Was just about to post the YouTube link but I didn't know they had a blog for it, too. Time to watch the vid and get to reading.

I had a heart attack. Someone call an ambulance, because I don't want to die before the 15th!

Also, Ronnie posted in the blog below the video, looks like he's taking questions about the video (you do need a PSN account to be able to post there, since it is the PS Blog).

Geeez oh pete. That was insane looking. The animations shown, the ball interaction, emotion, arenas, lighting... Everything. Wow.

That Harden vs LBJ in the practice arena was stunning looking.

Kudos to 2K. Always impressed by what they show and more importantly what they SAY. Can't wait to play this game.

All kidding aside, that blog was SEVERELY UNDERWHELMING (The reading part).
One example of the Eco-Motion Engine in action is the new fluid nature of player animations. Gone are the days of pre-canned animations that must play out exactly as they were mocapped. Now, players adjust their movements based on the environment around them. Jumpshots will change midair, dribble moves will alter in between dribbles, and players will land in a unique way following every thunderous dunk or block. No two animations will ever appear exactly the same. To illustrate this point, our Dev team recently showed off a looping video of OKC star Kevin Durant taking the same jumpshot ten different times. Sure enough, each clip was unique in some way. In one shot, KD pulled off a perfect shooting motion. But in the next, a defender stepped up and altered the shot, causing him to rush the release and land awkwardly on one foot. These types of play-to-play variations occur constantly in real life sports, but until now itís been a challenge to capture the fluid and dynamic nature of live sports in a video game. Not anymore.
Not underwhelming at all to me. Quite impressive.
