They announced a limited to 50,000 NXT Edition of the game.
In addition to the base game you'll get:
50% More Points in My Career NXT Enhancement Pack (Nakamura, Crews, Jax) Exclusive Lithograph Autographed by Shinsuke Nakamura 8 Inch "Demon" Finn Balor Figurine An exclusive Topps trading card with a piece of the mat from Takeover: London
Price is $99.99
A little too much for me, unless I can get the price knocked down with a coupon. Especially since I'm sure the Enhancement Pack is included in the season pass which I'd want to buy anyway. Even if they don't include the Enhancement Pack in the Season Pass due to wanting it to be an incentive to buy, I'll just buy it separately.
EDIT: Also to clarify. NXT edition will give you the NXT Enhancement Pack on Launch Day (PS4, XBOX One). Those who don't get the NXT Edition will be able to order the NXT Enhancement Pack at a later date TBD (PS4, XBOX One.) If you purchase WWE 2K17 on XBOX 360 or PS3 then you will be able to purchase the NXT Enhancement Pack on Launch Day. (source: 2K's Twitter account)
Kind of BS that last gen gets access to the Enhancemet Pack first without paying an extra 40 bucks. Oh well I do have a few things to trade in, if I can get the price down to at least $70 I might bite on this. No way in the world $100 is happening though.
I can understand that, figurines like that tend to go up in value pretty quick. I splurged on the Arkham Origin's Collector's Edition and the Joker Figurine that came in that is selling for $100 on Amazon.
Like I say I do have some games I've been sitting on that I know I'm not going back to so I might go out this weekend and see if I can get about 30 bucks. That'll make the season pass free which then sweetens the deal. I just can't really justify spending $130 total (NXT edition + season pass) on this game.
We know more about what we can download than we do the actual game.
Never going to be a fan of creating DLC that is available day one, but will then be locked away for months unless you pre-order or buy some $100 edition before you know anything about improvements made to the game.

^ Yeah at the very least the roster. I mean they literally announced John Cena, The Ultimate Warrior, and Sasha Banks during the "roster reveal." I can understand not having the roster 100% but you should at least be able to announce a good deal of it. Throw out some game modes announcements too.
Hell at this point there is no reason why we shouldn't be able to have 4 on 4 Survivor Series matches and they absolutely need to bring back the three way tag matches. Hate that we've lost some matches we had in the past. I mean I'm a sucker for these games and always have been but there is nothing announced so far to generate interest for your average fan.
I went ahead and ran out since I was just sitting around not doing anything. Ended up getting the NXT Edition for 45 bucks so I think I made out pretty well. Have to see what the pricing is on the season pass but it might be cheaper to buy the packs individually since I'll have no need for the NXT one.
Good deal Monk. I was going over some old games I've beatenthat(or old sports games) I'm never gonna play again in my head, checking trade values on the app and I'm between $30-40 right now. Can probably get around $45-50 at least when I get home and start pulling stuff...provided nothing has a monster decrease by next Wednesday.
And yes, Survivor Series tags were on the damn SNES, why can't we have them now???

There is a lot that's missing from the older games and I don't see any valid reasons for that. One lame excuse I've seen is "if the real product doesn't do this anymore..." Screw that! This is a videogame, give it all to me. Why not?
Today, we get to share with everyone some of our plans for WWE 2K17. We will not get into full details today, as more information will be revealed as we head toward the game’s release on October 11. Instead, we are offering an overview of several features and focus areas for WWE 2K17. Let’s jump right in …
With the WWE 2K franchise, we are striving to deliver the most authentic and realistic WWE experience possible. Fans have been asking us to truly improve the core gameplay experience since we inherited the brand, and we are taking your requests seriously – from controls to presentation to individual features. We’ve shifted the gameplay experience focus from an arcade-centric, fighting game style to simulation-based gameplay, and WWE 2K17 continues pushing in that direction with both improved and new gameplay mechanics. In WWE 2K17, the fans will, more than ever, get to control the action how and where they want, including competing in the crowd and backstage areas. Our community asked for the return of playable backstage and crowd areas, so we delivered on this request. We also greatly improved the responsiveness of gameplay while also updating game systems like Ladders, Taunts and a new secondary submission system. As always, we added thousands of new animations into WWE 2K17, so there is a lot of new gameplay for everyone to discover and enjoy. These are just a few of the gameplay improvements we are delivering in WWE 2K17, all of which will provide the most authentic WWE experience to date.
