Also, the #NBA2K16 Early Tip-Off Weekend pre-order is NOT retailer specific. Anywhere you can pre-order (including digitally) you get it.

And more clarification in the comments section.

Quote:
Not only a week early release date up in to September, but pre-ordering ensures you're playing it FOUR days early, unlimited access.

Also, two things to clarify:
  • Yes, this is a pre-order applies BOTH digitally and physically. More details are being worked out on exact timing (time zones etc)
  • This release date will be the same in ALL regions internationally - September 29... but only some regions will have the pre-order, 4-day early - UK, AUS have it for example). More details will be coming on those questions later.

Does this mean the day one patch is coming on the 25th or the 29th?

it will be interesting to see if any brick and mortar stores get in on the pre-order action. lets says BB does - what's to stop me from walking in on Friday and *ahem* "pre-ordering" and walking out with the game

Too bad we dont get mom and pops in Maryland.
 
# 12 Yeah...THAT Guy @ 05/26/15 10:15 AM
This is an interesting pre-order. I might just bite the bullet because they could basically roll out the same game again and I still probably wouldn't be able to resist getting a new 2K game lol.

Of course they're "getting in on the action." It says in the OP North American RETAIL and online vendors.

Virtual Currency is back, huh? I wonder what they learned in 2K14?
 
# 15 Hustle Westbrook @ 05/26/15 11:21 AM
Lol come on you guys. Do you know how much money VC and MyTeam makes 2K? It's not going away any time soon.

I remember when I preordered 2k15 and took the day off work to play at launch... I spent the whole day mucking around with a broken face scan system and having mycareer restart itself. Good times.

They could give me infinite free VC and it still won't persuade me to get another 2k basketball game at launch.
 
# 18 Peter_OS @ 05/26/15 12:28 PM
please change the menus and how we navigate in the game. they were awful last year imo.
 
# 19 tsbmolina @ 05/26/15 12:34 PM
Sept. 25th sounds perfect, count me in!
 
# 20 jayman504 @ 05/26/15 12:36 PM
IF you think about it...its pretty cool to be getting the game early. Mostly all the sports titles will be out in a short period of time. Madden, NHL, and now 2K16 I'm please with this decision.

Should hopefully mean info starts flowing hopefully a lil sooner too?
