2K Sports Set To Drop 3D Version Of ‘NBA 2K11’ For PS3

2K Sports announced Tuesday (November 2) that the recently released title, NBA 2K11, is coming to the PS3 in 3D!

Coming in just two weeks, the title’s 3D experience will be available exclusively for the PS3 at Best Buy.

The 3D version of the game will play normally on any television set. However, a 3D HD television with compatible 3D active glasses will be needed to enjoy the game in three dimensions. What’s cool is if you already own the PS3 version of NBA 2K11, you can download an upgrade to enable their game to play in 3D for free from the PlayStation Store, but you’ll have to wait until January 2011.

"The authentic broadcast presentation ofNBA 2K11 is something we’re really proud of," said Greg Thomas, president of product development for 2K Sports. "The new 3D capabilities literally add a new dimension to the experience and provide a level of immersion that has never been experienced in a basketball video game."

Now presented in 3D, NBA 2K11 offers an extra layer of depth to what many critics are already hailing as the deepest, most immersive, and best sports game of this generation. In the game, players can become Michael Jordan for the first time and relive his greatest moments with the "Jordan Challenge." With realistic physics, lifelike player models, broadcast-quality presentations and feature-rich simulation, it is the most complete experience ever available in a sports game.

The 3D version of the game, hits stores November 16.
