NBA 2K13 cover star Kevin Durant led his team to Olympic gold in London this year, but are they as awesome as the 1992 Dream team? My backwards cap says “no”.

Rapper, producer, co-owner of the New Jersey Nets, and husband to bootylicious Beyonce, is apparently executive producer of NBA 2K13. Life of Riley, eh? 2K has yet to issue a press release on the matter, as of this post, but a video posted below found by G4 seems legitimate considering Michael Jordan is doing the voice over. NBA 2K13 hits stores on October 2, 2012.

Jay-Z’s in DJ Hero for the good of hip hop. That’s right. Not because he would have been paid a metric fuckload of money to do almost no work.
“Immediately, of course, with the success of Guitar Hero, it piqued my interest,” the US legend told MTV.
“Then, you know, on top of that, it was something from the hip hop culture, so any time, you know, I can expand the genre and introduce it to new audiences and widen it. You know, the reach of what hip hop can do, you know, I’m interested in that. And then, you know, after playing the game, you really get the feeling, like you know, you can be Grand Master Flash.”
Sure. DJ Hero’s out in the US now. You’ll be able to buy it this side of the water on Friday.

Activision has turned to the pros for its upcoming DJ Hero, and these pros are none other than Jay-Z and Eminem. The two are have taken consultant positions on the game and have contributed tracks.
A special-edition bundle of the game will include a greatest-hits CD from both, possibly with new tracks, an advanced version of the controller, DJ stand, and a metal traveling case.
This is all according to USA Today, who interviewed both artists regarding their contributions.
“I don’t want to give away any surprises yet,” Eminem said in an e-mail interview. “DJ Hero will include my music, and I’ll be providing additional material as downloadable content by the end of the year.”
Jay-Z seemed impressed with game claiming that “you actually get lost doing it”, and that it creates “a DJ’s universe.”
