NBA 2K14 next-gen trailer revealed

"OMG Trailer" features actual in-game footage captured on PlayStation 4.

2K Sports today released the first next-generation gameplay trailer for NBA 2K14. The "OMG Trailer" (below) features actual in-game footage captured on a PlayStation 4.

It is set to Phil Collins' popular song "In The Air Tonight," one of the 20 tracks selected by cover star LeBron James for the game's soundtrack.

The trailer features some of the NBA's biggest stars, including James, Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Anthony Davis.

On Monday, 2K Sports released the first NBA 2K14 next-generation screenshot, also captured on the PS4.

I'll give them credit; This shit looks awesome! I still want to see some real game play before I throw down $450+ just to play it.

I'm one of the people on the fence of whether or not to buy a new system before 2014.

Impressive. We have FINALLY made it to an era where the player models actually have a likeness to the real athletes. The only player in this trailer who stood out badly was Kobe. They didn't get the face right.

Wow.. 2K Sports does it again... wow!  The detail is amazing.  EA didn't need to comeback with Live...

Looks cool but I refuse to buy next gen until I play and complete Dark Souls 2. I'm not making the jump to next generation so that I can take a step back to play games like Dark Souls 2. I will wait until the spring or summer.

Is there a place that shows footage of the other teams? I wanna see how the T-Wolves look.

So, this game footage was captured on a PS4 or on a PS4 dev kit?

Looks good but I'm hoping the game modes aren't stripped down like some of the current gens early sports titles.

The only thing that turns me off about this game is its overemphasis on LeBron James. Is this game for LBJ fans only?

idk which one i'll get for the PS4 - EA or 2k 

The last NBA Live I purchased was the one with Dwight on the cover. Since then, I've been playing 2k...

They are really close, not quite there yet though. 

It is insane how detailed graphics have gotten in the last 30 years. When I was a kid, I never would have thought videogames could get this close to photorealism.

when playing online will players be able to throw full court touchdown passes to lebron for a cheese dunk like 2k13or do that  spin move inside that works everytime if so i have no interest in the game...also 2k stop turning players cyberfaces arms and legs black as coal if you didnt do that i would be buying this..

And after watching the game footage.. I still have no idea what the gameplay will look like.. unless your camera angle is located under one of the baskets or 2 inches away from the player with the ball!

@Xristophoros Looks like Kobe to me. Not perfect, but we can all tell it's Kobe, even if he weren't wearing the uniform.

@Xristophoros I agree,  though gameplay is a huge huge factor in a game.  I'm one who will avoid games altogether if the players don't look right or feel right.

@reese357262 Well come on now,  BF4 is the choice here.  The graphics is all 2k is showing here, if its anything like the current gen game its going to suck.

@soda128 Have you played the game on current gen?  It sucks, worst one ever by 2k.  Your a moron if you think EA didn't need to come back.  They needed to come to to provide competition, look at 2 the past several years the game has been slacking and this is due to the fact they didn't need to put in a full effort to make the game.  Watch next year both games are going to be pushing one another and its the way it needs to be to get the best possible game from both 2k and EA

@soda128 EAs basketball games have never been as good as 2Ks. You are right, they have no chance in hell in bettering the 2K series and should just stick with hockey, football and whatever else.

@bunchanumbers I'm up in the North Dakota area, so small team footage would be nice from teams such as the wolves or my fav the hawks( yes I think I am the only hawks fan in the tri state area up here)

@bf210 most likely will be the issue because, then in 2 years they can readd it and tell everyone to look at the new modes lol.

@tomservo51 i thought 2k 13 was lebrons game he is so overpowerd on that game most people online only use him and no matter what you do he can beat a whole team by his self.

@RossRichard Now, imagine sport games running the frostbite 3 engine.

@gamespotpanayis You wont see any true gameplay footage until Nov. 15th sadly.  It's odd how they wont show sports game footage, but will show RPG games and Action games gameplay footage.  Like whats the big secret, with sports games lol.

NFL 2K5 was the best football game ever made...it was so good EA got scared and bought the rights to the NFL that year...forever put 2K out the game and sticking us with the same ol rehashed shit every year with updated visuals...damn I miss playing football!!!!

@Gegglington @nore105 That might be the smart thing to do.  You mean xmas 2014? that would be a year lol.  But either way waiting until next holiday season is smart because next gen will be in full swing.

@Cold_n_Tired @bunchanumbers  

the only hawks fan in Los Angeles, been dying to watch them play out here. but ever since the clippers got good, the ticket prices have gone up and i cant afford to watch a game... pretty sad how josh left for the money.

@atlanticmoon lol, was going to say EA left the basketball game in 07.  I'd wait to see true gameplay footage of both, which is what I'm doing.  The current gen 2k game sucks hard, so thats not making great news for next gen.  And Sony and MS wont let EA show any gameplay footage which bothers me, though excites me at the same time because it could be great or a let down.

@smackdaniel2003 So true. NFL 2K5 remains to be the greatest football game ever made. The Madden fanboys hate on it because they sucked at it, and the gameplay was too realistic compared to Madden. 2K5 was slower paced, and players didn't move like they were ice skating. They felt like they had some weight on them. Graphically, 2K5 made every Madden of that time look like PS1 games. Such a huge difference! Lastly, the presentation is still one of the best I've seen in any sports game.
