# 2 Clappington @ 06/24/15 08:45 AM
This is actually pretty cool 20+ more bucks though so idk if its truly worth it.

Edit: Didn't read all the details lol but tbh I been wanting a Jordan Fathead for some time now so I definitely will be getting this, and the cover is super sweet.

Hopefully this means that Jordan's cyber face and body will be updated correctly.

Lol so many haters, the Jordan moments sound awesome. The stuff included here sounds way better than what a lot of other companies offer for their special editions.

I have a real problem with this stuff and, honestly, can't fathom why people pay for to wear a pair of sneakers in a VIDEO game...it is a freaking game. Go buy some real shoes.

Same with all these 'virtual accessories'. The millioanire execs must be laughing hysterically...people paying real money for things that do not even exist or need to be made / produced.

Well I'm glad you see it as it is lol

Just never understood why ppl care about who is in the "cover" if a video game.

Is this a game mode, or are they saying this because Jordan is available to play with in the game.

Will it also include the other 3 covers?
 
# 17 KingTocco @ 06/24/15 10:23 AM

Hell yeah 2K! The GOAT! I'd pay an additional $20 for the cover alone lol. This is awesome! Love MJ!

I wish 2K would add the Jordan challenges back like in 2K11 with the historic presentation. That was dope!
 
# 19 MoneyOvaHuds @ 06/24/15 10:30 AM
That's a steal if you ask me , go count all that extra stuff by itself . Fathead wall clings go from 40 to 100 bucks
 
# 20 Vic Viper @ 06/24/15 10:49 AM
I will pass on this offer. I already have MJ on my NBA 2K11 cover and living in Chicago, I already have an autographed in-game photo and autographed basketball. Fix that game of yours 2K and I will be a happy man.
