Featuring NBA legends Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird as this year's cover athletes, along with new modes and enhanced gameplay,  NBA 2K12  reinforces the franchise's commitment to quality by combining the best of simulation basketball with an unforgettable sports game soundtrack.

"Music has always been an integral part of our  NBA 2K  video games, as it further immerses players into the world of basketball and enhances their gaming experience," said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. "It was important to us that the  NBA 2K12  soundtrack was not only what you hear while navigating the menus, but also in real-life situations like pre-game highlight introductions and during timeouts, just as you would hear a song while at a game or watching on TV."
