    Last sentence of the article states:
    "We have one of the biggest announcements ever," Argent vowed, "if not the biggest ever in the history of the 2K Sports franchise ever coming in a couple of weeks. I think you'll be surprised. Pleasantly."

    Any guesses as to what this big reveal will be? A new game mode? A huge gameplay improvement? Some people are speculating that it will be the Dream Team, but I personally don't think that'd be one of the BIGGEST announcements in 2K history.

    I hate to be that guy , but whatever it is , it won't work online. Three things in life are certain : Death , Taxes , and shitty online from our buddies at 2K

    :(

    I hate to be a negative Nancy, but with no game changer program I have no inside info to think they fixed anything

    I need to dig up the "2K Game Changer" proposal.

    On topic, I have no clue what it is...I've seen speculation it is a college football game.

    My guess is FIBA. We'll be coming off an Olympic year so it kind of makes sense. Unless EA has FIBA. There were always rumors that they were going for it.

    If not FIBA, i'm thinking maybe something like the return of Crews with a brand new spice to it

    As much as I love the 2K series, I can't help but feel this announcement will be a letdown for me, unless it's a gameplay improvement

    I would do awful things to get college hoops back...

    It sounds to me like they bought out a company or a licensing agreement of some sort though.

    Even though it's not happening, the pure joy I would receive seeing the internet (or the sports gaming portion of it) EXPLODE if they announced NFL2K's return would be unmeasurable.

    College Hoops is a goldmine if someone will just put it together. The diehard fans had a blast with the old college hoops games, but the execution from either developer always lacked something.

    Cover all the bases and there is a huge market out there for it.

    College Hoops I hope, I only play that game about a month out of every year, but it would be so much fun.

    I love NCAA hoops games, and still play CH2K8 every couple months. I don't wanna come off like a dick, but I couldn't disagree more with this statement. College hoops is not marketable AT ALL outside the United States, and the sales were bad enough for both 2K and EA's outings just a few years ago that it wasn't financially viable to keep either series around. Unless you sell millions of copies yearly (like NCAA Football) it is very hard to make money with the cost of the NCAA license, especially with college basketball, where there are 300 some odd teams. I'm desperate for the return of the College Hoops 2K series, but I'd be shocked if there's college basketball release in the next 5 years. Maybe a new generation of consoles might bring one, but I doubt it.

    NCAA Football is not sold outside of the states either. While it is more popular within the U.S., I think college hoops is marketable enough to keep afloat. If you had a full fledged game (hasn't happened yet, despite how good CH2k8 is), I think you could really draw in the college crowd. If they would stop doing stupid shit like releasing a new March Madness game when the tournament comes out and get a handle on the rest of their bad business decisions it is a very feasible business venture.

    I agree with Drifter.

    Imagine an updated CH2K8 with online dynasty.

    I might just give up all NCAA Football dynasties for good if that happens.

    Now imagine if they kept the ratio the same for users allowed in the online dynasties...

    NCAA Football - 124 teams : 12 users
    College Hoops - 345 teams : 36 users

    A man can dream, can't he?

    What if it's a postgame recap "show" and/or a halftime show w/ highlights? They did it to an extent in NFL 2k5 so I imagine they have the means to expand on that 8 years later.

    EDIT: Of course, the postgame show would probably be exclusive to Association.

    The commisioner of your league will always get first pick in the draft and all the timely foul calls come playoff time.

    Except for the fact that 2Ks servers would make this an IMPOSSIBLE task
