Mamba Forever Edition Includes Standard Edition For Other Gen

Postby Andrew on Fri Jul 03, 2020 1:21 am

As reported by Operation Sports, the Mamba Forever Edition will also grant access to a copy of the Standard Edition on the opposite generation.

In other words, if you buy the Mamba Forever Edition on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, it'll include a copy of the Standard Edition on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X at no additional cost, saving you having to double-dip if you decide to upgrade around the holiday season. Buying the Mamba Forever Edition on PS5/XSX will likewise include access to a copy of the Standard Edition on PS4 and X1. I'm guessing more people will be going forwards than backwards on that deal, but it's worth noting all the same.

Also note that the offer only applies to the Mamba Forever edition. It also doesn't apply to the PC version, which has been confirmed as being a Current Gen port this year.

So this Kobe's edition is just like any other previous legends editions, its all about money and VC.
2K will give nothing to an association or to the mamba academy ?

No word on any charitable donations at this time. It's something they could be doing quietly, but given it would be good PR to mention it, it's probably not a stretch to conclude they aren't.
