About NBA 2K12 Legends Showcase:

Legends Showcase will be available this holiday season for $9.99 via PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 and for 800 Microsoft Points via Xbox LIVE Marketplace for the Xbox 360.

Legends Showcase creates a truly unique basketball experience for all fans, featuring a new, cell-shaded art style set in New York City’s iconic Time Square. This downloadable add-on enhances NBA 2K12 by providing a never-seen-before gaming experience, unlocking hours of additional gameplay and giving fans an all-new way to end the debate over who is the greatest basketball player of all time.

Legends Showcase also features mini-games, such as 21 and H-O-R-S-E, along with other new features like the 2-on-2 Teammate Challenge and 3-on-3 Era Challenge. Gamers can also unlock current NBA players to create unique match-ups between legends and current stars. Finally, for the ultimate challenge, gamers can bring their My Player into the mix and battle the legends of the NBA to see how they stack up against the best ever.

As an added bonus, Legends Showcase also includes Classic Quick Match, a new mode that is opened up in the main game allowing gamers to play online with the NBA’s Greatest teams in a regular simulation setting.

Wow, they added alot of legends, with that being said, 2K better be giving us the option to have total control over the legend teams= adding players, editing players, removing players and putting them on different teams, etc.

Exactly. I want to be able to use them outside of Legends Showcase.

That sucks. At least give us the option of turning off the cell-shade.
 
# 7 Goffs @ 11/03/11 09:28 AM
We can't add these legends on normal play correct?
 
# 8 faiz_reds @ 11/03/11 09:28 AM
Good to see yao ming will also be in the dlc.
 
# 9 sead94 @ 11/03/11 09:29 AM
Stop the madness pls, 2K should fix the gameplay first, many many issues there, plus the persistent online problems, otherwise DLC will go all Titanic. I hope they realize this on time.

Now I wanna see what current re-rated players will be in the mode. I believe Tim Duncan and Grant Hill were already confirmed, but who else? Kobe? Shaq(not a current player but already in the game)? KG? T-Mac? VC? Can't wait.

yeah this...I hate the look of it...i hope that cell shaded look is not on when playing the classic quick match online...

What about the PC version of this?
 
# 12 nova91 @ 11/03/11 09:32 AM
why the cell shading, it looks like nba street.

Agreed, I thought it was confirmed awhile ago that part of the DLC will be the ability to use these players and the current legend teams in offline association along with the ability to add/edit players on the legend teams.

First of all. I'm quite impressed with the addition of so many legends (and jerseys). It looks like it's going to be a fun mode. But on the other hand, as a classic roster enthusiast, it's heartbreaking to see 2K having access to 45 additional legends and not including them in the actual game. Furthermore, it's just as much of a bummer to see certain jerseys will be represented in this mode ('93 Suns, 80's Sonics, 90's Bullets, '94 Nets) that we've been asking for in regular modes for years. It's like getting a new car but only being able to drive it down your driveway and back.

So, I have to ask, why would 2K make all these additional legends (not to mention the jerseys) exclusive to the Street Mode? Couldn't they have offered them as DLC but then allowed our purchase to unlock them in all facets of the game?

Exactly. Doesn't make any sense.

No Iverson once again. Sigh
 
# 20 boomhauertjs @ 11/03/11 10:11 AM
Iverson's technically not retired, so that's why he's not going to be in the Legends collection.
