2K Sports has announced a new deal today which will see Best Buy become the exclusive retailer of the NBA 2K12
Game of the Year Edition (at least, until it's traded into Gamestop). The GOTY edition will come with the "Legends Showcase
" DLC as well as a commemorative poster featuring the three cover stars: Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and a player from the L.A. Lakers whose name I refuse to say.
The Game of the Year Edition will be available in North America for $49.99 upon release. No other regional availability was explicitly announced, but we'll keep on the lookout for such information. NBA 2K12
won 26 Sports Game of the Year awards and is commonly regarded as the greatest basketball sim of all-time, if not the greatest sports game ever, as well. An exclusivity deal like this is the best steal of the season by someone not wearing a jersey that says Rondo
on the back.
