NBA 2K19: It’s VC Points Or Endless Grinding!

By  | 

In a matter of hours from now, 2K will launch NBA 2K19 but we would advise you to wait out a week into the game’s debut before deciding on buying it.

In doing so, you will have ample time to read the early reviews and see if NBA 2K19 is worth the purchase. This is important because NBA 2K19 doesn’t promise any solution to the heavy grinding gameplay in NBA 2K18.

Even 2K’s recent statement on grinding has indicated that the mechanism will remain in NBA 2K19. 2K cited that microtransactions and heavy grindings are an unfortunate reality of the gaming scene today and fans should just accept it. You can check out the transcript below.

“Every game, at some point, in some way has currency and they’re trying to get additional revenue from each player that plays the game. You know, the question has to be when does it feel like it’s a straight money grab versus when does it feel like it’s value added, right?

We know nowadays that most people don’t have the patience to work their way to the top. They just wanna be there right away. So, you know, we look at it as, oh it’s an opportunity for us to allow you to skip the grind, but then if the grind is too long, like some people felt last year, they’re gonna sit there and they’re gonna go ‘well, you knew the grind was too long to begin with.”
