2ksports’ NBA 2k9 will be coming to PC’s everywhere on October 21st, according to a post at the 2k sports forums. This comes after rival basketball franchise NBA Live 09 decided it wont be coming for PCs this year (aka abandoned), breaking a traditional yearly release schedule. Awesome news for NBA 2k9 fans like me. For PC NBA Live players who haven’t played 2k9, 2k8, 2k7 on the xbox 360: This is the best basketball franchise available. Time to upgrade those PC basketball skillz.
NBA 2k9 on Steam and will only cost 19.99USD
