On the series s, I get messages to return to the main menu for game updates pretty frequently. Are those different than patches? How do I know if I have the latest patch?

Yep, those in-game updates are separate from the patches that come via the dashboard. They're generally roster updates, MyTEAM content, and sometimes gameplay tweaks/tuning that doesn't require a full patch to implement. The patches that come through via the dashboard are the major technical fixes and likeness updates, as they're replacing files.

The updates will come through automatically, but you can check your update settings via this method: https://support.xbox.com/en-AU/help/har ... e-overview

You also won't be able to connect to the 2K servers in-game if there's a new patch and it isn't installed, so you'll see a "Connect" option at the main menu and you won't be able to fire up MyTEAM or MyCAREER. You can also cross-check with the patch notes. For example, in Patch 1.02, you can look for the updated New York Liberty logo or the option to change Shot Meter colour. Their presence will indicate that you have the latest patch; if they were absent, your game hasn't been updated/

Unless you've changed your update settings or don't have your console online for whatever reason, you'll generally always have the latest patch.

A lot of these updates didn't actually work. For instance, the Knicks uniform is still not up.

Feels underwhelming to have one gameplay change after a month (almost two, but hey, christmas etc cut into it) after last patch.
Wondering if that means they're focusing on 2K22 already, perhaps making it run on PC too?

They've been pushing through some hotfixes (part of the "Updated Required" updates), but yeah, not a lot of gameplay changes. I'm guessing what we see is what we've got until NBA 2K22.
