NBA 2K15 System Requirements Revealed, Clean Up Your HDD!

NBA 2K15

With less than two months left before PC gamers can experience a truly next gen basketball simulation title with NBA 2K15, 2K Sports revealed the system requirements for the game and they are in some areas pretty surprising.

We’ll discuss them a bit later, but first let’s check them out below and I am sure you will see for yourself the “surprises”!

NBA 2K15 Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows 7 64 bit or higher
Processor: Intel Core2 Duo or better
Memory: 2 or more GB RAM
Graphics: DirectX 10.1 compatible (512 MB) or better
DirectX: Version 11
Hard Drive: 50 or more GB available space
Sound Card: 9.0c compatible

NBA 2K15 Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows 7 64 bit or higher
Processor: Intel Core i7 or better
Memory: 4 or more GB RAM
Graphics: DirectX 11.0 compatible (2 GB) or better
DirectX: Version 11
Hard Drive: 50 or more GB available space
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible

Even though things don’t look so bad in regards of processor/memory and graphics card requirements, the surprises come from the fact that the game requires no less than 50GB of hard drive space to run, while it is only available of 64 bit (or higher) systems. So it appears that slowly but surely the 32-bit era is becoming obsolete and future big name games will have requirements similar to those of NBA 2K15.

One of my personal wishes is that the game itself manages to be playable only with a keyboard – all previous iterations were basically impossible to play with a complete set of features without a controller. Maybe this year will be the first to mark such an important change. Because, yes, I still like to game using the old keyboard!

What do you think about the NBA 2K15 system requirements, though? Are they surprising for you?

Football Manager 2015 Release Date Announced, New Features Incoming!

Football

Fans of the best football management game that was ever created – Football Manager – were eagerly awaiting to find out more details about their favorite title and the good news is here: Football Manager 2015 has been announced by Sports Interactive, with the release date being set for “sometime in November”.

Diehard fans of the series will not find this release date as a big surprise, since games in the series usually are released during the time. And even though an exact date has not been announced, it will surely be a Friday in early November, so probably we’ll see the game on November 7th or November 14th, with the regular pre-order bonus of playing the game one week sooner (although this has not been officially confirmed).

Football Manager 2015 is expected to feature a ton of improvements compared to last year’s iterations, probably one of the worst games in the series (at least in my opinion). New features have not been announced yet, but they will start to come out in October, so there’s a bit of waiting left to be done. I am sure that some “leaks” will still be heard until then.

So, Football Manager 2015 is coming! Prepare to forget about your lives and start a new season with your favorite club. Or one you have never heard about in your life!

NBA 2K15 Cover Athlete Kevin Durant Begged to Be on the Cover

NBA 2K15

When do you know that your game is top quality? When an NBA 2K15 star admits that he begged the developers to be the player on the cover.

Kevin Durant said that during the phone press conference where he was presented as the player to be featured on the cover of NBA 2K15:

“I begged them to put me on the cover. I really think nobody plays the game as much as I do.”

Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant won the MVP award, so he’s clearly one to be on the cover of the most popular and most realistic basketball sim out there. And I do believe that the begging part was just a joke.

But, joke or not, there you have it: the NBA 2K15 cover athlete is Kevin Durant and I personally have high hopes from this year’s title. The My Player Mode – which happens to be Durant’s favorite game mode for its realism – should go completely next get in terms of realism and hopefully we’ll all have a blast playing it.

We’ll get to see for ourselves on October 7th, when the game launches on all major platforms.
