Last week 2K Sports teased a “big announcement” for NBA 2K13 and that news has come earlier than expected because it wasn’t really something that would have attracted headlines at E3. The game will feature the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest, Three Point Contest, Rising Stars Challenge, and the NBA All Star Game set in Houston where it will be played in February 2013. This is being offered exclusively as a pre-order deal through all retailers and was listed by Amazon first this morning (360PS3) with a code being provided to download the content.

In recent years EA Sports held exclusive rights to the All-Star weekend setting which is why despite having a dunk contest in the NBA 2K series it was held in “Blacktop” mode. The rosters for the Rising Stars and All-Star teams will feature those involved from 2012 and then will be updated with the 2013 players once they are selected.

The other noteworthy news is that 2K Sports revealed there will be a version of the game for the Wii U in its launch window. The release date hasn’t been announced but is widely expected to be November and 2K is stating the game will be out “during the holiday season”. Also there appears to be no plans for NBA 2K13 to release on the PlayStation Vita.

Crap. No PC? I have no problem with pre-ordering, but I don't feel like buying a 360 or PS3. I can, but PS3 has liability issues and Xbox Live members are complete douchebags.

This really pissed me off cuz 2k was making this seem like a huge announcement. It's not even that big of a deal. My idea was that they bring back crew and give it an ultimate team style. So as the crew gets more wins u can get better players. So no one can start off using the heat or thunder on their crew and theyll actually have to earn it

You dont have to preorder it as it will probably come out as paid DLC, which is [expletive deleted]

Kind of gets me mad we have to pre order it though...

Same here, because afterall the bugs with stats being a mess in Association mode this year I dont plan on buying 2k day 1 ever again. My plan was to just wait and see whether I want to buy EA's or 2k's this year depending on which one has the best Association mode and the least amount of bugs.
