The Los Angeles Lakers are NBA champions, which is why it was probably a good idea to place Kobe Bryant on the cover of NBA 2K10 . But for next season, if you really want to go all out, you need the special collectors edition.
Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the franchise, this special package will feature an actual 2K Sports game storage locker with a combination lock (max capacity: 20 games), an exclusive McFarlane Toys Kobe Bryant figurine, a 16"x36" Kobe poster, an anniversary video that backtracks through the NBA 2K series, and access to the Gold Room and VIP online lobby in the game. Is that enough? Considering what you get, the price isn't that outlandish – $99.99 – but it'd be wise to remember that a whole lot of Collectors editions will hit store shelves later this year. Perhaps you'll have to be selective; do you want this massive bundle or the one that's slated to drop for Assassin's Creed II ? Well, we leave the decision to you, but for NBA followers, there likely won't be a better option unless EA steps up with something big for NBA Live 10 . That's a competition that has raged for a decade and although 2K Sports' effort has often taken the crown, EA has been charging as of late.
NBA 2K10 is set to launch this October, which is good timing for the upcoming 2010 season. If you're a fan of a team that has no hope of reaching the finals ('cough' T'Wolves 'cough'), maybe you can build 'em up in the game.
