Check out the latest NBA 2K15 video, featuring Shaquille O'Neal and Ernie Johnson. Unfortunately, the video doesn't show exactly what they will be doing in the game.

The end of the video does show an exclusive for PlayStation users. They will receive a 10,000 Virtual Currency Bonus and PlayStation Plus subscribers will get an exclusive MyTEAM card pack.

It also shows something called The Stage, exclusive to PlayStation 4 users until November 7th. Hopefully we will hear exactly what The Stage is in the coming weeks.

The KD Bonus Pack is a pre-order bonus for all consoles. The PlayStation exclusives come with the game, no pre-order needed.

Read the full press release below.

Worldwide cooperation by Mercedes-AMG and Sony Computer Entertainment to mark launch of new racing game: Mercedes-AMG GT launches exclusively in DRIVECLUB on PlayStation 4

Just four weeks after its world premiere on September 9, 2014, the sensational new Mercedes-AMG GT sports car will feature exclusively in DRIVECLUB, Sony Computer Entertainment next generation racing game only on PlayStation 4. DRIVECLUB will be available on October 7, 2014 and fans will be able to download the new AMG GT for free in the first week of launch. DRIVECLUB also features five other models from Mercedes-Benz's high-performance brand: the A 45 AMG, the CLA 45 AMG, the C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series, the SL 65 AMG and the SLS AMG Coupe Black Series. Mercedes-Benz is supporting the launch of the game with a range of activities. The highlight of these is the "Journey of Stars", a global online competition available in a variety of social networks. From September 9 to October 9 2014, gamers can take part at www.journeyofstars.com and test themselves against their friends around the world. Each winner will receive a PlayStation 4 with the brand-new DRIVECLUB game.

In a world first for Mercedes-Benz, the AMG GT will be launched short after its world premiere in DRIVECLUB. Working side-by-side with AMG engineers armed with technical specifications and data, Evolution Studios was able to recreate the AMG GT in DRIVECLUB with breathtaking accuracy. With access to the Mercedes-AMG GT on the test track, Evolution Studios was also able to directly record the sound, allowing the team to recreate the every aspect of the car with total authenticity. With six AMG models, from the sporty compact class to the super sports car, Mercedes-Benz is the premium manufacturer with the widest range of models in the game.

"The Mercedes-AMG GT is an outstanding sports car and we’re pleased to be able to offer it to gamers in DRIVECLUB before it rolls off the production line. It will be available as a free download within the first week of launch," says Paul Rustchynsky, Game Director at Evolution Studios. "We're delighted that Mercedes-Benz is so strongly represented in DRIVECLUB. This proves the brand's attraction and importance, because only the world's most exciting and prestigious sports cars are selected by the game developers," says Dr. Jens Thiemer, Head of Marketing Communication at Mercedes-Benz Cars.

(This post has been promoted to the homepage. Written by NHL 15 Producer, Sean Ramjagsingh)

Thanks for being part of this journey as we head into the launch of NHL 15 on the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, the start of a new generation of hockey videogames. We’re incredibly proud of the next-generation gameplay and presentation experience we’ve created for all our fans. From the Next-Generation Hockey Player and True Hockey Physics to the Unrivalled In-Arena Experience and a revolution in Broadcast Presentation, I’m extremely proud of what our team has delivered in one year on new technology. The focus on a new gameplay and presentation engine will not only deliver a great game now, but also give us the foundation to deliver next-generation hockey experiences to you for the years to come.

However, we’re not done. We’re committed to keeping the experience fresh throughout the hockey season, in addition to the roster and ratings updates you’ve always received, the list below contains the free content updates for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 we’re working on and our expected window on when you will see them in the game:

September:

Playoff Mode
Create a custom offline tournament bracket with up to 16 teams from any of the 12 leagues in the game. Play or simulate each game and track player and team stats throughout the tournament.




Be A Pro - Coach Feedback
Get the coach’s feedback while you are on the bench. The coach will give you tips on how to stay on top of your game and grade you on your play.

3 Stars of the Game
At the end of the game, see the three stars and their high level stats. Will apply to every game mode.


Hockey Ultimate Team
Several content updates, including:
• Changed layout and navigation in HUT store
• New animations for player items
• Improved edit lines screen to better identify players that are injured or require contract extensions

October:

Online Team Play
Online multiplayer mode where every player on the ice can be human controlled.


GM Draft
For the first time in the NHL franchise, you will be put on the clock and feel the pressure like real NHL GM’s. You will now only have 3 minutes to make a draft pick. If the pressure is too much, you can also call timeouts to extend the amount of time you have to make a draft pick or potentially negotiate a trade. You can make trades at any time during the draft. The CPU will also propose trades to each other and the user throughout the draft.

------

As always your feedback is fundamental to how we make NHL better and better, so we will also be looking to what you want to see implemented in the game.

Thanks
Sean
