2K Sports Announces Michael Jordan – The Greatest Of All Time – To Grace The Cover Of NBA® 2K11
Legendary Former NBA Star Makes A Virtual Return To The Hardwood This Fall
Thursday 3rd June/... 2K Sports announced today that 14-time NBA All-Star, five-time NBA Most Valuable Player, six-time NBA World Champion and recent Hall of Fame inductee, Michael Jordan, will appear on the cover of NBA® 2K11. Jordan, who is considered by many as the greatest basketball player in history, will fittingly team up with the NBA 2K series, the top rated and top selling basketball simulation video game*.
“It’s an honour to be featured on the cover of NBA 2K11,” said Jordan, current majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats. “I have no doubt that NBA 2K11 will be a big hit with gamers and basketball fans alike. I’m looking forward to getting back out onto the court, virtually. Let’s hope they get my dunk from the foul line right.”
2K Sports is paying homage to the NBA legend by placing him on the cover of its award-winning franchise. NBA 2K11 will continue to build upon the outstanding success of the NBA 2K series with continued improvements to the graphics, gameplay, signature styles and game modes seen in previous iterations.
“Without a doubt, Michael Jordan is the greatest of all time and we’re excited to partner with a living legend,” said Greg Thomas, president of product development for 2K Sports. “Working with Jordan adds tremendously to our game and lets us do things with NBA 2K11 that we’ve never been able to do before.”
Last of Us was a very good game, mind. The best they've done, but I certainly wouldn't put it on a pedestal the way its regarded. (0 minute ago)
@AndreasZ94: I just don't think they've done anything that's pushed the envelope or been particularly bold, other than focus on details. (1 minute ago)
@MrWhite: It was a very different ND back then too which is why the company name seems weird today (3 minutes ago)
Then again, its a difference of months rather than years between those and PSX (5 minutes ago)
I don't remember very well but i think my biggest problem with Crash gameplay was the depth perception was weird (6 minutes ago)
@AndreasZ94: I wouldn't go as far as saying it was one of the earliest ones. When I think early 3d, I think 3D0, 32X and Jaguar. (6 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: That's the crux of it. Tomb Raider is a good example of that. Then again, it lent a bit to its charm at the same time with how difficult and tense it made traversing things. (8 minutes ago)
