NBA 2K20 x Nike Gamer Exclusive Program Gives Players Chance at In-Game and Real-Life Exclusive New Kicks

Kick it!

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, 2K and Nike announced the NBA 2K20 x Nike Gamer Exclusive Program, a first-of-its-kind gaming and sneaker partnership, which launches alongside the new MyPLAYER Nation mode and NBA season tip-off, on October 22, 2019. The Program will allow NBA 2K20 players the opportunity to earn up to 10 pairs of soon-to-be-released virtual Nike Basketball signature shoes for their MyPLAYER by completing in-game challenges and the chance to purchase the real-life version of the limited-edition shoes from Nike.* MyPLAYER is NBA 2K’s player creation feature that allows gamers the opportunity to build their own basketball player, get drafted, rise through the ranks of the NBA elite, and help take their team to glory.

2K is now taking MyPLAYER to the next level with MyPLAYER Nation, which integrates the community of NBA 2K20 MyPLAYER gamers with the real-life NBA – and the opportunity to unlock exclusive Nike gear. Once gamers create a player, are drafted by a team and join the new season-long NBA 2K20 MyPLAYER Nation mode, they will represent their MyPLAYER’s real-life team as part of a community with other players who also play for the same team. They will play through the NBA schedule, with individual matchup wins and losses determined by the overall community's winning percentage.

Along the way, players will earn double progression on all games played as well as other bonuses, like the chance to unlock the virtual Nike Gamer Exclusive sneakers for your MyPLAYER to wear in-game and purchase real-life versions of the shoes.*

“We’re excited to be the first sports game to offer our players the chance to buy exclusive shoes from their favorite Nike athletes,” said Alfie Brody, VP of Global Marketing at 2K. “We always strive to push the boundaries of in-game partnerships and offer our players unique experiences alongside traditional basketball gameplay. We can’t wait to see our fans progress through the challenges to unlock and purchase each pair.”

NBA 2K20 players will need to link their 2K account with a Nike account and download the Nike SNKRS App, as the shoes won’t be available for direct purchase from Nike without completing specific in-game challenges. The first challenge will take place on October 29, 2019 and other shoes will be available at key moments during the NBA season including NBA All-Star 2020, NBA Playoffs and the NBA Finals.

“The Nike Basketball Gamer Exclusive program is a natural and innovative extension of our great partnership with NBA 2K," said Eric Wood, Nike’s VP of Digital Partnerships. “By now giving NBA 2K gamers the opportunity to connect their membership platforms we are unlocking a new way for those who live the game virtually, and physically, to earn access to a very cool range of exclusive Nike products.”

NBA 2K20 gets a 30-second Japanese commercial

You guys know that I know nothing about traditional sports, which means I know even less about the popularity of American sports teams around the world. I guess the NBA is popular enough in Japan for NBA 2K20 to release there! It'll be interesting to see where this one lands on the charts when it launches later this week.

UPDATE - A 15-second spot was released as well.

PEGI explains why they didn't flag NBA 2K20's slot machine mechanic as gambling

It looks like gambling, but it's not

We share a trailer for NBA 2K20 the other day, which got a lot of people talking. The trailer showed a number of mechanics in the upcoming game, including a straightforward virtual slot machine. Many were upset to see this display in-game, following years of complaints about microtransactions. It also seemed a bit tone-deaf, considering recent efforts to get this kind of content labeled as gambling. How in the world is it that an actual representation of a slot machine wasn't enough to set off any red flags? PEGI has come forward to explain their lack of flagging.

PEGI says its gambling content descriptor doesn’t apply, as the mini-games int the title don't “encourage and/or teach the use of games of chance that are played/carried out as a traditional means of gambling.” They went on to say that “the controversial imagery played a central role in the trailer, but it may not necessarily do so in the game, which has not yet been released.” The content earned through these mini-games can't be purchased with real money, so there isn't actually anything that could be considered gambling by PEGI.

The explanation makes sense, but the decision to have mini-games play out as slot machines still doesn't sit will with some fans.
