2K Sports is officially taking down NBA 2K14's Server down.
I want to see the same people that hated on Sony for MLB the Show, do the same to 2k.. This is nothing new. I would prefer them to shut the servers down and focus mainly on the new game that's out that I AM playing. I just love how some people do not understand that servers are not kept up for yearly releases for long especially sports games.
The funny thing is you're on here trying to defend Sony...Lol You do know that 2k15 has been out for a while and pretty soon they are gonna announce 2k16. So it makes since to shutdown the old severs to make room for the new version that's coming out later this year. The difference here is Sony announced shutting down the severs of last year's game before the new dropped this year.
Well nba 2k14 is released 6 months before MLB the show 14, so lol the server has been up 50% longer, I don't know how anyone can defend this practice of shutting down servers just 1 year after release, and yes plenty of people play old sports games because they get so cheap
This has nothing to do with Sony. I completely disagree with shutting servers down within a year and a half of games releasing. There should be a minimum commitment by publishers to keep servers running for three years when games are released. I can understand a game's server becoming irrelevant after three years. But after just over a year is ridiculous. Heck, I can still find some brand new unopened NBA 2K14's in some stores.
This trend is concerning. It's ok for them to still take your money and sell 2k14 in their online store but they don't have to support the servers? Just disappointing.
People didn't hate on it cause it was sony they hated it because it was wrong your the person coming in here making this about sony. edit maybe a few trolls but for the most part just concerned upset users.
I just think it's crap to shut down servers on the ones that stay a yr behind,..for many reasons...if they do that they should remove 14 from stores so little johnny mom don't buy it thinking he can play online!!!! Trust me I don't support this no more then i did Sony mlb for same reasons... You got moms, dads, uncles, grandparents all will buy older games.. For kids!!!!
Kids can have fun offline because they probably wouldnt do too great online anyways. I LOVE sports games. Ill get NBA 2k in October when its released then if that game lasts me until summer the following year, that is A LOT of value for $60. By August (if you make it that far) you are getting sick of the game and getting excited for the new version which you are starting to see more screens, video, info etc.. I would like them to keep the servers up but you have to think, its April they need to prepare for NBA 2k16.
See everyone does it, it was nothing new.
That's ok. I'm done with that series. Micro transactions killed it for me. Was my favorite sports game. Greedy dicks.
Thats not even whats killing it for me. I dont buy any of that stuff EVER anyways. Online is horrible. I hate the park mode and waiting in line in a VIDEOGAME to play a game of Basketball. They need crews back, and fix their servers in the first place, because I get all kinds of problems but am fine with almost any other game.
I actually liked the Park mode, although waiting was a bit daft. I never spent money either on the bs available, but they altered the game and made the grind a lot longer in order to upgrade the my player. I'm done with it.
I think shuting down the servers for 2k14 now is way too soon. If you buy a game with online play that game should be supported for at least several years imo. Of course they just want you to buy the new version every year.
Might as well. NBA 2K is already $30 most places.
Everyone is talking about NBA2k 14 while I'm over here still trying to figure out why they have music like "Drop It Like It's Hot" from 2004 or "Everlasting Light" by the Black Keys from 2010 in NBA2K15 I mean make the soundtrack relevant... They even have Pharrell in his Mountie Hat... that big ugly hat that he wore a few times in like 2004 or something... OT: Yeah the Online modes for the NBA2k series aren't the best... MyPark was annoying slow and no one ever passes the ball. The entire presentation of the game is ridiculous.
You can still play cod4 online so see no need to pull the servers- it's disgusting
First of all its wait too soon to shut them down, should shut down after at least 3 years. 2nd why not convert the multiplayer to peer to peer so multiplayer isnt dead on the game? Bunch of greedy bastards and I'm done with the series after getting and barely even playing the last 2 games.
I'm not a sports games type of guy (at all) so I have to ask, who is actually supporting this ridiculous type of a scam? Seriously, if the servers were shut down with a title that I bought this soon after I bought it , I guarantee I would NEVER buy another game from that developer, EVER again. They would soon be out of business in any other genre. Obviously, though, someone IS still buying these games or they wouldn't be doing it, anti-consumer practices like this can only exist if the consumer let's it happen. My own prison I suppose...
