2K Games has admitted it is a bit embarrassing that the controls have changed in NBA 2K14.
That’s kind of regrettable to be honest with you, we don’t want to change it every year. The idea going into 13 was trying to build what we actually shipped in 14. After an entire year of iteration and trying to solve the problems of putting two major mechanics on one stick without modifiers, it wasn’t ready [for NBA 2K13] so we took the plan B route. 14 is what we really wanted it to be,” he said, commenting that he finds it a bit embarrassing.
This is the third time in three years that the controls have been altered. If you’re picking up NBA 2K14 next week, be sure to read up on the new controls scheme!
