Giant "uh oh." There's no CD key for NBA 2K9

nba 2k9There are certain things in life that go together: peanut butter and jelly, Smith and Wesson, PC games and CD keys. But in the case of 2K Sports’ NBA 2K9 for the PC, they left out the CD key. What happens when that happens? Well, for one thing, you can’t install the game.

Gamers were complaining on the 2K Sports forum bemoaning the fact that their freshly purchased copies of NBA 2K9 had no CD keys to be found.

Nccomicfan, on the 2K forums stated:

"I think as more people get their copies thru the day this is going to get much much worse…could the entire US release have been packaged without CD keys?"

2K Sports wrote back to one of the many customers who called in the problem and said:

I apologize for the confusion in the matter, it appears that 2K Sports is aware of this issue and working on a fix. Please refer to the link provided below for information from them for a fix for this issue:

The fun of having customers apply for a CD key should be quite entertaining as scores of purchasers must now prove that they, indeed, bought the game.

We sure hope you didn’t throw away your receipt.

No doubt, the testing department at 2K Sports will be getting an earful on how this situation could have passed them up.
