So when NBA 2K13 dropped we found out it would bring with it a bevy of new features, but one of the more interesting things it was to bring with it were to be the companion apps. 2K Sports revealed that there would be companion apps for mobile devices as well as a Facebook app. Well we are still waiting on the Facebook and Android app, but iOS fans can download the MyNBA2K app from iTunes right now.
After you download the app, simply log into it with the nba2k.com credentials and it will link the app to your in-game account. From there virtual currency (VC) can be earned through different mini-games that correlate to either the MyCareer or MyTeam modes.
Personally, I think this is great as VC is very tedious to accumulate, using the app you can work on building it up even when you can’t be in front of your console. I actually think that 2K Sports needs to tweak how much VC you earn for things, right now you just don’t get enough of it considering all the things that you have to use it to purchase. Until they do that though, this is your best bet.
So what are you waiting for, go download MyNBA2K from iTunes ASAP. The app is supposed to be coming to Android as well but as of the writing of this post it has yet to appear on Google Play.
Update: The Facebook app is live, you can find it here.
