NBA 2K21 it is currently at the center of controversy and no, for once it has nothing to do with lootboxes or reused assets. 2K Games has decided not only to increase the price of the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions, but also to exclude from the possible upgrade anyone will not pay out $ 100 on the game's Mamba Forever Edition.
In this regard, the president of Take-Two Interactive Strauss Zelnick justified - during an interview with GamesIndustry.biz - this decision. In Zelnick's opinion, the price increase will reflect the quality of the product final and it will depend from title to title.
Obviously not everyone is ready to get into the same 2K boat, so much so that software houses like Ubisoft have already confirmed that the price of their securities will remain unchanged. We just have to wait, and hope that NBA 2K21 is just an experiment and not the beginning of a new standard.
