  1. Damn as a life long Sony fanboy who doesn't have a next-gen console, it's tough to not pick up an Xbox Series X (or whatever the next gen is called) with the amount of value this game pass has.

    Not to start a console war, but that X-Box Ultimate Game Pass is the real deal. I have played a LOT of good games due to it. Heck...if you're a sports fan, I think they added all the latest sports title to it.

    Not surprising. I don't think I've seen next-gen digital even go to a sale price yet, let alone "free".

    Madden 21.
    EDIT: What am I thinking??? This means that I can download the current gen version, since it's BC on the XBSX. Meh...this might renew my interest in the game, since I'm really not having fun with the next-gen version.

    Meant NBA2k next-gen. Sorry for not clarifying.
    Been looking for it, too (the PS5 version, that is) - I am interested in it but probably won't play it enough to justify it at full price. I have seen the physical version lower in some places but I have a discless PS5.
    This is 6 months after release, when basketball season is getting closer to being over, and it's only for current gen, relax people, the world is not ending

    Just downloaded it...I'm going to be highly upset if current gen plays better than the next-gen on the XBSX.

    You can still dashboard on current gen. Chalk up that point to current gen.

    Thus far, the game is taking advantage of the XBSX power, so loading times are definitely faster and quick resume works. Graphically...it looks the "same" to me on the broadcast camera minus the actual stadium. Before anyone say anything, I'm NOT that big on artwork. I said this in the PNO thread, love the fact that I got the better OTF menu...I can actually CHOOSE my freaking freelances. So far, current gen does have some advantages over next-gen. I might try to squeeze in a quick game in PNO on my lunch break today. Current generation PNO looks like they have more people playing, so I'm going to try to unlock the All-Time Pacers there.

    So glad i spent that extra hundred bucks smh.
    The game released 6 months ago my man lol
    You paid that $100 for Kobe and an upgrade to next gen. Not for exclusive access to the game for eternity.

    If I'm just a MyLeague guy, is it worth it to start a franchise up on 2k21, or just stick with 2k20?
    Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Operation Sports mobile app

    From what I've seen (DL the game two days ago) there's nothing new in 21 Vs 20 when it comes to myleague.
    Gameplay wise it feels a bit different,can't really tell from just playing for a day or two,but it feels better,need to set it up with some good sliders to see if it plays better/worse.
    But to me it looks better (animations/player movement) but if you already are deep in to a career on 20 I'd stick to that.
