NBA 2K21 PS4 vs PS5 differences are important to know for any fans who contemplate picking up a next-generation console.
The next-gen upgrade to the popular sports game is perhaps the biggest difference in all of gaming when comparing the two versions of NBA 2K21 this holiday season.
NBA 2K21 PS4 vs PS5 Differences
While PlayStation 5 fans will have to wait two days after the NBA 2K21 Next Gen officially releases for Xbox Series X and S, the upgrade should be well worth it.
With a game that's been hindered by poor loading times on current-gen, and a smaller player base on Xbox, NBA 2K21 Next Gen seems primed to be best played on the highly-anticipated PS5.
There's a reason why NBA 2K21 Next Gen has been propped up as one of Sony's premier PS5 launch titles — the next-gen version of the game is rebuilt from the ground up.
From a much-needed simulation basketball gameplay revamp, to a new MyPlayer experience complete with a reimagined MyPlayer Builder and The City, NBA 2K21 Next Gen expects to offer a night-and-day improvement on its current-gen rehash.
Keep in mind that all VC and MyTeam points from the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of the game will carry over — on the same console family — to next gen.
With the next-gen launch version of NBA 2K21 having been leaked to be 121.7 GB for the Xbox Series X, expect the PS5 version to be in the same ballpark thanks to its rivaling 4K/60fps capabilities.
NBA 2K21 Next Gen officially drops Nov. 10 for Xbox Series X and S, and Nov. 12 for PlayStation 4 and 5.
