NBA 2K14 PS4 Dev Diary: MyCAREER

Ronnie Singh's Avatar Posted by Sr. Community Manager, 2K Games

MyCAREER has been one of NBA 2K14‘s most-played modes. The question is, with the next generation of technology, how do we create a fresh experience beyond playing games on the court? Creating a new cinematic experience that rivals a Hollywood film – that’s how!

With over 300 pages of script, MyCAREER on PS4 takes you on an emotional journey like you’ve never experienced before. Our goal was to place you IN the game. From competing on the court, to decisions you make off the court, the experience has been expanded in an immersive journey through next gen technology.

For example, early on you may not get the minutes you want as a rookie. As your team calls a timeout, you have a decision to make – remain sitting or get up and celebrate with your teammates. Each decision affects the way you are viewed both from your team’s viewpoint and the way fans look at you. This is just one of many deep decisions you make, with your actions opening up hours and hours of completely new content both on and off the court.

NBA 2K14 on PS4, 07

Things like personality, choosing to answer in polite ways or with arrogance, fans liking you, endorsements and personality badges all factor into your decisions. Even choosing which endorsements to sign with (ala adidas, Nike or Jordan brand, for example) have an effect on your career. Your decisions even affect things like potential trades, social media feeds and endorsements and MyCAREER relationships (team chemistry, GM relationships, loyalty with local and national fans etc). Things like rhythm and team chemistry can impact the way your team plays. The first year experience will take you through all 82 games, and you can chose to play Key Games in the second season onward.

Simply put, MyCAREER lets you make decisions about your NBA career like never before seen. Of course, this is just a small taste of the exciting next-gen MyCAREER mode. We have plenty of surprises up our sleeves. You can grab NBA 2K14 on PS4 right now! Get your journey started and make a name for yourself. This is your story. Your legacy. Your career.

Give me a follow on Twitter @Ronnie2K for all the NBA 2K14 goodness. Thanks for reading!

How do i change the length of the quarters in my career and all of the gear i put on my player won’t stay

im loving the game but its no way to like get drafted 1st pick and your rival pretty much succeeds over u which isnt bad but my issue is the tribal tattoos, can we get like another pack for that to make the tattoos cover the whole area and be able to have chest, back, and hand tattoos too? or a pack to get tattoos similar to our fav nba stars? that would be wonderful!

goldenprice23 said:

December 9th, 9:12 pm

is it a glitch when u put your accessories on your myplayer for the park mode and it doesnt stay on it; like it will act like its loading onto it then stays the same and can we have a few more designs for the hair too? hope im not asking too much 2k CEOs and staff *jordan shrugs*

Ronnie please reply. Normally not one to complain, and go as far as to reach out about something like this. But let me start by saying NBA 2k14 for the next gen is a FAIL. I personally love the game, but the MYCAREER experience was completely ruined with this ce-34878-0 glitch/corruption. I have made 3 characters and have purchased the 35k VC each time, and i have been refunded 3 times now! by sony. This is getting old. BY THE WAY the latest patch does not fix this error at all! My character got corrupted yesterday. You guys at 2K need to get this **** straight, and patch this mass error once and for all. Because of this issue this game is honestly ruined for me

Also as a side comment, i would like to let you know the tattoos kind of suck. Some are just very bold prints and others are faded. The tattoos lack detail for a “NEXT GEN” game. I expected to see detailed tattoos maybe even sleeves of some sort. Also whats with the off court clothes you can wear in cut scenes and the park, why do they not show up on blacktop? doesnt really make sense… JUST FIX THE MYCAREER GLITCH, STOP MAKING US SUFFER !

Hey Ronnie Singh, how do we get compensated for Lost Purchased VC due to File Corruption that occurred after Downloading Patch #2? I’ve called 2K Support and sent them my PSNid: wlh1361_ my 2K email_along with screenshots of the actual corrupted files and still nobody has reimbursed me yet. I understand losing the VC earned via gameplay, but losing $50 of real money spent on VC has to be compensated for (feel me). I was telling them the easy way to settle this is to just give me a Locker Code Worth the 205,000 VC that I purchased and lost. Seeing that they couldn’t help me, I’m hoping YOU being “Sr. Manager” of 2K could bring me some justice. I have all of my files and evidence if you need to see them for proof of file corruption.


PS (It’s been Weeks since I last played 2K14, and I’m really feeling the NEW myPlayer Career. And really just want to get back to playing the best story lined sports game of this NXTgeneration)

How come I don’t see “GAMEDAY GEAR STORE” in MyPlayer Store?

Sinister_S1lence said:

December 11th, 2:28 am

Hey, for some reason, when I try to load the Store I can’t see any of the in game accessories (gameday, ie. Headbands, shooting sleeves). Any reason for this?

Kal-El_N7 said:

December 11th, 8:43 pm

The Game Day Gear section of the Champs shop seems to have disappeared. There is no way to purchase accessories for my mycareer player both in the mycareer menus and outside in the main menu as well.

