As we've seen from the gameplay trailer which released last month, the images will be nearly identical, if not equal to NBA 2K20. Even though this could be a problem for some, I am fine with this bit of stagnation. It's not likely to get far better on PS4 and XB1 than that which we find here. Secondlyit would be foolish to presume 2K would wish to invest in enhancing the item visually if they stand to benefit from delivering a next-gen version that will be hyped up mainly because of how amazing it looks. 2K and every other manufacturer of yearly sports video games may want the gap between current and next-gen to be very noticeable from a visual perspective. As a customer, I'm fine with that strategy.
Soundtracks are cool and all, but quite frankly, I struggle to find the real long-term worth in investing a lot into this component of a match. Nevertheless, we've already seen the soundtrack which is going to be in the game and depending upon your own personal tastes, you are either elated, disappointed, or could care less about the songs included. I am good with what's coming on this front, and as far as commentary, I can wait for the next-gen versions for a significant jump in this area. Some really cool things could be done to make what's already very good commentary in the game even better.
