If you're looking for a taste of something different, something a little more old-school, Knack is the perfect PS4 game for you. With Knack, not only are we taking gamers back to the days of classic games like Crash Bandicoot, we're also introducing some new and unique ways to experience the game.
We have a unique two-player coop mode that puts a fun twist on traditional co-op games and is a great reason to pick up an extra DualShock 4 controller. If you own a PS Vita, there's of course Remote Play, which can even work in conjunction with our two-player co-op.

To quote: What an exciting year for everyone in the video game industry. The team here at 2K has seen a lot over the years, and experienced countless new system launches.

With that said, 2K is excited to unveil the all-new Eco-Motion Engine for NBA 2K14 on PS4.

Player animations are dynamic, and evolve on the fly as you play. Player personalities...
