- 2K Games Community Manager Ronnie Singh
has revealed three NBA 2K12 PS3 game covers today featuring Michael Jordan
, Larry Bird
and Magic Johnson
complete with PlayStation Move support.
To quote: Today I am extremely excited to announce the cover for NBA 2K12, the latest game in the unrivaled basketball video game franchise that sold over 5 million units last year and garnered over 20 'Sports Game of the Year' accolades.
As a kid, I remember watching basketball religiously. Looking back, there were three icons in the basketball world that stood out for me, all for their different strengths. I imagine you late 20s-early 30s gamers know exactly who I am talking about.
Fast forward to 2011. Yes, this year we have not one, not two, but three cover athletes! And not just any three players. We're talking about three of the NBA's greatest legends: Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson.
As you can see, the new stylized NBA 2K12 covers are a unique, one-time departure from the traditional 2K
Sports brand artwork and spotlight each legendary athlete on his famous team: Michael Jordan on the Chicago Bulls, Larry Bird on the Boston Celtics, and Magic Johnson on the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Bird and Johnson...