The WWE 2K17 Creation Suite enables the WWE Universe to customize, build and share their own unique WWE Superstars, Arenas, Entrances, Shows and more. For WWE 2K17, we added new creation features, as well as focused on deepening and providing even more options for existing creation features. For example, we added many more parts, more adjustment options and elements like body hair, all of which add to the game’s massive set of customization options. We also added a full Highlight Replay system, which allows players to record video highlights from their matches. The video content can be used in our new Create a Video feature, which lets players create videos for use in things like custom entrance Titan Tron videos for created Superstars. We also deepened the Create a Show feature and added a brand new Create a Victory feature to ensure everyone can create the most comprehensive WWE experience possible. Whether players build their own worlds or simply expand on existing tools, the power is in their hands.
One of the largest and most difficult decisions we made for WWE 2K17 was to forego building a 2K Showcase. We designed and contemplated several Showcase ideas, including options surrounding our cover Superstar, Brock Lesnar, but all of them were not viable due to the many historic WWE Superstars needed but not available for inclusion in the game. In addition, the team is heavily focused on building and delivering great content that fans can enjoy for years to come, while the Showcases only live in games from year to year. In all, we didn’t feel good about creating a Showcase that was not up to our standards and current development vision, so we decided to take that effort and put it into modes our community requests we keep improving: WWE Universe and MyCareer.
WWE UNIVERSE MODE
In WWE Universe Mode, we are working to recreate the drama and excitement seen every week on Raw, SmackDown Live and NXT. For WWE 2K17, we created a new flow that focuses on these shows. The shows are what we all watch each week, and now with the recent brand split, are even more important. Our new Show Presentation system makes players feel like they are playing through a weekly episode of any WWE television or WWE Network program. We also added more intrigue and possibilities by incorporating run-ins, as well as pre- and post-match attacks. Just like in WWE, we never know what might happen next.
Even with all these new features, presentation and possibilities, we still felt something was missing: promos. In turn, WWE 2K17 will deliver a brand new Promo Engine that lets the WWE Superstars express their thoughts and emotions to the WWE Universe and one another. The Promo Engine creates a new dynamic and brings the experience closer to the actual WWE than ever before. That’s not all – we also are delivering a completely revamped offering of all Universe Mode cut scenes, including familiar and brand new scenarios. Collectively, WWE 2K17 represents the most comprehensive and authentic WWE Universe we’ve attempted thus far.
MyCareer also gets some exciting new features for WWE 2K17. We incorporated the new Promo Engine, so Superstars can express themselves to the WWE Universe and also call out or respond to other WWE Superstars. Backstage interviews with Renee Young take on a whole new dimension with our new backstage brawling gameplay. Now more than ever, how a player competes, reacts, what is said and even what attire is worn can make a difference in a Superstar’s journey through the WWE. At some point, players are also likely to come face to face with Brock Lesnar and his advocate, Paul Heyman. What happens when confronted by this imposing duo will greatly shape a player’s future career growth in WWE.
The above is a select list of the improvements and additions we are making for WWE 2K17. There is a lot more to discuss in the near future, from the features above to online to all the other components we know you’ll ask about, and we will get into more details as we get closer to the game’s release. We are excited to start sharing what we are doing with the game and look forward to letting everyone in on all the exciting things in store with WWE 2K17. After all, the Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar, is waiting for you in Suplex City.
Oh, and since everyone seems to be speculating – yes – the roster is larger than last year.
I don't know, I'm not to thrilled with some of that stuff...
"We’ve shifted the gameplay experience focus from an arcade-centric, fighting game style to simulation-based gameplay, and WWE 2K17 continues pushing in that direction with both improved and new gameplay mechanics."
But the more simulation these games have become, the less fun they have become. The submission system in 16 was a joke. I just want to pick up the game, book my own shows, and play a fun wrestling match. Not have to worry about stamina and what's realistic.
Universe mode has too many issues, and I don't want to see a ton of poorly voiced promos. Renee Young backstage interviews sucked in My Career, all of the interviews and comments in the NBA games made by players suck too.
All I'm seeing is "we're bringing these new features" that are really just features that were in previous games that were removed for no real reason.
Can I have an 8-man tag match? No.
Can I actually run my Universe the way I want? No
Is MyCareer still going to suck? Yes
Arcade style is a better style. From a purely fun perspective, how many people would say the modern games are as fun gameplay wise as WCW/NWO World Tour, WCW/NWO Revenge, WrestleMania 2000, or No Mercy?
I want to be able to book my own shows from scratch, no have to edit what the CPU booked and hope it saves, or worry about them breaking up my tag teams. I want ratings for my shows.
