Justin Bieber To Make His Videogame Debut Courtesy Of 2K Sports For NBA 2K Franchise

While Lin is still rumored to be a candidate for the cover of 2K Sports NBA 2K13 or EA Sports NBA Live 13, 2K Sports has a secret weapon in the next round of basketball battle – Justin Bieber. (2K Sports, NBA 2K12, PS3, Xbox 360)

And sales plummeted.

man to be honest with you, if u wanna know the truth, it may be bitter depends on the person, the kid has a bazillion followers and likers on twitter and facebook, if anything, it might help to help sales, you'll see females melting to him while males make tons of funny youtube pranks and commentaries with him in the game

u see some people just love to hate him like he destroyed their lives, yeah it's freedom of speech everyone has the right to like or dislike something but not hating to a level where it make u look measurable and pathetic, emotions speak louder than words, the excessive and the unjustified hate towards Justin screams envy and jealousy, it is simply the sincerest form of flattery, cry me a river, gemmi a break, he's just a kid, lovin what he does, End....

agreed man. very well said. I dunno if people are envious of him but yea. what people don't know about this kid is that he's a multi-instrumentalist. while most homo sapiens can play one instrument okayish he plays many of them very well. people just hate, and don't understand.

I'm mosty into stuff like progressive/tech house and I don't like the music he's putting out now but he is talented no doubt. record labels are the ones who manufacture his image. all he's doing is doing what he loves and making money from it.

I don't have anything against him as a person. He hasn't really done anything despicable enough for me to really despise him.
However, I am going to say that I absolutely despise his awful music and how it seems to pop up everywhere, be it TV, radio and even movies.

Besides another terrible singing game what could he possibly be in?

What business does beaver have in any sports game? In any game at all...?
dorron  +   1277d ago
Won't buy anything where that sucker appears in...and won't buy anything from 2K anymore if this is true (which I really don't think it is...).

ZBlacktt  +   1277d ago
I laughed out loud. Thanks for the heads up on a game I'll never buy.
Emilio_Estevez  +   1277d ago
Idk why this is such a problem, they are not going to force you to use him. The fact of the matter is he was the Celeb game MVP last year and was all over the court.
Hicken  +   1277d ago
I'm with you. He's not that bad of a player, and he's a big fan of the sport. Plus it's not like he'll be the first or last celebrity in a game, sports or otherwise. It's sad, but the supposed grown men on this site have an unhealthy aversion to a young boy. I wonder if it's jealousy or something else...

I won't be buying it. I refuse to put my hard earned money into some no talent hack's pocket.

dcortz2027  +   1277d ago
I hate him and his crappy music. His fans are just as bad. 2K officially sucks now!
barb_wire  +   1277d ago
Wait... what?

Why?

hope this doesn't mean they're going to put his crappy songs on the soundtrack too..

I will wait for the EA basketball game.

Lol 2k just went from hero to zero in one sentence. Always used to respect them from the games of theirs I played but Justin Bieber in a game? No matter how you look at it, they're selling out their own fans.. I'm sure 99% of people who usually buy their game either hate the guy or have no liking to him what so ever.

Not to mention as a huge sports fan I find it extremely insulting that a developer of a respected series would add celebrities who have absolutely no real links to the sport. Seeing as I'm from England and only real game from them I buy is Top Spin, I certainly won't buy another product from them until they issue a public apology for insulting both their fans and the sport itself.
