Black Friday 2018 is here and it’s an ideal opportunity to grab yourself some video games that you can play with family and friends throughout the holiday season. Sports games are always a great way to pass some time, settle existing feuds, or start new ones, and if you’re a fan of basketball, NBA 2K19 is probably something you’ll want to consider grabbing-especially on sale.
It seems that most retailers have reached the same discount price for NBA 2K19, with the game available for $30 at Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and the PlayStation Store across both their PS4 and Xbox One versions. The one retailer going its own way is GameStop, which will be selling the game for $27-but only in-store (not online). You can find links to them below. The Nintendo Switch version has also seen a discount at various retailers, though the place with it still in stock as of this writing is Nintendo’s Eshop, where it’s going for $30.
In GameSpot’s NBA 2K19 review, Michael Higham said the «core NBA 2K mechanics are challenging and rewarding» and that it offers a variety of game modes to enjoy. «If you want to immerse yourself in the sport and culture, NBA 2K19 has you covered with a breadth of content,» he continued. «But even that has its limitations after several years of iterations. Although those willing to grind for everything will eventually get rewarded, the system of VC still comes off as exploitative. But there’s a lot of fun to be had in NBA 2K19 despite its flaws, especially if you have a strong love for the sport.
«NBA 2K19 dishes out what you’d expect from the franchise: accessible yet deep core mechanics that often work just right and occasionally falter. Beyond that, there’s a full roster of ways to enjoy the sport thanks to a robust package of game modes.»
