How to Get NBA 2K17 VC

Published

on

Every video game worth playing for longer than just a few days has an economy at this point. NBA 2K17, this year’s must-have basketball simulation, is no different. The franchise added Virtual Currency years ago; today that currency is used for buying MyPlayer enhancements and more. Getting NBA 2K17 VC is crucial.

Luckily, developer Visual Concepts makes it relatively easy to get your hands on VC. In the game itself, users need only create a MyPlayer, then run that player through a few seasons to start stacking up Virtual Currency. There are all sorts of other wrinkles too, like endorsement deals to consider on your MyPlayer’s off days. Away from the game, you can earn NBA 2K17 VC using the refreshed companion app for the game.

There are lots of different ways for you to earn NBA 2K17 VC.

What NBA 2K17 VC is?

First an explanation of what VC is. VC stands for Virtual Currency, and in NBA 2K17 it’s a surrogate for real money. Doing activities in the game earns you Virtual Currency to spend how you see fit. Sometimes you’ll want to snag performance improvements for your MyPlayer. Other times you may want to simply purchase some cosmetic items to get your MyPlayer’s look right on the court.

Visual Concepts built in lots of different ways to earn Virtual Currency, but those ways do take time. Publisher 2K Games and Visual Concepts are both hoping that those who don’t have the time to build up a stash of Virtual Currency through the game’s modes will want to buy Virtual Currency through the Xbox Store and PlayStation Store.

How to Get NBA 2K17 VC in the Game?

Place a Pre-Order for Free NBA 2K17 VC

By far, the easiest way to get your hands on NBA 2K17 Virtual Currency is to go out and purchase the game. Pre-orders for NBA 2K17 all come with Virtual Currency. How much you get depends on which version of the game you want.

Pre-orders of the basic version of the game come with 5,000 VC. The Gold Legend Edition of the game, the version that costs $99.99 and includes Kobe Bryant related extras, comes with 100,000 VC. The regular Legend Edition of the game comes with 30,000 VC.

Get NBA 2K17 VC in MyCareer

MyCareer is the primary way 2K and Visual Concepts hope players will earn NBA 2K17 VC. Throughout the mode, there are ways to stack up on it.

NBA 2K17 The Prelude (7)

The easiest way is to keep competing in season games. In addition to winning games on the court, MyPlayer includes an endorsement system that’s built into the game’s Off Days simulation. Simply put, when you aren’t playing in a league game, you have the option to practice or take on an endorsement deal to get you more Virtual Currency.

Taking on more of the endorsement deals will have you stacking Virtual Currency pretty quickly, but it’s important to get in some practice time too. Not doing so could have big ramifications for your MyPlayer’s standing with his team mates and more.

Earn NBA 2K17 VC from Simulating Games in MyLeague

The MyLeague mode allows you to create a customized version of the National Basketball League, then simulate what’s going to happen for months and years to come.

Letting the simulation run earns you a limited amount of Virtual Currency, whether you win or lose.

Buy More NBA 2K17 VC

Of course, if you’re one of the millions who want to enjoy NBA 2K17, but don’t have a lot of time to invest in it, there’s nothing wrong with just buying the Virtual Currency that you need. That’s pretty easy to do.

NBA 2k17 VC

Virtual Currency comes in four different packs, all available for different prices. The more the pack costs, the more NBA 2K17 VC you get with your purchase. $4.99 adds 15,000 in Virtual Currency to the game. The $9.99 Virtual Currency pack adds $35 in VC to your player account. The $19.99 pack adds 75,000 in VC to your account. The 200,000 VC pack costs $49.99. You can purchase these backs through the Xbox Store or PlayStation Store. They’re also available as codes from GameStop.

How to Get NBA 2K17 VC On the Go?

My NBA 2K17 is meant for lovers of the franchise that aren’t at home, but do want to stay connected to the game. It’s also how users add their face scans to the title and rack up more Virtual Currency.

my nba 2k17 vc

Just logging into the app for the first time gets you a bit of Virtual Currency. After that, you can go back for new ways to earn even more. New tasks to get VC arrive daily. Some of them are as simple as completing a game in the mobile app.

Do check the app daily, but don’t count on it for all of your Virtual Currency needs. The app only allows you to earn so much VC for a particular task on a given day.

Good luck stacking Virtual Currency in NBA 2K17.

