The VR has seen neglection from most sports video games genre till now. 2K sports has announced the release of VR version for NBA 2K17 for the Play Station 4 . The virtual reality version of NBA 2K17 includes series of minigames for $14.99 now available on PlayStation 4, Samsung Gear VR and HTC Vive.
Instead of a virtual reality version of the game. Gamers are getting a different type of game narrated by NBA 2K17’s game’s cover athlete Paul George.
Players play a series of timed challenges once in the game: three-point shootout mode and the buzzer beater and more. Also, attaining Gatorade boosts in the game will allow you to earn attribute points.
The trailer looks impressive and it’s fair to say that VR will make a perfect addition to the sports game series. With virtual reality sports games becoming more frequent we might run into a few problems. One of the problems we’ll face is virtual reality sports games with current technology limits the gamers ability to become stimulated once inside virtual reality. Since current technology can not beat the realism of playing basketball in real life. With that being said, if NBA 2K17 can not provide accurate virtual reality in the way a player interacts with the world. Another problem we might encounter is sports game we are playing will become apparent that it’s no longer stimulated our needs for a digital version of what having a basketball career would be like.
