NBA 2K17 will be released worldwide on September 20, but those who pre-ordered the Early Tip-Off Edition will get to start their NBA journey today.

The Early Tip-Off Edition gives players the chance to get the jump on the rest of the world and dive into 2K17 four days before everyone else.

The Early Tip-Off Edition also includes 5000 VC and a MyTEAM Bundle—that comes with a guaranteed Paul George card.

Participating retailers celebrated Early Tip-Off Weekend with midnight releases last night.

Physical copies of the Early Tip-Off Edition were hot commodities, selling out quickly at retailers. However, pre-ordering a digital copy of the Early Tip-Off Edition guaranteed players early access.

Those who were hoping to get their hands on a physical copy of the Early Tip-Off Edition are out of luck, but Microsoft and Sony are still selling pre-order digital copies in their online stores. Anyone looking to start his or her 2K17 experience early still has a chance to do so. So what are you guys waiting for?
