NBA 2K11 demo hits Xbox 360, PS3 today

2K Sports is dribbling a demo for NBA 2K11 on to Xbox Live and PlayStation Network today.

The demo will let players relive the thrill of last season’s NBA Finals, playing one quarter as the Los Angeles Lakers or Boston Celtics. What you should be looking for are the games overhauled “IsoMotion Dribbling” controls, shot control, and fancy new graphics. They are quite fancy.

The game is out for PlayStation 3 (with Move support!) and Xbox 360 on October 5. That’s the same day EA Sports’ basketball offering, NBA Elite 11 (which ships with a free copy of the updated NBA Jam) hits those consoles as well. Which basketball title are you rooting for this year?
