Someone has to be the top team, right? It's more surprising that the Mavericks are so low, considering the problems with the teams ahead of them.

And Dirk rated an 85? He willed the Mavs to a championship!

Btw, I'm a Knicks fan, and they're right where they belong. 18th...

Lebron is the most over-rated player in the history of the game. he might be rated a 90+ in the first 3 quarters. but he drops below 50 in the 4th. I'll skip out on 2k for this year... the devs are clearly mad miami fanboys

Skip_Bayless4666d ago

It's called 2k12 for a reason. The miami heat are gonna win the finals in 2012 and Lebron will season mvp and finals mvp.

"The shocking reveal is that when the game is on the line in the 4th quarter the Miami Heat team rating drops to 30th in the league."

LOL!

Jobesy4666d ago

You really can't call any team overrated or underrated as there is no NBA so far. I can understand the Heat being rated the best as they have great individual players, but the ratings don't account for heart which the Mavs have more.

The nba is truly a top heavy...league..i would honestly say 6 teams are in serious contention

iceman064666d ago

The ratings, as always, are based on last year's season. My only issue is that when you look at Miami as a complete team there are some gaps that don't make them (IMO) #1 overall. Yes, they have the "big 3" (some would say part II). But, after that I believe that the bench is pretty limited in comparison to a Boston or the Mavs (who actually get back a serious starter that was injured for the playoff run).

How the hell are the Clippers 17th?

HeavenlySnipes4666d ago

play well together and make it to the Finals? Maybe they should lower Kobe's clutch to zero also for leading his team to an impressive 0-4 in the SECOND ROUND with no injuries to any of his teams and a champion caliber team

iceman064666d ago

Clutch has more to do with those final shots at the end of a quarter than stepping up in complete games (at least in 2K). The Laker's problems had more to do with Pau not showing up than Kobe disappearing. He was a defensive liability and then didn't really put up his "usual" numbers on offense. Also, Miami really didn't play well as a team. However, they have 3 All-Stars to make up for it by individual performances (2 of which are probably top 15 in scoring in Wade and James). When they learn to play together, they will probably run the rest of the league off of the court.

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.

Lvl_up_gamer4247d ago

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.

NYC_Gamer4247d ago

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...

bubblebeam4247d 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?

Psychotica4247d ago

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

DeadlyFire4247d 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.

Psychotica4247d ago

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