NBA Elite 11 News Post

Our friends at NLSC have posted their NBA Elite 11 community event impressions. Look for more detailed info later this month from all of the community event members.

Quote:
"There are several producers from NBA Live 2005 working on Elite 11, which is great news. One of our recent polls at the NLSC resulted in NBA Live 2005 being the best Live ever. The producers were very open to our suggestions and we had extensive back and forth conversations about sports games in general. We told them things we liked and disliked about some of the sports games and what the Live series had been missing. Interacting with the producers and seeing them write down some of our ideas and gripes was stimulating, as they definitely showed how interested they are in creating the best basketball game that they can. I loved touring the NBA developer space and seeing where the game gets made. We found a couple issues from the build we played and after reproducing them in the dev space, they fixed them with a few clicks. It took them 30 seconds to fix what used to take hours or days in the past.

For all the people who thought that they didn't know basketball, guess again. We played against them on their NBA regulation court and these fellas could ball. One of them even threw down a nasty dunk on a fast break. Having not played full court basketball since I can remember, I was sore for two days after playing."

"EA Sports has had a sore reputation lately when it comes to basketball. While they have provided some good innovations, the fans still wanted something that Live just didn't provide. Don't get me wrong, NBA Live 10 is a good game, but after getting my hands on NBA Elite 11, I couldn't finish a quarter of Live 10. The differences are night and day. "

Awww, junk.

I noticed when I went to an EA Community Event last year everybody was awe-struck and not speaking up. Many of them were just happy to be invited. I hate when people are not outspoken, they ruin it for everyone.

Remember to boycott EA guys. So they will stop this whole charging for online codes on used games. This is the only price competition left for us gamers. Remember last time their was price competition, EA colluded with NFL to buy the licenses thus ending the competition between Madden ($60) and NFL 2k5($20) and continuing their tradition of crappy football games.
I guess you probably won't be buying either game soon then... Take Two has expressed interest in the online pass as well...

I feel u, ken, and what I failed to add to my statement was the fact that I LOVED how Live 10 played, for the most part, so that highlighted part of that quote from the article is related to that.

As for MarkAdrianPI's statement, YAWN, the whole "fight the EA" are so tired. "Remember to boycott EA guys..." U go right ahead and do that. No dice over here.

That's fine that you want to hold off judgment but with you making that comment that we are in aww because we went makes you sound bitter and uniformed. We are stating what we saw and gave our early impressions Nothing more.

My perspective of your comment is that you are quite misinformed. I am aware that you don't know me or anything about me due to the fact that we have never met. The second fact that you were not there, contributes to your inability to gauge my response to being in the EA Sports Canada facility. But since your assumptions are seriously incorrect and unfounded, I will clarify my status for you. I was not awed by seeing an under developed game nor do I hold my tougue out of fear of offending someone. As a consumer, I feel that I have the right to tell it like it is when it comes to video games, especially baskeball ones. I'm not pro EA or 2K, I'm pro basketball. If you have read any of my posts over the last 3 years you would know that about me. Your comment did not offend me at all but I wanted you to know that predjudicing my comments according to some biased idea about a particular group of people, in my opinion, is rather shallow.

The most intelligent comment I read from your post is that you will be reserving your opinions until a personal review. I think that everyone could do that in October but if you value an unbiased accessment of this year's titles, my perspective could be a strong one for information. You can watch all of the videos you like but until you get the controls in hand, you can't get a feel for how different the game is this year.

99% of the guys who attend these events fall over themselves not to criticize EA publicly.

The community events - I've been to two - are fun to attend, but what's the point if you can never be publicly critical again?

The fact that DaCzar wasn't at the NBA Elite event makes me suspicous immediately. A guy who told it like it was ... not invited.
pared says hi seriously goto the 2k side with your bull**** conspiracy theories

LOL, you're gonna boycott their entire list of games because Madden sucks...NHL, Fifa, Fight Night are terrific games.

I wish EA Canada would just take over the production of all the games.

lol, coming from a guy who's name is "earulez!" ... You obviously don't follow many people on the forums, because almost all of us "tell it like it is" too... just like Da_Czar.

Never trust a guy with 6 posts and been here 4 months, You don't even know the reason why he did or didn't go so your credibility is already shot.
 
# 13 ParisB @ 06/07/10 10:11 PM
I'm cautiously excited. I trust the guys at the event enough to know that they didn't get paid under the table to hype up the game.

We were quite outspoken, some more than others. Everybody got more into it as we got more comfortable and we all had a discussion where we basically grilled past Live's with the word "********" being thrown out a couple times.

Nobody who went there was a "yes" man. Everytime we were shown something, we had a question or an idea. I think it's one of the reasons I heard the phrase "best community event ever" from a producer and Pared, who has been to one before.

The whole point of us being there so early was to be critical, using constructive criticism. You really think EA is going to pay thousands of dollars to fly people to their studio so they can hear them talk **** about their game?

Let's not mention those wonderful on-camera interviews....

My favorite convo was the Sundiata Gaines game winner talk and Kobe and Lebron Should not be 99...Those pigybacked off each other but That was one of the heated Debates I had, But seriously, ALOT of things were thrown out during our time there, it wasn't a love fest it was hard questions that were asked and such...
