This week we say the announcements of 2K Sports Basketball putting Michael Jordan in the Cover of NBA 2K11 and Wayne Gretzky on the Cover of an upcoming Wii Title from EA Sports titled NHL SLAPSHOT.

I really must ask… A basketball player that has not been in the league sine 2003 (as a player) and a retired Hockey All Star – are planning on being the selling feature for these two titles?!? REALLY?

Maybe the Madden Curse is real and it’s expanding to the other sports titles… using Retired Athletes may be soon be the only option to protect a sports career.

I kid of course – MJ and Gretzky are both fantastic Athletes and covers are well deserved for both.
