The NBA 2K18 Legend Edition and Legend Edition Gold will be available in both digital and physical formats (local pricing will be available soon), on PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, and Xbox One. The NBA 2K18 Legend Edition and Legend Edition Gold will be available in physical format on Nintendo Switch.

NBA 2K18 will be available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC platforms on September 19, 2017.

Pinoy fans who wish to pre-order NBA 2K18 can already do so via the PlayStation store Singapore (!/en-sg/home/games) ensuring they receive their copy and in-game bonuses four days early beginning September 15, 2017. Physical pre-order details will be available at your favorite game retailer, soon.

No word yet on who the official NBA 2K18 cover athlete will be but given his otherworldly performance this regular season, I’m willing to bet it’s Russel Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder.


Allan Abaca is an avid gamer through and through. Virtually, he is locked-in with his PS4 almost daily and has just introduced the awesomeness of gaming to his two sons.

Next in his sights is PC gaming. The platform which he nows considering going back to after a two decade hiatus.

Oh, and let's not forget the Nintendo Switch...
