UPDATED - PS5 players experience more bugs after patch

As we ramp through the first Season of NBA 2K22 we've received multiple patches to help the flow of the game. However, the most recent patch brought a strange bug to the PS5.

The bug was inside of MyTEAM and would prevent any card artwork from showing. On top of that, you couldn't join Domination games, but it would count against your contracts.

The gameplay feels much better than NBA 2K21, perhaps somewhat down to the Next Gen version.

The controls tutorials seem to be the only thing letting the game down at the moment, with certain sections not responding as intended or not properly explaining certain actions.
