Price

The NBA 2K23 Championship Edition costs $149.99 on all platforms.

Rewards

In addition to pre order bonuses, players will receive the following rewards with the NBA 2K23 Championship Edition:

  • 12-Month NBA League Pass Subscription
  • 10% XP Boost on MyTEAM and MyCAREER Season Progression
  • 100K VC
  • 10K MT
  • 10 Tokens
  • 23 MyTEAM Promo Packs
    • Receive 10 when you first launch the game plus an Amethyst topper pack, then receive 2 per week for 6 weeks.
  • Sapphire Devin Booker
  • Ruby Michael Jordan
  • Free Agent Option MyTEAM Pack
  • Diamond Jordan Shoe MyTEAM Card
  • Ruby Coach Card MyTEAM Pack
  • 10 Boosts for each MyCAREER Skill Boost type
  • 10 Boosts for each Gatorade Boost type
  • 2-Hr Double XP Coin
  • 4 Cover Star T-Shirts for your MyPLAYER
  • MyPLAYER Backpack and Arm Sleeves
  • Custom-designed Cover Star Skateboard for MyCAREER

Most of the rewards above line up with other editions, but it's the 12 Month NBA League Pass Subscription that is the real gem of the Championship Edition and the reason it is so expensive in comparison.

While $150 for the game may seem excessive, NBA League Pass alone for 12 months would cost $180 at their current $15 per month price point.

It also comes with an invaluable permanent 10% XP Boost for Season Progression in MyTEAM and MyCAREER that will give competitive players a huge advantage for the whole year.

The NBA 2K23 Championship Edition may be their most expensive in series history, but it's got enough value packed in to make that worthwhile.

However, we do want to clarify that the NBA League Pass offer is not available in Japan, China, Belarus, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Kosovo, North Korea, Russia, South Sudan, Sudan, Swaziland, and Syria.

NBA 2K23 Digital Deluxe Edition

Following in the footsteps of last year's Cross-Gen Bundle, the NBA 2K23 Digital Deluxe Edition offers a more affordable option for players who plan to upgrade soon from PS4 or Xbox One to a next gen counterpart.
