NBA 2K12 Receives Patch to Fix Freezing Issues

Posted February 27, 2012 by Simon in News

For Playstation 3 fans of NBA 2K12, it’s been a frustrating few months.  While it hasn’t hit every gamer on the PS3, a rather large amount of them have been suffering a freezing issue with the game when it is started up.

2K Sports promised a patch, and we’re happy to let you know that it is officially here.  When launching your game for the Playstation 3, you’ll be prompted to download and install a patch for NBA 2K12.  This patch will include a fix that 2K Sports has said will fix the freezing issue when the game is initially booted.

Have you downloaded the patch for NBA 2K12 yet?  If you had been experiencing the freezing issue previous to the patch, have you been able to load up your game without any issues?  Be sure to let us know what you think by leaving us a comment below.
