Remember the unbelievable sale last week to NBA 2K19 in the North American eShop and in several other digital platforms? The game received a 95% discount for a limited time, taking it from the normal price of $ 59.99 to just $ 2.99. Even people who do not play regularly in sports games find it difficult to deny this agreement.
Unfortunately, however, some of these new players were very shocked when they were apparently forced to watch "inseparable ads" on their sites. paid out game before each session. It certainly led to immediate outrage and much confusion online. Although these 2K TV ads are being reported elsewhere as a new addition to the game, this is apparently not the case.
According to veteran ballers, these in-game video ads are nothing new and can be turned off in the game settings menu. Reddit Totalnoob18 User has clarified things on the Xbox One sudoddit:
"You can turn off 2k tv on the stage. You will not get the ads, nor will this [removed] tv before the games ".
A Reddit user on the PC Gaming subredit, known as iHicham, added:
"Yes, these ads are not new"
Eventually, this information spread to several subnetworks – including the Nintendo Switch. While it is still a questionable practice for developers and publishers to enter video ads into paid games, it is now clear that new players can disable TV 2K in the settings menu.
