  1. Do you really think he lied, or is it more probable that they changed the release time. I would have liked to play it tonight, but it's fine to wait until after work tomorrow.

    If he doesn't know, he needs to start saying that then. Last year he put out so many LIES, it was ridiculous.

    Lol so invested at the dude. I learned a long time ago to take everything he says with a grain of salt. Game coming out soon anyway just sit back and wait.

    That's not the point tho. If 2K employees are blatantly lying about the game, is that not an issue? Again, this isn't the first time he's done this either...

    Don't take that frustration on me for believing him in the first place. If he "lied" in the past why do you keep hanging on the guys word now?
    Demo comes out tonight so I'm not gonna get on a why Ronnie lying discussion. Lol

    Another hour until it drops. Which will be 11pm here in Oz for me 😆
    I'll try stay up until midnight to see if you guys get to play some by then.
    I'll download it tomorrow after work if its worthwhile..
    Any word on what this demo will be ?
    Same stuff like the last 3-4 years.....?
    Scan/make your face, select Architype ?
    Only real nba action is 2ku ??
    Also, anyone just done with PS4 nba 2k and have no interest in the Ps4 version anymore, and are all in/all about PS5 nba 2k ?

    I'm thinking new archetype system & player builder, new teams to play with.. the obvious ones haha
    Hopefully its decent & we can mess aound with trying out builds for a week..
    I can't remember if last yrs demo had a limit on how many builds we could make & try out.
    I wasnt going to worry about the current gen game, but it would be tough seeing all the news/reviews here & on youtube and not playing it myself.
    I'll likely get the Lillard version on PS4, get Kobe with the PS5.

    Why payin twice? Just get the mamba edition(100$) and you will have the ps5 upgrade, instead of paying 130$

    Probably wants both covers. I was considering getting both Kobe editions to have both covers.

    If that's all it's going to be I have very little interest in the demo itself. I really don't plan on getting a PS5 at least until The Show 21 drops. That being said, I'll still interested in the current gen 2k and hope that it's good, I just don't have much optimism for it after the last 3 years. 2k17 was the last one I truly enjoyed.

    same here but i think Sony need fix their PSN store server better before PS5 come out

    Agreed.... 10:26est and still no Demo in ps4 store. Unless I'm doing something wrong... i've searched, gone to Games>Demo's, etc.

    I saw it once, as an icon/button to click, but it's gone after a restart of my ps4. I see it as "Demo out now" but it just takes me to the preorders.
    It says demo available for ps4 but I get nothing lol oh well guess I will download later when I get home from work

    Im in, presentation looks the exact same as last year so far. 6min quarters. Theres a ugly shot clock on the freethrow line. Hopefully it can be turned off.

    is there difficulty to choose ? does it have same scoreboard like last year ?

    Are you in ps4 or Xbox? Still not listed in ps4 store on my machine.

    Same scoreboard, no option to change difficulty. Players are a lot heavier. Difficult to close out on the 3 point shooter. Outside of that and new shot meter it seems like the same game so far.

    does gameplay feel same from 2k20 or are there some change in gameplay ?
    I’m going through the same issue guys . I just again clicked on the demo available icon , and got my preorder screen . Something isn’t right , and I’m not sure what it is
    m1ke_nyc
    Its early but the only difference I feel so far is players are heavy. Heres a pic of the shot clock. It needs to go.

    lol picture is clockwise down. not top. it hard to see
    If you create your player in the demo, it transfers to the retail copy (like other years).
    But will your player transfer from ps4 to PS5 ?
    A bunch of sheep clamoring over a broken ass demo for a likely broken ass game that is another $60 carbon copy where they tune up (aka mess up) gameplay and physics all in the name of slapping a new title on it for you to buy. WHEN WILL WE WISE UP AND DEMAND MORE FROM THE 2K FRANCHISE!???????

    ...I don't think you know what "broken" means. That term is so misused. Not liking certain mechanics or changes doesn't automatically make it broken.
    I'll buy 2K21 because I know I'll put in 200-300 hours like I have for each one in the past 10 years. The series has never been a literal carbon copy, there are always some refinements and tweaks being made to (IMO) improve the experience and make it more fluid which I appreciate.

    If the game isnt for you then move on to something else. Why do you care what others think of a broken carbon copy game? It's not your money or time to spend.
