Just make a new topic, I marked mine as solved.

Gamer's Unlocked Best Buy Forum


Do I just choose 'New Message'? And what details should I include so that they don't end up asking me for more things like my customer service pin number or something?

Just noticed on my tracking info for NBA 2k13 that it's been transferred from UPS to USPS. Which means there is zero chance it shows up for it's expected delivery date, which is Monday.

ups mail innovations works that way. As soon as they hand it to the USPS, it usually means its a day from delivery.

Monday is a holiday too so I'm not expecting my Anthology edition till Tuesday. Tracking says it is in NJ while I'm in Philly so I think Saturday is a good day to get it at as my Netflix movies take only 1 day, but who knows.

Best Buy expedited shipping for Silver members is really fast. I preordered NBA 2K13 Monday night and I received it on Wednesday (1 day after release).

It's possible there's an embargo on reviews that won't be lifted until the release date or the day before (just a guess).

Probably Sunday or Monday. If you haven't pre ordered you could always just do the 5 down in store in case it does turn out well.

Yep, review embargo is set until Monday, probably noon. I'm holding off on Dishonored as I'm getting a Bioshock buzz from it, which I thought was meh. Getting XCOM for sure though.

That's what it says in the fine print must be picked up within 7 days maybe you could get the manager to override and give you $20 back but that would be ymmv if they read the fine print in the promo


If I try for the $20 certificates do I go to the store or call best buy?

I'm honestly surprised to see on this thread so many people picking up NBA2k13. I was under the impression that most serious gamers didn't go for the whole sports game thing because it was a year by year cash cow that rarely got an update from the previous year's title (besides rosters). Hell, I was the only guy at my store Tuesday picking up RE6...like 8 other guys all picking up NBA. I was thinking "damn....". Nothing wrong with that of course, just an observation.

It might just be me though, as I could care less for most sports besides baseball and the occasional festive soccer match, and even then...i love my old Triple Play '98 and Ken Griffey's Slugfest.

Must just be a lot of basketball fans on here. Although while at BBY yesterday, i did glance at the box and saw it was produced by Jay-Z this time. That might make for new and improved gameplay and features, which if the case, I could see the bigger draw.

Jay-Z is my favorite player. He's also my favorite video game designer.

Three reasons.

1. The NBA2K series always brings quality so more people are likely to support a series that constantly produces good games.

2. The people who complain about yearly sport titles are the minorty.

3. $20 GC knocks it down to $40 if you want to look at it that way. Plus, if you decide you don't like it, you can turn around and trade it in for $42 So if you don't like it, you're not losing anything. If you like it, you essentially got it for $40.

Hell if anything, I was hesitant on buying it because I didn't want to support a hack like Jay Z.

Every year since 2010, 2K has been vastly improving the game over each year. While Jordan, and then his buddies, and now the Dream Team, are the buzz features, the base gameplay is hugely superior over the previous year before it. 2K kind of has to do this if it wants to keep making basketball games, seeing as how the board of directors doesn't want any more licensed games that lose money/critical appeal.

This year's game is far better than 2K12. Well worth my $54 (- $20 in RZ certs). Well worth it.

And most importantly, a lot of people like basketball and video games and this is the only basketball video game.

Oh okay...well I'm glad to see some intellectual comments backing it up.

I may have to check out some of the 2k baseball games. "I" was always under the impression though that 2k games were a lot more technical in gameplay, and for baseball, I'd have better luck/more fun with a game like MLB The Show.

But yea, I think a lot of it is my general dislike of basketball in general. Played it at a younger age, was pretty pathetic, and have had a dislike since then haha. Always stuck with baseball.

Eh I'd stay away from the 2k baseball games. They're a mixed bag.

The Show is best baseball game and my sports GOY.

I buy Show and Madden every year eventhough its basically the same. You can't really change a sport so I don't know what people expect to be different.

If you thought the first Bioshock was meh, you should stick with flash games and angry birds.

bioshock is meh. it was amazing when i first played it, but its one of those games where once you try to play it again, you realize just how mediocre it actually is. it nails atmosphere, sure, but gameplay feels totally off. Clunky, almost, and certainly not fun on its own. i have high expectations for Infinite though.
