GameSpot is a video gaming website that provides news, reviews, previews, downloads, and other information on video games. The site was launched on May 1, 1996, created by Pete Deemer, Vince Broady and Jon Epstein. It was purchased by ZDNet, a brand which was later purchased by CNET Networks.
NBA 2K21‘s next-gen edition was among the first games across the industry to carry a $70 USD price tag, a decision that drew a lot of comments online.
The higher price point was embraced and accepted by the playerbase, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said on an earnings call, but it’s too soon to say if the company’s other next-gen games will also come with that premium price tag.
Asked if he felt it was the right strategy to charge $10 more for NBA 2K21’s next-gen edition, Zelnick said in no uncertain terms: “Yes.”
