Within the next week, we’ll be sending in our main Wishlist materials for the next NBA sim from EA Sports. If you have any constructive feedback for the Dev Team concerning what you’d like to see improved, changed or added in the game, be sure to post it in our Wishlist thread as we’re in the process of finalising it; you can also send in additional feedback via our Wishlist Survey. If you’re a PC gamer, don’t forget to sign our PC Petition which aims to demonstrate our interest in a PC release for future NBA sims from EA Sports, beginning next year.
We’ll also be sending along our reactions to NBA 2K12, to give the Dev Team at EA Tiburon an idea of the things we like in 2K’s game as well as the things we don’t like, so that they can take that into account while developing their game. Please see this thread in the EA Sports NBA section of the NLSC Forum for more info and to post your feedback.
A huge thanks once again to everyone who has helped out with our Wishlist initiatives so far, hopefully we can have a positive impact on next year’s game!

A final 4% indicated they were most looking forward to something else in this year’s game.

GamesRadar have posted a review of NBA 2K12, becoming the first publication to award the game a perfect score of 10/10. The review praises NBA’s Greatest, enhanced gameplay, improved My Player and presentation in this year’s game, though the reviewer notably has not spent time with the game’s online modes.

The modding community is also gearing up to create updates for the game (at this time some tools still need to be updated), so stay tuned to the Releases & Previews section and look out for the first file additions for NBA 2K12 to be posted here soon.

With NBA 2K12 finally here, things are set to get really busy around these parts. Reviews, blogs and feature articles are pouring in, here are a few you may be interested in checking out.
First of all, ESPN.com’s Jon Robinson conducted an interview with cover player Michael Jordan, who spoke about his influence on the game, his satisfaction in how he is represented and his thoughts on the inclusion of the other legends involved in NBA’s Greatest. MJ notably expresses disappointment that Charles Barkley could not be included in the game.
GameInformer have posted their review of NBA 2K12, awarding it a score of 9.5/10 (the same score IGN gave the game) and dubbed it “the best basketball sim ever”. It does note issues with online play and bemoans the lockout’s effect on the game’s current rosters, but as the score would indicate it is an overwhelmingly positive review on the whole.
Finally, Ronnie 2K has also posted an entry over on the official PlayStation blog, detailing the PlayStation Move controls in NBA 2K12 and touting some of the key features of this year’s game. Discuss all of these articles in the NBA 2K12 section of the Forum and don’t forget to check out JaoSming’s impressions of the game right here on the main page, as well as share your opinions here.
