2K Sports has just released a new NBA 2K15 video featuring MyPARK with a quick teaser at the end on The Stage.

A few tweets from @LD2K below.
  • The streetball style will be differentiated from the Rec center. No streetball moves out there - full sim games.
  • During sessions, you can "squad up" for that session with friends and travel together. Yes TRAVEL. More on that later.
  • We'll have a full writeup breakdown on #NBA2K15's #MyPARK coming your way soon.
And here is the full write up.

Today, we announced the return of The Park, now known as MyPARK.

In NBA 2K14, The Park was first unveiled. It was the first iteration of a revolutionary mode unseen in any sports game, bringing MyPLAYERs together to play casual games of street ball. This year, the world is getting bigger and the stakes higher. The Old Town Flyers, Sunset Beach Ballers and Rivet City Rough Riders are recruiting true competitors to represent their community in NBA 2K15’s MyPARK mode. Each affiliation has its own 8-court home park and unique flavor of basketball emphasized by slight boosts to various aspects of your game. Pledge your loyalty to one and start making a name for yourself.
  • Affiliations: You’ll pledge your loyalty to one of three affiliations: The Old Town Flyers, the Sunset Beach Ballers or the Rivet City Rough Riders. Each has its own eight-court home park and unique flavor of basketball, emphasized by slight boosts to various aspects of your game.
  • MyPARK Rep: After selecting a park, you’ll begin earning a reputation for yourself with MyPARK rep, an earned-only feature which takes into account not only wins, but your teammate grade and opponents. As your rep increases, you will unlock various MyPARK-specific upgrades.
  • The MyPARK Championship: Beginning October 11 and lasting through the weekend preceding the NBA All-Star game, the MyPARK Championship will pit all three affiliations against one another in weekly rounds of competition. Earn points that count toward the MyPARK Championship, where the winning affiliation will receive a newly designed home park!
  • Jordan Rec Center: If street ball isn’t for you, try out the Jordan Rec Center, which features four full-sized courts and five-minute quarters of 5v5, NBA rules basketball. Games played here also count toward your MyPARK Rep and the MyPARK Championship.
  • Squads: Whether you prefer playing on hardwood or the blacktop, form a Squad with anyone currently in your park by viewing the list of players and sending them an invite. Once you have your team, use any designated Squad area located on each court. When that game is over you will all step onto the court together as a Squad.
  • Additional Features:
    • With the new Attribute Upgrades feature, you will no longer see a park full of 99s that are impossible to guard. You’ll become a specialist depending on how you upgrade your MyPLAYER.
    • MyPARK games have been shortened to 15 points, which will shorten Got Next wait times.
    • With the new always-on game score overlay, you won’t have to change camera angles to find out the current score.
    • The teammate grade meter shows how well you’re playing at a glance without having to bring up the game menu.
    • The MyNBA2K15 mobile app makes it easy to send texts to your squad or anyone in your park. Just type in the app and the text pops up on their screen.
    • Matchups are now based on height with weighting for position rather than simple join order.

The Forza Horizon 2 team has fixed the VIP issues many were having with the game and continue to work on the stability of the servers.
  • We have implemented a server-side fix for those players who have experienced issues with VIP functionality in Forza Horizon 2. With this fix, expected VIP behaviors should work as intended in the game (VIP badge next to your GT, 2x VIP wheelspins, VIP Car Pack cars cost zero credits on first purchase, etc.) As a precaution, we recommend you quit your current game of Horizon 2 and restart the game in order to see the corrected VIP functionality.
  • Some players who were part of the Xbox One October Preview program were experiencing crashing and freezing in Forza Horizon 2 and Forza Motorsport 5. An update was released earlier today and should be available to all Preview participants by tomorrow night. This update to the Xbox One OS should resolve those issues.
  • We have resolved the issue that allowed players to double-purchase VIP and/or the Forza Horizon 2 bundles. This should no longer be possible. We are currently investigating solutions for players that purchased this content more than once.
  • Some of our social features, like Rivals, livery sharing, etc. are seeing inconsistent performance for some of our players. While these features are generally working, some of them are performing more slowly than is ideal. The team is working to improve our online service performance.
  • Once the servers are stabilized, we will then get to sending out payouts for loyalty rewards cars, Forza Rewards payouts, etc.

By now the gaming public fully understands that the next-generation of NHL 15 by EA Sports is at best a scaled back version of the its last-generation predecessor. Missing modes and poor developer communication has blemished the titles release, and sadly pushed the improvements into the shadows of the internet. NHL 15 next-gen has a few advantages in its corner, but due to the lack of communication about what actually would be included in the title, most will be overlooked.

One of the advantages that the next-gen version of NHL 15 has going for it is the actual gameplay itself, which is a huge plus. While this factor alone may not be enough for even the staunchest of hockey fan to warrant a purchase, those who have taken the plunge have experienced firsthand what is capable on the new systems.

The PlayStationBlog has posted the compatible wheels list for Driveclub.

While all of the wheels currently compatible with the PS4, including the new Thrustmaster T80 & T300RS wheels will work, there is no mention of the popular Logitech G27.

With that said, they will add support for other wheels, when they become compatible with the PS4.

With all of the overall player ratings released for NBA 2K15, we figured it would be easier to look at, if we arranged all of the players by team. Enjoy.