NBA 2K17 Features: Guest Teams

Everyone loves the league’s most iconic teams but getting them into NBA 2K wasn’t easy. The game’s rosters stay in sync with the real league’s roster. Unless 2K Games adds them, there’s no way you’re getting your hands on the classic Chicago Bulls line-up.

The NBA 2K17 features list includes a few team rosters that lovers of the game will already be familiar with. The entire team for the 1992 USA Basketball Men’s National Team is getting treated as downloadable content. Those that pre-order the game get the team roster at no additional charge. Also known as the Dream Team, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Charles Barkley and Christian Laettner are included. The latter two haven’t been available in a NBA 2K game before.

Players don’t have to use the Dream Team if they don’t want to. The 2016 USA Basketball Men’s Team is available, along with the Australian Boomers, developer Visual Concepts confirms.

PS5 Pre-Order Problems: What You Need To Know

Published

on

If you are running into PS5 pre-order problems you are not alone. We experienced a collection of pre-order problems last night and some continue through today.

This is what you need to know about the PS5 pre-order problems and errors, plus what you can do about some of them.

PS5 Pre-Order Errors

What you need to know about PS5 pre-order problems.

Retailer websites broke under the string of PS5 pre-orders this week. These problems included error pages and some checkout systems going completely offline.

This appears to be better right now, but as the PS5 is in stock again at retailers this could flare up over the coming weeks.

There is nothing for you to do since this is on the retailer end. Simply try again.

PS5 Out of Stock

The PS5 is out of stock at most retailers, which is a problem in itself. Supply of the PS5 is low, likely in part to COVID and standard console launch constraints, so it is inevitable.

We have a guide on how you can find the PS5 in stock. We have direct links to check stock and a way to get notifications.

PS5 Removed from Cart and Checkout Problems

The most annoying PS5 pre-order problem we experienced was not being able to checkout with the PS5 Digital Edition in our cart.

This happened to us at Target because we had to add a new payment method.

If you ran into this on day one, you can make sure that your accounts are up to date and ready for when the PS5 is back in stock.

PS5 Accessories Out of Stock

Another major issue that we are seeing, and that will be a big problem near Christmas, is that the accessories will be out of stock.

Controllers, cameras, and other accessories are already tough to find. If you see one in stock, snap it up. You can always cancel the order if you find a different one that you want.

PS5 Pre-Order Not Coming on Release Day

A frustrating PS5 pre-order problem arrived by email last week.

Amazon sent out warnings to PS5 pre-order holders to let them know that they might not actually get their PS5 on November 12th.

There is still a good chance that Amazon will be able to deliver on time, especially with the recent promise of more pre-orders, but you should temper your expectations.

PlayStation 5 Console
  • Lightning Speed - Harness the power of a custom CPU, GPU, and SSD with Integrated I/O that rewrite the rules of what a PlayStation console can do.
  • Stunning Games - Marvel at incredible graphics and experience new PS5 features.
  • Breathtaking Immersion - Discover a deeper gaming experience with support for haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and 3D Audio technology.

5 Xbox Series X Pre-Order Tips & Tricks

Published

on

Do you want to make sure that you get an Xbox Series X pre-order? Or the Xbox Series S? We have a collection of tips that will help you avoid pre-order problems and increase the chances that you get a new console on release day.

The Xbox Series S is $299 and the Xbox Series X is $499. Pre-orders start at 11 AM Eastern, 8 AM Pacific on September 22nd.

Read: Get the Best Gaming Chair You Can Buy

Check Account Passwords Now

When the Xbox Series X pre-orders start you need to be ready to go. This is not the time to be resetting a Best Buy or Walmart password or creating an account.

Spend 10 minutes this weekend making sure that you can log in to Microsoft, GameStop, Best Buy, Amazon, Target, and Walmart.

This can mean the difference between getting a new Xbox on day one and waiting months.

Update Payment Information

While you are logged in make sure that your credit card is up to date and that shipping and billing information is updated.

The time that you spend updating any of this, could be long enough to miss out on getting the Xbox Series X or Series S in November.

Be Ready to Checkout

Now that you can log in and your credit card is up to date, you need to be prepared to checkout as soon as the console is in your cart.

Some links to Amazon may even put the Xbox Series X directly into your cart.

Don’t wonder about tax, warranties, or look for coupon codes. Check out and get a confirmation. The console can disappear from your cart. This is not like a ticket checkout process where you are holding an item for a few minutes.

