  1. I never comment on anything... ever. But this article made me need to say something. Side by side comparison of 2k21 on ps4 and then ps5. The ps5 image is an actual picture of lebron. Like from real life. Its from Los Angeles Times... Then on top of it, it took them forever just to tell us, "Yeah they added all 12 wnba teams to 2k21 and it has better graphics."
