‘NBA 2K17’ Capitalizes on Kobe Retirement with new ‘Legend Edition’

kobe game

How much attention is being paid to Kobe Bryant right about now? Enough that it seems to be a smart move for NBA 2K17 to release a whole new edition of its game, this time with the subtitle, “Legend Edition.”

What exactly does that mean?

It means you probably have to be a really big Kobe fan to buy it. Here’s the roster of new features, from Game Spot: 

Physical Items:

  • Limited-edition Kobe poster.
  • Two Kobe Panini trading cards.
  • Black Mamba game controller skin.

Digital Content:

  • 30,000 Virtual Currency.
  • MyTEAM Bundle + (includes 3 packs with guaranteed Kobe limited use card).
  • Nike Kobe 11 retirement shoes.
  • Kobe #8 Mitchell and Ness jersey.
  • Kobe hoodie.

Hmm. That doesn’t sound like THAT great a value for $80, but for a Kobe fan, it could be the steal of a lifetime.

Oh, and naturally, Kobe’s on the cover of the box, which is pretty much the whole point of this exercise.
