Take-Two Interactive has confirmed the previously reported release date for NBA 2K13, as well as the platforms it will be available on. The game will indeed hit stores on October 2nd 2012 and will be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PlayStation Portable and PC. This is obviously excellent news for the growing NBA 2K modding community and should hopefully allay any lingering concerns about the future of the series on PC.
EA Sports have not yet confirmed the release date for NBA Live 13, however based on previous years it is highly likely that it will be coming out the same day. The platforms that NBA Live 13 will be available on also remain unconfirmed at this time, with some pre-order listings suggesting versions for the PC and Wii along with the expected Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 releases, while others only have 360 and PS3 listings. We hope to have more info soon, needless to say many of us here at the NLSC are hoping that this is the year that the series returns to the PC platform.
