It turns out that 2K Sports' next instalment in their basketball simulation franchise, NBA 2K21, will have more audio tracks on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X than elsewhere.

NBA 2K21 was already confirmed for the cross-upgrade program if you get the $100 Mamba Forever edition. This means that players can upgrade to PS5 and XSX editions of 2K21 whenever the console launches. 

Fans of NBA 2K music compilations, however, have even more reason to be excited, as they'll be getting a huge music upgrade over the current gent. And you'd be surprised how big deal music is in basketball sims.  

As caught by Gamespot, the NBA 2K21 playlist is already up on Spotify with about 50 tracks in there, including names like Stormzy, The Strokes and more. Getting the PS5/XSX version, on the other hand, will come with a music update, which will boost this number to more than 200 tracks. 

Ironically, 2K 21's cover star for the standard edition, Damian Lillard, will be performing as Dame D.O.L.L.A. and contributing two tracks for the next-gen systems. We're saying ironically because you don't want to get his edition if you're planning to buy next-gen devices - you'll end up having to buy it again for PS5/XSX.

"To be on the cover alone is a big deal to me, but to be on the cover and also have my music be a part of the game is a huge accomplishment as well", he said.

Well, it certainly is a double whammy being on the cover of NBA 2K21 and on its soundtrack, and if you consider yourself a music connoisseur - you may want to watch out for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X editions.

You can find the Spotify playlist here . Thanks, Gamespot .
