    If it's nothing more than updated rosters and improvements to the micro-transaction part of the game then I'm going to give this one a miss

    Will be nothing more than a glorified micro-transaction ruined pay to win Roster update. 2k18's MyTeam was the last straw for me, Could only purchase boxes with VC, not MT points, almost impossible to do challenges and not purchase contracts, and standard pay to win MyPlayer

    MyTeam is a throwaway mode now, they put sparkly players over any sort of game balancing. 5-out wouldn't break the game if players had realistic abilities.

    Neighbourhood is just an excuse to fit in 5x the advertisements, so it will be coming back.

    I hate the game ethically but the gameplay is great so I'll cop it.

    Will be the first 2k I miss since 2012. Last year was it for me. I like playing the mycareer but the story is so far fetched now its hard to get into and the grind now is ridiculous. The sad thing about it all....Its an NBA game....How hard is it make an interesting career mode?

    The last 2 NBA2k games I've gotten were Free via PSN (2017) and On sale for $10 (2018) and I'll be doing the same either waiting for it to be free or super cheap.

    I only want it for the MyGM/League gamemode and couldn't give a rats about their ultimate team version of the game.

    Will not be getting this launch day. It's a become a money grabbing pit that has gotten ridiculous. You want a tattoo = 200VC. Don't like it now = 150vc to remove it.

    Even shirts and hair cuts are vc pits that you don't keep. You change it. You lose it

    I'm with you. 2k have lost the plot completely. They've developed a fantastic basketball sim, and hidden it behind a wall of microtransactions.

    They're supposedly letting up a bit on the VC this year but I'll believe it when I see it.

    I skipped last year and went my first year without a bball game since probably Live 96, it's just too brutal with what they've down with VC over the years. It's a shame it doesn't get as much publicity as some of the other games recently that have had uproars about that sort of stuff because it's been just invasive as all those things if not worse for years but seems to go under the radar because it's a sports game.
