NBA 2K12 PlayStation 3 Patch Out Now

The title update for NBA 2K12 that Xbox 360 users received last week is now available for the PlayStation 3 version of the game. As previously mentioned, the patch does not address any game mode bugs or gameplay issues but is rather intended to correct some online issues including disconnections, network errors and long waiting times when trying to find an opponent.

2K Sports are also currently collecting feedback for a larger patch that will rectify issues with modes and gameplay. Gamers are invited to provide feedback via the official forums, the Operation Sports boards or by tweeting Ronnie 2K using #NBA2K12Patch. Ronnie has indicated that the PC version will likely receive a combined patch at some point that addresses the online issues and includes the fixes of the upcoming patch.

NBA 2K12 Patch Out for 360; PS3 Coming Soon

2K Sports have released a title update for the Xbox 360 version of NBA 2K12, which is intended to address various online issues with the game. The patch does not contain any gameplay or game mode fixes, though it’s likely such an update will be made available at a later time. Ronnie 2K has indicated that the patch has been submitted to Sony, so PlayStation 3 users should be receiving it in the not too distant future.

Unfortunately PC users will once again have to wait for any kind of update, though Ronnie indicated on Twitter that the PC version “probably” would be receiving a combined patch at a later date. As mentioned in previous bulletins, official roster updates for all versions will have to wait until the lockout is over.
