I mean it has been 3 long years since they had Kobe on the cover to milk sales.

This time they're milking the date. Just like Nike who is re-releasing the Kobe line this August.

I mean technically they turned off all the online servers for 2k21 anyway so every three years might be intentional.

Sorry I'm just so jaded about what this game has become.

I'm jaded about what all sports games have become, TBH.

Hopefully the Black Mamba edition has the free year of NBA League Pass like last season.

Now that I have much more storage on my PS5 after getting the 2TB SSD, I might get the digital edition if it has access to a free league pass subscription.

I mean the digital edition takes up just as much space on your HDD as the physical edition...

Plus buying digital sports games is pointless. At least right at the beginning. Buying it a year or two later when it’s $10-$15 isn’t bad.

I wouldn't say it's pointless. Sports games are always seasonal based with new rosters every year. It just depends on how interested you are in playing the new season of the game with say Wemby on the Spurs.

I play 2K exclusively for the real rosters and NBA schedule. I know for the others it's for the My career and DLC stuff. And I know that aspect can get tedious.

Re: NBA 2K24 — Kobe Bryant/Black Mamba Edition

Yeah the draw is getting to play with the current rosters, however now I always wait until the first major discount, which is usually around the all-star break. They absolutely know what they're doing in turning off the servers 2 years later, if you get it a year late you can only really play it for a year.

I know the feeling. I used to edit the old Madden rosters back in the early 90’s when I was in junior high. Later in life I bought one of the MLB the Show games digitally and it mocks me every time I see it.

Based on their site, the Black Mamba edition doesn't have league pass. Only the Anniversary edition for $150 includes the year of LP

Oh okay. Thanks for the clarification. I didn't know if the Black Mamba edition was the premium version or not like 2K23 championship edition that had League pass.

Probably not going to spend that much again this season. Aside from League Pass, the championship edition is mostly filled with a bunch of My Career perks that I don't really use.


BTW, Sabrina Ionescu is on the WNBA cover for the game.

I've never seen the WNBA edition covers, are they an exclusive or something?

They started offering a WNBA cover with 2K22.

I know they started offering them, I've just never seen them displayed in a store.

2K24 will have season passes. These games will nickel and dime you to death.

Reminder for anyone who wanted the deal. The ability to get league pass with the game for $150 ends after the 10th.

Re: NBA 2K24 — Kobe Bryant/Black Mamba Edition

I bought the Black Mamba edition, and it came with a 95 OVR Kobe Bryant card. Now, it's gone, nowhere to be found. If I knew it was just going to be a card you could only use for a few days, I would have bought the regular edition.

Re: NBA 2K24 — Kobe Bryant/Black Mamba Edition

So I had enough points on my Sony Visa card that I was able to get this off the Sony rewards site for free. I decided to get the Black Mamba edition. It should arrive in the next week or so.

I want to be able to play as the new look Lakers and see how Wemby is in the game.

Re: NBA 2K24 — Kobe Bryant/Black Mamba Edition

Any tips on actually scoring in this game? I can't hit the ocean with the ball if I was standing on the beach. Same thing with rebounding. The ball doesn't have a bounce when it hits the rim, it just falls on the side. I wish 2K would quit messing with shooting meter every year. Shooting is as bad as 22 was, if not worse. Last year's meter was perfect. I might as well have thrown 100 bucks out of the car window as to buy this year's game.
