It is confirmed that the NBA 2K21 game will cost $70 for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, that is, $10 more than games for current consoles.
It seems that the games for the next-gen consoles of Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 will be more expensive than the games for the current consoles, at least this can be predicted by the price of NBA 2K21 from the company Visual Concepts.
As we all know, in the United States, a game usually costs $60; apparently, however, the titles for the next consoles will increase about $10. It is what can be deduced after Visual Concepts revealed on Thursday, July 2 that the price of NBA 2K21 will be the US $70 for the next-generation of consoles. You can verify the price for the next-gen version of the game at this link.
According to reports, the $70 price brings forward a price increase for games coming to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Visual Concepts is one of the first game retailers to reveal the price of one of its major next-gen titles.
The price increase is not excused by the function of buying the game for the current console and then updating it for the new consoles without having to pay. NBA 2K21 will have a themed version featuring player Kobe Bryant that will cost $100 and will be the only version with the automatic update.
If players buy the game in its $70 version, they should be aware that it will only work for the next-gen console that will go on sale until the end of the year. The game, by contrast, is expected to hit in stores in September. The version for the Xbox One and PS4 costs the US $60 and will be playable from September, although it cannot be updated for future consoles.
Recall that NBA 2K21 will release on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia on September 4, 2020.
