As far as Special Editions go, 2K Sports is pulling no punches with NBA 2K13 and is bringing the game to your hands in a more physical way than ever before. The ‘NBA 2K13 Dynasty Edition‘, releasing Oct. 2 for $99.99, will feature a copy of the game and some awesome basketball related goodies and, wait for it, a full-sized Spalding basketball, time to get your LeBron James on people!
The Spalding basketball included isn’t you regular traditional orange orb of greatness, instead it has a more artful approach, with limbs covering most of the ball and the game title plastered on the front, so you will stand out among your basketball buddies. To go along with the basketball, the Dynasty edition also promises DLC in the form of “All-Star add-on content presented by Sprite,” 2K Sports Skullcandy earbuds , and an “NBA 2K13” skin to cover your PS3 or Xbox controller with.
Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports talked about giving something meaningful to the fans that they can really enjoy, he said, “With this special edition package, we want to give something meaningful to our great fans. This is an awesome deal that is sure to please fans, and will become a must-have item while supplies last.” Previous installment NBA 2K12, sold-in over 5 million units worldwide and won more than 25 Sports Game of the Year awards, so we can expect NBA 2K13 to be an all rounded experience(no pun intended).
The “NBA 2K13 Dynasty Edition” will be exclusive to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and can be pre-ordered on the NBA 2K13 Facebook Page. NBA 2K13 is available in North America on October 2 and October 5 internationally. Let us know in the comments if you’re picking this bad boy up.
