NBA 2K13 supports Kinect, but not Move

Friday, 10th August 2012 20:24 GMT By Jeff Dunn

As expected, upcoming basketballer NBA 2K13 will support Kinect voice commands. However, PlayStation Move support has been axed.

Ballers will be able to use the Kinect for actions like calling plays and moving specific players on the fly. And before you ask, yes, you can curse at the game too, but the in-game refs will call a foul on you for your frustration.

The commands will be available for use when playing against the AI, but not in any form of multiplayer.

As for the Kinect’s motion control counterpart, the PS Move, it’s been cut just a year removed from its NBA 2K debut. No official reason was given for the decision.

NBA 2K13 will launch on all major consoles and PC this October.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    I wonder if Sony will bother with move and eye toy for PS4?

    Obs MS have to use Kinect because they constantly see it as a way to tap in to your living room (literally)…

    At the moment we have:

    Wii U : Tablet Controller and wiimote plus maybe 3DS control

    MS 720 : Kinect 2 and Smartglass (poss AR specs and Windows 8 support)

    PS4 : Vita support and ???

    I hope Sony are cooking up some cool shit because at the moment, MS look set to blow them all away. If they come out with a beast of a machine (in console terms) with all this functionality, it’ll be pretty hard to beat. Once again Nintendo are operating on a different level, Sony could be the odd one out…

    Makes sense. There’s no point pouring resource into a failed and forgotten peripheral.

    I agree with you Monkey. I think Sony are in a make it or break 2 or 3 years. They have to figure out away to move Vita, and they have a whole host of mistakes to avoid when launching PS4. They have to exicute PS4 launch flawlessly, imo. Price and game selection are key.
