NBA 2K21 – Next gen Price Increase Confirmed. 59.99 for Xbox One, 69.99 for Series X : xboxone
From the press release today:
“…NBA 2K21 is a monumental leap forward for the franchise,” stated Greg Thomas, president of Visual Concepts. “We’re combining all of our experience and development expertise to craft the best game possible and for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, we are building the game from the ground up to take full advantage of next-gen power and technology.”
This year, NBA 2K21 will offer two editions of the game on digital and physical formats – standard and a special Mamba Forever Edition. NBA 2K21 will be available for $59.99** on current-generation platforms; the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X version of NBA 2K21 will be available for $69.99.** NBA 2K21 Mamba Forever Edition will be available for $99.99 for both current and next-generation platforms.** It includes dual-access where purchasing Mamba Forever Edition on either current or next-generation platforms provides a copy of the standard edition game on the other generation at no additional cost, within the same console family. A full breakdown of pre-order details is available at https://nba.2k.com/buy/standard-next-gen/
So this shows a couple things: Not All publishers are doing Smart Delivery and some will be selling you their highest version for both copies of the game like here.
Honestly I am good with paying 69.99 for next gen games, as I feel we are due another price increase since that last one was back when 360 launched in 2005. Especially with the higher costs for game development these days i can understand it.
What’s everyone’s thoughts?
