As the NBA 2K franchise continues to grow, so do the costs associated with building the best possible team and the microtransactions that come with it. The amount of money expected to be spent on builds and microtransactions in NBA 2K23 is a contentious issue among the gaming community. The costs have risen over the years, and it must be challenging for some to keep up.

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick's Contract Extension Encourages Increased Microtransactions
Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick has a contract extension that includes a section called "Recurrent Consumer Spending", which is essentially a bonus if microtransactions in games such as NBA 2K and Grand Theft Auto Online reach a certain level. This suggests that Take-Two is incentivizing players to purchase more microtransactions to reach the financial goals set out by Zelnick.
The Impact of Microtransactions on Gaming: Limitations and Frustrations
This aggressive approach to microtransactions has made some gamers feel limited in their gameplay. Limitations can be seen in boosts that can only be purchased with 2K VC or the need to upgrade your player to compete or have fun.
How have NBA 2K Build Prices Changed Over the Years?
As well as this, there has been a huge difference in the costs for builds from one year to the next. For example, one build may have cost 473,000 VC in one year and 100 for 450,000 VC the following year. This huge difference in cost suggests that prices may continue to increase in NBA 2K23.
Ultimately, it is difficult to say how much more gamers should expect to pay for builds and microtransactions in NBA 2K23. However, based on the evidence, it is likely that the prices will continue to rise. Another matter is whether gamers will pay more money for builds and microtransactions. It is clear that Take-Two is taking an aggressive approach to microtransactions to reach its financial goals, and it remains to be seen how this will affect the gameplay experience.
