NBA 2K13 is out: make sure you buy the PH version as in-game items are region locked

XPLAY.PH sells NBA2K13 at the following prices:
PS3 PHP 2,595
XBOX 360 PHP 2,495
PC PHP 1,995
PSP PHP 1,895

Just a friendly PSA from the good guys of NBA 2K13 — with the game being released this week in the Philippines for all platforms, it needs to be noted that if you’re going to be playing this on the PC, XBOX 360 or Playstation 3, you absolutely should get your copy from a local vendor as the in-game items are region-locked.

I’m not a huge sports gamer on the console and PC (my brother is) but I can understand the huge frustration when you bring home a disk from another region expecting to be able to access the online features and DLC’s — and you can’t because they’re blocked from South East Asia.

So, do yourself a favor and buy original from a local vendor. If you’re planning on ordering this from Steam (like its predecessors), it isn’t available.

On another note, if you’re willing to spend a bit more for freebies, check out the Dynasty Edition which gives you the following additional items:
