Love the Kobe stuff. I might get this after skipping last year.

Re: NBA 2K18 - Shaq Legend Edition.

So if you want the Lakers uni cover you need to pay up for the special edition?

They should make the last gen editions the Magic jersey cover.

The video also mentions at the end that the physical copy of the gold edition is an exclusive at Gamestop. So unfortunately, no GCU or Prime 20% discounts.

I forgot they're releasing this for the Switch as well. I'm hoping it's not just some kind of PS3 port...

Loved the Kobe part. Can't wait for the payback commercial. Hoping they have a magic edition, though. I know Shaq won a ring with Miami and proved he don't "need Kobe" but he did so much for Orlando that there needs to be one.

Re: NBA 2K18 - Shaq Legend Edition.

As a life long fan of the Purple and Gold, I would love to have the Lakers' cover but there's no way I would spend $150 dollars for a video game.

Yeah I'm not going with any crazy edition. Just the game itself. That being said, Shaq and Kobe are awesome.

Kyrie Irving is going to be on the cover of the standard edition. Here's a look at the pre-order details for the Standard Edition:

5,000 Virtual Currency;
10 Weekly MyTEAM Packs;
Kyrie Outfit Pack;

Re: NBA 2K18 - Shaq Legend Edition.

Skipped the last couple years, will probably buy this year hoping it'll look great on a One X.

This helps too.

Re: NBA 2K18 - Shaq Legend Edition.

There's an asterisk where it says the pre-order bonus is for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC only. But aren't those all of the platforms?

Are you referring to a specific site? I couldn't tell where you're seeing that asterisk.

EDIT: Oh, I assume you mean the main page? https://nba.2k.com/buy#nba-2k18/nba-...s/ps4/gamestop

Looks like it's on 360 and PS3 too.

Re: NBA 2K18 - Shaq Legend Edition.

I pre-ordered the regular XBox One edition at Gamestop. Love Shaq, but $150 for the special edition is way too expensive and the extra perks are all silly digital things I will never use.

I'm really looking forward to playing with the All-time team with the Lakers. That's a really cool feature.

Sill unfortunate that Charles Barkley won't permit use of his likeness and won't be on any all-time teams. He would be a great one on the Suns.

Yes, if you go to the third red bar down, they have you choose a platform and it's just those. The PS3 and 360 are not listed.

There are separate entries for PS4/PS4 Digital and XBO/XBO Digital, but I don't think they would exclude the digital bonus items from the digital versions, would they?

All-Time Rosters lists on the 2K Facebook page. There's quite a few.

No Chuck Barkley on the Suns or Sixers as expected and no Reggie Miller on the Pacers.

Re: NBA 2K18 - Shaq Legend Edition.

Think there'll be a running cover change for the Kyrie version? That'll motivate me to pick it up sooner rather than later, to not have a Celtic on the cover. Or maybe buy digitally.

I've skipped the last 2 years, will probably get this one since it's enhanced for the Xbox One X

What the fuck is with these 2 idiots no showing up in video games? Do they really think that their licensing value is bigger than MJ, Kobe or Shaq?

Yes, they are issuing the updated cover sometime after release.
