"I love this game": NBA 2K15 arrives on iOS and Android, costs $7.99

NBA 2K15, the newest game in the annual basketball series, has made its way onto iOS and Android, featuring upgraded graphics, new player animations, and realistic gameplay. Also, it costs a hefty $7.99, but that might be a reasonable price to save you from bothersome in-app purchases (you can still make those, but only if you wish).

NBA 2K15 features Oklahoma City Thunder small forward Kevin Durant on the cover, and you have all other NBA superstars to play with: Cleveland's LeBron James, Chicago's Derek Rose, and Kobe Bryant aka the Black Mamba, who makes a return to LA this season.

Interestingly, you can only get the game on Android via Amazon's Appstore, but we guess this exclusivity will be short-lived and the game will come to the Google Play Store eventually. Take a look at the trailer and screenshots, and if you like what you see, you can get the game at the link right below (remember, that you have a two-hour refund window on Android, just in case).

Why don't you announce that Halo: Spartan Strike is coming to all Windows devices.

Cause the priority is android, ios, and not the declining 2% of WP8

Your priority is not everyone's priority and tech sites should report the news as they are made aware of it.

This is an insta-buy for me as soon it arrives on gplay. NBA 2k on mobile is massively stripped down version of itself, but the phenomenal game engine and physics are the same and that alone makes the asked 8 bucks a bargain.

I don't really care about the graphics TBH, the game play and updated rosters are what I'll pay for. I love playing career mode lol

Wow I just saw some gameplay on YouTube and the graphics have been so vastly improved that I had to come back and say it. This is the best looking game on mobile, Vita included!

I can't wait to get my Z3 and pair up my PS3 controller to play this when its available. The game looks great.

Why isn't the game compatible with my Nexus 5 and Nexus 7? What gives?

It turns out the Amazon store one is only for Kindles, but it doesn't label as "Kindle only". Very misleading of Amazon.

I like more arcade style sports games for phones...I feel like the physics of a game like 2k14 or 2k15 might be a little difficult to work with on mobile.
