PREORDERS are up in the Philippines’ biggest video game retailer for NBA 2K21, the latest edition of the long-running basketball video game series.
You can preorder both the standard edition (Damian Lillard cover) for P500, or the Mamba Forever (Kobe cover) edition for P800 on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
DataBlitz estimates that the standard edition will be priced anywhere from P2,800 to P3,200. Prices for the Mamba Forever edition, on the other hand, will range from P4,900 to P5,300.
“Prices indicated are only estimates and can vary slightly upon release,” went DataBltz’s disclaimer.
DataBlitz has not yet announced any price for the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game. However, 2K Sports has said that in the US, the next-gen standard edition will be $69.99 (around P3,465), or a $10 increase from the usual video game sticker price.
The retailer has also not yet announced what preorder bonus fans can expect. It said that it will post an update once the preorder bonus has been finalized.
You can place preorders in shops. If you don't want to go out because of the pandemic dangers, you can also preorder via their ecommerce store here.
What’s the difference between the two editions?
The Damian Lillard cover gets you 5,000 Virtual Currency, 5,000 MyTEAM Points, 10 MyTEAM Promo packs (delivered one a week), 9 MyCAREER Skill Boosts, a 5 pair Shoe Collection, and the Damian Lillard Digital Collection.
The Mamba Forever edition will cost a bit more. According to 2K, buying this for the PS4 and Xbox One entitles you to a copy of the next-gen (PS5, Xbox Series X) version of the game.
