Now all of the various Collector’s Editions have been announced, 2K Sports has revealed NBA 2K23’s traditional cover star: Phoenix Suns shooting guard and NBA All-Star Devin Booker. He’ll front both the standard physical release for both PS5 and PS4, as well as the cross-gen Digital Deluxe Edition, which grants you access to both of this year’s games.
“It’s a dream come true to see myself on the cover of NBA 2K,” beamed Booker. “I’ve been a huge NBA 2K fan since I was a kid, and it’s surreal to finally join the exclusive club of basketball greats who’ve been cover athletes. I’m also honoured to share this year’s covers with the iconic Michael Jordan, who changed the game for all players who came after him, as well as two of the all-time WNBA GOATs, Diana Taurasi and Sue Bird, who continue to make a huge impact on the game.”
That means there are four editions of the game this year – and a fifth, GameStop exclusive WNBA Edition, which we reported on yesterday. The standard release will cost £59.99/$59.99 on PS4 and £69.99/$69.99 on PS5. Then the Digital Deluxe, available from the PS Store, will cost £74.99/$79.99 for both versions and a ton of in-game content, including 23 MyTeam Promo Packs and some MyCareer goodies. The Michael Jordan Edition will cost £89.99/$99.99 and comes with 100k VC, while the £129.99/$149.99 Champion Edition comes with a 12-month subscription to the NBA League Pass as well.
