Seems wrong to take advantage of a "price glitch". But what do I know? Millennials and zoomers don't care about morals or ethics, just coming out ahead at everyone else's expense. 

 

Just to be sure this is indeed the real price, I e-mailed Microsoft to ask.

 

Not sure why you're emailing like a Millennial would. You should be calling or faxing to ask.

Judging from his attitude, maybe he should contact them via the Pony Express.

Microsoft has the power to issue refunds should the price be incorrect.

Those little shits probably don't know how to even use e-mails, for all I know they can only text emojis to each other. I've been using e-mail since the early 90's, before the majority of you were even born.

And that matters why? Good for you for knowing how to use email, I guess.

Not sure if serious or if this post is performance art. Yes, let's all feel sorry for 2K, which uses easily one of the scummiest MT systems in all of videogames in this very game.

No. The 'play now'id because of a free trial weekend. If you want to keep it it's $2.99.

it's presented as a F2P / P2W game anyway. This should've been its launch price lmao.

Not literally pointless. If you let XBL lapse for a single day, youll lose access to it. $3 means keep forever

This is simply not true. The only modes where that comes into play are MyTeam and MyPlayer. Any traditional mode like season, playoffs, franchise, etc. have none of that. The inclusion of classic and all-time teams that you can swap in at the start of a season make this game worth it alone. Such a blast to run a whole season with most of the all-time greats.

I can't play games like this because of my self esteem. Damn tank gut. Seeing physically fit athletes run and jump makes me order Burger King on Uber eat and drown my misery in trans fats.

Are there discounts tomorrow for all 2K games or is the big reduction just for NBA?

People really will buy anything if they think they're getting a deal lol. The NBA 2K games are worthless if you don't spend real money on VC.

Because they expect people cough up cash for their crappy in game loot boxes(called card packs in this game) to make up for the discount..  Plus in another 3 months,it'll be pointless to own this game when the new one comes out.

Those modes are trash though. Not sure why people take the bait. Just play friends online or start a season/franchise. There really are a lot of modes that aren't tainted by that garbage.

yeah if you want to play the MyPlayer mode or the fantasy card game (whatever you cal it) you either have to grind for hundreds of hours or pay to have a decent player or team. You can however play with NBA teams online, offline vs or coop, season and franchise modes without the VC pay to win stuff. Just know what your getting and you won’t be disgusted.

Exactly. I never touch that crap. My buddy and I play a fantasy draft league with all the players from the classic teams and it's a blast.

NBA 2k20 would make this obsolete, but that is the case with any sports game. That next year edition always essentially shuts it down. I'm interested in essentially having an updated NBA video game experience. 

 

Question is....if you never play it....what's the point of buying it!

Signs point to no as the ad I saw on Facebook specifically said PS4/XB1 only.

This is such a good deal if you like basketball. For the price of a redbox rental, you get to own it. I have only played one game so far and it's already worth it. There is plenty to do in this game and no, next years version that will retail for $59.99 does not make this version obsolete. I am still playing MLB The Show 17 because of all the content in it.