Use Websites Not Apps

Websites tend to offer a better chance to get a console this year. The PS5 pre-orders worked best on websites, with some apps just showing the landing pages while other people were ordering.

It’s a good idea to have apps available as a backup, but start on the website and be on the lookout for links directly to the products on social media.

You Can Always Cancel Later

If you really want the Xbox Series S, but it is out of stock, you may want to lock in the Xbox Series X pre-order and then decide later.

You can cancel your pre-order pretty easily at most retailers if you find the version that you really want somewhere else.

It is best to lock in pre-order and fine-tune it later.

on

While it would be great if Cyberpunk 2077 ran beautifully on every single PC, that obviously won’t be the case. CD Projekt Red has finally shared the game’s PC requirements and we want to go over the most important details and show you how to check if your computer meets the threshold.

A lot of companies wait until just before a game’s released to unveil the PC requirements. CD Projekt Red isn’t your typical company though.

The Cyberpunk 2077 release date doesn’t land until November, but the company has already released the game’s minimum and recommended PC requirements. This is great news if you’ve been thinking about putting in a pre-order.

If you plan to buy the game for a console, you have nothing to worry about. Open up the game, install it and you’re good to go. Cyberpunk 2077 for PC is a different beast because your PC needs to meet certain hardware specifications.

Today we want to share three important details regarding the Cyberpunk 2077 PC requirements. If you’ve been thinking about buying the game for PC, here’s what you need to know before you pick up the game for yourself or someone else.

Cyberpunk 2077 PC Requirements

First, we’ll start with the requirements themselves. If you’re familiar with your PC’s internals, you can simply check out this list and compare them to your specs.

Will Cyberpunk 2077 Run On My PC?

You can use a simple tool to quickly find out if your computer is capable of running Cyberpunk 2077.

Sites like Can You Run It and PCGameBenchmark provide a quick and easy way to determine if your PC meets the minimum and/or recommended specs.

Some of you might need to upgrade your video card. Many others will meet the thresholds with ease. If you’re unfamiliar with your CPUs internal specifications, or you don’t consider yourself an expert, these tools will save you sometime.

What If My PC Doesn’t Meet Cyberpunk 2077 Specs?

We can’t tell you exactly will happen if your PC fails to meet the minimum requirements, but you can count on horrible performance that will, in a lot of cases, make the game unplayable.

If you want to have the best possible experience on PC, you’ll want to make sure your computer meets the recommended specifications.

While Cyberpunk 2077 will work on PC’s that barely meet the minimum requirements, you probably won’t be able to run the game on the highest settings.

If you barely meet the threshold, be on the look out for deals on PC equipment as we approach the game’s release date.

6 Reasons to Pre-Order Cyberpunk 2077 & 4 Reasons to Wait

Published

on

Cyberpunk 2077 is almost here. We have an official release date and retailers are taking pre-orders. While some of you might want to buy a copy right now, many others are better off waiting.

It took awhile, Cyberpunk 2077 was originally confirmed all the way back in 2012, but we’re finally inching closer to the game’s release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Google Stadia, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S.

If you’re just catching wind of it, the game is a sequel to Mike Pondsmith’s pen and paper RPG Cyberpunk 2020. Cyberpunk 2020 was released all the way back in 1988.

CD Projekt Red’s taking its time, but fans of Cyberpunk and The Witcher series are hoping the developer can recreate the magic it delivered back in 2015 with The Witcher 3.

The developer initially confirmed the release date for April 16th, but decided to push it to September 17th to add some additional polish.

Unfortunately, the game got delayed again and the new Cyberpunk 2077 release date is now set for November 19th. Fortunately, it sounds like this is the final delay. CD Projekt Red says it doesn’t expect to push the game’s release date any further than November.

If you’re looking to buy Cyberpunk 2077 for Google Stadia, it looks like the release date might come a little later. CD Projekt Red says the game will debut on Google’s platform “by the end of the year.”

Get the Best Gaming Chair You Can Buy

Retailers like Amazon and Best Buy, and GameStop are taking pre-orders for two versions of the game. There is the standard $60 version and there’s also an expensive Collector’s Edition that comes with a bunch of extras.

Now that we know more about the direction the game is taking, some of you, particularly those of you who are fond of CD Projekt Red’s games, might be thinking about pre-ordering a copy.

In this guide we’re going to take you through the best reasons to pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 right now. We’ll also take you through some reasons to think about holding off for a few more weeks or longer.
