NBA 2K18 Players Are Disappointed With Removing The Custom Shirts Depicting Real Brands

Posted time: Dec 11,2017


The NBA 2K18's custom shirt store is full of shirts with that look like designs from Supreme or soccer player jerseys. 2K has been removing shirts with copyrighted material, and some players are not happy to see them go.

In NBA 2K18, players can create a custom shirt in myCareer mode, which can be then voted on by other players. These are pure cosmetics items that will appear on the player characters in the myPark portion of the game, where players play 3 on 3 street basketball. If the shirt reaches 100 votes, the player who created it can sell it for the game's virtual currency, VC. The shirts were originally for 3500 VC, but 2K made all custom shirts free last month. You can buy 15,000 VC for five dollars. The problem is that a lot of players are making shirts with copyrighted logos or mimicking real brands. 

Both Reddit and YouTube players are saying that both shirts they have created and shirts they have purchased are being removed from their inventories. One player who reached out to Kotaku was able to get a shirt refunded for his shirts, but said that he only received 10,000 VC, the price of about three shirts, when he said he paid for 10 shirts at a total of $ 3,500 VC each. You can earn VC by playing games or by buying it with real money, so losing VC is expensive for either the player’s time or wallet. 2K did not respond to requests for prompt comments for publication.

If you go to the in-game T-shirt kiosk and look at the submissions currently being voted on, you will immediately see a lot of copyrighted content. In fact, the highest voted shirt at the moment is a regular black t-shirt with the Superman logo on it.

It is a a bit of a struggle to find a shirt that does not have copyright material. Other shirts featured logos from characters like the Punisher, and designs from brands like Supreme. You can also find jerseys for players from other sports. 2K sells  licensed NBA jerseys for VC in the game and has shirts with logos for brands like Gatorade and Mountain Dew, which you can buy(NBA 2K18 MT) for 249 VC each after completing the game quest. Searching for “custom shirts NBA 2K18" on YouTube will yield dozens of tutorial videos on how to make such shirts. Taking down shirts featuring images and designs that 2K doesn’t have the right to makes perfect sense,  but players are still frustrated by the changes. Players were eager to recreate their favorite brands wen custom t-shirts were announced. NBA 2K18's myCareer mode is all about for everyone feels unique to each person, and these fans will consider themselves as people making content that players want from the game. One confused player who saw his shirts removed lamented in a YouTube video, “They rejected all of my shirts! ‘Polo With Gucci Belt,’ what’s wrong with that?”
