NBA 2K11 will go 3D on PS3 in January

2K Sports will be making the PS3 version of NBA 2K11 fully 3D-capable through a game update next month, andbeginning November 16, Best Buy will be showcasing the3D versionwithin-store demo stations.

The 3D patch will be available as a free download from the PlayStation Store, but,of course, a 3D TV, 3D glasses, and an HDMI cable are required to take advantage of the upgrade.

It will add to the PS3's growing library of 3D games, which began with downloadable offerings like Super Stardust HD, and now includes EyePet and soon-to-be-released Gran Turismo 5, Sly Cooper Collection, and more.

Madden NFL 11 recently unlocked a 3D mode, but that's with cheap red-and-blue glasses that come packed in with a recent issue of ESPN The Magazine. But following 2K's move, expect more sports games to start taking the plunge into the new sophisticated 3D standard.

"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," said 2K president of product development Greg Thomas.

Yes, they literally do.
