This is incredibly underwhelming. And before anyone asks, I was expecting something that really means something to me when I'm playing the game.

Only 19 songs? Or this just a preview?
 
# 3 JKE23 @ 07/31/12 06:53 PM
So stupid. So disappointed.
 
# 4 Gman 18 @ 07/31/12 06:54 PM
Is that the amazing by Kanye West from 2k10 in the 2k13 soundtrack?
 
# 5 kenn5373 @ 07/31/12 06:54 PM
Music is the biggest announcement in 2k history?
 
# 6 Aviator S @ 07/31/12 06:54 PM
Damn this is the big announcement? Very disappointed.
 
# 7 Bobcats3 @ 07/31/12 06:55 PM
This is the "big" announcement...?
 
# 8 EaglesFan1825 @ 07/31/12 06:56 PM
Are you kidding me?

This is sick! Jay-Z is the 3rd Greatest Rapper Ever behind Pac and Biggie and my personal favorite. IDK what he will contribute but even if its just a sick rap soundtrack I'm happy.

He's a beast at everything he does!

But that's just IMO

Great soundtrack. But smh @ 2K once again
 
# 11 Gman 18 @ 07/31/12 06:58 PM
Hopefully this years soundtrack is better than last years. 2k12's soundtrack wasn't that bad but it wasn't that good. I liked 2k11 and 2k10's soundtrack better.

Yo, are you serious? This was the big announcement? I want to buy a great basketball game, not an album. For the 2nd year in a row, how about actually concentrating on gameplay and online as opposed to these stupid gimmicks?
 
# 13 shindiana @ 07/31/12 06:58 PM
Damn 2K.........
 
# 14 burter @ 07/31/12 06:59 PM
I got the biggest announcement ever! The cardinals are starting Skelton over Kolb!........ Yea that is how the 2k announcement sounds like after reading this debacle.............
 
# 15 kjjnesb @ 07/31/12 07:00 PM
This soundtrack is great though better mix of genres than I thought just feels a little light. 2K12 had 28 to 2k13s 19..

It's all your guys fault for being disappointed... come on, inside we knew this would be the result.

I'm pretty sure this was the announcement. Jordan in the recording studio points to him recording the teaser.

So, um...yay? I think this will be good for the overall presentation and "NBA BIG" theme for NBA 2k13.

Let's at least focus on gameplay now, though.

Well, you would think a companys biggest announcement in NBA 2K history would involve the gameplay or game modes. On the other hand that is one amazing soundtrack.
