You don't think getting roster updates within the hour of a big trade accomplishes anything?

Im basically comparing it to daily updates.

Yeah I thought you might be.


Trades, FA signings, releases, injuries, etc. Getting updates quickly when those things happen doesn't accomplish much you say? Well, to each his own, I think it's a great feature.

With the hourly updates, if 2k is now linked with nba.com, all they have to do is automate the scanning of rosters & depth charts on an hourly basis. It's not like it involves tons of man hours from people checking & updating. Or maybe they hired some gnomes to do the job.

But im itching to see what they are holding out on as far as online play because the number of players has me interested.

Well of course, that is the part that is the most intriguing. Unless it's a typo, which I highly doubt. Hopefully when NHL 2k9 is out of the way, they'll open the floodgates and explain everything in detail & bring the much awaited game play videos and the demo!

My two questions about the hourly updates are, if there is a new rookie or player not in the game and the game updates based on what's on NBA .com, does the game automatically just create that player and put him on the roster? Also with these hourly roster updates, will the game update player ratings and tendencies? If not I hate to say it but this feature still doesn't match the Live 365 feature, cause that will update player and team tendencies and ratings. Its still a huge step in the right direction by 2K as far as roster updates.
