The Insight also confirms that the DLC will be available November 29th and provides seven new screenshots, which you can check out here in our gallery.

NBA 2K12 Legends Showcase Videos

GameSpot have provided five gameplay videos of the Legends Showcase downloadable content for NBA 2K12. The videos show clips from a halfcourt 2-on-2 game, a full court game, a 1-on-1 game between Michael Jordan and Julius Erving, a game of 21 and a game of H.O.R.S.E.

Check out all five videos below and add your thoughts in the comment below or in this thread. An official release date for the Legends Showcase is still yet to be revealed, with 2K Sports mentioning that it will be out “this holiday season” for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of NBA 2K12. You can also check out a list of the 45 new players that will be available in the DLC along with the official teaser trailer here.

NBA 2K12 Mod Tool Released – 3D Support

The NBA 2K12 Mod Tool has been released and it seemingly fully supports NBA 2K12’s iff files with not only texture support, but model support as well.  The tool allows patchers to modify face, stadium, floor and accessory models, as well as most everything else.  I have yet to find a texture or model that is not supported.  It also supports NBA 2K11 iff files for those who are still playing that game.

Make sure you have your Java updated, head into the Downloads database to get the tool, and drop by the Forum thread to say thanks.  I’m hoping to get a tutorial out today detailing the installation and modifying process with this new Mod Tool and Blender.

NBA 2K12 Legends Showcase Impressions (GameSpot & GamePro)

Hands-on impressions of the upcoming Legends Showcase DLC for NBA 2K12 have been posted over on GameSpot and GamePro. In addition to some new screenshots, both provide a rundown of the various modes that will be available including the Era Challenge, Teammate Challenge and HORSE. The GameSpot article also confirms that aside from the ability to play unranked online games with the NBA’s Greatest teams, the DLC’s modes will only be available for offline play.

The Legends Showcase will be available this holiday season for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation versions of NBA 2K12, though no official release date has been revealed as yet. Community Site is Up and Running

A little more than a month after the launch of NBA 2K12, the new community site has been launched. It allows users to add friends, compare stats and view videos and screenshots uploaded by other members. You can also manage your account, add Facebook/Twitter/YouTube accounts and even delete any duplicate accounts if needed.

Players reject deal, 2012 NBA season in jeopardy

Players have rejected the league’s “take it or leave it” offer that was presented last week and will now move ahead with dissolving the union, which will allow them to file an antitrust suit against the NBA. While the move is intended to give the players more leverage, it has also placed the 2011-2012 season in serious doubt.

This obviously means that the planned official roster updates for NBA 2K12 and NBA Jam: On Fire Edition will not be happening anytime soon and we can expect to see more games cancelled in the near future. What’s your take on the situation? What do you make of the offer that was on the table? Add your thoughts in the comments below and join in the discussion here in the NBA & Basketball Talk section of the NLSC Forum.
