Though it is still too early to tell whether 2K has another NBA champion in the making, they are on the right track by selecting champion caliber athletes to grace the cover of NBA 2K12.

I don't usually purchase yearly sports games back to back, but this is an exception. 2K11 reminded me of the No Mercy of the wrestling genre.

Keep up the good work 2K, you got my $$.

Yeah I don't really buy basketball games but I bought 2k11 and loved how it started off..

Can't wait to check out 2k12, I think I will get this one too...

Jordan on the cover seals the deal.. I think everyone weather you liked him or not, can understand what he brought to the game.. I grew up watching Jordan win his titles and I have not been that excited watching a game since he left the game...

Their have indeed been other stars but that, feeling of waiting to see what Jordan would do.. that was Amazing to watch..

So I think it's awesome that they put him on the cover again... Day-One buy

2K Sports laying the smack down! Just like they did when they had the NFL license as well. Took one hell of a game to put EA's Basketball game on hiatus.

Just think if we still had competing NFL games how good the 2K Football game would be?

2K Sports kill servers for NBA 2K12, College Hoops 2K8 and NHL 2K10

2K Sports seems to have pulled the plug on its old online servers. Users playing All-Pro Football 2K8, NHL 2K10, College Hoops 2K8 and the year-old NBA 2K12 multiplayer have noticed a lack of online support across the last three weeks.

... pulling the online MP from a game that's only a year old.

The box says it has an online MP mode, and I'm sure people are still playing 2k12 online (probably many people who aren't enthusiastic about the whole Jay-Z layer they vomitted over the game), so they should keep supporting the online MP mode for years to come.

I agree. 1 year is to short. The other gams I can understand since 08 is almost 5 years ago and as for their NHL title....well EA took them out of that genre with EA's NHL series.

Shutting down the servers is going to reduce their overhead costs so I see why as a business standpoint. I read that 2k won't be doing MLB titles anymore as well so expect MLB 2k12's servers to shut down in the year to come.

It's bad enough that we sports fans buy a new sports game every year with minimal changes other then the rosters....now we have no choice if we want to keep older titles to play online. Things like this will lead to more pirating of sports games. Nobody want to be forced to pay $60 for a game and then have the servers shut down a year later giving you no choice but to buy the next $60 game. People are going to look for other ways around having to pay full price for a new game because their money for the current game didn't stretch out for more then a year.

That is real cheap on the part of 2K sports..I'm sure many people enjoyed playing 2K12 online and it just came out last year...

bubblebeam4258d ago

Why is this not illegal? When are games going to be treated seriously by the law? If this happened with anything else, people would be up in arms wanting blood.

I think the only fair thing to do is that when people buy these games, included in the sticker price is a bond. After the servers shut down, 2K (in this case) have to pay them the bond back, whether it be bank deposit or game credits.

I think next-gen developers are going to be doing this to many more games. It basically forces you to buy the newer one. Why people still buy these games is outstanding. Have they no freaking morals?

Psychotica4258d ago

Not sure but I think the back of the box says they can disable the online part anytime..

DeadlyFire4258d ago

I was going to buy 2k12 this year and play it online haha.

I think one year is absurb. The typical console server shutdown is 2 years, but hey on PC I can run my own server for any game anytime.

Psychotica4258d ago

So keep this in mind if you are thinking about buying 2K13..
