Done! Thanks for the quick reply... that was all the reassurance I needed. Now I'm just looking forward to raining threes as Basketball Jesus.



I do want to warn those that are ordering NBA 2K12. Since there was a lockout, 2K didn't have the rookies like Kyrie Irving, Kemba Walker, Jimmer Fredette, or Norris Cole usable to begin with. They are on the disc, but can only be unlocked through a 2K share roster update. 2K has shutdown 2K Share for NBA 2K11 and 2k12, so 2K12 at this point is a glorified version of 2K11. I know this cause I bought 2K12 last week for my bro on Xbox 360 (I already had it for PS3 last year) and when I put it in, I was pissed I couldn't even use last years rookies. Buyer be warned at least until or if 2K ever decides to put up 2K share for this problem.

So basically, everyone avoid 2K12 unless 2k fixes this problem or you have other means (someones xbox360 roster update through a forum, PS3 not possible unless extreme means).

Sorry for getting back so late. Lin is 56 as a reserve for the Warriors, and the rosters are still from the summer of 2011 (Rudy Fernandez on the Mavericks, Chris Paul on the Hornets, Dampierre, Bibby, Ilgauskas on the Heat, sorry for any spelling mistakes) so I went ahead and updated the rosters for Xbox 360 manually with my 8gb usb stick, a program and someone's roster file from a forum on the internet.

As I stated before, the rosters are going to be from the summer of 2011 with no rookies and you can't get into 2K Share to get any 2K roster update, sorry.:cry:

Mine didn't have any, because I couldn't get past 2 seconds into the first intro where 5 players are walking in. Just a friendly warning about this title.



Yeah, I knew about the glitch on PS3 since I already had 2K12 during the NBA season, and I fixed the glitch with instructions from the 2K forums many months ago. I have an original 60GB PS3. I'm lucky on PS3 cause I was able to update my rosters before they shutdown 2K share completely.

I'm not so lucky on xbox 360 since I just bought that version as a gift, because even though I downloaded the rosters from a forum, all the rookies had black arms (black like a car not ethnicity) because they're not officially unlocked. I haven't tried unlocking all the legend teams on 360, so I'll keep hope that maybe the arms will go back to normal once I do. No guarantees though.

I believe they shut it down on November 1st without much warning. The least they could have done was keep it up with the last roster update from June. I guess this is their way of making people buy 2K13.



If someone could put a warning anytime 2K12 is on sale, that would be very appreciated and helpful for many people that don't know about this issue and sorry for the lengthy post.

Was tempted with Need For Speed the Run. $9.
Saw the reviews were bad to mediocre, so decided to pass.

Convince me otherwise? I like arcade racers.


I think I bought this when Best Buy had it for $5.

It's not bad, I mean it works. But it's pretty middle of the road. I traded it in. I'd much rather spend a few bucks more and have a good to great racer I'll keep coming back to.

Well... crap. It didn't even occur to me that I might not be able to get the current roster updates, at least for as of the end of last season. I guess that makes some sense though - I'm sure you're right that it's to push 2K13 over older/cheaper releases and it's unlikely those servers would come back online. The main draw for me on this is the classic players, but that's still disappointing. I'll try updating with a downloaded roster update and see where that gets me. Thanks for the heads up.

On the other turn of the coin I wonder how many people have bought a shovelware game like such and actually did enjoy it better then a AAA title released the same year? I guess its possible. I got a feeling in December they will be selling RE:ORC for 4.99 used.

If you bought NBA 2K12, just go to the Operation Sports forums and download the 360 rosters that Rondo is God created for '12. It has a pretty extensive set of tweaks, the black arms should be fixed, and it has rosters including this year's rookies. You'll need Modio and a usb drive to import the files to your 360, but its well worth it.

Give it a couple months, or maybe end of the year. It's been out for a year now. Eventually, it has to drop lower.

I usually get my games in 3-4 business days. My shipping confirmation comes out usually the day after purchase. I think it depends on the location though.
