Crash the boards.
2k Sports have confirmed - via a reveal of the game's final cover art - that NBA 2k13 will indeed be "better with Kinect."
There's been no confirmation on what to expect in terms of support, but we're relatively sure that on-the-fly play calling and substitutions will be the order of the day via voice commands. The game is produced by Jay Z, for some reason.
“We aren’t content with just being the best, and we will continue to grow the NBA 2K franchise into one of today’s premier entertainment experiences,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “JAY Z’s role in NBA 2K13 represents a unique fusion of basketball, music, art, and entertainment, and illustrates the evolution of NBA 2K into something much bigger than simply the best basketball video game series ever made.”
As with all basketball games, the soundtrack appears to almost be as important as the on-court action to some people, and 2k weren't shy in confirming their setlist in order to satiate those gamers' needs. The full tracklist is as follows:-
The Hours - Ali in the Jungle
Too Short - Blow the Whistle (Main)
Eric B. and Rakim - I Ain’t No Joke
