NBA Today Will Have 66 Game Season In NBA 2K12

Ronnie 2K has posted a couple of Tweets here and here answering questions about the 66 game schedule being patched into NBA 2K12. Ronnie has confirmed that NBA Today will reflect the lockout shortened 66 game schedule, while mentioning that it is impossible to implement for My Player, Association and Online Association. NBA Today games are currently following the original 2011/2012 season schedule.

For what it’s worth, EA Sports patched the abbreviated 50 game schedule for the lockout shortened 1998/1999 season into NBA Live 99’s Season Mode, which led to speculation that 2K Sports might be able to do the same with NBA 2K12. It is understandable that they cannot, however; beyond any technical limitations there’s also the tricky situation with multiseason play in Association and My Player, which would need to revert to 82 games from year two onwards. Selecting the 50 game schedule in NBA Live 99’s basic multiseason mode – the precursor of Franchise and Dynasty Mode – locked the user to playing 50 games for each of the ten years. Such a situation would likely be unappealing to most NBA 2K12 players, ultimately detracting from the realism in the long run.

Fourth Official NBA 2K12 Roster Update Released

The official roster updates for NBA 2K12 continue to come daily in the lead up to the 2011/2012 season, which is set to tip off just a little over a week away on Christmas Day. The latest update includes the blockbuster trade that sent Chris Paul to the Clippers and a few more rookies, though Richard Hamilton is still a free agent rather than being on the Bulls’ roster. Gilbert Arenas is back in the free agent pool after appearing on the Magic’s roster in the last update.

Please see below for an updated list of transactions and included rookies through the latest update. Remember that you may have to use the Reset Roster function under the Options menu to access the updated rosters. In my experience, I’ve usually had to reset the rosters twice to get the new rosters to show up. I would also recommend saving the new rosters once they’ve loaded.

NBA 2K12 Patch v1.04 Out Now For Xbox 360

The Xbox 360 version of NBA 2K12 has now received the official patch (v1.04), which corrects various issues with gameplay, online modes, My Player and Association. You will be prompted to download the update automatically as long as your Xbox 360 is connected to the Internet, so as with the official roster updates there’s no need to go looking for it. The PlayStation 3 version of NBA 2K12 received the patch yesterday and the iOS version has also been updated, however there is unfortunately still no ETA on the PC patch.

You can check out a laundry list of fixes included in the official patch here and share your impressions of the patch here in the NLSC Forum.

Third Official NBA 2K12 Roster Update Released

The third official roster update for NBA 2K12 has now been released. It includes the latest transactions such as Vince Carter signing with the Mavericks and the Mavericks’ trade of Rudy Fernandez and Corey Brewer to the Nuggets, while also adding more rookies including Enes Kanter, Jan Vesely and the Morris twins for a total of 20 rookies added to the roster so far.

See below for an updated list of the transactions that have been included as of the third roster update. Remember that the rosters are downloaded automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 is connected to the Internet, so you don’t need to go looking for them. However, you may have to use the Reset Rosters function under the Options menu to initially load them and saving the rosters afterwards is recommended. If you’re playing the PC version, be sure to grab this fix to resolve the issue with incorrect arm textures for the rookies.

NBA 2K12 Patch v1.04 Coming Tomorrow (Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3)

2K Sports have announced that the big patch (v1.04) will be released tomorrow for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of NBA 2K12, while a patch has already been released for NBA 2K12 iOS. The patch will contain fixes for several issues with online play, gameplay, My Player and Association including problematic trade logic, quirks with block and steal attempts, the problem of unlocked NBA’s Greatest teams becoming locked again after exiting another game mode and much more.

See below for a complete list of issues that will be addressed by the patch, as well as a list of the updates included in the iOS patch. Unfortunately there is no ETA on the patch for NBA 2K12 PC at this time but judging by last year’s release, I’d once again speculate that we could be waiting until sometime in January or even February for the PC patch to arrive. As soon as any further details are made available, we will be sure to post them.

Second Official NBA 2K12 Roster Update Released

The second official roster update for NBA 2K12 is now available. Once again, the update should be downloaded automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 is connected to the Internet, however you may need to use the Reset Rosters function in the Options menu to access the new rosters. I would also recommend saving them afterwards.

