New NBA2K9 Info

1.) If a player hits a game winner, does his team celebrate?
A.) Yes.

2.) How has the association mode been upgraded? With no College Hoops 2K9 this year, have their been any major changes to the association mode that would enhance the draft portion the association mode? We've spent a lot of time this year with The Association, hence its moniker, The Association 2.0.

A.) Our philosophy with the experience this year was to 'bring it to life' while adding Authenticity on the level of magnitudes. Franchise modes have been guilty for years of delivering a very dry experience where information was delivered to the user via buried menus. NBA.com, which we believe will change the way content is presented to the user in all franchise modes, is at the heart of the mode delivering every fateful twist as it happens. Detailed information on The Association 2.0 and the rest of its features will be coming your way sometime next week. Sit tight, it will be worth the wait.

Frustrating moments in video gaming

Video games are meant to be challenging but sometimes 'challenging' becomes frustratingly impossible. Off the top of my head these are the games that really pissed me off. This is based on personal opinion but feel free to ridicule my choices and add what you think are frustrating moments in gaming.

Speculation: NBA 2K9 Vs. NBA Live 2009

Resume Play - Stephen Rosenberg writes "The NBA season starts in October, and aside from maybe Rich, I'm probably the only one on Resume Play that cares. However, it is my job to bring a little bit of sporting games into this nerd fest of a site. Along with the new season comes to releases of NBA Live 2010 and NBA 2K10. I've had almost a year of fun and excitement from these games and there is a constant debate about which one is better. Most of the people that side with the live games only play the live games, and likewise with the 2K series. I have owned NBA Live 2009 since the release date, and only just picked up 2K9. I am a dedicated NBA fan and pay attention to lots of small details, so I will take those into count. I think you'll be surprised by my comparison. I have been a live buyer for the last three years, but before that I was a 2K series buyer, and even before that, I was a live buyer. Here's my professional Resume Play writer comparison of NBA Live 2009 and NBA 2K9."

Although Basketball isnt big over here, and the videegames for them are select sale only, If it gets a 5/5 off resumeplay (And Stephen no less) then I guess it must be worth a look into :S

Be warned, if it sucks I'm coming after you =D

Update: Just played about 10 mins out of it...it is good...carry on

SRosenberg5223d ago

Really? Select sale only?

That is crazy. I figured they'd be pretty popular everywhere.

Thanks for the Euro-info. :)

Goodness, games have come a long way from NBA Jam. I have watched you play these, kinda, and I didn't know there were any differences... lol. Good story.

SRosenberg5223d ago

You really only notice the difference when the person you're playing online is down by 1, shoots the ball from out of bounds and it magically goes through the backboard and in the net, and you lose.

Then you really notice.

You notice even more when they send you a message that says "ha ha you lost".

I can't even begin to count how many times I've heard "Off the penetration!" from Live.


EA Sports Working Hard to 'Close the Gap' Between NBA Live and NBA 2K

Last year's NBA Live got a 77 on Metacritic. 2K Sports' NBA 2K9 received a total of 84 on Metacritic. It's been a consistent pattern for years. The NBA 2K franchise continually outscores EA Sports' competing NBA Live series. Later this fall, the two franchises with once again battle each other on the virtual court, but EA Sports President Peter Moore is expecting a much tighter basketball showdown this year.

SO they know that the game has been crap. EA has been too lazy for too many years. So 2k is just going to sit on their asses and let Live beat them???

drdre745260d ago

2K is good about being hush on whats new in each years game. Online was the only thing wrong with 2k9. I hope they fix the lobby and make it so you can send a game invite to a friend on the ps3. I hate having to tell someone to go in the lobby and hope nobody joins the game before the person I'm waiting on comes in. Plus they need to add back the half time shows and the intros lol! i miss that from the old dreamcast versions.
