Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! The Friday Five is a feature that I post every Friday in which I give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to basketball video games, the real NBA or another area of interest to our community, either as a list of five items or in the form of a Top 5 countdown.
I finally got my hands on the PlayStation 4 in the early hours of this morning, thanks to a midnight launch. As such, I’ve finally been able to play NBA Live 14 and NBA 2K14 next gen. I intend on spending a lot more time with both games before posting detailed impressions and full reviews but for the moment, I’d like to share some early thoughts on both next gen basketball titles.
Before I go any further, I’d like to stress that I’ve spent less than a day with both games, so I will be going into more detail in the future. I also reserve the right to change my mind as I continue to notice the good and bad things in both games, as well as evaluate the changes and fixes made by patches that will come through in the near future. With that said, here are some of my early impressions of NBA Live 14 and NBA 2K14 on PS4, in five points.
