NBA 2K10 is expected to deliver the most realistic, stylistic, and feature-rich simulation experience ever available in the NBA 2K franchise – from gameplay to graphics, presentation and online features.

NBA 2K10 has sold over 2 million units worldwide, marking a phenomenal +60% increase in sales over the same time period last year for NBA 2K9.  With the all-new My Player career mode and critically acclaimed NBA Today feature, NBA 2K10 continues to be the #1 rated NBA simulation (based on GameRankings.com average scores) for the ninth consecutive year.

"We're proud of what we've accomplished this year with NBA 2K10, and this milestone is another fantastic reason to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the NBA 2K franchise," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K.  "We would like to thank all of our loyal fans for their dedicated support and look forward to the continued success of this title." 

"2K Sports has been a world-class organization to work with, and we are both really excited about the incredible success this season with NBA 2K10," said Kobe Bryant, 11-time NBA All-Star of the Los Angeles Lakers, and cover athlete for NBA 2K10. "2K's tireless attention to detail and dedication to giving fans the most authentic NBA simulation experience possible is what separates them from the competition, and it's been great to be a part of that."

In addition to the monumental success of NBA 2K10, the development team at Visual Concepts will receive an added boost this upcoming season by welcoming back longtime NBA 2K gameplay producer, Mike Wang.  Bringing a wealth of knowledge from his deep experience in successful basketball titles, Wang will join an already impressive group of developers working on the next iteration of the franchise.       

"It feels good to be back home with my 2K Sports family," said Wang.  "Being able to work on the greatest basketball game in the world has always been paramount for me, and now having that opportunity again is a blessing."

NBA 2K10 raises the bar this season with the most realistic, stylistic, and feature-rich simulation experience ever available in the NBA 2K franchise - from gameplay to graphics, presentation and online features.  Giving fans what they have long requested, the all-new My Player career mode allows fans to create their own ultimate NBA player and guide his every career move.  NBA Today offers real world matchups, news and stats automatically streamed right into the game, along with keeping commentary and overlays fresh and up to date based on what is really happening in the NBA.

NBA 2K10 raises the bar for authenticity this year with groundbreaking new features:

  • NBA Today: Real world matchups, news and stats automatically stream right into the game.  NBA Today keeps commentary and overlays fresh and up to date based on what is really happening in the NBA.  
  • My Player: Giving fans what they have long requested, the all-new My Player career mode allows fans to create their own ultimate NBA player and guide his every career move.  Players start as an undrafted rookie in the Summer Circuit, and if their skills become advanced enough, they may get an invite to participate in an NBA team's training camp or end up in the NBA Development League. The road to being an NBA star is a long and hard battle, and each player has the opportunity to create their own unique experience making it to the league.
  • The Association: The Association strives to be the best franchise mode in sports video games. Full incorporation of the NBA Development League and the ability to control all 30 NBA teams at once, including restricted free agency, real-time practice, an all-new player progression system, and a host of other enhancements gives NBA 2K10 players the tools to rule the court and lead their team to victory. 
  • Crews: Crews, a new online feature, allows dedicated online players to round up their friends and build the ultimate squad using either created players from My Player or an actual NBA team.  Players can go online and battle other Crews for bragging rights and progression points as they try to climb their way to the top of the Crew leaderboard rankings. 
  • Signature Play: Signature Play pulls together all of NBA 2K's player Signature Styles and adds in all-new Signature Tendencies and facial expressions, creating NBA 2K10 teams that play and react like their real life counterparts for an unbelievably realistic NBA experience.  Improved easy-to-use offensive controls for dribbling and post game let players pull off ankle breaking IsoMotionTM moves and dominate from the perimeter to the paint.  Gamers can shut down teams like never before with innovative defensive controls that allow you to shadow your opponent's every move, deny position off-ball, and even select different approaches to contest shots.  

NBA 2K10, rated E for Everyone, is now available for $39.99 on Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii; for $19.99 on PSP and PS2; and $29.99 for PC.
