First Roster Update Available Now for Next-Gen NBA 2K14

Posted December 6th, 2013 at 10:00 am


The Xbox One and PS4 versions of NBA 2K14 suffered through a stretch in which they utilized a roster that was nearly two months old. That has finally come to an end as the first roster update has arrived for the new systems. A new update has also been released for 360 and PS3.

Changes include injuries being reflected for players such as Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo (plus Kobe Bryant who wasn’t injured in the base roster), Chris Paul moving up a point to 94 overall, Kevin Garnett going up a point to 83 despite averaging a dismal 6ppg, Paul George for some reason being lowered a point to 90, and Carmelo Anthony moving up while a number of other Knicks go down. The trades of Derrick Williams to the Kings and Marcin Gortat to the Wizards have been completed. A number of players have been added however the visual likenesses of other individuals in the game are being copied over for the new ones.

    I am an offline user as I do not have internet yet because of a recent move. I was wondering if there is any way I could get these new rosters by downloading them and transferring them onto my ps4. Any advice helps. Thanks

    • I don’t believe so because it’s currently not possible to save a roster to the hard drive. It has to be downloaded every time. This is something said to be addressed in the next patch which is a ways off though.

        Thank the Lord. That is the most annoying thing ever. They left that in the dark big time, and messed with a lot of people. Guess I’ll be starting myGM over, but thankfully you don’t lose your attributes when you restart.

    Pasta do you think they’ll ad a mode back in where we can have control like we did in the current gen like (association mode) These Rosters are WAY over due and jersey updates, shoes ect….

    • No, because they now design modes and features around VC.

        I have it for ps4 can u use the new roster update for mycareer when I tried I got drafted by the kings and it didn’t have the new roster d.Williams was still on the wolves

      Right now, I would accept just being able to turn off in-season cpu trades and maybe a fix for the draft logic they talked about in MyGM. As much as I love getting the #1 overall player at the 15th pick or so, it really kills any realism that 2K is seemingly trying to accomplish with the mode.

    Odd with the Paul George and KG ratings…but that graphic is that from an NBA finals game?

    Are they not able to give the players they just added their own cyber face?

  • MoneyMayweather

    The reign

  • The Great Leon

    Not able to download yet but did they add contract extension for Bogut and Kobe?

    • MBird

      Unsurprisingly, no.

    How can they keep getting away with this. Look closely at this roster update. The added players are just free agents or Euroleague copies that closely resemble the player with changed info. They didnt even bother to change the photo. Like Hollis Thompson for the 76ers has no tattoos. His player model is littered with tattoos. I love the game but this is just ridiculous. They just did this so people would leave them alone but I say we should complain more than ever

      Sucks that you’re unhappy with the roster update.

      Give The Park a try. 3 on 3 basketball in The Park is the best thing to hit sports video games in recent memory. It’s pure crack. Should take your mind off rosters until they come out with some more updates.

      “how can they keep getting away with this”… they aren’t getting away with anything. They aren’t legally obligated to update their roster to your liking. Most games don’t update daily or weekly. Just recently did sports games start updating rosters on their own.

      • They do have a legal obligation to provide features that are advertised.

        “Dynamic Living Rosters powered by Stats, Inc.

    Dynamic living rosters…… We all wondered what dynamic rosters meant and we have our answer. Another note to 2K, don’t advertise something then wonder why everyone criticizes you when you don’t deliver, it’s not very becoming of our sports gaming savior.

  • Khadeem

    are there are any legal ramifications for false advertising in video games becuase 2k gets away it

    • Keith.

      Do you have the game, Khadeem? Didn’t think so.

      • Skopin

        What does that have to do with his comment?

      • D

        Why are you and many other people I’ve read in comments so quickly and sternly coming to the defense of 2k here. I bought this game a couple of weeks ago and was kind of disappointed by the lack regular association mode but I still enjoyed the game and was getting into it more and more. Last week it started crashing and I thought it was one save file no big deal…now I can only play “play now” I buy the game for “association” now gm mode and I enjoyed my career but I can’t even play it and there is no explanation why or when this will be fixed. It’s just being ignored!! I spent money on vc and I’m sorry but that is wrong that they aren’t doing everything they can to refund that to people or at least show some concern. I would just be happy to be able to play one of the game modes. Tonight I figured I would just run an old fashioned season….nope crash. It is like they have cut off all outlets for this to be known and I’m grateful it’s posted on here but there is no need to be defending 2k right now with how they are handling this.

      • Khadeem

        ????….ive played at least 10 full quick games on the ps4…u sound dumb as hell bro

  • Wematanye

    This is fucking trash, 2K needs to hire someone that isnt a lazy slob with no knowledge of the NBA. KG shouldnt even be an 80 at this point.

  • Wematanye

    Can someone tell me the following players overall, A. Bynum, Drummond, MCW, & Afflalo?

  • Scooty

    Is there going to be an update to fix the issue of not being able to save the sliders?

    “The Xbox One and PS4 versions of NBA 2K14 suffered through a stretch in which they utilized a roster that was nearly two months old.”

    Suffered? Hyperbole alert. 2K should live up to advertising. This article needs some perspective on the word suffered.

  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    Found this and I Think this sums up 2K’s miscues and Lives miscues. Its perfect! lol

  • dylan

    Hey I’m an online user on the XB1 and I still havent gotten the updated rosters to use for the mycareer mode. Do you know how to fix it??
