NBA 2K13 issues increase, no fix yet
Even though NBA 2K13 has been getting some decent review scores, it does not mean that things are perfect for the latest game in the franchise. A number of players have been reporting a number of issues, with some saying that one is similar to what we have seen from previous versions. We do know that 2K Sports are aware of the issue because a thread has now been started on their forum, but as yet there is no indication of a fix.
One of the issues is in relation to the offline Association mode because after playing a game the virtual currency will not save. The saved data is meant to connect with the online server in order to keep tally, so as you can imagine this has become very frustrating for those who have been affected. There’s also said to be an issue with the game freezing on the Xbox 360 version while playing in Association mode.
There was also another issue with the 360 version after downloading the All Star Weekend DLC, as the Career mode has been freezing for some gamers. Again all parties are aware of the issue and are now working on resolving it as well. The final bug that we are currently aware of is with the instant play option, as there have been suggestions that this option is a little buggy. However, players are not certain if the developers have made changes to this option to make it behave differently, or if this is yet another bug to add to the growing list?
While this is not great to have these issues, you should not let that cloud your judgment when considering purchasing the game because there is a general feeling that NBA 2K13 is the best from the franchise yet and probably one of the best sporting titles as well – although that’s down to personal tastes.
There’s a great video that helps to explain the technology behind the game and it’s easy to see that it must have been a lot of fun while going though the motion capture process, which you can see below.
Speaking of other sporting titles, FIFA 13 is also experiencing some issues with not only the PC version by also the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions as well. However, we would like to point out that the latter is a separate issue to the one affecting the two consoles.
