A dirty move by Take Two

#1 Posted by dantey (258 posts) -

So here is an add for NBA 2K11 I found on the internet.

I think that it is kind of a dirty move. Especially when you take in to the count, that NBA 2K games have been better then EA games.

I don't get what's wrong with it.

"take in to the count" 
 
 
Please make up more phrases. I'll follow you!

I think a dirty move is buying the exclusivity rights to the NFL and then releasing sub par games......

OMG HAHAHAHHAHA! 
 
Wow, stay classy 2K.  God damn that is brilliant.    
 
EDIT: That's not MJ so I'm assuming it's the same player who got "glitched" in Elite 11?

*sigh...* is that deal almost over yet? should be right? ...right...?  
 
On topic. Is it dirty cause the Great One is holding a PS3 controller and not a 360?

If you put out a pile of shit demo you can't really be mad when people make fun of it.  Especially when they are funny about it.

Someone explain to me the issue with the ad.

I think the joke is that the person is doing the Jesus pose like Andrew Bynum did in that Elite Youtube video. :)

Ahhhhh  xD 
 
OK, that's pretty funny. It's just coincidence though as that's just a Jordan pose. 
 
Wow, I feel stupid for not recognizing that. Thanks though. :P

@Hexogen: @mesklinite: @PS3RG: @JJWeatherman: @Warfare:  Broken Man made an appearance in the NBA Elite demo in some Youtube video. It was glorious.
 
I'm too lazy to find the video.
 
Edit: I guess Michael Jordan is the original Broken Man?

Not doing a quest, just thought that sentence was funny. You know about sarcasm?

Well either way, it still ends up being hilarious

This is exactly what I thought of at first. My cousin had that poster when I was a kid.

It gets better when he uses the word "then" and it should be "than". That happens far too often on the internet.

ROFL That's pretty funny.  I don't doubt that it's true.


I see nothing wrong with the ad at the top, though.  Nothing jumps out at me as anything more than normal advertising hyperbole.

What would you doubt? It's something that happened. 
 
 
That's why there aren't NFL 2k games anymore. EA owns the exclusive license to the NFL Players Association.

He also calls the "ad" an "add".

This is the sad truth. I still play NFL 2K5 from time to time. *tear*

Ea buying the rights to he NFL wasn't a dirty move, it was the only move they had if they wanted to continue the Madden franchise.  The NFL wanted an exclusive deal with one company and EA won that bidding war.
