I'll be honest, I've been a little disappointed by the jump up from current/last-gen to the new platforms that released this month when it comes to third-party titles. Being "feature complete" across two generations has obviously limited the scope of some titles on next-gen consoles, and thus rendered the urge to buy into this new tech more of a lazy nudge than an emphatic shove.
But where developers have chosen to fully embrace the opportunities afforded by the extra power of the PS4 and Xbox One, there's hope to be found. Call of Duty: Ghosts runs so much better on next-gen consoles; Battlefield 4 can finally boast the same player count on rigid systems as it can on PC; and then there's NBA 2K14.
Put simply, it might be the best sports game I've ever played.
With that in mind, here's the first of a couple of playthrough videos I constructed. This one looks at some of the improvements on the court, and the changes made to the in-game engine.
