    Now a full month into the season 2K Sports has rolled out its second roster update with ratings changes for NBA 2K20. Luka Doncic, Trae Young and Andre Drummond were the big winners two weeks ago in the first round of changes. Doncic continues a meteoric rise up another 3 points now to 93 Overall. That's now 6 points that he has gone up since the season began. That's understandable considering he is averaging near a triple-double at just about 3o points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists a game f...

    The first roster update featuring player ratings changes has arrived for NBA 2K20 and also includes updated heights and weights. Now two weeks into the season there is enough data to merit ratings increases and decreases and the updates should become fairly consistent throughout the year representing current player performance and trends. Jumping up the most in this new roster are Luka Doncic (+3 to 90), Trae Young (+4 to 89), and Andre Drummond (+3 to 89). Doncic is averaging nearly a tr...

    Since the deal began for Nike to provide the NBA jerseys back with the 2017-18 season there have been four primary sets for each team to choose from on a game-by-game basis: Association (white), Icon (team color), Statement (tying to the franchise's history), and City (representing a connection with the community). Not all teams will change change the last two every year but some choose to do so. A number of them have been unveiling new Statement uniforms for the coming season and 2K Spor...

    Going into NBA 2K20 expectations were high that the improvements being made to gameplay, the revamping of MyGM mode and a new story mode with high the usual high production values would lead to one of the more compelling iterations in the series. There certainly was already more content in place than any other sports gaming franchise to roll over along with gameplay and presentation already considered to be the best in the genre and no other sports game having one completely impressive franc...
  • Controversy of their own making with NBA 2K20 could cost Take Two in the long run

    With legislators and the FTC keeping close watching on video game monetization practices one might think publishers would dampen their brashness around promoting loot boxes and other gambling-like mechanics. Take Two, the parent company of 2K Sports, however has gone the other way. They have brought the conservation back to the forefront by releasing an incredibly audacious trailer for MyTeam mode in NBA 2K20. Major websites and Youtubers have naturally jumped all over this and made it a ...

    This year's crop of EA Sports games have been discounted leading up to and through release by Amazon. Madden NFL 20, NHL 20, and FIFA 20 have all been offered for just $50.94. Now a new promotion from the online retailer brings NBA 2K20 into line with those others. Rather than the lower price (likely not permitted to by the NBA/2K) Amazon is providing a $10 promotional credit with all physical copies for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Amazon Prime membership is a requirement...

    Only a few hours had passed after the arrival of the demo for NBA 2K20 before developers began announcing changes that were being made for release of the game. Though not a beta the limited offerings in the 2K20 demo do provide for an opportunity for 2K to collect feedback on gameplay and that is being done primarily through social media and boards like Reddit. What appears on the surface to be a rush to make changes has led to many to question what appears to be the complete reversal of ...

    The demo for NBA 2K20 has gone live on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. In recent years 2K Sports has referred to the early start with the upcoming 2K title as the "Prologue" but it appears that moniker has been dropped as the story mode no longer plays a role. Unlike previous years you won't be able to begin the narrative-driven MyCareer mode and have all the progress made (in an abbreviated beginning segment) carry over to the full game if purchased. This year's story stars Idris Elba an...