Tphr3sh92 said:

December 11th, 10:30 pm

Mycareer is crashing after 6 games nd the myplayer store is missing the game day accessories. Any timetable on when it will be fixed?? I’m irritated about 2k14 now.

Tphr3sh92 said:

December 11th, 10:32 pm

Any way to change socks it was in past 2k games but now it’s completely gone in 2k14 I believe it stopped after 2k11 or 12.

Hey Ronnie,

i give u props for answering multiple questions however, i noticed u’ve mentioned quite alot about reaching out to @2ksupport on twitter or via email. I’m assuming that u’ve never done it urself. THEY NEVER GET BACK TO U! let me repeat, THEY NEVER (let me add EVER) get back to u. so why brush people off who need resolution to the game they love playing. patch maybe great but still lots of issues and that nba2k14 fans will be left in the dark.

I’ve played nba2k over 6 yrs now and not once 2k support gotten back to me. i usually get my answers through forums or via internet. i can tell u this much. this will be my last NBA2k game for me. I’ve had it with early release where u wait in line and pick up a game and the game has too many issues. u shouldnt release something that is not perfect. ps4 version graphic is great but lets be real and admit that ya’ll rushed it with 80% product that still needs work while gamers suffer. seriously, talk to ur people in upper chain. SUPPORT is completely useless.

NuGG_L3sS said:

December 12th, 9:54 am

Also cant access game day accessories for my player / career. If we can get a confirmed answer as to if this is a glitch a few of us are going through or has it been removed for some reason?Would very much appreciate an answer soon.

ORochedo said:

December 12th, 3:01 pm

Hello, today i wanted to buy a sleeve so i went to the store but there was no game day gear anymore, i just hope that you can fix it please

SwagForDays_23 said:

December 12th, 3:19 pm

Hey ronnies ive been trying to buy gear for my player but the game day gear does not show up what so ever when I go to do this…what should I do?

DeLaRatchet said:

December 13th, 2:29 am

So the “Game Day Gear” tab isn’t showing up in the champs store for my myplayer. Is this a bug or something that needs to be fixed? I really want to customize my myplayer with some accessories!

KJStewart93 said:

December 13th, 4:19 pm

When I make people quit in online quick matches I don’t get any VC
I can’t wear accessories without my ps4 crashing in my career
HoF makes my team incredibly stupid but thats always been like that
I can’t play park mode at all where is CREW
my player’s accessories or clothes that I used real money to buy won’t show up on the court or outside the court

Hey I finally earned the vc to buy some shoes and I bought some adidas shoes and equipped them in the myplayer closet but when I go to mycareer my player still has those generic shoes on. What can I do to fix this or will there be a fix for this?

entimecago said:

December 14th, 11:45 am

Ok, after about a month, and playing this about 4 times a week, here is what I think. First off, no practice ground in my career?????? are you kidding me right now? so you can’t test your shots releases? your new dunks? your crossovers? Ok, whatever I can live with that, what’s next, oh sitting on the bench with the Utah Jazz in my Carer mode, avg 30 pts per game and 6 assists, and A every game….88 RATING!!
But most importantly and why I stopped playing is, WHERE the hell is the game day gear tab??? I can’t find it, it disappeared!!!

R00KIE-Killa96 said:

December 14th, 11:53 am

I was jus wondering why there are two different vc stacks.. When I go on my career I have a stack of vc then when I go home screen it’s a different set. Is it supposed to be like that or is it glitched?

R00KIE-Killa96 said:

December 14th, 11:56 am

The vc I get outside mycareer doesn’t carry over to upgrades for my career

Diamond_Fang said:

December 14th, 1:58 pm

I’m having some problems when playing in the park. I go to play and myplayer is only overall 25, when he is overall 80 in mycareer. I don’t understand why it’s making me such a low overall.

JCPR_2823 said:

December 15th, 7:36 am

Hey, don’t know what’s wrong that in my playerstore I do not have the option to buy gameday accesories… It’s there some kind of solution to this? thanx

El_Duderino_09 said:

December 15th, 3:38 pm

Ok…I’ve tried contacting @2ksupport and have not had any reply. I purchased VC in mycareer…and it added to the main menu, but not to mycareer. Whats the point of buying it if I cant upgrade my player’s attributes?

Please reply Ronnie…I’m getting pretty frustrated about this.

El_Duderino_09 said:

December 15th, 3:40 pm

Same issue for me ROOKIE-Killa96

Black_Heat_23 said:

December 15th, 4:36 pm

Hey Ronnie, I just got my ps4 and i got 2k for it. I started playing mycareer and then relized that i couldnt buy any accesories. They werent in the store either! Can u help me with this?

Agent_39 said:

December 15th, 10:07 pm

I finally got offered a shoe endorsement with Nike and Jordan and I chose Jordan, but when I go into My Player Dressing Room, I can’t put on any of the Jordans I bought. It keeps making me wear the ugly ass 2K brand shoe. WTF CAN I DO TO BE ABLE TO WEAR MY JORDAN BRAND SHOES???

SurrenderM0nk_E said:

December 16th, 3:20 pm

Gameday Gear Store doesn’t appear anywhere in the game !

