The NBA might use crowd noise from NBA 2K when the league starts back up
No audience, no problem.
COVID-19 has all but shut down all major events so far in 2020, but as the country looks to reopen, some organizations are looking at how they will adapt to changes that will echo for months (and maybe years) to come.
Take, for example, the NBA. As the league looks to open back up in limited capacity (sans audience), one thing that keeps coming up is how televised games will feel without an audience roaring in the background. Well, for the 22 teams that may play games at Disney World in Orlando, the sounds of the audience may come from a familiar source – NBA 2K.
The NBA 2K series is known for its dynamic audience sound effects, and if a report from The Athletic proves true, then Camp NBA in Orlando may soon be filled with the sound of a digital audience during the games.
This isn’t the only case of organizations using sound effects from other sources, including some soccer broadcasts and there’s even reports that Sky Sports will use FIFA 20 sound effects during their broadcasted matches.
While this may be odd, at least it doesn’t involve putting sex dolls in the stands.
- Amazon’s first AAA video game, Crucible, is actually a blast to play
- Jack says Twitter employees can work remotely forever so maybe you can too
- A new report suggests that almost half of the tweets regarding the coronavirus are probably from bots
- NBA launches a new $7/month streaming service and it’s actually pretty good
