Hey sports fans, if you've been put off by EA's horrifying take on Madden this year , cross your fingers that 2K continues to retain the NBA license. NBA 2K14 just hit the New Zealand App Store ahead of tomorrow's launch of the console version of the game, and it comes with a $8.99 price tag instead of leaning on an annoying free to play energy mechanic.
NBA 2K14 should be available in the US App Store later tonight, and we'll have more coverage on the game in the upcoming days. In the meantime, first impressions should start flowing in on our forums  which are worth following while you wait for the full worldwide release at 11:00 PM Eastern.
