NBA 2K12 is a basketball game based on the National Basketball Association, and is the thirteenth installment in the NBA 2K series, the first to include built-in 3D support, and the first to use motion controls using the PlayStation Move. Another new feature includes NBA's Greatest mode, in which players can match iconic players throughout NBA history.
NBA 2K12 received positive reviews, with an average score of 91%, praised for its realistic animations, realistic commentary, presentation, and overall fun.
The game was first released in October 2011, and included 8 online trophies. Unfortunately, the online servers were closed in November 2012, which means those 8 trophies can no longer be unlocked. Therefore, the Platinum for this game is now Not Obtainable.
The online servers for NBA 2K12 were closed in November 2012, which means 8 online trophies and therefore, the Platinum, are Not Obtainable. However, there are still 41 offline trophies that can be achieved, so if you're interested, then read on.
From the start, you can create your own My2K account, which will unlock the A 2K To Call My Own trophy.
When going for the non-simulated trophies, remember you can adjust the sliders to increase your players to 100 and the CPU stats to 0. It's best to check out the NBA 2K12 trophy guide links under our Links tab to see which settings are easiest for whichever trophy you're going for. Also, you should play at least one game and score 48 points with Kevin Durant with Oklahoma City Thunder for the G Performance trophy.
Once you've done those, you can play through the 15 memorable games. Win each one, and you will unlock Made My Name, Left My Mark, and the Wrote My Legend trophies. These can be done by playing only one minute quarters, which you can adjust under Gameplay in Quarter Length.
Next, there's The Association mode. Simply set the season to 58 games, with minutes set to 1, and each series to best of one. With these settings, you can unlock Streaking, Home Court, and Ticker Tape trophies quickly.
Then, there's the 11 My Player trophies. This is where the difficulty and time consumption comes in, as you'll need to play on Pro Difficulty without being able to customize the sliders. You will need to fulfill 10 of the 15 career goals, after which you can retire and earn the Immortality trophy. Also, you'll want to avoid simulating the games for the first few seasons in order to get the 10 million a year contract to unlock the I'm Worth It trophy.
Once you've completed the My Player trophies, then it's simply a matter of mopping-up any offline trophies you're still missing. Unfortunately, with the servers down, this is where we'll need to end things.
