When online storefronts like Steam and the Epic Games Store bless customers with free games, they are usually getting on up there in age. However, the Epic Games Store is bucking that trend today by giving away a red-hot, current-generation title that is very relevant now in the sports world due to NBA playoff season: NBA 2K21. That's right, NBA 2K21, which launched back in early September for PC platforms, is yours to download with no strings attached, courtesy of Epic. This is all part of Epic's MEGA Sale 2021, which is discounting select games by up to 75 percent now through June 17th. In the case of NBA 2K21, the offer is available now and will end on May 27th. Granted, NBA 2K21 didn't get... Read more...
It looks as though Take-Two isn’t fazed by negative commentary from gamers, and is in fact intent on doubling down on its most incendiary tendencies. The latest controversy involves NBA 2K21, which started gearing up last month on current generation consoles and the PC platform. NBA 2K21 players are now discovering that ads are being inserted into the game; specifically during the loading screens. Gamers unfortunately aren’t being given the option to skip the ads. And even more egregious is the fact that these ads are often longer than the actual loading screen, which means that you’re sitting there waiting for these ads to end before you can get into the action...

A generational leap in console hardware should facilitate a generational leap in gaming graphics, should it not? And the PlayStation 5 is certainly a big upgrade over the PlayStation 4, the same of which can be said of the Xbox Series X/S versus the Xbox One X. I bring up the PS5 specifically, though, because someone posted a video comparing the gameplay graphics of NBA 2K21 on the PS5 and PS4. This is made easy because 2K Sports launched NBA 2K21 on the current-generation consoles first, since the next-gen hardware does not arrive until the middle of next month. And overall, it looks pretty good on today's consoles. But the trailers for the version built for next-gen consoles, including a recent... Read more...
At least one publisher is planning to charge a premium for games released on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X (some of them, anyway), compared to what the same titles will go for on current-gen consoles (Xbox One and PlayStation 4). As such, pricing for NBA 2K21 has been set at $69.99 for the PS5 and Xbox Series X, and $59.99 for current-gen consoles. And according to Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick, the price hike is "justified." Whether other publishers follow suit remains to be seen. But for Take-Two Interactive, a $10 bump is a "modest price change" that is perhaps long overdue. "There hasn't been a price increase for frontline titles for a really long time, despite the fact that... Read more...
2K Games today revealed pricing for its upcoming NBA 2K21 game, which will launch first on current-generations game systems (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows PCs, and Google Stadia), then later on Microsoft's and Sony's respective next-generation consoles, the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. However, pricing will not be the same on current-gen and next-gen platforms, at least not for the standard edition. Regardless of platform, NBA 2K21 will arrive in two main releases—standard and a special Mamba Forever Edition honoring the late Kobe Bryant, the former Los Angeles Lakers superstar who perished this year in a helicopter crash, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna...
