or more than the player and I feel like I have to fight the game constantly to do what I want. I can see why casuals eat it up, but for hardcore competitors it's a nightmare. Worse yet is the game is a complete money grab building the game around grinding and forcing people to spend extra money on vc. The lack of competition has allowed them to make very few truly enhanced gameplay features for several years while becoming more greedy than ever. With such great sales expect that current trend to continue. I will not preorder this game. On the flip the new live is looking surprisingly great and a free demo drops on August 11th. Can't wait to try that out and give me a different option for my basketball fix.
