NBA 2K11 Demo Coming Next Week

Posted September 9th, 2010 at 11:24 am

The demo for NBA 2K11 will be available on Tuesday September 14th for both the Xbox 360 and PS3. It will feature a single quarter of the Celtics vs Lakers but there are no further details on the structure as of yet. Previously it has been insinuated that the demo would include something unique (maybe a Michael Jordan “moment”) but in the announcement no mention was made of anything beyond the standard match-up.

Traditionally 2K Sports has not released demos this early, but it goes in turn with the marketing shift seen this year in which the company has outdone competitor EA Sports with the release of videos, screenshots, blogs, and now the first demo out. Last year with NBA 2K10 the demo arrived only days before the release of the game, due in large part to the Draft Combine being available on the marketplace. With that not in the way this year 2K was able to release the demo earlier. That in turn could lead to a more comprehensive early patch based on community feedback, which the company has missed the opportunity to take advantage of in the past.
