In a unique but welcome strategy, fans who pre-order NBA 2K16 from participating North American retailers will receive the game Friday, September 25 - four days before the street date of September 29. Along with getting the game before the general public, pre-orders will also receive 10,000 VC and a select MyTeam package. (Click here to pre-order from Amazon
The Early Tip-Off Weekend (as NBA 2K bills it) appears to have two primary goals.

Second, it is an enticing pre-order bonus for those who may be on proverbial fence (for several reasons) but will be unable to wait on buying once they see friends and acquaintances with the title.
