That's hot.

Come on October.

Online Hall of Fame, sounds interesting. I hope that's implemented in a way that doesn't reward cheesing.

I don't see how that really accomplishes anything(the 'Living Roster'). I guess it's a nice touch.

You don't think getting roster updates within the hour of a big trade accomplishes anything?

How often do big trades happen?

Im basically comparing it to daily updates.

Yeah I thought you might be.


Trades, FA signings, releases, injuries, etc. Getting updates quickly when those things happen doesn't accomplish much you say? Well, to each his own, I think it's a great feature.

With the hourly updates, if 2k is now linked with nba.com, all they have to do is automate the scanning of rosters & depth charts on an hourly basis. It's not like it involves tons of man hours from people checking & updating. Or maybe they hired some gnomes to do the job.

Well of course, that is the part that is the most intriguing. Unless it's a typo, which I highly doubt. Hopefully when NHL 2k9 is out of the way, they'll open the floodgates and explain everything in detail & bring the much awaited game play videos and the demo!
 
# 10 STLRams @ 09/04/08 08:30 AM
My two questions about the hourly updates are, if there is a new rookie or player not in the game and the game updates based on what's on NBA .com, does the game automatically just create that player and put him on the roster? Also with these hourly roster updates, will the game update player ratings and tendencies? If not I hate to say it but this feature still doesn't match the Live 365 feature, cause that will update player and team tendencies and ratings. Its still a huge step in the right direction by 2K as far as roster updates.

Hopefully they put out GOOD roster updates and actually create some players..............not the dreadful updates that they have been putting out recently. This sounds really good but Im gonna take a wait and see approach with this.
 
# 12 ZephyrSong @ 09/04/08 08:49 AM
My only problem with the hourly updates is that 2k said they can't really create players if they aren't part of the existing template just like the Jamario Moon thing whom they never created. (But they did put up Carl Landry, very weird)

Nevertheless, if they will work hard to put every single scrub transaction then fine... I just hope it gets executed well.

 
# 13 ZephyrSong @ 09/04/08 08:51 AM
And oh.. to those saying that the hourly updates is overkill... I think you read it wrong (and I did too during the first time)

Basically if there's a transaction 2k will put it up in the next hour (or knowing them in the next hours) So it's not like every hour there's a roster update for hot and cold or something like that... Capiche?

Lmao. I think hourly IS a little much. Daily would even be. Weekly updates is all that is really needed, but I won't complain regardless. I didn't complain when they gave them twice a year.

If these dudes can't CORRECTLY update BI-ANNUALLY how the hell do they expect us to have faith in them CORRECTLY do it hourly.
 
# 16 OSUFan_88 @ 09/04/08 09:19 AM
Defense Sig Style = Awesome.

Online HOF = Awesome

Hourly Updates = I'll wait to see it.
 
# 17 BobbyColtrane @ 09/04/08 09:21 AM
it seems kind of silly to update HOURLY. maybe daily would be good. i can't wait for tim duncan to have an off night and watch his OVR drop to 55 or something.

i can't wait for the online HOF for the glorification of these cats that do nothing but dunk and shoot 3s all day.

Thats exactly what I was thinking.....the roster updates was one of the worst things about 2k. They were just terrible !

Ho hum!!
 
# 20 Rebel_INS @ 09/04/08 09:34 AM
I'm just curious...why would Kobe have on those generic kicks on the back of the box?

Kinda makes me question the authenticity of this 2 a degree...
