Pippen finally signs deal for 'NBA 2K13'
By Darren Rovell
Two weeks ago, officials with Take-Two Interactive announced that its NBA 2K13 game would have the 1992 "Dream Team" in it. Everyone except Scottie Pippen that was. The video game maker and the former Chicago Bulls star could not come to terms on a deal.
But, on Tuesday afternoon, the company announced that due to "feedback on forums, social media and community interactions," Pippen eventually signed a deal that will allow gamers to play with him both on the 1992 Dream Team and on the classic Bulls teams.
Pippen, Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley had to be signed separately because they are not part of the retired players group licensing deal.
The game hits stores on Oct 2 and retails for $59.99.
