Sports Business: 2K Sports Announces NBA/MLB Combo Pack

2K Sports, a subsidiary of sports business company Take-Two Interactive Software Inc., has announced that the critically acclaimed NBA 2K13 will be paired with the upcoming MLB 2K13 in a combo pack.

The combo pack will be available for purchase beginning on March 5, 2013 at participating North American retailers for $79.99, for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles.

The combo pack will feature a full retail version of 2K Sports’ new baseball title, MLB 2K13, along with a full retail version of NBA 2K13, both of which currently retail for $59.99 individually. The combo pack equals great savings, a smart sports business decision by 2K Sports in helping thier fans save money on their titles.

Fans who purchase the combo pack, in addition to those who purchase the standalone MLB 2K13 title, will be eligible to compete in this year’s Perfect Game Challenge, which will award a sum total of $1 million across 31 prize pools for gamers who pitch the best perfect games in this year’s contest.

This season’s coverboys for the game titles include Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant for NBA 2K13 and Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price for MLB 2K13. Both athletes come with great notoriety and chimed in on the games.

“I’ve been a fan of NBA 2K13 cover athlete Kevin Durant for years and to share a video game cover with one of basketball’s elite players is a big honor,” said Price.

“Fans can expect to experience 2K Sports’ signature authenticity throughout this new package, from the sting of my fastball to Kevin’s clutch shooting.”

“Being named as a face of NBA 2K13 was an honor, but adding a Cy Young winner like David makes the cover that much more memorable,” said Durant.

“Fans can expect the ultimate sports package with him and me gracing 2K Sports’ latest bundle.”
