NBA 2K11 News Post

2K Sports has just posted another NBA 2K11 Developer Insight, going over the controls in the game.

"The number of moves you can pull off in NBA 2K11 is pretty insane. When you get your hands on the game this fall, one of the first things I’d recommend to everyone is to navigate to the Main Menu and go to --> Options --> My Controller --> Advanced Controls. Here, we’ve detailed most of the major things that we’ve added to the on-court experience. Of course, in typical 2K fashion, we’ve left some of the moves off the list for you to discover on your own as you play the game. As a game designer, one of the ways I’ve always gone about my work is to study real NBA games and translate what I see into game mechanics. For me, if I can pull off everything I see on TV in our game, then I’m pretty happy with the controls. And with NBA 2K11, there’s very little (if anything) that you can’t do on the sticks to replicate your favorite real life moments. I remember being in motion capture with a few of the swingmen we brought in to do some new dribble moves and shots. Walking the guys through what we wanted them to do, on more than one occasion they would say, “that’s a great move, I’m gonna start using that” or “man, you guys got every move in the book in this game!” Coming from NBA-caliber talent, that’s a nice acknowledgement to how in-depth some of the moves in our game have become."

2k11 is going to be something else

I hope they put the full moves into the manual or a disclaimer on the game saying to download the full manual for move pack. Because I remember 2k8 did this exact thing, and the manual book was thin..and reviews bitched about it like there was no end.

2k definitely has been on a roll man they know how to get the gamer prepared for there release and people always want them to drop information every week like i do but look how everybody is excited to play this game and nba live/elite always telling us whats new with there game and you don't really have that urge to go get it seeing how you know everything thats going to be in it

This is just too much for words.

The new dunk controls appear snazzy. I'm pumped about choosing when I'm going to hang on a flush attempt.
# 11 greenegt @ 08/26/10 01:59 PM
The new controls are much better. I have not been this hyped for a game in years. Incredible!

Man...I have to agree...The way its sounding right now. With the MJ deal. And the gameplay...The visuals...We might be talking about the G.o.a.t.

At this point can anyone in their right mind possibly keep a straight face when hearing "Dunno, it's just 2K10 but with Jordan".

their move, like rondos fake pass would be different from rose's

Best blog ever haha!! Is exactly what I wanted to hear they improved every one of my concerns from last year. The new shot control sounds great and the interruptible moves is something I've been wanting for a while now.

This game is definitely going to be the best bball game this year (and maybe one of the best ever) if everything comes together like they say. I can't wait for the demo to drop to finally get my hands on this one.

I'm pumped about that move. I will guess it will not be able to be pulled off every time down the court and I know the example I have below is Vince Carter, but this is a play that definitely exists and is pulled off by a multitude of players so I'm pumped to see it so smoothly executed in 2K.

Those just happen to be the first two that come to mind because I'm a huge Vince fan.
