Sounds very... gimmicky. Yet, it also sounds pretty fun!

Can't wait to try it out.

My team = My crew

That's pretty cool. I like the sounds of all this. I will definitely be downloading the MyNBA2K app and checking out the MyLIFE one as well. Sounds like it'll be fun.

Wow...I can't believe how all out 2k goes after having two near perfect games back to back already

Still wish there was a Vita version. Would have spent a ton of time playing it.

I'll be interested to see how it works, but this looks like a cool addition to the game.

NBA2kMyLife mode sounds interesting
 
# 10 mymannemcee @ 09/05/12 10:18 AM
MyCareer and MyTeam integration, sweet. I like that. Don't care much for the little mini games though.
 
# 11 BlatantBlack @ 09/05/12 10:20 AM
hmm maybe those shooting drills, autograph signings and such they mentioned will be directly connected to MyPlayer, MyCareer or whatever they're calling it this year.
if thats the case, upgrading my player's stats/abilities/ingame cash/whatever while on the metro or sitting in a waiting room would be a total gamechanger!!

hopefully it is not just some rushed app containing nothing more than monotonous minigames and a "friends that are currently online" list

this has the possibility to be an excellent time waster!
 
# 12 ChristTheSon @ 09/05/12 10:21 AM
Sounds interesting count me in.
 
# 13 MurkMurda @ 09/05/12 11:07 AM
Sounds dope.
 
# 14 Plush oNe @ 09/05/12 11:33 AM
What hell was "myCREW" anyway? I never played it in the older 2K games
 
# 15 cavsfan2 @ 09/05/12 11:38 AM
Sweet. Ill get all three.
 
# 16 GlennN @ 09/05/12 12:19 PM

im not to familiar with madden's ultimate team mode other than collecting player cards. can you control your ultimate team from your cell phone or computer? im just wondering. but imo i think myteam is a combination of ultimate team and mycrew. where players can either use their myplayer or collect cards of all time greats and use them in competitive online team play.

It would be amazing to be able to manage your online association team from the smartphone: Drafts, Trades, Training, Schedule, Stats and so on...

Let's see what these features have to offer.

Cheers! ;-)

If I could use that just for my offline Association I'd be happy!

Perfect? C'mon. If you liked/loved 12 fine but it was far from perfect.
