    I don't care about sports games at all. But if it's as easy a 1000g as last time, I'm in.

    I'd never played an NBA game before and after playing the NBA 2k17 Prelude I'll probably not bother again. Really uninteresting to me, even for a free/quick 1000G
    Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

    As above, not a fan of sports games but if it's the same as last year, I'll be giving it a quick go for the gamerscore

    Hopefully, the load times aren't as terrible and the cut scenes are skippable this year. Not that I've any right to complain.

    1000G for free headspin

    I thought the mini story was quite fun last year... Enjoyed the Prelude but won't be playing the main game

    Free and easy gs? Sounds like marketing that I can get behind even if I won't buy the main game either. laugh
    I'm always willing to help other players boost achievements even if I already have them. Just ask!

    If so, it'll probably be the second NBA game I ever play

    My own thoughts exactly
    I do like it when the red stuff comes out.

    Basketball is barely a sport but for 1000 free gs I can suffer it for an hour or two.

    I never played last years Prelude but may get it done this weekend as I expect they will soon turn the servers for it off or something like that if this one is imminent.

    For everyone looking forward to a quick 1000G just be aware that there were a number of issues with last year's game with achievements not unlocking for some - not sure if they ever got them to unlock, but last I saw people were being left with permanently missed cheevs as you couldn't replay the game. Might have been fixed in the end but I gave up caring no more than 10 minutes into that borefest.

    Hopefully it's just as easy as last year's. Magic Magician and his purple mohawk will be making a comeback!

    As others have stated, hopefully it's as easy as last year, but hopefully it's not as glitchy as last year, as I remember several people reporting issues.

    As it is a promotional title, I expect it to be nice and easy.

    All hail free stuff. Although, playing last year's prelude ended up with me buying the main game to continue my progress...I wanted to know where I got drafted dangit! facepalm

    Wish they would do this with more games. Thumbs up.
