Over the weekend many users were not able to get into online modes (some couldn't get to any modes at all). 2K Sports worked all weekend to resolve the issue, which seems to be fixed for some, but not for everyone.

Ronnie mentioned they are still working on some NBA 2K14 MyTeam and Private Team-Up issues.

Based off of feedback from email and Twitter, it seems the servers are very up and down, so let us know what you are seeing here.

TONY CAIROLI, DAVID PHILIPPAERTS, DAVIDE GUARNERI AND ALESSANDRO LUPINO GUESTS OF MILESTONE TO TEST THE ALPHA VERSION OF MXGP

Milestone, one of the most recognized racing videogame developers and publishers for consoles and Windows® PC, release a video-interview for MXGP - The Official Motocross Videogame. This new exciting videogame is based on the official FIM Motocross World Championship and it will be available from March 2014 on PlayStation®3, PlayStation®Vita, Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC®.

The protagonists of the Milestone’s interview are the well-known MXGP Italian riders Tony Cairoli, David Philippaerts and Davide Guarneri, and their MX2 compatriot Alessandro Lupino. All of them had the opportunity of discovering their own virtual avatars through a one2one meeting with the MXGP – The official Motocross Videogame’s Development Team.

"The main aim of MXGP is the loyalty to the Championship and for this reason we’ve invited some riders to help us into the development of the game such as: physics, tracks and audio. The riders had the chance to try an early version of the game and to share their own feedback. It has been very interesting seeing them in action: only who actually rides onto the real tracks can test deeply the game’s loyalty", affirms Alessandro Castrucci, Milestone’s Game Director. "Thanks to these preliminary tests the riders have revised the tracks with the artists and the physics with the programmers giving interesting points that are now part of the game. Every single rider had the chance to try for several hours the game and answer to our questions such as the riding’s feeling and the real Motocross Bike’s behavior. What did they love the most? For sure the career mode that for the first time has been included into an official Motocross Videogame", concludes Castrucci.

This exclusive partnership between MXGP’s Official Riders and Milestone is a clear proof of the attention to details and Gamers’ Experience that Development Team has included into the game.

MXGP features all the riders, teams, bikes and rules from the official MXGP 2013 calendar including a redesigned career mode for living the feelings of Motocross.

Developed by Milestone Studio, MXGP, The Official Motocross Videogame will be available in spring 2014 for PlayStation®3, PlayStation®Vita, Xbox 360® and Windows PC®.

Check out the latest NBA Live 14 gameplay tips video featuring gameplay designer Scott O'Gallagher, where he shows how you can improve your game.

The three minute video shows users the various ways to shoot, pass and utilize signature moves. It also shows post moves, pick and roll options, defensive controls, learning play art and provides auto-motion details.

It's interesting to see some sort of practice mode in the video. Maybe we'll see it in an upcoming patch?

Either way, check out the video. Maybe you learn a few things, maybe not, but it's good to see the team pushing out more information.
