  1. NBA 2K21

    A game like Spider-Man Miles Morales was made for the PS5, but he's not talking about games like that. He's talking about stuff like Madden and Avengers offering free upgrades. Those two games will most likely be exactly what he said in that quote...."up-resing textures and up-resing resolutions..." You're saying that 2K21 on next gen consoles will just be updated graphics. In that quote, that's exactly what he said it's not going to be. It'll obviously have updated graphics, but it's more than just that.
  2. NBA 2K21

    A lot of people are upset that the standard edition of NBA 2K21 is $69.99 in the United States (up from $59.99). However, price increases for console generations have happened in the past. Games cost more to make, etc. People are also upset that you cannot buy the standard edition of 2K21 and receive an upgrade for free like other games are doing. The reason this is the case is because of this. Quote from exec VP: "We get the hardware very early from Sony and Microsoft so we’ve been working on it for a long time. We are very excited about what it lets us do, both visually and creatively. I think everyone will be blown away, I am very excited by what I’ve seen. We believe we are the only developer that is making a game exclusively for the next-generation systems. We have heard most other top franchises are up-resing textures and up-resing resolutions and LOD. We have our entire NBA team dedicated to specifically the next-generation version." Unlike games such as Avengers, Madden, and Cyberpunk - which will more than likely just be mostly graphical and frame rate upgrades, NBA 2K21 on the PS5 and Xbox Series X will be exclusively made for next gen. Thus, it's a different game from the ground up.
  3. NBA 2K21

    New year, new consoles, new 2K. This year is a particularly exciting year for gaming due to the PS5 and Xbox Series X arriving this holiday. Because there are new consoles coming later this year, the process for buying 2K21 is a bit more complex than normal. I'll provide a detailed graphic that shows all the necessary information: Essentially, if you purchase the $99.99 edition of 2K21 (Mamba Forever Edition) you will receive a free upgrade to the standard edition of NBA 2K21 for your next gen console. For example, if you buy the Mamba Forever Edition on the Xbox One, you will receive the standard edition of 2K21 as an upgrade on the Xbox Series X. Same goes for buying the Mamba Forever Edition on the PS4 then getting the standard edition of the game on PS5. Also, all of your VC, MyTeam points, MyTeam tokens and cards will transfer from current gen to next gen.
  4. NBA 2K20

    I'm going to work on making a new thread for 2K21 and include some information for you guys.
  5. Cyberpunk 2077

    I wonder how insanely demanding this game will be to play on PC.
  6. Free Agency

    That's a good question. Pete Carroll seems more like a players coach, so probably would let stuff slide. At this point, though... you'd have to think that Antonio Brown wouldn't do anything to mess up a chance if he were to play in Seattle. I thought the Patriots cut Brown because his sexual assault situation was really getting super heavy and they didn't want to deal with it, so they just got rid of him. I didn't think he actually did something inappropriate in New England to get cut.
  7. Xbox Series X

    Ah, okay I see what you mean. That makes sense. Going to need that for Star Wars Squadrons.
  8. Xbox Series X

    Everything works faster with a SSD. For example, my old computer with a standard hard drive took several minutes to boot up, load windows and become useable. With my current SSD, I can restart my computer and it boots up, loads Windows and becomes usable in about 6-7 seconds. Apps like Discord, MS Teams, Steam, etc all load up and boot so much faster it's mind blowing. I'm assuming it will be the same for the next gen consoles. Apps will load faster, the stores will load faster, console will boot games, etc
  9. Xbox Series X

    Also, for all you console only players. The SSD will change your life. I play on PC mostly these days and it's insane. Games load within 1-2 seconds, boot up immediately, etc. One of the devs for NBA 2K said that 2K21 on next gen consoles will load in two seconds. If anyone here plays 2K, you know how long and annoying those loading screens constantly are.
  10. Xbox Series X

    From what I understood, Sony is doing free upgrades just like Microsoft is doing. Avengers and Madden are offering free upgrades from PS4 to PS5. One thing about Sony's approach is that they don't have to offer upgrades for exclusives since all of their exclusives will be on PS5 only, like Miles Morales for example.
  11. Xbox Series X

    The issue with the Series X is that all of Microsoft's exclusives will be on Xbox One and PC. That's great for the consumer and population of the games because more people will be playing, but the downside to that is there might be less people willing to upgrade to the Series X.
  12. 2020 Arizona Cardinals Off-Season

    Arizona is quickly becoming one of the most overrated teams in the league. They're going to be better, but I hear people on the radio and television predicting they're going to be a playoff team. I think it's a little too soon for that. I still think they're a year or two away, especially in the toughest division in football. The thing about the NFC West is the Niners are essentially guaranteed a playoff spot since they're the best team in the entire conference.
  13. Chiefs sign Mahomes to 10 year extension

    We get it. Dak Prescott blah blah blah
  14. Chiefs sign Mahomes to 10 year extension

    When you look at it like this, it looks so much better. Mahomes only making like 10-13 million more per year than guys like Big Ben, Jared Goff and Kirk Cousins.
  15. Chiefs sign Mahomes to 10 year extension

    $140 million injury guarantee and security for life with an amazing franchise. What a great deal.
