Wii U Version of NBA 2K13 Receives Official Patch

NBA 2K13 Wii U - LeBron James & Kevin Durant

The Wii U version of NBA 2K13 has received the official patch (v1.02) that was made available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game last month. The patch contains several tweaks, fixes and updates for gameplay, MyCAREER and Association, and will be pushed through automatically as long as your console is connected to the Internet. For a laundry list of all the fixes, please see below.

There is still no word on the patch for the PC version, beyond Ronnie 2K’s speculation that the PC will be receiving a combined update once all the planned updates for the console versions have been released.

IGN names NBA 2K13 Best Xbox 360 Sports Game of 2012

NBA 2K13 - LeBron James

IGN have started handing out their end of year awards and have named NBA 2K13 the Xbox 360 Sports Game of the Year. They referred to the game as “the latest in a Jordan-esque dynasty of hoops greatness”, touting the pre-game and mid-game animations, attention to detail in the presentation and the inclusion of the Dream Team as some of the highlights of this year’s game.

Do you agree with the pick? Would you have selected a different Sports Game of the Year, on Xbox 360 or otherwise? Let us know in the comments below and be sure to join in all of the NBA 2K13 discussion here in the NLSC Forum.
