2K On NBA 2K14: Next-Gen Means “Getting Everything Right”

2K On NBA 2K14: Next Gen Means Getting Everything Right”Yesterday, I had an opportunity to take a look at the next-gen NBA 2K14 basketball game in San Francisco. The 2K team had brought a number of demo systems and even a head scan setup to show us a peek at the 2K14 “behind the scenes” game production.

The dates vary by carrier, however, and they won’t all roll out at the same time.
