NBA2K16 : The classic players need a grafics upgrade

Hi
(sorry for my english)

I can understand the classic players weren't a big priority for 2k14 , 2k15.

Don't you think it's time to have a new-gen version of classic players?
It's still old gen textures,skins,faces,jerseys.

I mean,even MJ look better in the 2k11 2k12 version than 2k14,2k15 new gen.
I don't recognise him when i play with MJ
This skinny guy is supposed to be Michael Jordan
Spoiler


The gap between photorealism of current players and ps360 textures of classic players is way too big.
I know 2K can't facescan classic players but they definitely can do way better than that

Spoiler


What do you think?

Re: NBA2K16 : The classic players need a grafics upgrade

Undoubtedly, and understandably, 2K's had bigger fish to fry the last few years than concentrating on classic team art. I don't fault them, though I wish it wasn't so.

That said, with the mention of some new classic teams coming our way this year, hopefully that falls in line with a slight re-commitment to realism with these squads, at least in terms of getting some likenesses up to par.

I'd suppose this thread would be a good place for my last-gen/current-gen Bill Russell comparison photos:

Current gen:

I can't agree more man! Legendary players needs a great graphic update. 2K can't be lazy again.

Praying 2k hire some more people from NLSC to do their art like they did last year when they hire people from the OS community (DaCzar) and someone from NLSC (i.e. jaosming)

I think 2k needs to bring back Horace Grant's all white goggles asap.I don't understand why are his goggles blue for those classic Chicago Bulls teams smh.

Mitch Richmond doesn't look like Mitch Richmond at all and neither does Tim Hardaway in current gen.

Oh christ. That's bad.

I think part of the problem is they can't scan all the older players like they do current players, and even the current players they can get high res photos to work with. That's a little more difficult with bench players from the 70s knicks. Even though that is one of the legendary NBA players.

But still, no excuse. They probably just skimped on crafting models because "people only care about the current players and MJ, Pippen, etc." Shaq looks ****ing horrible in this game too.

How do you launch a game with Allen Iverson (Your former cover athlete BTW) looking like this:



I swear he looked better in NBA 2K3 lol...

The fact that NBA 2K15 has anything even somewhat in common graphically with a still-in-progress NBA 2K4 is probably not great:
