It'll be fun to see how much you get right. I'd suggest if you're on the money, both games should be solid. (Y)

Well worth checking out the articles everyone. Don't forget to comment!

The numerous links in each article distracted me from the article itself.

I demand that the integrity of feature writing not be tarnished by hacks like you! If I wanted a prediction I will call a psychic hotline instead of reading such articles!

If there will be a PC release of Live/Elite, I'll be getting that first instead of 2k. I hope I won't be disappointed with that decision and it will be a enjoyable game nonetheless.

I believe MJ signed a 3year deal with 2K, so from 2K11 to 2K13 he should be on the cover.

He did, which is what makes it a solid prediction.

I'm glad they gave additional covers last year so NBA 2K12 is Magic Johnson cover for me. Sick of seeing MJ on the cover. Was good for one year, like any other player.

I was fine with it, but then I'm not completely without my bias in that regard. Additionally, the PC version didn't get the alternate covers anyway.

I didn't get any of them since I Downloaded it from Amazon, so it doesn't matter much to me.

added an automatic win prediction of NCAA. I didnt even bother transferring it from the actual articles and sure enough the game gets a NCAA/NBA combo rumor.

Doing a NCAA/NBA My Player styled mode would pretty much be the biggest jump for a sports game. A player would be able to experience the way most players get to the league, and I'd be up for it.

If that rumour is true, then the possibility is there to offer a really strong counter to the historical content in NBA 2K.

I reckon you'll be spot on with the pre-release hype, too.

Although they're moving away from it, I hope it's still not entirely luck/"dice roll" based.

same, but Elite took the skill aspect to the extreme, and Live 13 won't be following that

As I've said a number of times before, I certainly hope that game modes have received some attention along with gameplay, controls and animation. It's overdue.
