Are you having a hard time figuring out what basketball video game to add to your collection for the PS3? It can be tough to choose just one with the array of great basketball video games that are currently available for the Playstation 3 and some of the best ones are just now hitting the stores. Almost every die-hard basketball fan not only plays basketball video games, but also anxiously wants for the new batch of games to be released at the beginning of the basketball season. As the new basketball season approaches, basketball video gamers will drool at the mouth to get a good look at what’s new for this basketball season. This season saw the return of “His Airness”, Michael Jordan in NBA 2K11, helping it become the top basketball video game for the Playstation 3. Here is a look at the best three basketball video games that are currently available for the PS3.
NBA 2K11 – The battle between 2K Sports and EA Sports in the basketball genre has been a back-and-forth battle since 2K joined the genre in 2000. Both companies have video game enthusiasts that will swear by one franchise being by far better than the other. However, in recent years, the overwhelming vote has swung in favor of 2K Sports. NBA 2K11 is the latest release in this basketball franchise, and brings a new player to the franchise. All hail to 2K Sports and Michael Jordan. Gamers can now play as Michael Jordan during ten of the most memorable games of his career. This is just another feature adding to the reasons to pick-up a copy of NBA 2K11 for your PS3 or other gaming system. NBA 2K11 remains the most realistic basketball simulation in the video game industry and the graphics are solid. The only con that can be found with NBA 2K11 is that the online play, although slightly improved from last year, still lags too much. NBA 2K11 will bring you countless hours of enjoyment and is well worth the $59.99 price tag at any Walmart, Best Buy or Game Stop.
NBA Street Homecourt – For anybody that is looking for an arcade type style of basketball video game for the PS3, NBA Street Homecourt is a must buy. The game will remind old video game ballers of the NBA Jam games from the Super Nintendo days. With NBA Street Homecourt, you get that unrealistic, but fun kind of game play with a lot more control and better graphics than what you used to use with NBA Jam. The game is great fun and will provide plenty of eye-popping dunks and moves, but unlike NBA 2K11, it has a limited amount of replay ability. The great part is that it can be bought brand new for only around $15-$20 on Ebay. The question is will this game remain in the top three once the highly anticipated PS3 edition of NBA Jam hits the store shelves?
NCAA Basketball 10 – Some people just prefer college sports over pro sports, and for those people, EA Sports provides the goodies. NCAA Basketball 10 is by far the best college basketball video game for the PS3. It has great graphics and does a great job of grasping the difference between the college and pro games. The array of motion offenses and the thrill of bringing your favorite college team into March Madness provides a guilty pleasure for any sports gamer. This little slice of college fever can be found for $59.96 at any gaming store.
