The result is a "Jay Z Production," which entails hand-picking the soundtrack, changing the pre-game introductions, and even providing input on the interactive menus. The real changes, however, are in the gameplay and play modes, which offer several improvements and added depth to all but ensure a successful showing at retail. Of course, being the only NBA-licensed game on PC and consoles doesn't exactly hurt, either. NBA 2K13 makes its PC debut on October 2nd.
