NBA 2K24: A Comprehensive Guide to Pre-Ordering for Best Value

The gaming world is abuzz with the upcoming release of NBA 2K24. With pre-orders now available, gamers are eager to dissect the different packages to determine the best value for their money. This article will guide you through the various pre-order options for NBA 2K24 based on a detailed video analysis by BrutalSim, a well-known figure in the 2K community.

Understanding the Pre-Order Options
NBA 2K24 offers three pre-order options: the Basic Edition, the Black Mamba Edition, and the 25th Anniversary Edition. The Basic Edition, also known as the Kobe Bryant Edition, is priced at $59.99. The Black Mamba Edition costs $99.99, and the price for the 25th Anniversary Edition is yet to be announced, but it’s expected to be around $150.

The Basic Edition comes with 5K VC (Virtual Currency), 5K NBA 2K
points, 10 promo packs (delivered one per week), a 95-rated Kobe Bryant free agent card, five MyCareer skill boosts, and three Gatorade boosts.

The Black Mamba Edition includes everything in the Basic Edition, plus an additional 100K VC, 15K MyTeam points, 10 MyTeam promo packs, a diamond shoe, a ruby coach, two-hour double XP coin, ten MyCareer skill boosts, ten Gatorade boosts, a backpack, an electric skateboard, and an arm sleeve.

The 25th Anniversary Edition offers the same benefits as the Black Mamba Edition, with the addition of a League Pass subscription and five additional MyCareer boosts.

Making the Right Choice
BrutalSim suggests that the best value for your money depends on your interest in the NBA. If you’re not particularly interested in the NBA, he recommends going for the Basic Edition and buying VC for your player separately. This is because to get to an 85 rating, you’ll need close to 200K VC, which isn’t included in any of the pre-order packages.

However, if you’re a basketball enthusiast, the 25th Anniversary Edition might be the best option for you, especially if you value the NBA League Pass subscription and the additional boosts.

Release Date and Crossplay
NBA 2K24 is set to launch on September 8th. It’s important to note that crossplay will only be available on next-gen consoles, specifically between the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
