2K Sports today released the latest rosters for NBA 2K14 and that includes those for the 2014 NBA All-Star game. While all the players are in – with Kobe Bryant there until a replacement is announced – the jerseys and court for the New Orleans event are not. Those are said to be updated later this week.

The most recent patch for NBA 2K14 that released on the Xbox One over a week ago is now available on the PS4. It should automatically download in the background when the console is started up or will upon launching the game as long as there is an online connection.
The update attempts to address some of the major issues that have afflicted the game since it’s release or since being introduced in an earlier patch. That includes the crashes to the dashboard when trying to play MyCareer and MyGM and getting stuck in the Playoffs in MyGM when the mode won’t advance.
Though it hasn’t solved everyone’s problems by most accounts it seems to have been an effective patch on the Xbox One side – where consumers were having a greater rate of trouble – so that is hopefully a good sign for those on PS4 too. Continue on to check out the patch details which is the same for both consoles.Â Read more
