? All i ask was "oh really?" because i thought that this was nba 2k11 and not nba 2k10

and i wasnt sure you were telling the truth because the title of the video was nba 2k11 and all the pictures say nba 2k11


Shoulda just said oh really then because that pic looks and is used for sarcasm..

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. n terms of gameplay, not much was talked about other than the fact that the design team is finally scrapping the Isomotion control system in favor of a "simpler" control layout. "Isomotion was too limiting, too abstract, and just not natural," Boenisch says. "And with the new offensive system (2K wouldn't give specifics on the new dribbling system just yet), we also added some new defensive animations to match, both on and off the ball."Everything else is about polish," explains Boenisch.


"We had a great game last year, but it was marred by bugs." These bugs really hampered the online experience in "2K10", but Boenisch says that the team is focused on eliminating these problems in "NBA 2K11". Adds Boenisch:


"The most important thing for us is delivering a game that is easy to control and is completely bug free and polished. That's so, so important to us. We know that, and our fans deserve that, and that's what we're going to deliver. "And of course, Michael Jordan's on the cover. You can't go wrong with that."

Beauty shots and pics are great, but is the play as rickety and completely off-base as it was with 2K10?

If so - no thanks.

"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."

Thank you designer(s) for proving in print that last year's game was inherently flawed on many levels. I love how he said last year's game was marred by bugs but then goes on to say how being bug free is so important to them.

Terrible press release.

Yeah guys, Jordan being on the cover doesn't make up for wasting people's $60. Make a good game and take your time on it. 2K games (and the Live series up until last year as well) are just a constantly declining sector of video games.

I agree with a couple people on here. Take your time, skip a year if need be and make a high quality game. Then instead of re-releasing the same flawed games, update the rosters every year. Charge $20 for the update and keep working on improving the game itself. If a new one is released every 2 years or so, but each time it's a marked improvement, the end result will get them more money.

I hope 2k isn't expecting to that just since MJ is on the cover it'll become a great game again. EA is catching right up on to them.. So they gotta get going again.

It may look the same because there really is no need to improve something that is perfect already except this time around we get to use JOHN WALL and BLAKE GRIFFIN!!!!!

:rock: :rock:


Word, 2K is the only bball game i play! But i hope they fix myplayer and make it harder, once you get in the high 80's & 90's overall its way too easy.

Some other gaming companies who are good at making video games such as Infinity Ward, Valve, Rock Star, Blizzard should make basketball games. That would be awesome

To the people who think it's getting boring.... I just cannot agree.
The season mode looses steam after a while but that was never why I played this sort of game.
Me and my fellow die hard b ball fans ALWAYS buy the new version to compete against each other.

It's not even funny how big of a rivalry we all have, and how good we have all gotten with different teams.
I dunno, the bragging rights alone make it worth it for me to want to play this game.

NBA Elite (Formerly NBA Live) looks like it might be able to become the best basketball game on the market again. I'm thinking of switching over to Elite if the 2K series doesn't make any big changes.

Yo, what do you think bout this:
We all vote and decide which BB game to buy from the 11 series and we all buy the same. We vote basing on the trailers and reviews and all that [expletive]. The idea is that we could make a league here in TLN and play against eachother, and help eachother getting those trophies
What do you think guys?
