He has been saying this for years but never gave a specific price but I could be wrong.

Iíve said this before but if Barkley isnít added fairly soon, nobody will care. I watched him play when he was at his peak. I played video games with stick figure Charles Barkley in them. Iíd love to have him in the game. If I was 18 yrs old, I wouldnít care. As time passes it just wonít be a big deal.

God help us all if Jordan's not the only one. If he's not, he's gonna take it personally....and we all know how that will end. Steve Kerr might want to warn the higher ups at 2K to have some ice and Advil on hand.

I'd also love to see Barkley in the game but you're right. Younger players these days don't really care about old retired NBA players and are 2k's largest demographic who buy the game every year. They just jump directly to Park.

That's still nothing. 2k is part Take Two who earned 3 billion this fiscal year!

How many more units do you think they would move if they included Barkley? Because unless it's moving an extra 1.5 million units, it's a terrible investment for 2K/Take-Two.

SPOILER: Adding an aging former all-star that the kids today only know because he makes outlandish comments in a pre-game show will not move an extra million units, no matter how you butter the bread

I'd say a few million for sure. Barkley is still an icon, around the world, so including him would mean they could add the Dream Team 92 as well as his 92-93 Suns, 96-97 Rockets among others and over the long haul they could definitely benefit from making sure retired players are profiting. Marketing wise they could go nuts with former players going around the country to promote it, Barkley could endorse it, they could sponsor some TNT stuff and get Barkley on their pre-game, half-time and post-game show which would also bring in a more authentic feel. They might even be able to get the TNT license that way. Picture adds at games, TNT promoting it, etc. Would definitely bring in some serious revenue. Ow and I think there's a very solid chance Barkley allowing his likeliness for 2k would make Reggie chance his stance as well.

Not exactly. USA Basketball is a separate entity from the NBA, which is why we only see the Olympic teams every four years.

This is much different from getting his player rights.

We're way past 1 million dollars at this point.

Before we venture too deep into magical Christmas land, he'd want the exact same deal Chuck got. As would every other player that held out.
