One thing that hadn't occurred to me until hearing the crew talk about that basketball game on the PS4 launch video was the fact that even if a next gen version is coming out, the PC version could be a port of the current/previous gen game. In other words, the PC version of NBA 2K14 is apparently a port of the PS3/360 version, which has some different features from the PS4/Xbox One version.
So I guess what I'm wondering is what the case is with AC4.
Not the case.
You brought up the one game where this is the case, basically (NBA 2K). You're getting a better version of every game otherwise with ports to PC.
2K does a crap job with NBA and acknowledges it by making it $30 at release on PC. The game doesn't even have online on PC. They didn't bother to port the advanced next gen version for the same reason.
I guess the fact that NBA 2K14 is such an anomaly explains why the idea that it even COULD happen like that hadn't crossed my mind. But that is good to hear.
