The next edition is the NBA 2K23 WNBA Edition, which features both Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi on the cover. In addition to the base rewards for preorder, the WNBA edition will also give players a Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi jersey in the W and MyCareer. The price points for the WNBA edition will be the same as the Standard edition, sitting at $60 and $70 for last-gen and new-gen.
The NBA 2K23 Digital Deluxe Edition will cost $80 but will also include a lot more than just the base preorder rewards. In addition to the base rewards, players will receive 10K MyTeam Points, 10 MyTeam Tokens, 23 MyTeam Promo Packs, A Free Agent Option Pack, A Ruby Coach Card Pack, Sapphire Devin Booker and Michael Jordan MyTeam Cards, A Diamond Jordan Shoe, and 10 Gatorade Boosts for each MyCareer Skill Type and Gatorade Boost Type. Players will also receive 1 2-Hr Double XP Coin, 4 Cover Star T-Shirts, A Backpack, Arm Sleeve, and a Custom-designed Cover Star Skateboard.
The next edition is the NBA 2K23 Michael Jordan Edition, which will cost $100 and include some more rewards than the Digital Deluxe Edition. All of the rewards will be the same between the two except for the additional Virtual Currency. The Michael Jordan Edition will include 100K Virtual Currency for players that are looking to get ahead in the MyCareer game mode. In previous games, players could spend $25 inside the game and receive 75K Virtual Currency, meaning that the additional $20 for this addition could be a steal for many players.

Finally, the NBA 2K23 Championship Edition is the most expensive at $150 but will include the most content and rewards by far. The preorder rewards will include the same items as the Michael Jordan edition, but much more will be added as well. Those who order the Championship Edition will also receive a 12 Month NBA League Pass Subscription, a 10% XP Boost on MyTEAM Season Progression, 10% XP Boost on MyCAREER Season Progression, and a Michael Jordan-themed Go-Kart. An NBA League Pass Subscription normally costs $15 a month, meaning that the Championship Edition of the game is the best value for NBA fans looking to watch games.
Although the release date for NBA 2K23 is not until September 9, many fans of the franchise will surely look to preorder the game due to the high number of rewards available.
