Eco-Motion is the game engine that is utilised by the NBA 2K series on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, first used in NBA 2K14. Its counterpart in the NBA Live series is the EA Sports IGNITE engine.


The Eco-Motion engine was created for NBA 2K's debut on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms, with the intent of powering the game throughout the generation. As the name implies, it allows players to have emotions and respond accordingly, with their performance being affected by hot and cold streaks. It also allows for a greater variety in animations, ensuring that players never perform dunk or shoot a jumpshot exactly the same way twice.