JimmyMassacre said:

December 16th, 6:31 pm

Hello Ronnie. I’ve had NBA 2k14 since day 1 and I’ve been trying to build myplayer up for park. He’s an 86 overall, but when I go into Park mode, he’s only a 25. I’ve already invested a lot of time into this player and I’ve spent $10 at the playstation store for VC, so I’m really hoping I don’t have to delete the myplayer that I’ve been working on.

I read your response to a previous post that it was just a visual error and that everyone’s myplayer is in reality has the ability levels that the should. I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that this is not the case. Myplayer is slow, tires quickly, responses poorly, and has no shooting range when in single player he’s a very quick, has a high speed rating, is a great shooter from medium and 3 point range, and has solid stamina.

Is this issue going to be addressed, or am I going to be forced to delete the character and effectively flush $10 down the toilet?

December 16th, 7:14 pm

This game is off the hook, I’m stuck in my career, but have a few questions…..First I’m having major trouble trying to steal the ball without getting fouled, how do u steal? And second, i had lebron james bonus pack on ps3, but im using same psn account, so can i transfer all my dlc somehow??Thank You

x-IKingSniper-x said:

December 16th, 8:12 pm

Accessories wont show in the shop anymore

x-IKingSniper-x said:

December 16th, 8:16 pm

For the people having problems with seperate vc from menu and career its because 2k messed up by letting us play while the game is installing (next gen consoles) i had this problem only fix is to delete your my career and start new one

hulyo0908 said:

December 18th, 12:22 am

so I just spent $80 on the vc points for my come I only have 1100 balance on my “my career” and all the vc points that I bought it only shows in the features? is there a possible way I can transfer those vc points in “my career” or atleast get a refund -.-

ThatBOYhighsmith said:

December 18th, 9:24 am

I don’t know how to download the update fix. I bought 35,000 vc points in mycareer but they didn’t show up. it only shows up out of the game mode. also there’s no game day accessories in the myplayer store. please help.

PicksUp_4Life said:

December 18th, 4:06 pm

why cant I buy accessories (like arm sleeves, knee sleeves, headbands) for my myplayer?

LCA_23 said:

December 18th, 8:00 pm

I too bought 35,000 vc and it doesn’t show up in my career … This a major flaw in an otherwise great game.

therenbackagain said:

December 18th, 8:07 pm

I spent $20 on VC, and I spent a good portion of that VC on dunks. My guy is a 3 pt specialist so he only goes for layups even though my ratings in dunk and vert are maxed out. Where can I go change his tendencies like you could do in previous 2k games?

GwapBoy409 said:

December 18th, 8:59 pm

Myplayer’s weight from 145 to 300 pounds have NO DIFFERENCE. In currrent gen when first creating a player you could see the weight being put on/taken off when adjusting the weight. I just want myplayer to match the size of the other point guards in the league. Can you guys PLEASE PLEASE address THIS Ronnie?? <———-

KinGPhilliP said:

December 19th, 5:05 am

Hey what’s up , so far I love this game and I think you guys did a great job with it , love the direction….but I do think it’s dumb that you can’t edit your players face in mycareer and also you can’t even buy in game gear, you guys should fix those things …It would make the game a lot better

tigasoliveira123 said:

December 19th, 5:53 am

Hey can anyone tell me if nba2k14 for ps3 (myplayer mode) is the same as for the ps4?

December 19th, 9:43 am

I was playing NBA 2k14 and I not able to get an accessories for my player in my career mode , a lot of problems with it . I think you guys should make a patch to fix it

kuhatz said:

December 19th, 11:59 am

I lost my overall rating of 92 in My Career Mode and now it’s at 25. Anyone know how to fix this?

ScytheNDice said:

December 19th, 5:37 pm

So, I purchased $20.00 of VC and the transaction went through according to the PSN. However, when I took myself back to the application it [NBA2k14 game] said, “The Transaction Failed: this content is not downloadable at this time”. Yet, I can see in my transactions that I was charged for the coins. Is there any chance I can get those coins or a refund please?

Strategee16 said:

December 19th, 6:06 pm

ive just purchased 160 000 worth of vc for my career and it is not showing in my career only on my main screen features etc..what is the problem here im getting mad i want to upgrade myplayer but cannot after i just spent 40$

pobopy12 said:

December 19th, 8:07 pm

I changed my MyCareer difficulty to All-Star from Pro nut now it wont let me change it back down, it only lets me choose from All-Star, Superstar, and Hall of Fame.

X_x_Yung_x_X said:

December 20th, 12:07 pm

Hey why is the accessories gear in the Champs store are gone are y’all updating it or something cus its really a big problem for me.

crookedminds said:

December 20th, 1:43 pm


Let me start out by saying the game is amazing. Graphics, gameplay, and the realization of the players is great, but it’s missing one thing. Why can’t we fully customize our myplayer. This was the best part of the previous versions. I want a player that looks exactly like me out there dunking the ball from the free throw line.

I’m sure many other fans want this as well. Please push for this in the next patch release.
