Across several of the latest sports games around today, there remains a major bug that seems to be causing Xbox Series X consoles to randomly shut off during gameplay, especially in NBA 2K22.

Although it was previously reported by Xbox Support that the issue had been fixed on Sept. 23, it's remained clear that the problem is still occurring for a lot of players, even after NBA 2K22's latest 1.6 patch. For those tired of running into the issue, here's a solution you might want to try, as found on the r/NBA2k Subreddit.

Whether it's in MyTeam, The Old Gym or the Brickley Gym in MyCareer, Xbox Series X players are still reporting at the time of writing that their consoles continue to power off while trying to play NBA 2K22.

Although some speculate that the issue stems from the Series X overheating during online games, what remains clear is that the problem must be fixed on 2K and Xbox's side of things.

On Sept. 30, however, u/Suitable_Special_380 posted a thread suggesting a temporary fix that those still running into the bug may want to try.

The method essentially boils down to switching your camera view to broadcast view for at least one possession and then switching back to much more popular 2K camera angle.

For some reason, it seems as if switching to the broadcast camera for a bit may stop the glitch happening. While it may cause you to tank a possession or two, it would definitely be worth it if it meant avoid the powering off bug.

Of course, this is only a temporary suggestion, so hopefully 2K addresses and solves this issue soon, along with the elevator bug on NBA 2K22 Current Gen.
