There’s plenty of hype, but not much in the way of gameplay in this preview trailer for NBA 2K13. Playing more like a commercial than a trailer, the video features Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose, Los Angeles Clippers’ Blake Griffin, and the LA Lakers’ Kobe Bryant speaking in vague terms about how awesome the game is. As it was our top pick among all sports games at E3, we certainly believe them — but any mentions of improved graphics or the beefed-up game engine were scrapped in favor of Rose squishing a grape.
Also, don’t let the editing error at 0:23 fool you — this isn’t a re-release of NBA 2K12. 2K13 goes on sale this October.
