It's a bit later than their usual news cycle, but 2K is slowly providing NBA 2K21...

Definitely a demo I'm going to have to try out before I decide whether or not to purchase. Even then I'll probably wait at least a week or so to check out gameplay videos. We'll see, some interesting gameplay changes though.*

We hope that the demo is more consistent than the previous ones, in order to be able to evaluate well whether to buy it

When will us as consumers take a stand against this franchise selling us a modified carbon copy for $60 plus VC costs year after year?

Not unexpected but it looks like current gen 2K21 is the year of refinement. That's not a bad thing at all as 2K20 is pretty good. I'll definitely use the demo though to feel out the new mechanics.

Shot stick aiming sounds crazy complicated to me especially for layups.

Beluba,

I think you are saying with the new aiming shot stick you can still aim the shot essentially on the way down to get the target right but can you still "green" with late timing?

Or is it "perfect" timed shot stick plus perfect "aim" equals a chance of "green". You didnt really say that so I take it something else may be happening under the hood where perfect aim and timing might not be a "green"

2K has to stop changing the controls every year, this is getting insane. I do love the fact that they're trying to make shooting and finishing more skillful tho. Hopefully it works. Thank you Mike Wang.

August 24th for a demo is pointless tho. Why release a demo 2 weeks before the game come out? Are you really looking for feedback at that point?
