Glorified mobile game with all the freemium trappings...
All NBA 2K Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2020
Great game, bought it on the PS for 3.99 a couple of months back. Haven’t spent a penny of real money in game, it’s the same as FIFA in terms of ultimate team packs, they’re there if you want to buy them, if you don’t it’s not a big deal. They’re constantly giving cards away. The slot machines you see in the trailers are ironically what you see when they give away a free card and it chooses the card for you.
It makes me laugh that this is in PlayStation Plus’s 2 free games a month. (lol)
Isn’t this more like a gambling simulator, this will soon be an 18 luckily
Not even worth that price tbh Worst ever NBA game Please check the reviews for more info as to why it’s the worst NBA Game :(
Expect the age rating to go up now that loot boxes are considered gambing...its not like you go to a casino or anything... oh wait!!!
41.5 million Playstation Plus subscribers : That's 3.45 million paid subscribers for 1 month = that's around £170 million per month , and they gave us these titles?
A more accurate analogy would be praising Apple for including a headphone jack when you already own a rival phone that has one.
Because it is a great month, maybe not for me but ps plus has millions of subscribers. If I own the games it might not be a great month for me personally but for others that don’t own these titles it is in my opinion.
I assume they mean great month for others, not necessarily themselves.
I don't understand these comments, owns 2/3 and has no idea about Erica but great month. It's like apple removing the headphone jack and someone saying great idea.
Oh my god! Thanks for your awesome response. FIFA Street is the only football game I've ever enjoyed, and really like the look of playground. Unfortunately I'm very much after online as opposed to couch play. You have sold me on NBA 2k20. I don't think I'll be affected by the pay wall as I'll simply be playing a set friend. Thanks again!
For what format? NBA 2K is the standard (but get NBA 2K20, not this one). Everyone who likes basketball plays NBA 2K. It's fairly easy to pick up (my 7 year old plays it regularly) but hard to master (if you go online in a ranked match with <100 hours played you're going to get thrashed - but you can play online against friends of course). It's great fun for two players of roughly the same experience. It's arguably the best sports game of any genre BUT is incredibly reliant on in-game currency, to the point where it feels like the devs are conning you! There is a massive element of 'pay to win' and it's extremely frustrating. That said, you don't need to spend any extra money to play 1v1 against your friends. *** 2K20 Is dirt cheap at the moment, there's no need to buy 2K19, and for various reasons that are beyond the scope of this post, 2K20 is an objectively better game. *** NBA Live is EA's version. Nobody plays NBA Live. The cover athlete on NBA Live plays NBA 2K. The programmers who made NBA Live play NBA 2K. The people who get paid to promote NBA Live play NBA 2K. The only people who play NBA Live are people who download it from EA Access because they get it free and they want to compare it with NBA 2K. They play it for two minutes, realise it's a cheap imitation and delete it again. If you want to know which gaming magazines/websites churn out positive reviews for money, search for positive reviews of NBA Live! NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 is pure arcade action (2v2 rather than basketball's 5v5). It's kinda like FIFA Street used to be to FIFA, except far more over the top. It doesn't aim for realism at all and has very little to do with basketball, it's very much designed for player v player quick games. It's great fun, but a very different style of game to NBA 2K. That's it for current multi-format games. You might also see NBA Jam on backwards compatibility. That was the original (EA) 2v2 arcade style game, but it is approaching 10 years old. It was fantastic in it's day, and worthy of playing if you want to try various basketball games, but on modern consoles, you'll get more mileage from NBA 2K Playgrounds 2. I think that covers all bases?
Not a good deal this. 2k20 is on Game Pass and also £2 odd on cdkeys. More fool you if you’ve bought this
ROFL - thats how poor hotukdeals has gone. its hot but 2k is the same price :P
What's the best basket ball game to play against your mate online? Simpler the better
Great! Thanks :-)
will be free next week on ps plus if you're subscribed to it.
I know he said that, so he checks PSN but he also asked "Any decent PS4 prices around" which the answer is No as there are no cheaper prices like this from 3rd party.
Played it and found all the cut seems and drama a bit boring, when I load a agame I like to play that game, too much gumff in between
This game was £3.99 on PSN less than one month ago. That’s what he’s saying....
I think it's really good, but I like basketball and games that I just dip into from time to time.
Never knew i wanted this but the SA price might be too good to resist.
Really liked the first one and bought a physical copy of this for £15 ages ago. Still haven't played it :( , got too much of a backlog to get through, but if it's as good/better than the first this is an absolute bargain for those that like the NBA Jam games! (Nothing will ever beat the original on MD and SNES)
reminds me of NBA Jam on the mega drive!
