NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May. 30, 2012-- 2K Sports today announced that NBA® 2K13, the next installment of the top-rated NBA video game simulation franchise* for twelve straight years and the follow-up to the award-winning NBA 2K12, will be available on Tuesday, October 2, 2012 in North America and October 5, 2012 internationally for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, Wii™ system and Windows PC. A Wii U™ version of NBA® 2K13 will be available in the launch window, at a later date.

Fans that pre-order NBA 2K13 for the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 will receive a new downloadable NBA All-Star content package presented by Sprite. This add-on content will be set in Houston, the site of the 2013 NBA All-Star Game and will allow fans to stage their own NBA All-Star Game, including three NBA All-Star events - the Foot Locker Three Point Shootout, BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, and the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest featuring all-new intuitive, pick-up-and-play controls.

Gamers can pit the NBA’s current superstars against classic players in both the Foot Locker Three Point Shootout and Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. Rosters for both the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge and 2013 NBA All-Star Game will feature the 2012 All-Stars, with dynamic updates to the 2013 rosters once the participants are announced.

Developed by Visual Concepts, a 2K Sports studio, NBA 2K13 is not yet rated by the ESRB and will be available on October 2, 2012 in North America and October 5, 2012 internationally.

Finally 2K has the full All-Star package. Now lets hope the content stays after you download it unlike the Sacramento/Golden State DLC.

Nice !

Considering that it's only May. This is great news.

I loved this mode back in Live 2005.

I hope EU and UK get a similar deal. On the Amazon UK site it doesn't have this on the 2k13 page.

I hope you can pre-order through gamestop and get it. I'm not quite fond of pre-ordering online. It is great news though, but I think it should have been in the game for quite sometime now.

Yeah, but it got tiresome re-entering the code. Not a big deal but I remember some said that re-entering the code didn't fix it for them.

Will we be able to use this in association mode ?
 
# 8 WaddupCouzin @ 05/30/12 08:01 AM
On the psp, but not the Vita?
 
# 9 navyboy09 @ 05/30/12 08:06 AM
Not trying to be a ***** but we shouldn't have to pre-order the game just to get the allstar weekend. Stuff like that should automatic be in the game b/c it apart of the game.

Excellent point.
 
# 12 Saijahn @ 05/30/12 08:26 AM
Will be it's own mode? Why not implement it into Association and My Player? Sorry this seems a bit suspect until further notice.

WoW now I have to pre order to get a piece of the h
Game classic this game and others this Gen have been hacked to pieces and sold over the internet ....when will we get one complete game......
 
# 14 OverKick @ 05/30/12 08:31 AM
Awesome....they are re-adding features from previous 2K games that were taken out for no apparent reason. I'm so stoked.

First major announcement about 2k13 is something that required 0% innovation. Just more reason to NOT pre-order this game.
 
# 15 letsgocavs99 @ 05/30/12 08:32 AM
It better be in my player and association mode because I rememer I had Live 05 and the dunk contest/3pt contet were fun and I'd always do them in the middle of the season.

Nice I am sure even if you don't preorder they will eventually release the code to everyone.

Thats not the point im trying to make...what im saying is i shouldn't have to do anything extra to get stuff that should already be in the game. Especially when it was in the game at one point then taken out now a big annoucement like it's something new.
 
# 19 ccoaxum @ 05/30/12 08:40 AM
ok yea this should automatic be on the game, yea 5 dollars is nothing but what happens if you don't get a chance to pre-order it, what now you got to pay a certain amount of money off the game market for the dlc like the other mode on 2k12..smh you can wonder all you want but i knw this mode is not going to be connected with the other modes which is going suck..and in my opinion their all star mode was not as cool as the other opponents one when they have it on their game. But its nice they trying to put it back on the game!
 
# 20 BezO @ 05/30/12 08:43 AM
Damn! As someone that doesn't pre-order games, this sucks. Even worse that it has to be done online.
