NBA 2k20 Steam Predownload

It appears PS4 and Xbox have already gotten the option to start downloading the game. Does anyone know if Steam had that option last year?

I was able to pre-load on PC. I imagine it'll be the same this year, likely within the next 48 hours.

Was that a better price from there? I'm just worried because my download speed is so slow at home.

That's the added bonus for dealing with shady resellers who in best case buy the keys in cheaper regions, slowly making it worse for everyone. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Greenmangaming and 2game arent shady, but Instant Gaming is.

It was discounted at the time I pre-ordered from them. That sale might be over, but it did save around $10 AUD.

Nah, we just arent sure with Instant G and their keys. Less shady than G2A and other dark website (if i remember u are french, so look the JB Show video about it).

Don't know JBS but i read many things about black/grey market on CanardPC. I ordered once on G2 Play (2k18), my game still works.
But as long as 2K is so greedy, i dont want to pay 50€ for their game.
This year, black/grey market prices are too high. I've found a key for 33£ at 2game, which is a reliable store according to IsThereAnyDeal

ITAD is great resource to get legit places.

Instant Gaming themselves admit they scan codes which means they buy from cheap regions and resell for profit, but under price for US/EU/AUS/etc.

It's more about "i will have my key (maybe) tomorrow or this friday ;-;" not even knowing if the keys will be on time.

Either way, there was some activity within Steam packages yesterday and it's 6 AM in San Francisco now, so I'd expect pre-load might be available in the next ~12 hours.

Yeah I’ve been on console since 2k16, only just making my return to PC midway through the release of 2k19. Wasn’t sure the timetable for PC preloading.

I get what you mean now though

Just finished the pre-load. Isn't 77.7 GB a bit much?
