‘NBA 2K17’ Capitalizes on Kobe Retirement with new ‘Legend Edition’
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:
- Limited-edition Kobe poster.
- Two Kobe Panini trading cards.
- Black Mamba game controller skin.
- 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.
