NBA 2K11 News Post


IGN's Nate Hearn, recently had a 2K Sports developer walk him through using the recently released PlayStation Move for NBA 2K11. He talks about the new tech and the benefits of adding a third dimension to it.

Quote:
"While it can be played on the Xbox 360 with the usual analog stick setup, it's obvious that the more immersive experience will be on PlayStation 3, even if it isn't the most accurate. Once I got the Move controller in my hand I was told there were three parts to dunking with the new peripheral. First, hold the T trigger to pick up the ball sitting on one of the racks situated on the court. Next, perform a gesture with Move to start the dunk animation, then perform a second gesture to launch into the dunk itself. Lastly, you'll need to let go of the trigger to let go of the ball and slam it through the hoop.

In my short demo with Move, the technology felt very early. Gestures weren't reading properly, timing seemed off and occasionally things felt too sensitive as a casual and slight movement with Move would be read as a gesture to start the dunk. Things weren't aided by the fact that the game doesn't support the navigation controller (apparently Sony just never sent one to 2K) so you're stuck using the Dualshock to move your player around. Here's hoping they can iron out some of the accuracy issues before the game ships in October.

Next up was a demo of the 3D technology that will be releasing later this year. For that, we hopped into a quick game with the Lakers and Celtics. A few elements such as the menu overlays and player icons weren't yet in three dimensions, but everything else seemed to be popping off the screen just as it should. The effect wasn't all that heavy-handed and provided a nice feeling of depth to what I was seeing. When the ball passed in front of a player's hand, it actually looked like it was a foot or so in front, just like it would in real life."

As expected, the writer says the MOVE and 3D are still "early." I can't imagine how much more fine tuning can be done before final build, but you just couldn't expect too much coming from this.

PS3's version is always just a port of the 360. Not only that, but Move and 3D are both in infancy, so how could they get it right the first time around?

So far I've only heard more bad things then good from the MOVE. I understand why Microsoft and Sony would try to get in on this thing that Nintendo is getting rich off of but when it comes down to it the original is best. They are all great in their own right though that is for certain.

the ps3 move will eat the wii alive.

but as far being on topic...imagine being able to actually control the moves we've seen in the demo with ur actually motions and not jus ur finger tips.

2k11 is about 2 get so ridiculous...cant wait any longer actually...(plays demo 4 the hundred thousandth time)

I hate Sony with a passion. But the Move is legit. Kinect? Pain. Wii without the Motion Plus? Ugh!

We will see if there is any real added value to the Move and NBA 2K11...

Why not just buy a basketball and head to a court and play then?

I know im far from even half good in real life lol

What i was saying is that its a game and i dont mind it being played with a controller because its a game.

If i wanted to play basketball (these motion controllers) why not just go and actually play.

Just because it immerses you into the game a little bit more. You "feel" like one of the players. Game 7, 3.3 seconds left, you're at the line, team's down 2, you need these two FTs to stay in it. You're shaking nervously under pressure, you miss both. That's one of those feelings you just can't get on a recreational court, you know?

ehhh ill just stick to the responsiveness off the controller
 
# 11 Rocboyz101 @ 09/18/10 11:16 AM
Its pointless imo, never understood why they even tried it.

2K you guys are the best . over the last ten you were the first on-line basket ball console game now your the first 3D on-line basket ball game with motion controls i can always count on you guys to push the tech. ( i only wish the ps3 was your lead system this year ) now hopefully i can get and 3d tv b4 2k 12 comes out
t
his is for people like me who played the wii and said this would be great if i could play hard core games with motion controls cant wait for baseball

I have a 360.....sooooo.......
 
# 14 Jakeness23 @ 09/18/10 02:18 PM
I believe I am more than okay sticking with 2D...
 
# 15 blues rocker @ 09/18/10 02:42 PM
all this motion control junk is just a bunch of gimmicky B.S. it's a fad...once people get ahold of it and they realize the motion controls can't perform the actions they want, this motion control fad will die quickly. it works for very simple casual Wii type games, but motion controls just aren't responsive enough to work on hardcore games.

Neither the Move or 3D really appeal to me.

In regards to the move working with a game like NBA 2K11. I don't personally think it will be that complimentary. There is so much strategy involved in the game that utilizing the move will become too much of a distraction from carrying out things such as on the fly playcalling.

The idea of 3D technology is sound. However the requirement to wear the 3D glasses puts me off.

Waste of time. No interest in Move or 3D. Sim is just fine by me.

I gotta see that lol....any who I don't plan on buying a move unless a game i truly love is better by using it. That said, I don't think these features they are adding will really be implemented well until next years title. Like us, the developers have to get use to the capabilities of the technology. 3D will be nice to see, but I bought my samsung 55" LED right before the 3D craze hit and really, so I guess I'll miss that boat for the next 10 years or so.
