NBA Elite 11 News Post


EBGames has released some new details about NBA Elite 11.

With independent control of your hands and feet, feel the drama and excitement of every game unfold, as you have the ability to change every outcome of every game. Powered by an overhauled controls system that covers all aspects of the sport, and a radically improved physics engine, reinvent your game with NBA ELITE 11.

Expanded Information

* All-New Hands-On Control

o The Game is in Your Hands—For the first time in a basketball video game, dribbling, shooting, passing, and defense are based on skill, fundamentally changing the entire NBA basketball experience. With complete hands-on control outcomes are no longer predetermined, and you become the deciding factor between game-winning shots and momentum-changing blocks.
o Enhanced Dribbling System—The right analog stick controls your hand movements like never before, allowing you to dribble with one-to-one movement unique to NBA ELITE 11. Control the floor with all-new hesitations, spins, behind-the-back dribbles, and much more.
o Call Your Shot—The days of predetermined outcomes based on a random push of the button are gone forever, as the result of every play is based on skill. Each player has a ‘sweet-spot’ and the ability to hit a shot is based on their skill set, defensive pressure, and proximity to the net. It’s up to you to put everything together and hit the shot.
o The Drive to Win—The ability to drive to the net has never been so true to the game of basketball. Independent control of your hands and feet allows you to maneuver and dribble with precision, making the drive down the lane based on skill instead of a scripted defensive reaction.
o Defense Matters—Independent hand controls also allow you to be more strategic on defense as you use the right analog stick to make steal attempts and game-changing blocks.

* Unprecedented Game Physics

o Feel the Game Like Never Before—Radically improved game physics rid the days of locked animated sequences leaving you in control of the player at all times. When you drive aggressively to the net and go up with authority, you can be sure that whoever is standing in your way is going to be knocked to the ground.

I really think this is gonna be the first basketball game I've purchased since NBA 2k8. It's almost like it sounds too good to be true.

One thing can't be argued, it seems they are at the very least having the right mind-set going into this, as far as opening up the game and losing the canned feeling of basketball games. Whether it's implemented well? We'll see about that, but I like their focus here. It will be an interesting few months as more comes out.

More good stuff.

LOL @ driving to "the net" though.

this is a very good direction they are taking. I actually find this bigger news than than the Jordan thing.

So what is new here? Sounds like the back of the box for NBA Live 95; EA needs to stop trying, this is bush

.....I thought this was pretty much in every basketball game for the last 10 years. Even if it wasn't, I assumed it was....so tough to get fired up about this one.

"The Drive to Win"
Again, I am not trying to be a buzz kill here. But in my experience with video basketball games over the years, it seems that there has always been plenty of incentive to drive the lane. I am still waiting for the game where there is genuine incentive to pull up for the 14 foot jumper.

Still no talk of a post game.

Not buying into EA's hype again. Maybe I read it wrong but they are rebuilding this game again??? If so didn't that happen with 06 and it has pretty much been a mess since?

I am gonna be the first to say it that this game will be bug-ridden from the start. Crossing fingers that I am wrong.

I'm not buying in like I did last year with DNA and Dynamic Season. Great idea, poor execution.

I will wait for the demo to make my own decision.

I don't know where you read that, but that's absolutely wrong.
