You want to experience the game at cheaper price, then get the standard edition by Paul George.
This will only costs you $59.99 and you will save $20 for your future upgrades like buying Virtual Currencies, Dunk packages or even Diamond Player Card Packs.


If you have money and looking for other than digital bonuses, you should buy the Legend Gold Edition. The reason behind is, you will get a Limited time – poster of Kobe bryant. You can display it on your home. You can use it to design your room. It’s good to see a poster, I mean a representation of the game in your room.

NBA 2K17 Trailer Released: Stunning Graphics to look for

NBA 2K17 Trailer entitled #FRICTION was released last August 22, 2016.
The video trailer comes out with Imagine Dragons song Entitled “FRICTION”.

As you have seen in the video, Interactions are made better. I can see that the emotions of players are real.

On the other hand,
Derrick Rose appeared at the very beginning of the video with his new team New York Knicks.

There is also a sighting of Kobe Bryant at #8 Jersey.

Another thing we can see in the trailer is that, players have more detailed tattoos.
NBA 2K made a good point on showing some of the best players in the NBA.
Lebron James, Chris Paul, Paul George and even Blake Griffin.
There is also a sighting of sophomore players like Karl Anthony Towns and D’ Angelo Rusell.
The game is more exciting than it used to be. I will now tell my observations below.

From my main observation,

The graphics of NBA 2K17 just got a lot of improvement, the arenas are well lit. Furthermore, 2k also developed lots of improvement on its gameplay. I think that there will be more of  this for the entire month of August.
As the game release is coming, I think it’s best that I will pre-order the game for now.
I want to post my review on my blog sooner.

Will you get NBA 2K17?

Are you excited about the NBA 2K17 release? If you were to asked me I am.
In just a month, you can now witness the best basketball franchise called NBA 2K17. It is followed by millions of gamers worldwide. I also considered myself as a follower of the game because I purchase every NBA 2K edition every year. NBA 2K17 will be released on September 26, 2016 but, you can get it earlier if you pre-order. You can choose to order the regular edition  – Paul George being the cover or the Legend edition(Kobe Bryant). Some of the pre-order bonus includes 30,000 VC, Kobe 11 shoes and exclusive Kobe Bryant Jersey.

First Official Video Trailer

NBA 2K17 1st video trailer has just been released few days ago. In the video, you can see the 2016 USA Men’s Olympic Basketball team and the 1992 USA Men’s Olympic Dream team. The background song of the video is the USA national anthem.

First Official Screenshot
Aside from the video above,  you can see a screenshot of the previous NBA 2K edition and the upcoming NBA 2K17. Based from my opinion, Paul George seems to be darker with regards to skin tone. NBA 2K also focused on the texture of the skin and tattoos. Paul George seemed to have bigger body in NBA 2K17.

According to IGN, a new system of gameplay will be implemented. In myCareer mode, Kobe Bryant will be the one to mentor you in your high school days up to your Professional Basketball Career(NBA).

My Verdict
If you want to play the game sooner and build up your myCareer strong, I recommend you to pre-order it.
There is a saying that early bird catches the worm early.
