The musical playlists included in this game come from three popular DJs. 98% of the basketball video game sales have gone to the NBA 2K franchise while it continues to grossly outsell the NBA Live franchise by EA Sports.
Metacritic is a website that averages ratings by considering a variety of gamer reviews and it gave an 87/100 rating to NBA 2K16, compared to a measly 59 rating provided to NBA Live 16. However, EA is winning on almost all the other sports-related video games.
For instance, it enjoys an exclusive rights contract by NFL for its Madden NFL video game franchise. In case of hockey, there are no competitors to its NHL series of games. In the meantime, EA has continued to dominate with its FIFA series of games, despite facing some serious competition from Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer franchise.
However, 2K’s NBA 2K16 remains the ruler in basketball, and this is mainly due to the accurate gameplay and immense levels of realism incorporated in the game. Besides, it includes a variety of modes and a drama-packed My Player career story mode.
Stay tuned for more updates and information on NBA 2K16!
