Re: NBA Playgrounds 2.

I hated NBA Playgrounds. Such a dumb idea to have to grind to unlock your roster of players. Hope they chuck that out the window and just give us an NBA Jam update with a full roster (but doubt they will).

You might just get a straight-up NBA Jam title instead.

Re: NBA Playgrounds 2.

I do not know, or care to know, much of anything about basketball. But I loved playing NBA Jam when I was a kid, so I'm cautiously optimistic about this one.

Re: NBA Playgrounds 2.

This looks like a lot of fun and season mode is enough to tip me to buy this

Re: NBA Playgrounds 2.

I already paid for the preorder. I wonder what happens now.

Re: NBA Playgrounds 2.

Delay sucks but at least this is encouraging

"We’ve got some news to share, but we want to start by saying ‘good things come to those who wait.’ There are exciting things brewing with the NBA Playgrounds franchise that we think will take arcade basketball to new levels.
We can’t tell you everything now, but we can tell you that this means our launch date of May 22nd will be moved out. Please be patient with us, we promise that NBA Playgrounds 2 will be better than ever. We’ll have more details to share soon."

Re: NBA Playgrounds 2.

This comes out Tuesday with a new MSRP of $29.99. I got a message from PlayStation that I would be receiving a refund but never got one. My $15.99 preorder still looks active in my Game Library so I guess we will see come Tuesday. There's no pre-order page up in the PSN Store to confirm at present.

Re: NBA Playgrounds 2.

I can't download the new version. The CS at Sony has no idea what's going on. I own the pre-order but it's not tied to this game. Hopefully they will figure it out soon.

Re: NBA Playgrounds 2.

It sounds like unless you either put a ton of time into this or spend money to unlock things that getting more players is ridiculous.

That's exactly how the first game was too.

The review I watched made it sound worse. Like it takes forever to earn points to unlock the character packs and they’re really expensive. I haven’t played either of them but was kinda thinking about it. Probably will just pass though.

Re: NBA Playgrounds 2.

I had no idea you had to unlock characters... I can see the appeal in that but I want a quick pick-up game from time to time. I'll pass until the price drops - considerably.
