Wha..? Why do we care that Jay Z is the exec. Producer? Why does that feel like some kind of Jay Z masturbation video?

I much preferred when the music in this game was real Hiphop and underground, breakbeat funk, cut kemist etc. it was intelligent. This worries me a great deal on direction of the game. I also don't like Jay-Z and the distorted image of hiphop culture he presents to world. I may not buy this game this year due to not wanting him to get any of my money or support him, due to the detriment he has caused with hiphop.

Just turn the music off. Your $60 won't all go to Jay-Z. Think of all the hungry kids who won't be fed.

Every time a hip hop artist is said to have involvement with a video game you get so many unwarrented dislikes and protests. Save your money, he doesn't need it. I'm buying this because I always love 2k basketball, and never once cared about the soundtrack.

Personally, I could care less about the Music( as I am not into hip hop), but this video alone just feels like an ego stroke. I mean, what can Jay-Zs involvement possible have to do with the game? This vid has shifted the importance from the game to the friggin' Executive Producer? WTF? Oh yeah, now I remember all the great games Jay-Z has been a part of... oh wait...

    GriftGFX Well.. not true. They briefly kicked ass on Xbox and PS2. (40 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Maybe that's good for their business, but as a fan of their games things haven't been so great since the Dreamcast died. (40 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Yea that worked out great for Sega. Their internal development has declined significantly since going third party. Their role as a publisher is more important now. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts I wish Nintendo all the best with the NX and hope they succeed. But to be completely honest, I wouldn't mind if Nintendo did what Sega did and we got to play their games on PlayStation, Xbox and PC. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts future where a mobile only gaming only handheld can be successful enough to justify itself. Not that can't make money, just that it won't be worth based on the ROI. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts So there's an active erosion of both Nintendo old customers and potential new consumers that mobile gaming is taking from Nintendo. I agree with NX consolidating both markets, but I just don't see a (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Yes, but I believe most of Nintendo fans from the 80's, 90's and early 00's are fathers or mothers now. And they mostly game on smarthphones, so their children are growing up with tablets/smartphones. (1 Hour ago)
