2K Sports Signs Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose as Spokesman
for the NBA 2K10: Draft Combine Downloadable Game

Chicago’s finest brings his award-winning Rookie
experience to NBA 2K10: Draft Combine

New York, NY – August 11, 2009 – 2K Sports announced today that rising NBA star, Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls, will be featured as the spokesman for NBA® 2K10: Draft Combine, a download-only title that will provide fans with an immersive pre-season basketball experience leading up to the fall launch of NBA 2K10. Rose, the 2009 T-Mobile NBA Rookie of the Year, has quickly become one of the most electrifying playmakers in the league, and this season NBA 2K10: Draft Combine will tap into Rose’s personal knowledge and experience training for the NBA Draft.

“It’s a great feeling to partner with 2K Sports and represent the greatest basketball franchise on the planet,” said Rose, point guard for the Chicago Bulls. “I look forward to providing my insights of what that first year in the league is really like, and what it takes to stay on top of your game. This season, NBA 2K10: Draft Combine will be a place where fans can experience the life of a player trying to make it to the NBA. The drills are challenging, and the group scrimmages are always extremely competitive with everyone looking to improve their draft stock as well. It’s as real as it gets.”

Rose, who led the University of Memphis to the NCAA Championship game in his freshman year, was selected the top overall pick by his hometown Chicago Bulls in the 2008 NBA Draft after only one college season. This past year, he averaged 16.8 points, 6.3 assists, and 3.9 rebounds per game and was selected to the NBA All-Rookie First Team. Additionally, Rose led the Chicago Bulls back to the NBA playoffs, and his 36 points tied Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s NBA record for the most points scored by a rookie in his playoff debut.

“Derrick is the perfect fit to be our spokesman for NBA 2K10: Draft Combine,” said Greg Thomas, senior vice president of sports development for 2K. “Not only is he one of the most dynamic young playmakers in the NBA today, he’s the pride of Chicago, where the real NBA Draft Combine is located. We look forward to working closely with Derrick this season, and are thrilled to offer our fans a brand new pre-season basketball experience with NBA 2K10: Draft Combine.”

In NBA 2K10: Draft Combine, fans will begin their career at the ATTACK Athletics gym in Chicago by building their own custom player and working with a mentor, the 2K Insider, to step up their game through a variety of challenging basketball drills and 5-on-5 games to increase their NBA draft stock. The greater a player excels at a particular drill, or in completing specific game objectives, the more valuable skill points they will receive which can be used to improve one of over 30 key player attributes. Fans can then take their custom built players in NBA 2K10: Draft Combine and use them in the all-new My Player career mode in NBA 2K10 launching this fall, allowing them to continue their journey toward becoming an NBA legend.

NBA 2K10: Draft Combine, developed by Visual Concepts, is planned for release in North America, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and India on August 26 for Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft (400 Microsoft Points), and North America and Korea on September 3 for the PlayStation®Network for PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system ($4.99).

Yeah, Ron even said this:

"The plan is to have videos tied to future insights. But not this first one. Should be just a bit before the insight is posted."

"Trying to push for a hour. Just finalizing a screen."

A screen?

I don't get why there's a cover athlete for downloadable content

Nevermind I just saw that he's going to be promoting it

Wow, I never thought it would drop that early. Yep, even though I don't care about My Player mode or whatever it is called, I'll be buying this for sure.

The date that was slotted by Sony vs. MS.

(as stated by 2k Admin Ron)

Right, it's only a week and it is only DLC anyway.

It's a trend I don't like to see. It's like, will the games eventually be coming out a week early for 360 also? Will all demos start coming out for 360 a week early? We're both getting the game, why aren't we both getting it at the same time? Why does money always have to do the talking, why not treat your fans with equal respect? That's one more week some people get to mess with stuff compared to others.

It's not a big deal IN THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS, but I'm not talking about the grand scheme. I'm talking about fairness in these little situations. And it's not, to anybody anticipating the game for PS3 reading that is deflating.

What's next? Terrible textures on the court again? Extra lag online again? PS3 just doesn't get treated right by the sports teams.

Awesome that it's the 26th, only about 2 weeks away.

Talk to Sony about this. Pretty sure this has NOTHING to do with 2K or any other developers with demos and such. It's the fact that Sony doesn't put stuff up every day like MS will do with the 360. That is the difference of having to pay for Live, and getting it for free. (even though Silver Live users can still get this a week earlier than PS3 owners)
