NBA Elite 11 News Post

Hands-On Control
NBA ELITE 11 reinvents the entire basketball experience by allowing you to take control and showcase your skills. For the first time in a basketball video game, all elements of the experience are based on skill, not luck. With the left stick controlling your feet, and the right stick controlling your hands (one-to-one dribbling, shooting, passing, stealing, blocking etc), NBA ELITE 11 offers the most authentic basketball experience yet.

Real Physics
Radically improved game physics rid the days of locked animated sequences leaving you in control of the player at all times. When you drive aggressively to the net and go up with authority, you can be sure that whoever is standing in your way has a pretty good chance of getting tossed to the ground.

Real AI
Driven by the technology of other best in class EA SPORTS titles like Fight Night and NHL, NBA ELITE 11 offers CPU play that truly plays like a real human. Thousands of captured moves (including some captured by Kevin Durant himself) play back when the CPU is on offense. The end result is CPU offensive moves which are extremely responsive and mimic what a user player would do. There are Real AI sequences for dribble moves, post moves, shots, and signature player moves.

Become Legendary
You’re the ultimate star in the all-new Become Legendary - Be a Pro mode. Pick up the demo and start your career in the Jordan Draft Showcase to get drafted into the NBA! Once you land on your new NBA team, work your way through the 23 Legend Levels creating your own unique career, making ESPN headlines and gaining endorsement deals on your way to becoming legendary.

ESPN In-Game Broadcasting
Our primary focus for presentation this year was to integrate the authentic ESPN broadcast package. With this year’s game feeling more like real NBA basketball than ever before, we wanted to make sure that it looked and sounded just like a real NBA game on ESPN. We’re bringing you a dynamic, exciting and realistic experience like no other in which you will truly believe you are in the game.

Online Team Play in past iterations of the NBA franchise has been popular, but lacked a sense of player and team progression. For NBA ELITE 11, we created the EA SPORTS Basketball Association; an online multi-player league, complete with your own created player and created teams. If it sounds familiar it is because we have taken a page from NHL’s EASHL (which has over half a million users).

Included with the purchase of NBA ELITE 11 is a one-time downloadable code that will enable users to access three modes of NBA JAM – Play Now, Classic Campaign and Online. Already set to revolutionize the way basketball simulation games are played, the inclusion of NBA JAM will make NBA ELITE 11 the ultimate basketball video game experience available on the Xbox360.

Great screens, they look really good. Can somebody put the info about the features please? The page isn't loading for me.

LeBron looks like Freeway, with a trimmed down beard.. it's the ROC.
# 6 ParisB @ 09/01/10 06:18 PM
Wow those look awesome. [email protected] people complaining about the graphics or "art" direction.

I think Elite is quietly shaping up to be a nice surprise.
# 7 mlp111 @ 09/01/10 06:20 PM
images look good, lebron does look like Freeway, but the skin tones are still way off!
# 8 blingballa333 @ 09/01/10 06:22 PM
Nice shots.

I like that they finally updated Aldridge and Rudy, they actually look like themselves now. Roy looks a bit different but I cant tell for sure.

I liked the color of the skin in Live 10 better but the texture is better this year. This year the skin is lacking contrast (too dull)

Lebron looks good but something just doesn't look right with his face andf I can't put my finger on it.

1 thing I'm not feeling though is the jerseys; they seem to have too much shadowing going on.

Durant's face is good but he is too bulky.

For those who talk about skin tones:

Durant's face is remarkable!

Other than getting the beard and head band right, Lebron's face is laughably bad. And the bodies are still awkward, lanky with the weird cave man hunch. But I gathered that they hadn't fixed that from the videos.

I don't know. I'm not really feeling the dulled down cartoon look. I mean it looks nice but doesn't inspire any excitement when I see those pics. Its all cerebral if you know what I mean. I don't feel anything when I see them although they aren't bad looking.
# 13 Jamin23 @ 09/01/10 06:36 PM
Lebron looks a lot better than last year. He looks closer to what he looks like in real life this year. I don't think he looks that bad.
# 14 RayDog253 @ 09/01/10 06:47 PM
Is it just me, or does Lebron look like D Wade with a beard???

Looks nothing like Wade... I think Lebron actually looks pretty good

Lebron in Boston

Lebron in LA

Lebron @ Home.

Now IDK if these arenas have similar lighting or not. But in these pics his skin tone dont seem to change much if at all.

Edit: Okay, I say KG and Lebron are a little darker in the Boston pic.

These look better than last year for sure. Still has a cartoon look to them though. Just not as bright.
