Hit The Pass - Press Row Podcast (video games)

The 99th episode of the Press Row Podcast features an in-depth, candid interview with NBA 2K15 Senior Producer Rob Jones all about the upcoming PS4 and Xbox One version of 2K Sports’ basketball game. Host Rich Grisham talks with Rob about a number of key subjects, including how the team put their plans together for this year’s game, his thoughts on the controversy surrounding the implementation of VC in NBA 2K14 (and how it is changing this season), core gameplay features, and some of the cool new features and options players will have across NBA 2K15’s impressive number of game modes. It’s a fascinating look into the mindset of the NBA 2K team, and can only be found here at Operation Sports on the Press Row Podcast.

It’s Episode 15 of the Press Row Podcast, the first in a series of one-on-one long-form interviews with people in the sports gaming world. Over the course of this year, we’ll speak in-depth with movers and shakers, from executives to developers to media folks, all with the goal of gaining a better perspective on the games we love.

This week, it’s Brad Hilderbrand, a Communications Specialist from EA Sports. We talk to Brad about how he made the transition from industry outsider to studio insider, his perspective on the state of games PR these days, what his goals are, and how his relationship works with people in the Tiburon studio as well as the media types he supports. It’s a fascinating hour dedicated to peering inside an oft-misunderstood – and demonized – aspect of the games business. And don’t panic! We’ll be back with another full panel episode next week. In the meantime, enjoy!
