NBA 2K16 Off Like A Shot, Sets Records
Looks like a lot of people are enjoying NBA 2K16 right now.
2K Sports has announced that the latest basketball installment has shipped over 4 million copies worldwide in its first week. It officially launched on September 29, though everyone who pre-ordered could play it four days earlier.
2K basketball operations senior vice president Jason Argent said gamers around the world "are buying this title faster and in greater numbers than ever before." The game set the company's digital record as well, doubling sales from last year's effort in the first week. And there have been triple the number of online games played so far when compared to NBA 2K15. The latter title shipped over 7 million copies all told and it looks like this year's entry is well on its way to topping that number.
We found the inclusion of the lackluster Spike Lee story disappointing and unimpressive, but the core game is still pretty darn good. Gonna try it? NBA 2K16 is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
