2K Sports has announced that NBA 2K13 is due out for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Wii, and PSP on October 2, 2012, in North America, and October 5 worldwide. A Wii U version is also in development; it will be released during the "launch window," in time for the holiday season. It's somewhat surprising that NBA 2K13 won't be available for the Vita; perhaps we'll hear about a Vita version of the game at E3.

Fans who pre-order NBA 2K13 will gain access to a launch-day downloadable package containing official NBA All-Star Weekend events set in Houston, where the 2013 NBA All-Star Game will take place: the Foot Locker Three Point Shootout, the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, and the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. (Pastapadre notes that until now, EA held exclusive rights to the All-Star Weekend setup, so in NBA 2K, All-Star events have only been playable in "Blacktop" mode.)

We reached out to 2K Sports for comment as to whether the All-Star Weekend DLC will be available to people who don't pre-order NBA 2K13, but had not received a response as of press time.

This fall, NBA 2K13 will have competition for the first time in three years in the form of EA Sports' NBA Live 13. In 2010, EA announced it was rebranding its simulation basketball franchise as NBA Elite, but eventually canceled the game when it became clear that NBA Elite 11 was not fit for release. Last year, the publisher revealed that its new NBA simulation title -- which has since been confirmed as an NBA Live game -- would not launch until 2012.

C'mon and SLAM! There's an NBA2k13 Space Jam mod

I'm not sure how this eluded me for three months, but I am here to make amends. Why there's no Quad City DJs pumped over the boring in-game audio I don't know, but this is a thing of beauty all the same. Game jams are such a huge thing these days -- let's see a Space Jam game jam, please.more

I can't make sense of this live-action Sportsball trailer

This trailer for Sportsball -- not to be confused with Action Button Entertainment's Videoball; the narrator's delivery reminded me of Tim Rogers, a bit -- is something else. I feel like I need to watch it about four more ti...more

At least Madden's glitches were funny. This is more like The Fly, or the chimera in Fullmetal Alchemist. more
