Should I Buy NBA 2K23 Michael Jordan Edition?
NBA 2K23 offers multiple editions, and the version with MJ on the cover is a premium choice. But is the NBA 2K23 Michael Jordan Edition worth it? Your decision will mostly depend on how much you plan to play the game and also which modes are most interesting for you. If you're just into regular games, you don't need the extra 100K VC that you get in MJ Edition.
Also, remember that those VCs are not free, as the NBA 2K23 Deluxe Edition without this bonus costs $20 less. You can always buy 75,000 VC with that money, meaning the Jordan version gives you 25,000 VC for $5. If you plan to commit to this game until NBA 2K24 comes along, MJ Edition is the best choice.
