NBA Elite 11 News Post

Joystiq has posted their preview of NBA Elite 11.

"And you know how EA promised NBA Elite 11 would rely less on luck for shooting and would instead implement something skill-based? Well, it works -- depending on your player's skill level and proximity to the hoop, a "sweet spot" will either grow or shrink. This is shown in a radar-like meter in the top-right corner of the screen. The straighter you push the right stick, the more accurate your shot will be and the closer you are to the hoop, the more forgiving your shots will be should you move the right stick a bit to the left or right during shooting.

EA has also taken the physics and animations back to the drawing board. No longer are two players tied together with an invisible rope, which makes interactions between the two more realistic. This means that you won't get stuck in lengthy, canned animations during which you lose control of your player or accidentally step out of bounds. Now, the animations are as long as you deem fit and players collide and interact more naturally. Stealing is even more realistic because of this: defensive players can swipe at the ball using the right stick, taking advantage of an unsuspecting player, rather than hammering on a steal button and hoping they'll eventually pop the ball out."
