NBA 2K9 features a heavily licensed soundtrack, leaning on hip-hop and pop to fill out the roster.
NBA 2K9 uses the 2k beats functionality, which mainly is used to control the playlist of songs while browsing from menu to menu.
As with the competition, you can expect to see roster and attribute changes when you download a new 2K roster in NBA 2K9, all based around what's happening in the real world.
However, rather than update things on a daily basis, 2K devs told us that the plan was to change a roster when it was warranted.
In the gameplay front, NBA 2K9 added "Living Rosters", which were updated at the beginning of every week.2K understands that Living Rosters might sound like a similar feature, and they're quick to point out its essential differences.The crucial distinction, as they put it, is the "human touch" of the 2K Insider, a hired employee whose job it will be to not just act as the face of the 2K Sports community, but to also have a real impact on the rosters in the game.First of all, the developers at 2K are entirely aware of the competition.As any hoops gaming fan knows, EA Sports' NBA Live 09 announced its player DNA feature a few months back, whereby in-game player attributes will be updated based on real-life results.
