On Tuesday, 2K Sports rolled out their latest patch for their annual NBA game, which has made improvements to the PlayStation 4 Pro experience. Also, it fixed a few issues with the Neighborhood, improved MyPlayer Nation, although the devs didn’t go into detail about what the improvements were.

After the patch, 2K Sports provided the following notes regarding NBA 2K20’s latest update.

  • Improved the PlayStation 4 Pro experience for PS4 Pro users.
  • Improvements to the MyPlayer Nation feature in MyCareer.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented users from joining their friends in the Neighborhood, and/or would load players into the wrong location.

Even though there was a ton of controversy surrounding 2K’s annual NBA game before it launched back in September, NBA 2K20 has become the biggest game of the year in terms of sales, as it has done big business in the United States.

Before the release of NBA 2K20, the most successful game in the United States for this year was Mortal Kombat 11.

In fact, despite the controversy, NBA 2K20 had more sales in its first month than any other sports game in history. So, it would appear that the microtransaction controversy surrounding the annual title had little to no impact on the game’s sales.

After the release of NBA 2K20, it was reported that 2K’s NBA franchise had become the sixth-best-selling video game series of all time, surpassing the Guitar Hero franchise. Originally an exclusive title for the Sega Dreamcast, the very first game in the franchise was released back on November 10, 1999, and the series has had an annual entry in each subsequent year.

As of right now, the NBA 2K franchise doesn’t have any competition, as the EA Sports NBA Live franchise has been dead for quite some time. This year’s NBA Live game, which was originally delayed until December, was just recently canned by EA, as they’re now focused on developing an NBA game for the next-generation of consoles.

If you’re looking for an alternative to NBA 2K20, then, well, you’ll have to look to NBA Playgrounds 2, which is also owned by 2K. Also, it’s not a traditional basketball game, as it’s a 2v2 arcade experience which is similar to the classic NBA Jam series.

So, for now, players are stuck with NBA 2K20 until the next generation, where EA will hopefully be able to revive the NBA Live franchise and finally give 2K Sports some stiff competition.
