“This year’s cars have an all new torque heavy power unit that deliver a lot of power; fast. You’ll see this reflected in-game as soon as you get into the car with the extra power kicking in almost immediately as you apply throttle and race off the start line. And for those that like a real challenge, removing the game’s assists will create for a tough, but rewarding experience as you battle with the car’s erratic handling and control its new-found power on the track that we’ve seen this 2014 season.”

How many people see this message when playing NBA 2K15 in The Park or the Jordan Rec Center? I'm starting to get it almost every single time I play now. This issue hasn't been going on for the last few hours, it seems it has been going on throughout the day.

PlayStation 4 users aren't the only ones getting booted out to the XMB. Xbox One users are also complaining about getting completely kicked out of the game, into the dashboard, while playing in the mode. While playing there are instances where players completely disappear and the only thing you see is the basketball.

On the PlayStation 4, the usual error is a blue screen with the CE-34878-0 error on it.

Let us know what you are seeing.

The NBA 2K15 servers are online, functioning and seem to have stabilized (as of this writing). I have successfully played six games in a row at The Park and I'm headed to the Jordan Rec Center now. Online modes should be working fine for all consoles, as well as PC.

Per @Ronnie2K.

Quote:
Breakthrough: everything online should be stabilizing. Please reboot and let me know #NBA2K15

Looks like we're completely back except play w/ friends on #MyPARK. Sent note to team. Keep me posted, we are going to keep working.

Dev will put up Play w/ Friends on Park & Last Gen servers up when there's stretch of stability. Should be soon if all goes well.

#NBA2K15 online should now also be normalizing for 360/PS3.

People reporting throwback KD not showing up that tried to claim during online issues, fear not. We are working on that, keep you posted.

One more thing I am seeing after team eased mass concerns... Domination not giving rewards. Informed MyTEAM crew, keep you posted.
