Talking The Official RF NBA 2K11/NBA Elite 11 Thread (Raptors ratings on page 9 )

So seeing as the NBA season is over, its time to shift our focus to upcoming NBA video games, and for me, preferably NBA 2K11.

Heres a sneak peek at NBA 2K11, and feel free to post any other info in this thread once there is some.

Quote:
A brief glimpse of "NBA 2K11" was shown off to the media behind closed doors at the E3 video game convention, and from the first look at the new player models to the talk of incorporating Michael Jordan into the game, "2K11" is already one of my most anticipated sports games of the year.

The gameplay on screen focused on the Lakers versus Celtics, with the cyber-bearded Pau Gasol snatching boards, Kobe throwing down dunks, and Derek Fisher knocking down jumpers from beyond the arc. The models are much better proportioned this year, and you can tell the difference from the opening scene of Kevin Garnett strutting off the team bus to the first time you see Rajon Rondo dribbling the ball up court and slicing through the lane for a sick reverse, all already running at a smooth 60 frames per second.

"The arms are now the appropriate length, and the legs aren't so Yao Ming-like and look more like the real NBA proportions," explains producer Eric Boenisch. "The old player model we had in the game for about four or five years, and we had used a guy (in motion-capture) who was 6-6 and had really short arms and it showed in the game."

But ripped, more athletic-looking ballers isn't the only change gamers should expect from the visuals. To get more of a broadcast feel, 2K Sports brought in talent from TNT to work as a producer. This was apparent in every camera angle, every cut, and every menu as the presentation just had a better flow and smoother overall look.

2K Sports really needs to do something this time around. 2K10 was terrible. And all of their other products (MLB, NHL) were terrible as well. They've gotten complacent.

Really, EA's weakest product is the NBA series which is odd seeing how they got the NHL and FIFA products straightened out. Their MMA game is going to destroy the UFC product as well.

Mehhh, to me the best sports games out there are Madden, MLB the Show and NBA 2K.

This sounds good though.

The Show is ridiculous and Madden has stagnated.

I know you don't like hockey or soccer jeff, but from a pure video game standpoint NHL 09 is one of the best sports video games I've ever played with 10 just being a repition. And FIFA 10 is likely the 2nd best game I've ever played. The physics are insane. Beyond arena graphics being lax it's absolutely amazing.

2K while good sucked last year compared to previous offerings. Too many bugs (i.e. mascots and cheerleaders sticking in the middle of the court for quarters and not leaving while still playing a game, poor, recycled voice overs, poor overal game and player physics etc.)

Yo, hit me up on team up sometime. Me and a whole bunch of guys usually play during the evening on team up. Not ranked team up but the player match team up. My PSN is nites90. I've been running the team up thing since the game came out.

I agree, it was an upgrade on 2k9. It had a few glitches, but most of these games do and to be honest it was pretty minor. Great game imo.
