NBA 2K13 Motion Capture Talent; Forum Section Launched

Not many details on NBA 2K13 have been revealed or hinted at as yet aside from community manager Ronnie 2K looking to recruit various celebrities for an as yet unnamed NBA 2K related initiative, as well as Justin Bieber’s inclusion in the game. As with NBA Live 13, we probably won’t be getting a whole lot of information until E3 next month.

However, yesterday Ronnie Tweeted an interesting tidbit, revealing that Dion Waiters and Austin Rivers (son of former NBA player and current Celtics head coach Doc Rivers) have provided motion capture for NBA 2K13.

With NBA 2K13 news likely to start coming out in the near future and plenty of fun to be had speculating on the game and discussing what we’d like to see, we’ve gone ahead and added an NBA 2K13 section to the NLSC Forum. Join in the discussion today!

New NBA 2K12 Official Roster Update (May 9th) Now Available

Another official roster update for NBA 2K12 has gone live today, with rosters accurate as of May 9th 2012. The update will come through automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 is connected to the Internet and your game is up to date with the official patch. The new rosters can then be accessed by using the Reset Roster function under the Options menu.

PC users who would like to update their game manually can download this pack, which I’ve updated with the latest roster and online data files. As previously noted by the NBA 2K Insider, the Playoff roster updates do not contain any ratings adjustments, just updated rotations to reflect the latest injuries and lineups.

NBA Live 13 Video: Kyrie Irving & Ricky Rubio Visit EA Sports

EA Sports have posted a behind the scenes video of Kyrie Irving and Ricky Rubio’s visits to the EA Tiburon studios during the 2012 All-Star Weekend in Orlando, where they met with the NBA Live 13 development team and had some hands-on time with the game. While the video doesn’t contain any gameplay footage, you can catch a quick glimpse of one of the developers working on Kyrie Irving’s cyberface.

New NBA 2K12 Official Roster Update (May 5th) Now Available

A new official roster update for NBA 2K12 has gone live this weekend after all, containing rosters accurate as of May 5th 2012. As always, you should receive the update automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 is connected to the Internet and your game is up to date with the official patch, however you must use the Reset Roster function under the Options menu to load the new rosters after the game starts up. PC users who would like to update their game manually may use this pack, which includes the latest roster and online data files.

As per the NBA 2K Insider, roster updates during the Playoffs will only include changes to lineups, so it seems there will be no more adjustments to player ratings this season. Anyone unsatisfied with any player ratings will have to make changes themselves or download an unofficial roster update.

NBA 2K12 Official Roster & Online Data Pack Updated

It doesn’t appear as though a new official roster update for NBA 2K12 has gone live as yet today, however earlier in the week a few new shoes came through via the online updates.

If a new roster does come out this weekend, I’ll be sure to update the pack again as soon as possible.

Remember that you can receive the updates automatically on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as long as you are connected to the Internet and your game is up to date with the latest official patch.
