If you’re on the fence about picking up NBA 2k24 for Nba 2k24 mt the console you already own or plan on upgrading to a next-gen platform this Holiday, there is one edition that’ll cover both sides of the court. The 2K21: Mamba Forever Edition that celebrates Kobe Bryant on the cover will cost you $99.99 but is so far the only edition that will support an upgrade from both PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 as well as Xbox One to Xbox Series X.

Without the Mamba Forever Edition, 2K Games has not announced any other upgrade paths for players that want to start their MyPlayer career on one platform and pick up the controller and keep playing on another without having to purchase another copy. However, all of your MyTeam progress and purchased in-game currency will carry over between platforms; it’s just the game itself that will not.

NBA 2k24 will be available first on current generation platforms including Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Google Stadia beginning September 4th alongside the Mamba Forever Edition. Next-gen releases of NBA 2k24 will launch afterwards this Holiday 2020 at an increased pricepoint of $69.99.

As fans have come to expect, NBA 2k24 does a nice job of balancing depth and accessibility, with everything you need to get by — passing, ball handling, shooting, defense – being intuitively mapped to the two thumbsticks, face buttons, and L and R triggers. Don’t expect any major new additions, like last year’s Takeover mechanic, but NBA 2K developer Visual Concepts have introduced a variety of cheap 2k24 mt welcome tweaks and improvements.