I think there was a bug and new firmware out today fixes it if I understand the patch notes correctly
Got this but my memory card is full any good links for cheap memory cards
Bought, cheers 👊
No worries. I meant fantasy football as in the ESPN/Yahoo sports variety where you draft your team and then compete against your friends - and get points based on performance. It's a lot of fun
Nahhh I meant NBA as per the deal in the OP. Do you have any recommendations for the fantasy football games? Yeahh I've applied for a Monzo account so will wait for some deals. Thanks for your help.
I have absolutely zero interest in basketball so I'm going to have to pass this one (embarrassed)
Im £1 short :o
Just Xbox. Available until tomorrow, apparently '1 day left'.
Its been on sale on the Nintendo eshop for a bit as well. However as soon as I saw that it had in app purchases it was a no for me.
does this work on a pc or is it on for xbox?
The game is brilliant if your into nba story line is one of the best for a few years and it’s even better in 4K iv been playing it for months
It's still being shown under 'games under £4' section on the ps store but it must have just literally expired
If you want something like nba jam you have playgrounds 2
I wasn't very good at one of these on PS3, but I did like the management side of it. Can anyone tell me if there's a decent Team Manager side of the game please?
But for 4 quid I'd play it. Got to be fixed by now.
Probably the last one I played, though NBA Jam is still my favourite basketball game.
If I was to buy the fifa 20 legacy edition which comes with online coins, will those coins still be transferred to my uk account Or will only stay on a Turkish psn account
Has this now expired? Showing 399,00 TL on Turkey PSN account
@joeydeacon cheers Joey! Got nba 2k20 yesterday (y)
Yes it does work confirmed when re-bought AC black flag having owned the EU disk previously
Yes you are correct. Doesnt work. Used revolut and did some shopping
Nice just bought it
Pretty dumb logic unless it didn't work in your house, but meh, whatever workss for you
No, absolutely not
No, you can play games you have paid for in 1080p forever without being a Pro member.
I wouldn't play games on Stadia even if they were free.
£2.49 from UK eshop
How do I do this?
About 3 quid if you get it from the Japan eshop
Same price in Argos too https://www.argos.co.uk/product/3103351
Thanks so much @_sion , I redeemed the spec ops key.
The darkness II CAQE5 W0NVA N4HHI Spec Ops. DKEP2 AK3LN 5ET9T
WWE 2002? Never heard of it. (cheeky)
WWE 2K20 should be in a "pay ME £16 to own" category.
https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/humble-2ks-game-together-bundle-from-1-humble-store-3441713 For roughly the same cash, you'll get this and a ton of other stuff.
2k games removed all their games from geforce now meaning I can't play this on my shield, but it sounds like a good thing. I really hate adverts and I really hate product placement, so this game would do my head in! No buy for me, but no heat or cold as it's something I'm not going to buy!
Sounds like the path EA took
I've been playing since 2k11 or 12 I think and it's been a steady decline in 'quality' as the developer push for more and more monetisation of the games 'virtual currency'. The turning point for me was 2k18 and I don't intend to buy the series again. Even if actual gameplay has steadily improved the user experience is significantly worse. I just can't support what 2K have done to one of their golden eggs
Use your eyes mate (y)
Could've made it a bit more obvious! :|
Ps4 link is in the description

What about NBA Street Vol 2. Surely that’s the best NBA game?
Microtransaction hell if I recall correctly
I've been playing this on Games Pass. I have played a few of the previous version too, the story mode (My Career) is trash, so short and focuses on the wrong things, and basically stops as soon as you get to the NBA professionally,and then you are just on your own playing games and no real interactions. Other problem I also came across is not getting sponsorship contracts even though you meet the requirements. These are there to reward you and help you earn more coins to upgrade your player but noooooooo 2K don't play like that (fierce)
99p would be too much.
Nba 20 is on game pass
I’ve played it for a week and enjoyed it quite a bit, there’s truth that VC rules this game though as this is how you get your stats upgraded.
Isn’t this the gambling simulator game with tiny portions of basketball?
Yes when it's for crappy multiplayer/ battle royal games it's called having taste.
Direct link to game, find as last of the add-ons: Here
Yes I know, getting something EXTRA for FREE sure makes me hate a company (shock) (horror) (confused)
Sorry mate busy evening, looks like you sorted it though (y)
Great sale considering Grid was $17.99 when I bought it the other week. Remember Ultimate was $21.49? :/
Why can’t they do SEGA RALLY!!
Just cause 4-complete edition is the best one?
A BC sale has been added to Xbox mate with a lot more games (y) https://majornelson.com/2020/03/09/this-weeks-deals-with-gold-and-spotlight-sale-plus-publisher-sale-14/
