NBA 2K12 features PlayStation Move – graphics stunning

By Updated on

Quite a few hours ago we got to see NBA 2K12 in action at E3 2011, during its reveal 2K Sports demonstrated the game’s support for PlayStation Move and claimed that the controls were very simple.

Kobe Bryant then came onto stage to test out the game and did let it slip that he had been practicing backstage, we have embedded the video below, watch it and let us know whether you think the game looks harder to control than 2K Sports are making out.

In the video you see Bryant taking 3-4 attacks before he manages to score and it also looks like he is having a bad time defending, we’re not sure whether the game’s difficulty is to blame or perhaps the new control system is not as easy to use as 2K Sports are suggesting, what do you think?

During the press event we were told that to pass the ball simply point towards the player you want and press “A”, to shoot simply point at the net and press a button, to steal point towards the ball and press a few buttons, as you can see the controls look simple enough but we wonder what its like in the real world.

One thing which was evident during the demonstration was the game’s amazing graphics, the game looks almost real and runs very smoothly, Bryant at one point calls the game “frightening realistic” and we have to agree.
