The holiday season is in full swing in NBA 2K23‘s MyCareer mode, and one of the most popular features has returned: the Christmas Tree. In past iterations of the game, the Christmas Tree has been a source of generous rewards for players, often giving out hundreds of thousands of VC (virtual currency); however, this year’s NBA 2K23 holiday festivities have been different for players on different platforms.

Current Gen players were able to visit the Christmas by the Deuces Courts on the Platinum Deck on Christmas Day to claim their present, which turned out to be a Snowman T-Shirt and 10 Rebounding Boosts. However, the promotion only went live in-game at 8 PM ET, leading to some disappointment among players. Meanwhile, Next Gen players were given a 12 Days of Giving Locker Codes promotion instead of the traditional Christmas Tree.
In addition to the Christmas Tree, Next Gen players also had access to the Naughty or Nice 2XP event on Christmas Eve, which rewarded players who wore holiday gear while playing games outdoors throughout the City. On the other hand, current Gen players are still participating in the Festive Balling event, which has a different in-game event planned every day until New Year’s Day. If you are a Play Now or MyNBA player, definitely take a closer look at NBA 2K23 on next-gen.
We are in year three of NBA 2K on next-gen consoles. NBA 2K21 was a decent jump from the previous generation. NBA 2K22 made some good strides with its MyPlayer Builder and gameplay, even if the game was filled with enough microtransactions and advertisements to make EA jealous. So, how does NBA 2K23 measure up with our review? As a MyCareer player, the answer to that is pretty disappointing. For more, check out our review.
