NBA 2K13 was just released this week, and it has a pretty cool list of new features: better dribbling, a soundtrack selected by Jay-Z.

Of course, as this video shows, when the virtual Bieber got swatted and swiped by LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and the rest of the 2012 Team USA Olympic team it wasn't the most enjoyable experience. But you can never count out Bieber who catches fire and left us saying, "Baby, baby, baby, ooooooh."

A 250GB version of the new PS3 will be released on September 25, with a 500GB version dropping on October 30.

In this new video for EA Sports' FIFA 13 video game, Luck plays the new version of the game alongside rappers Snoop Lion and ASAP Rocky and ESPN soccer analyst Monica Gonzalez. In a performance for the ages, Luck passionately delivers his heartfelt lines ("Pass it!" "Cross it in." "Shoot, shoot, shoot."). There was no word on whether Lucked worked with a real controller during the film shoot or one made of soap. More »
