Pasta Padre has posted an article about the serious issues we are seeing with NBA 2K9.

"With the NBA 2K franchise as the flagship of 2K Sports it has always seemed to offer the best overall experience with the most resources behind it. That has carried over to online play where it has generally been stable while offering great online leagues. Right now however the game is experiencing some major online related issues."

i heard about how there are glitches when playing the game and it is getting gamers fustrated and also angry e.g paul pierce hand went through someone head to grab a rebound and also how kobe bryant dunk went behind the backboard and the major glitch was how when you score a basket they don't inbound the ball they carrying on playing.

Oh man its really a sad few days right now. I could care less about the glitches but the lag is killing me (and although I'm getting used to the default cam, I still miss the 2k cam)

The 5 on 5 online is probably the worst when it comes to lag. I cannot even get into a game properly. When it starts, there is a network failure, or a huge lag. It's really disappointing.

I hope they can fix these issues because 5 on 5 seems really cool.

Seems like the demo played better than the actual game.

ive seen some problems online, but not as exaggerated as ive read from that article or other people. the only lag i get is from 5 on 5 but that can be fixed i guess. also about the inbound pass glitch, people need to use google because i fixed it by deleting the nba2k9 demo and all of your saved files (just to be safe) and it should work.

Online is a joke right now. I tried to get a 5 on 5 game at 5am and couldn't. It is the primary reason I purchased this game. I'll give them a few more days before I switch over to NBA Live. At least their online works.

Never thought I'd see the day where EA had the solid launch while 2K was cutting corners.

It's really a shame because the gameplay is amazing this year. Hopefully this gets ironed out quickly.

I cant believe they took out flex schedule for online leagues... WTF were they thinking.

Especially since there is no online mode on the demo ... Cut it out

well according 2ksports.com, the online should work "much better by the end of this week"......what exactly does that mean, Friday, Saturday or Sunday?

Sounds like a damn headache!

Makes me glad I don't really play online like that...

While the post is informative, we all know an EA game with similar problems would not be mentioned.

As bad as online is (I can't even get connected every time I tried) offline this game has glitches as well.

I'm gonna try to be patient with 2k and hopefully they fix both online and offline issues. When 2k10 comes out, I will probably wait it out a few weeks before purchasing. I rather be safe then sorry.

"NBA 2K9 Still Having Serious Online Issues"

No **** sherlock, how would anyone have gotten that idea?
 
# 18 Lid @ 10/10/08 11:33 AM
the free throw glitch from last year is there again. the first free throw is faster than the 2nd.
 
# 19 PaulZweber @ 10/10/08 02:07 PM
Anyone know when a patch is expected? Any news from 2k yet?

"Users are now reporting abnormal rosters being used in online games. Players on teams that they shouldn’t be. Rosters full of players from other teams. This one is bizarre especially considering the discussion in the conference call late last week. It was stated that the added player animations that come with the Living Rosters would not transfer into online play because they couldn’t validate that everyone had the same rosters. That had always been done automatically, everyone online would use the latest roster update. So something is up here and it may be more than a coincidence."

So those new animations arent even online and they cant validate rosters? The list keeps growing.
