Though the simulation was by no means weak on the PS4 from Weismart's blog

Sports games go hand-in-hand with NBA 2K21 MT console launches like LeBron James and retweets. Except this hasn't been an ordinary season at allthe basketball season just just concluded after being played in an empty gym in front of virtual crowds and NBA 2K21 is the only sports simulation available on the PlayStation 5 for now. This will change come 4th December, when FIFA 21 and Madden NFL 21 are slated to release, but credit to 2K Sports for getting ready in time. The next-gen version of Visual Concepts' uber-popular b-ball brand shares some similarities with its current-gen counterpart, but it's by and large an all-new match. Considering how solid the PlayStation 4 variant was when it was released earlier in the year, that's an impressive achievement.

So, what's different? Movement mechanics have been fully re-written, meaning gamers will now plant their feet exactly as you expect them there's no slipping into position and awkward snapping into animations, as everyone on the court will require the requisite actions to get them wherever they have to be. 

It could sound like a minor matter, but it provides you with a larger link between the DualSense and the star you're controlling. The game also feels more physical. Trying to package your way into the paint when you're being boxed out with a 7'0" beast-like Nikola Jokic is similar to attempting to run through a brick wall, while at this point you get much more realistic contact through dunk and layup chances when you're at the rim. 

Though the simulation was by no means weak on the PS4, it seems that little bit more polished on the PS5; the consequence of a seemingly limitless collection of under-the-hood alterations and Cheap MT 2K21 improvements.
