NBA 2K13 Official Trailer (VIDEO)

It’s almost time.

Excited for NBA 2K13? If, for some insane reason, the answer to that question is no, the above trailer—crated by Momentous—should change that. Check it out.

    You crazy if you don’t like this song. I think the track list for the soundtrack is sick.

  • Royal

    Javale’s team was probably losing by 30 when he did that off the backboard dunk lol

    looks dope!

  • trent

    This just made me happy. Think I’ll play some 2K12 in the mean time just to rev me up

  • The Big Cheese

    No sign of the Brooklyn Nets anywhere in the trailer?

  • Caboose

    Just a couple improvements they NEED to address:
    1. The free agency system in Association mode.
    2. In-game grading system in My Player.
    3. Defense glitch where you run alongside the ball handler and force the ball out of their hands every time.
    4. Ball handling system.
    5. Create draft busts and gems.
    6. Tone down the ability of defenders to pull a Spiderman on every pass.
    Just minor things that would really make the game better. I have high hopes.

    Doesn’t look like gameplay has changed much for 2k13 compared to 2k12…i hope 2k doesn’t “Madden” out on us

  • Rainman

    this is looking dope

  • Vikturus

    I don’t get why the graphics of all nba games are so horrible.. Yes, haters are gonna hate.

  • Junior Taylor

    Great points. Have the correct speed for each players and we are good to go. You can not have TChandler running stride for stride with Rose on the break.

  • davidR

    the free agency trades in association mode are ridiculous

    All I ask is that 2k gets some reliable servers for online play.

    1 – they have implemented all new salary and rule changes
    2 – they have addressed the grading system. to what extent, i’m not sure
    3 – The defense is much much improved. Real Physics. When a defender gets beat by a quicker player, he’s beat for good.
    4 – Ball handling has been moved to the right stick.
    5 – idk how they would do that.
    6 – Ties into 3.

    they fixed this issue as well.

  • davidR

    good! my player got drafted by the pacers as a PG. half way into the season, our gm basically traded away all our bigs for SGs. our starting frontcourt was:
    SF: wilson chandler
    PF: quentin richardson
    C: james posey

  • Caboose

    Awesome to hear. How do you know that?

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    http://www.operationsports.com/games/891/nba-2k13/ – aka a lot of reading and watching Developer news. Because I’m a crazy person.

  • Gab

    IDK if to cop 2k13 but the early reviews so far have been good. And the soundtrack sounds really good so far.

  • Bravo

    Man I just hope the controlls aren’t confusing. Seems like they added way more buttons to press for certain things. I’ll wait till the demo to decide

  • Patrick Jackson

    Do what i do and get the pc version:)

  • David Noel

    HILARIOUS, HILARIOUS. This comment was hilarious.

    technically they fixed the issue with an update to 2k12. just if you started your myplayer before the update then you didn’t reap the benefits. my first myplayer had a similar issue except i was playing PG on the Warriors and the team acquired Ty Lawson for Monta Ellis. We had my player, Steph Curry, and Ty Lawson lol – but since the update i created a new player and haven’t had that problem at all.

    Gotta love the same graphics engine as nba live 2004 haha. Seriously it’s 2012 Durant has t-rex arms and Love has muscle definition. Two things that will never happen in real life.

    if a game comes out every year it will not be much different than the year before. use your brain, try and figure out if it makes sense that a video game can be completely rebuilt and improved on in a damn year.

  • L Dribble

    Or Lin? Not that I’m advocating that. Or did I miss him throwing the ball into the crowd trying to connect with Asik?

    Idk man, nothing beats the original NBA Live ’95 for the Super Nintendo. And Ken Griffey Baseball..

  • Dagger

    Just guessing: they need realistic/distinct face/body models for 500 NBA players, plus coaches/personnel. On top of that, at any point dozens of said player/coach models, plus dozens, possibly hundreds, of fan-templates in the stands are moving independently. That takes a lot of work, and a lot of processor power. To some extent: same reason that the Call of Duty games look like crap compared to Skyrim. Often more things are happening on-screen, and with the pressure to release a new title every year the developer doesn’t have the time – and teams of artists – Bethesda had with, for example, Skyrim.

  • The Seed

    I will kill with the Hornets.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/GametimeWeezy Gametime

    Have they even released their jerseys yet? If so I gotta see this..

  • BossTerry

    I hope they add more 90s players.. Barkley,KJ,Marjle,D.Robinson,LJ,Zo,Bouges,Richmond,Dream,D.Manning,Webber,Strickland,Cheany,Coleman,K.Anderson……Bradley, to name a few.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    With all the cuss words they censored in “Victory,” they might as well have used just the instrumental…
