Nice for the Die Hard NBA Fans.

Probably not a purchase "regular" gamers will make.

Damn, $100 for this? I'll pass.

And what are you guys going to do with the money? Give us crew and finally fix the servers?

This should be free to compensate the customers for the 2k12 disappointment

Way too steep for what they're giving you.

You can get the ASW w/ an Amazon pre-order.
Who uses controller skins?
You're basically paying for a full size basketball and the game.
 
I hope a lot of you don't complain about this because keep in mind: you don't have to get this; you could just get the regular edition.

Most will still complain -- and they'll try to throw in their wishlist inside of the complaint as well.

It is what it is like I said im not hatin at all.. After this announcement i want to hear about Gameplay and Online thats it.. If their supposed big announcement next week is the dream team or olympics then i will be dissapppointed..
 
# 11 poloelite @ 06/28/12 09:23 AM
Not bad comparing it to other collector editions. For $40 you get a ball to display and some earbuds. I'm sure if you buy two some idiot will pay you $200 for it on EBay, making yours free.

Like a broken record....you seriously think that there will be gameplay announcements this early? It's only June ffs....you guys always fall for that hype from Ronnie about "big" announcements and you end up coming in here complaining that its not gameplay...

All the meaty stuff usually don't get announced till around September I believe...for the next couple of months it will be mostly fluff like this...

A set of basketball cards instead of the ball would have been really awesome. Anyway, I'm just sticking with the regular edition.
 
# 14 adub88 @ 06/28/12 09:59 AM
Please tell me this isn't the big announcement they were talking about. If that's the case we need to start defining big announcements then.
 
# 15 chi_hawks @ 06/28/12 10:05 AM
would be worth an extra 10 bucks. not 40.

If you don't think it's a good deal, don't buy it.

They aren't forcing it on anyone, it's just a special package for people who are interested. There's no need to sit here and pretend like them selling a special edition with some extra items is going to effect the amount of time they spend working on the game or the online servers.
 
# 17 AirJordanFan93 @ 06/28/12 10:15 AM
Nice little set. That Basketball looks pretty cool to be honest. But ill pass on this 100 bucks from the Game and a Ball just is not worth it especially if I already have a ball
 
# 18 fsufan4423 @ 06/28/12 10:50 AM
Throw in some NBA socks and a iPod to go with those buds and I'm on it.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Even as a hardcore NBA 2K fan (and someone who plays real life basketball like it's going out of style), I find none of these extras to be appealing.

And bless 2K and their marketing staff doing and saying exactly what they're supposed to say but man, Argent's line, “This is an awesome deal that is sure to please fans, and will become a must-have item while supplies last” wasn't exactly a exercise in subtly now was it. Of course, I say that light-heartedly as I know that's what he's supposed to say.
