146w ago - Today Community Manager Yaw of NBA Electronic Arts Canada has shared a video of NBA Elite 11 for PS3 which spotlights new controls and confirms NBA Jam.
To quote: This year, our team at EA SPORTS wanted to create the ultimate basketball experience for PS3 owners.
If you've been following all the news and updates on NBA ELITE, then the first thing that you've seen is the game is no longer called NBA LIVE. So why the name change?
Well, we believe that NBA ELITE will revolutionize the way you think, feel and play basketball video games -- forever. The dev team is driving never seen before innovation in the form of a number of features that are radically different than what you have seen in previous NBA games.
The first change you will see is in the revised control scheme: Hands-On Control. This year you have full control over everything in the game; from offense to defense.
Your shooting is based on skill (not on the dice roll of hitting a button and letting the AI determine your success.) Dribbling is one-to-one movement, you can link moves together seamlessly like; euro-steps, dunk adjusts, spins-moves and so much more.
The second major revolutionary innovation you're going to see is the inclusion...

174w ago - Update: NetFlix has finally shipping out the instant streaming discs for Wii owners. In order to request the disc, you have to log onto the official NetFlix Web site.
After many rumors, today the New York Times has officially confirmed that online movie rental service Netflix will be expanding to the Nintendo Wii console this Spring.
Considering the Wii's small internal memory, it should come as no surprise that this service will require an Instant Streaming Disc in the Wii each time someone wants to watch a movie, just like the PS3.
But while it's speculated that the PS3 will be getting an onboard solution to this problem, the same shouldn't be expected for Nintendo's console.
To quote: "The real winner in this? Netflix, of course. The online rental company has become quite ubiquitous these days. Even now I'm sure that a strong majority of our readership has a little red envelope either ready to be watched or sealed and ready for the long journey back home to the nearest Netflix shipping center.
