A new NBA 2K14 software update rolled out earlier this week for the Xbox One.
It was released for the Microsoft console yesterday and will be available to PS4 users shortly. This new patch resolves issues users were having with uploading or playing any previously saved files. It also helps those who were unable to properly negotiate contracts in MyGM.
Other players whose Friend invites were barring some players from joining Head-to-Head and Team Up matchmaking will no longer have that issue with the patch. It also addresses problems where the game would be unresponsive when booted without being signed into a profile and where the game would sometimes exit out shortly after a boot if a number of content update notifications were listed. It improves the performance of The Park, corrects thumbnail issues and introduces the ability to progress to the next round of the playoffs when playing a deciding game in MyGM.
The latest updates are fully listed in the official 2K blog. The game is also expected to receive a "ton of new jerseys" in the near future, according to Ronnie Singh, the 2K Sports community manager.
NBA 2K14 was recently crowned as the best selling sports title in the U.S. for next-gen consoles, the PS4 and Xbox One. The game outsold FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, and NBA Live 14, according to NPD data.
It was overall the top selling game on both consoles as well, and sixth best selling game when all console versions were added in, USA Today reports.
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, they announced Friday.
"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."
