If I were to say, “I’m excited about playing NBA 2K14 on PS4,” that’d be the understatement of the year. Ever since 2K dropped that trailer featuring James Harden (with beard in full tow), I’ve been anxiously awaiting the chance to relive that experience from the comfort of my couch.
2K Sports has gone on record saying that 2K14 on next-gen consoles is an entirely new game from the ground up. Up until very recently, there hadn’t been very many details given. With the first iteration set to drop on the PS4 at the end of this week, senior producer Erick Boenisch and NBA legend Steve Kerr welcomed a few folks to a conference call on one of the brand-new features for next-gen, the My GM mode.
Here are some of the highlights of the conference call.
The conference call didn’t go into much in depth, but if you want to get a good look at what to expect from the mode check out Operation Sports. They have an entire blowout titled “My GM, Developer Diary.” The post on Operation Sports goes through almost everything associated with the mode.
If my excitement level was a 9 out of 10 for the release of 2K14, the conference call and Operation Sports article made it an 18 out of 10. As I’m sure most know, 2K14 will be available when the PS4 drops this Friday. As an added bonus, Target is currently doing a buy 2-get-1 free promo on all games this week. And it includes PS4 games. If you got the extra cash, I’d suggest making it happen. 2K has also let loose one of the most exciting features I've ever seen in a sports game, period. They tried to do this with NFL 2K5 (Dreamcast what up!?), but the technology wasn't there yet. With the release of the new consoles, 2K aims to bring the game to an even higher level with player interviews during the game.
As an added bonus, be sure to check back next week for my first impressions of all things NBA 2k14 on the Playstation 4.
