2K Has Added Quick Game Mode to Their NBA 2K20 Demo - Warriors vs. Raptors with 6 Minute Quarters

The NBA 2K20 demo has received an update today, adding a quick game mode, just in time for the NBA season, which tips off tomorrow night.

The new quick game mode allows you to play 5 games between the Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors with 6 minute quarters. You can change the camera angle, but that’s about it. You can’t change the difficulty, adjust sliders, or anything else. It’s just a demo, after all.

If you don’t have the full game and haven’t tried the demo, you can download the PlayStation 4 demo here, while Xbox One fans can grab it here. For everyone else, you can simply update the NBA 2K20 demo you currently have installed.

I’m sure the vast majority of users here, already have the full game. But for those that don’t and want to check it out, this news is for you.

  1. Yes....this sold me.....Besides the game mode, I’m pretty sure the gameplay in the updated demo is so different from the other demo...”Just like night....and later that night”..:waytogo:
    By the way nothing against 2k, I’m strictly an offline gamer and bought every game since 2k5 still year is my first pass. But there has not been enough innovation in the offline dept. for me. Nothing against those who bought it thought otherwise.
    Glad their's a Quick game mode now.
    I wish more games would release Demos. I like to try them out. If I like a game I wasn't sure about, I am more likely to buy it.
    This tells me sales aren’t meeting expectations., and this is a 4Q sales push. Oh boy, this is kind of concerning. If my feelings are correct perhaps this will push them to tighten up 2K21 with a better overall product at launch. Offline I am enjoying this game.
    You guessed correct! Since, the post on OS showing 2K20 is selling for $29.99 or $39.99. So it’s clear that it’s not doing well overall?

    NBA 2K20 is already the best selling game of 2019.

    I'd guess its more to get actual NBA fans who are excited about the start of the NBA season a taste of the NBA side of the game. They already have the MyPlayer online folks.

    Me saying this is not an insult to NBA 2K, and is not an attempt to minimize the empire they have created in the basketball gaming space. I have a YouTube channel where the majority of the videos are 2K (I mostly enjoy pre-2K18 titles), and my brothers and I have created countless memories playing 2K games together.
    But the biggest reason they are already the best selling game of the year, is the fact that they are literally the only viable NBA gaming option, and basketball/NBA has reached all time highs in popularity (how many people the NBA now reaches certainly has helped that). Especially this year, where Live has not released Live 20 yet, so it literally places them as the only option for a sport that is INCREDIBLY popular..
    Even if Live 20 was released, they have consistently underwhelmed consumers or potential consumers for the better part of 13 years, and even with Live 19 taking a step or so in the right direction, it still didnt put any dent in 2Ks popularity, as EA has dug themselves quite the hole, and part of this is not making the NBA releases high enough of a priority (For YEARS).
    I miss the days of more players being in this space, between Konami, 989 Sports, Microsoft, Midway, etc. I think it would do the NBA gaming space some good for another player to rise to the occasion and give consumers another viable option. I've said this many times before, but EA should be making the NBA games they make a much higher priority, based on the popularity of the NBA and the sport itself alone.
    I think Live 19 had good bones, but without deeper content/features/modes/customization that appeal to all ages (instead of focusing on mainly one demographic), without content that people can get immersed in and stay immersed for longer periods of time (that can compete with its ONLY competitor) and without giving the on court gameplay more authenticity and the feel of NBA ACTION!, they will keep floundering. EA needs to make NBA Live a head turner, give people a reason to make a double take, give people a reason to switch. They have to be better than average in order to start winning people over again.
    Anyway, the point is: yes, best selling game already, but consider the fact that they are literally the only option basketball fans have right now, and the NBAs popularity is unreal right now. Personally, I hope we have more players in this space in the future, and that EA makes the Live series a true priority.

    I don't think it's an insult or anything. I used your movement sliders back in 2K19, they were great. I was just pointing out that 2K is doing as well as it ever has. Another thing I think is abundantly clear is that 2K is now on the level of a Call of Duty and the other major games that release yearly. It's not just a sports or basketball game. It's a part of the gaming culture now. Live is as irrelevant to 2K today as it is to Call of Duty or Madden or any of the other top yearly games. The handful of people who would get either or is minuscule in the grand scheme. 2K isnt just our little Hoops sim anymore. The sim elements are still certainly there, but it's on another level.

    Sure, they're the only basketball option this year, but fact remains that the NBA is still #3 as far as popularity in the US sports, and both those sports put out yearly games before the NBA does. Sports are still #2 as far as the highest selling genre.
    I say that to say that it's one thing to sell very well, it's another thing to continuously break records. That's something you cant default into. For better or worse depending on the consumer, they have just been insanely successful in what they've built.

    It's going to be harder for more companies to enter the NBA video game market first they have to go up against 2k and then with the NBA getting more popular the license gets more expensive. At least Take Two hasn't signed an exclusive contract yet.

    That blows my mind. On the flip side, you could say that there were no "good" titles launched before NBA 2K20. Let's see how COD does.

    I'm sorry, but the NBA 2K series is too large of a juggernaut for another company to compete against especially in a genre (sports) where the original material doesn't change that much year to year outside of the rosters. Basketball is basketball and the next gen console will allow 2K Sports to do even more with the game in the way of animations and graphics.
    Also, 2KSports actually has a pretty descent track record for adjusting to next gen consoles. At this point, you just have to accept the fact that NBA 2K is on a level that can't be reached, and no company is willing to spend millions to build a basketball game from scratch to "maybe" compete against NBA 2K. That's like hoping that a company will create a game to "compete" against GTA. At a certain point, some games are too far in 1st place that you really have zero chances of competing. NBA 2K is one of few games that can get "negative press" and "fake outrage" and STILL outsell the previous season. NBA 2K has its glitches and quirks, but is it a TERRRIBLE game? Hell no. Despite the "problems" and "frustrations", fools still be playing the hell out of this game. What you're hoping for is a nothing more, but a dream.
    EDIT: There's one other thing to consider. Let's not pretend that 2K Sports won't try to shamelessly steal whatever new idea a new company comes up with.

    This year has been pretty light on the heavy hitters. MK11 is awesome, though. I'm sure COD will be the best selling game pretty soon. I read that God of War just recently passed 10 million units. 2k19 sold 10 million and GOW is a system seller. It's crazy where this game is now, issues and all.
