In other news about 2K Sports and music, it was announced this week that Sean Combs AKA Puff Daddy curated the soundtrack for WWE 2K17.

NBA 2K17 releases for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on September 20. You can play the game four days early by preordering the game. You also get some digital content such as virtual currency if you preorder.

This year's cover star is Indiana Pacers forward Paul George, but if you want to spend extra money, you can get the Legend edition, which comes with now-retired NBA legend Kobe Bryant on the box and digital and physical goodies based on the former Los Angeles Laker.
