This is something that Overwatch as NBA 2K got right

Look at it from their perspective, though. They don't play games and they like the sport. They have friends and they enjoy playing a couple of matches occasionally. They purchase NBA 2K21 MT Coins and they and their friends play with it. They most likely don't even see the issues, since they don't play games. There is a large difference between hardcore gamer paying a great deal for microtransactions and spending a great deal of money on bad matches, along with a player buying a match and enjoying it without spending anything more on it. We should mostly criticize and the players who are truly currently throwing a lot of cash at these matches.

This is my take on it: If you are going to get long term dedication to supporting NBA 2K - I get it, that costs money. You will find three (more two in how things are done these days) primary possibilities for continuing support that can be utilized:Advertisements, Micro Transactions, DLC (I'm talking more what previously would be termed an expansion by the way, not here is yet another blinged out skin for your character customization options). The difficulty that I have is targeted advertisment if you expect me to pay full price for NBA 2K AND utilize trades AND afterward shard NBA 2K off with DLC's with content.

This is something that Overwatch as NBA 2K got right - mostly (it is micro trade model does have a couple problems - but because pretty well what's earnable through play time it's not a big problem ). I get having product placements and such: But we really need games to function matches. The best alternative in dealing with this, we as consumers have can be loudly NOT complain very loudly until it's fixed, and buy the item until it's repaired. It's rather like training a puppy - we do not provide them treats if they're poor. If they listen and behave themselves we give them treats. In the event of media companies etc.. Treats = money.

I mean if you're going to have a long term commitment to NBA 2K you also don't launch a new version. Like this isn't the type of sport that will be supported for five decades and needs extra revenue sources supply updates. Once 2K22 or whatever drops next year, it's doubtful the current version will have any workers remaining working on it.

The justice package that was humble was purchased by me and it included 2K20. I swore the series but the simulation itself is something I have loved for so long I needed to hop in off. The ad is  Buy NBA 2K21 MT a KIA one, this year and they don't even conceal the fact that they're covering within the UI. They have the option to skip their in-game video series or take part in the questions that they ask. While the advertisement plays, the place in which the skip button is has this shining light that hovers over it. It honestly feels like they're taunting you a bit like"see, this is the point where the button to bypass generally is but you can not press it!"
