It’s been a long time coming for the NBA 2K series, but All-Star Weekend will finally be coming to the popular video game franchise for October’s upcoming NBA 2K13 installment.
This seems more like an act of desperation rather than something that will get people to continue to buy it. With the NBA Live franchise returning this year, there’s much anticipation and hope for the once proud EA Sports franchise to string something amazing together after one year off.
However, there are those who find other problems with NBA 2K to the point where they don’t care about the anticipated game mode.
@Ronnie2K please fix online play! I don’t care about all star weekend. Just want to be able to hop into a game with friends.

@Ronnie2K That was the big announcement?

@Ronnie2K As a preorder bonus? That probably means it won't be implemented in other modes too… That is weak, guys.

not really thrilled about the new NBA 2k13 announcement. I guess the all star weekend is cool, but it doesn't really excite me

Avid fans of the franchise will more than surely love what is coming in October. NBA Live 13 will more than likely still have their stamp on All-Star Weekend, so this appears to be a way to one-up the NBA Live crew. But it doesn’t help when you make it a downloadable package where money needs to be spent.
So All Star Weekend is coming back to NBA2K13, but only as a pre-order bonus… WEAK!

But that doesn’t mean that die-hard fans aren’t excited.
NBA 2K13 finally getting the complete All-Star Weekend. Now all they need to do is put LeBron on the cover.

But rest assure: If this attempt doesn’t work, NBA 2K may soon be on the decline.
