NBA 2K14 is outselling NBA 2K13 with just the next-gen versions of the game, which is a pleasant and surprising revelation for 2K Sports.

"If you look at the current generation and the next-generation [of NBA 2K14] together, we've actually sold in more units combined than we did last year on just the current generation," said Karl Slatoff, Take-Two President, reports PlayStation Lifestyle. "So you hear a lot in the industry right now about the problems that developers are having in the transition period and the risk that are associated with transition, which are all very true. But in our specific situations, we only have one game right now for next-gen. We're not seeing that."

2K's latest game has gotten rave reviews, and has sold very well in both the next-gen and previous gen versions of the game.

"The PS3 and the 360 version and the PS4 and the Xbox One version are actually different games and with different development cycles behind them. So as a combined unit, we're actually seeing an increase over last year in terms of selling at this point. So we're not seeing… that pain in transition," he continued.

NBA 2K14 just released a new patch update for the Xbox One, and so far it has been nothing but trouble as users have complained of frequent crashes and problems, especially in MyCareer Mode.

During the MyCareer Mode players had to save offline because the network servers were down. Once a gamer tried to make this offline safe, the game has began crashing during a cutscene.

According to Kotaku, 2K Sports said they were aware of the issue concerning all of the problems and are working to fix it.

The patch came out last Tuesday, and was 2GB of updates. It was supposed to fix MyCareer, but seems to have made the problem worse.

Recently, Xbox One owners who like to swear when playing video games, have realized 2K14's unique language filter during the game. Using the Kinect voice sensor, players who curses while playing 2K14 were awarded a technical by the referee's.

NBA 2K14 was released on Oct. 1 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. It arrived for the PS4 on Nov. 15 and the Xbox One on Nov. 22.