The second update contains a few more transactions that have occurred in the past couple of days as Lamar Odom is now with the Mavericks, David West is with the Pacers and Chauncey Billups is with the Clippers. The latest rookies to have signed contracts have also been added including Kemba Walker, Derrick Williams, Jimmer Fredette and Brandon Knight. It does seem that some rookies have issues with their arm textures but if you’re playing on PC, you can download this update from JaoSming to fix the problem.

First Official NBA 2K12 Roster Update Released

The first official roster update for NBA 2K12 has now been released, following hints last week that the update was right around the corner. The roster is not completely up to date as certain deals were not made official by the time the update was finalised but a few rookies that have signed contracts and the earliest offseason transactions have been included. Ron Artest has also been changed to Metta World Peace, though it seems the game only includes appropriate PA audio for his name change as the commentators still refer to him as Artest or just “Number 15”.

You should receive the update as long as you have an active Internet connection on your PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, however you may need to select Reset Rosters from the Options menu to access the new rosters. Another update is expected to be out within the next 48 hours, in the meantime you can check out a full list of changes in the first update below.

First NBA 2K12 Roster Updates Could Come This Weekend

With the offseason now officially underway, players are beginning to sign with teams, trades are going through (with the exception of yesterday’s controversial situation) and rookies are officially joining the teams that drafted them. The NBA is back!

This also means that the first official roster updates for NBA 2K12 will be coming soon, quite possibly this weekend according to a Tweet by Ronnie 2K. The updates will not contain any gameplay or game mode fixes – that update will be coming later – but will include rookies that have signed contracts and all other player movement that has been made official as of the time an update is finalised and released. As noted in Ronnie’s Tweet, Ron Artest’s name will also be changed to Metta World Peace with the first update.

In the meantime, you can check out a screenshot of Kyrie Irving in a Cavaliers uniform over on the official NBA 2K Facebook page that has been posted as a teaser for the updates.

New CBA Ratified, Big Moves Already Reported

The NBA’s owners and players have approved the new labor deal, officially bringing an end to the NBA lockout. Free agency will begin tomorrow with several players having reportedly already agreed in principle to deals with new teams. In huge news, the Los Angeles Lakers were reportedly set to acquire Chris Paul from the New Orleans Hornets in a deal that would also include the Houston Rockets, but the league has since blocked the deal.

Don’t forget you can discuss all the latest moves and rumours in the NBA & Basketball Talk section of the NLSC Forum. Roster updates for NBA 2K12 and NBA Jam: On Fire Edition should also commence shortly, though please note that rookies cannot be added to the rosters until they officially sign with their NBA teams. I also expect to have roster updates for NBA Live 2005 through NBA Live 08 out at some point, though I cannot set a specific date at this time.

EA’s NBA sim still on track for 2012 (ESPN.com’s The Gamer)

NBA Elite 11: Kevin Durant

ESPN.com’s Jon Robinson has posted a short article on EA’s next NBA sim game, which will be released October next year in time for the 2012/2013 NBA season. There isn’t much to report at this time but the article does include some quotes from EA Sports president Andrew Wilson, who reiterates their goal of bouncing back strong after a two year hiatus for the franchise.

“Anytime you’re looking to reboot a franchise, you’re looking to find a different type of creative energy,” Wilson told me as I sat down with him at a recent EA Sports event. “When we rebooted the ‘FIFA’ franchise, we introduced a whole new team that rebuilt that engine from scratch. We did the same for ‘NHL.’ We completely rebooted and rebuilt that game with a new creative team.

“And while the ‘NBA’ creative energy could’ve happened anywhere, it just so happened that we had some developers in the EA Tiburon studios who were very, very passionate basketball fans. The Orlando Magic literally train 100 yards from our studio there, so we have a big basketball culture built around that creative energy, and what we will deliver will be a fantastic game.”

As soon as details begin to emerge on the game – most likely early next year – we’ll be sure to report them. We’ll also be looking to set up some developer interviews and other preview features as in previous years, so keep it locked right here at the NLSC. We’ve already submitted several Wishlist materials to the new development team at EA Tiburon who were very receptive to our feedback, so hopefully we can do our part in helping the series can make a strong comeback next year. Feel free to post your thoughts in the comments below or in this thread; you can also check out our main Wishlist here and our supplementary Wishlist materials here.
